Re: Tonight's dinner?

After 3 days of fasting for some doctors tests, I'm just about to tuck into grilled aubergine and green tomato salad with rocket and parma ham and half a BBQ'd chicken.

Crusty bread to mop up the juices and an afternoon off.

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!
Argus, I am sure I have asked you this at least twice in the EF past: can I please come live with you, just for a wee while..

Late afternoon, a little cooler maybe, packing up kids, cool bags, and food; off to the Greifensee, put kids in lake, put marinated chicken and fish on bbq.. eat with salad and fresh Ciabatta Brot, sit my bum down and just gaze at lake - 10 years and I am still in awe of the how beautiful it is here in Summer

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Tonight's Tantalisingly Tasty Teatime Post-teleportation Treat for weejeem is a rather nice piece of proper steak (Orkney Gold Angus, none of yer Schweizer Qualität rubbish), and as many fresh langoustine tails as I have room for.

Attachment 31338


The chips, mushrooms, sautéed onions, grilled mushrooms and tomatoes, and buerre blanc are taken as read, of course.

Because of you I had anchovies on warm buttered crumpets for tea.
Even the dog was interested. Why do I say 'even'? Anything that stinks, she likes. Washed down with cold caffe latte.

She'd like it, but I won't. Am one of the few Malaysians who cannot abide by durians unless they're cooked to death.

Bummer, it makes a truly delicious ice-cream, though only my girl-friend and I like it, no-one else will touch it!

Luckily, BOTH of you like it - or there'd be no kissing for the next 8 hours.

I may have to - I mean there's a limit to how much good steak and fresh seafood that a man can eat



It's a very high limit, I'll grant you

Re: Tonight's dinner?

A desert, not exactly a dinner, but so nice. I think my chocolate sauce I use on banana split owes credit to Migros cooking chocolate and quality cream I get in Lidl. The ingredients are superb. I melt Migros cooking chocolate, with a bit of plain butter, liquid cream, some whole milk, vanilla esence and brown sugar. Cook a bit. Pour on banana and ice cream. The bestest. And most fattening, but what a comfort bomb. Lidl does also very nice unsweetened whipped cream in a can, ready to spray.

Homemade beef burgers (no herbs just meat- my favourite!) with mexican spicy cheddar . I'm going to miss Asda's cheese prices when I move to Zurich on Wednesday!

Papadums, Punjabi Chicken Masala, home-made Naans, kachumber salad and cucumber raita.

Really looking forward to it after a few pints.
