Re: Tonight's dinner?

Spaghetti con falsa bolognese; falsa, because I often make it with -- horribile dictu -- marinated tofu instead of beef. Plus a rich tossed salad including some pecans, dates, pumpkin seeds and a nice, freshly made dressing. Simple enough, but I worked till 6 p.m..

My AOH flew back to the USA last week, where black angus beef tenderloin is cheaper than tofu.

I love tofu and have a penchant for the smoked one.....

Your salad sounds divine. I recently had a winter salad in a local restaurant with mixed leaves (chicory, cos, curly endive) and pecans, dried cranberries, figs and an elderflower dressing. Not authentically wintery, I suppose, but absolutely delicious with a glass of sauvignon blanc.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Going to someone else's house for dinner tonight... apparently we're having lamb. Mmmm...

I've selected a wine that should go fairly well with it (although I got a crianza and not a joven as, although the acidity of a young wine is supposed to be better for fatty meats like lamb, I prefer not to have such a sharp edge!) and bought a box of Ferrero Rocher. I hope they crack those open at the end of the meal, they've been sitting on my dining table for days now and I really want one!

Just try one...you know one ain't going to kill you, plus you know they won't notice if one is missing.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Don't be evil, I've been really good so far. I've decided that, if they don't open them this evening, I'm going to buy a box for when my mummy comes next Friday.

I didn't see Nicola's original post! I was actually less gassy after that than after the salad I'd had a couple of nights earlier. So, I don't know if what I eat will make any difference with that particular issue, but it might help with the weight loss. Of course, any good done with the soup will soon be undone with the wine and lamb.

I did mention too much wind can have effects up to 6 on the richter scale.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Apart from Ferrero Rocher (of course), anyone have a good idea for a seduction dinner?

I need one soon and it has to be easy but impressive at the same time (if this is possible!)
Don't want to be stuck washing up, no matter how good it was.......

Any ideas for a dinner deux please?

Getting a syringe and needle and removing that delicious ganache from the inside of each won't affect the presentation - you don't even need to unwrap em!
