Re: Tonight's dinner?

slow roast leg of mountain lamb ( went in the oven about an hour ago ) stuffed with garlic and rosemary
med veggies ( aubergine , peppers etc with a good dose of olive oil and oregano ) will be going in the oven --- ohhh --- I guess in about an hour and I'm trying a reduction gravy with a bottle of rose ... don't know how that will work out.

If I wasn't a veggie, I'd say that sounds very wonderful!

As for us, a lovely spicy pinto bean chilli and Cremeschnitten for afters.

Plenty of wine too!

Now, why on earth would anyone stuff a sausage skin with blood, and then call it a pudding? Why not just drink the blood in liquid form?
That's a question I asked my self and a lot of english people. (nobody can answer it)
Same with yorkshire pudding. They're not exactly sweet.

But I like the tradition of slaughtering (metzgete) because everything of the animal was/is used. Blood, ears, nose, feet, tails, skin and of course the obvious parts.
Will attend a Metzgete beginning of November as every year and looking forward to it!

Tonight my OH is making a roast beef with the usual suspects such as yorkshire pudding, roast potato, gravy and a lot of veggies.
YUMMY! I love cold weather....

Sounds delicious. You really shouldn't have gone to so much trouble.

We'll be there at about 7 for aperitifs.

Whole?

That's the way I like them, whole milk-fed lamb (or goat or pig), cooked in the smoker for five hours!

Meanwhile, roe-deer and chicken filets, red cabbage, salad, with Swiss-chard pie as an appetizer.

I'm sure he'd be happy that his demise was for such a good cause!

I looked up Pasticcio, and it looks delicious, obviously we'd substitute poor little lambkins with something less meaty!
We're having chick pea pasta with garlic, chilli, oil and plenty of parmesan tonight, then Creme Brulee ( French today for you Geneva-ites!)

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Is that pasta made from chickpeas or pasta with chickpeas ?
either it does sound quite nice -- much to mrs g's chagrin I've been on quite a chilli kick these days -- on the nights I cook.



ps if you don't know Greek dishes , look up moussaka .. very similar to above but made with eggplant

With!
And it is nice, like you I love my chillies, as you can see from this weekend's menu!
