Re: Tonight's dinner?

I think I killed my Fall Pumpkin Soup record tonight, honestly..so nice. I am a chronic soup maker so it's nice to have proper weather for it.

Dice onions, potatoes, and carrot, fry them for cca 10mins on a bit of oil, then throw in Tikka masala paste, some dried Tikka spice mix, cinnamon, cumin, a turmeric spice mix, salt, a bit of brown sugar, and fry a tad, until the paste and spices wrap around all veggies. Easy on the spices so they don't kill the gentle and sweet flavor of vegetables. Add some butter. Pour in 3/4l of boiling water and veggie bouillon without msg.

Then added diced 3/4 kilo of nice fresh pumkin and stew the hell out of that bad boy under a lid, it took about 15min. Blend it all smooth and add sour cream.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Technically speaking last night's dinner...

A packet of Tyrrell's crisps, some cheese and two large glasses of white wine.

Beat that!

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Shepherd's pie gleefully renamed Shepherd Dog's Pie (as other half wants our second dog to be a German Shepherd), based on Nigel Slater's recipe with added bacon bits in the meaty filling and grated grana padano on the mash topping.

Dessert was red beet spice cake, own concoction.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Will have to check out Nigel Slater's Shepherd Dog's Pie.

Diced some chicken last night, and it's been marinating in a Sweet (homemade) Japanese sauce overnight. Will slice a leek, 'dry fry' then removethat, then cook the chicken, add back the leeks and add the marinade and ensure that all is hot.

Serve over a bed of steamed basmati rice, sprinkle some shredded seaweek (nori) over it all and there's my dinner

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Monday was pumpkin soup, Tuesday was pumpkin Tortelli and ravioli, Wednesday was Capuns, last night was pasta, and tonight it's pumpkin risotto with sausage and shrimp.

Tomorrow will probably be octopus risotto and some other fish.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

We have friends over for dinner, so Mrs. G. is preparing a Thai-style beef shin casserole. Smelt bloody delish last night and the reduction will just concentrate all those flavours. Possibly Vietnamese spring rolls for starters .

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Stir fried sliced veal and shitake mushrooms served with steamed rice. So quick to prepare and absolutely delish.

YUM! I miss roast legs of lamb so much!

Man, this thread is DANGEROUS

This was actually lunch, but I had fish 'n' chips and a 1/2 Murphys at an irish pub not far from work... If I can find some decent fish, I might try and make it myself now that the weather's more suited to it

Re: Tonight's dinner?

My wife is making Vietnamese spring rolls, we stopped in the shop owned by her ex-brother-in-law to get the ingredients, CHF 160!

(OK, there was also a whole beef filet and a kg of porcini involved in the cost, but they don't go in the spring rolls)
