Re: Tonight's dinner?

My favorite chicken ragú, I think I made it up, actually. It's a goulashy recipe I remember eating in school canteen. Works with turkey just as well.

Fry diced onions on hot oil, throw in cubed fresh chicken breasts and fry for a min, until the meat seals. Add a tb spoon or two of smoked paprika powder, and fry for about 30sec, not too long so the paprika does not get bitter.

You can add a spoon of tomato puree if you want a richer flavor, garlic, too. Then add some cream and about one tb of creme fraiche, a cup or half of water, depending how wet you want the ragú to be.

Then stir in cut up mushrooms, I did it last with brown ones, champignons, they taste better. If you have mushoom buillion, you can add a bit, also a pinch or two of salt and fresh pepper.

Cook all for another ten mins or so, just to have mushrooms soft but not overcooked and meat tender.

I add some green onion stems, cut up, or chives, a bit of oregano doesn't hurt either to the end of the cooking. A bit of thyme will go with this well, too.

Serve with rice.

It's super quick, a nice way to please a kiddo, too, since my family likes sauces and meat meals. Not too expensive, either. I only found smoked paprika at home, but Migros now sells a nice mix of BBQ spices, in a tin, it's hot so for kids use just a pinch, and it has a strong smoked aroma as well (not as nice as real smoked paprika, but does the job well, otherwise, beware of some EU recalls of smoked aroma products, due to assumed toxicity).

It's last night dinner and tonight, you can tell kitchen hits, since they can be eaten 2x in a row

THIS is what I'm having for dinner tonight!
I was able to lock myself up in my dungeon for half an hour while my husband took care of the children. It smells delicious and I can't wait to gobble it all up! I know I'll have a party cleaning up the rice after my kids have had a chow down but I know it's going to be so worth it!

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Gonna add to the summer smog and fire up the bbq. My neighbours use gas but I use those aviation fuel lighters and charcoal stuff. With absolutely no wind about I expect to cause a total smoke out within about 5 minutes

No food tonight. Giant bowl of frozen watermelon, crushed with a few shots of vodka poured on top. It's Sunday and I deserve it!

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Was going to say 'nothing' cos it's too darn hot, but now I quite fancy what Economisto's having. If I had any watermelon, or vodka. Will have to put up with white wine and lots of ice. Tiramisu for dessert. Then more wine.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Last night, dinner up in the boonies of Vallemaggia where my daughter works (albeit after she got off work), Swiss food, listening to all the tourists speaking English ("strange", said daughter, "when they first arrived they were speaking Italian with a German accent!").

Tonight, various cheeses (or what used to be cheese) from the depths of the fridges!

Tomorrow, meat-loaf (asked daughter, as she is off tomorrow and coming home for a night or two).

Tom

Re: Tonight's dinner?

salmon-mushroom pasta. fry onions-garlic, add hedgehog mushrooms (from Saint Louis market), white wine, some cherry tomatoes, capers, whatever herbs you have in the garden (I used thyme and oregano), cream - very last thing some salmon, don't overcook it. Serve with penne or fusilli and some nice Pinot Gris.

I deserve it like Economosto deserves his watermelon, I've been doing massive amounts of sports this weekend. CX30 ( http://www.lesmills.com/france/cx30/...ess-class.aspx ) instructor now, woohoo!

Now, it's ok to lick your plate if nobody's watching, right?

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Have grown rather fond of a Laotian minced meat salad:

Three cm of galangal is pureed with lemongrass, kaffirlime leaves, garlic and onions.
This rough paste is fried on medium-low heat for a few minutes before adding the meat and a couple of spoons of fish sauce, flaked dried chilli, salt, pepper and raw sugar.
Leave to cool, then mix with a big spoon of milled toasted-glutinous-rice and a generous squeeze of lime juice.
Roughly chop up some mint leaves, coriander leaves, green beans or whatever veggies you fancy - add to the minced meat mixture.
Add some strips of thinly sliced kaffirlime leaves if you like the extra punch.
Very appetizing!
