They had fresh sardines ( and anchovies for that matter) in our Migros lat week.
I don't know if it was a one off or if they are a regular because I never look for them.
I think they mostly stock them in summer, as a lot of people like to barbecue them.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Roast chicken, root vegetables and red onion and garlic cloves in their skins. Delicious.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Avocado with crab, tuna poke with rice, and hummus with bruschetti.

And now, a short Churchill with a glass of Porto.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Tonight I was trying to cook pan-fried salmon with a yoghurt and tarragon sauce and mashed potatoes and carrots.

Because I was cooking for 10 people I used those mashed potato flakes.

The good part was, the carrots turned out perfectly and I got my quantities exactly right.

The salmon, despite sitting on the counter for most of the day, was still half frozen and stuck to the pan (I didn't realise non-stick pans were available and so used ordinary ones). It also spattered hot oil and started a fire on the hob... thankfully it burnt itself out while I was still trying to remember where the fire blanket was.

The sauce was fine, but the directrice of the group home I'm in was not happy I'd used white wine vinegar... even though I'd specifically asked one of the members of staff if I could use it.

And as for the mashed potato... we have a chart showing quantities per person and it said to allow 250 g each. That seemed a little steep to me. I bought the prix guarantee brand in Coop and it said that 100 g was one portion. So I used a kilogram of the flakes....

You cannot imagine how much mashed potato is now sitting in the kitchen! The other residents took great delight in explaining one 100 g sachet served 3 to 4 people... so I'd made over three times as much as necessary. But careful inspection of the packet revealed that it clearly said 100 g was one portion.

My challenge for tomorrow - find up ways to use left-over mashed potato! (There's got to be enough to feed 30 people left).

Mix them with some flour and spices/garlic/onion until you have a dough, form balls, flatten balls, fry on both sides. Dinner is served
