Re: Tonight's dinner?

Mushroom agnolotti with brussel sprouts cooked in butter. Served with buffalo mozzarella.


No, I didn't make the agnolotti. Note to self: when in UK, look for pasta machine. Then, learn to make pasta. (Will it be cheaper than buying it in the packet? Probably not, but hey, it tastes better, right?)

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Denner beefburgers (CHF2.75 for two, but 25% off). The burgers were lightly charred over the embers of a fire we lit on Dentenberg, overlooking the beautiful, twinkling lights of the upper Aare valley. The main course was accompanied by a bottle of ALDI Côte-du-Rhône (CHF3.49). The burgers were chewy and fatty, and the wine was cold, but the location and the company were fabulous. Highly recommended.

Certainly! The more the merrier. Although fine dwelling is perhaps a bit generous. Small clearing on the edge of the forest would be more accurate.

What happened to all the photos on this thread? I came here looking for food porn and all I got was a copy of 50 Shades of Grey.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Pan roasted honeyed carrots, served with plain yoghurt and toasted, crushed mixed nuts; with a pan fried chicken breast seasoned with sea salt, pepper, cinnamon and spicy paprika.

As with about 98% of my cooking, it tasted a lot better than it looks.

Okay must admit this was made a few weeks ago. Breakfast for dinner...My attempt at a full English for the better half. Figure it is just missing the blood pudding...

Re: Tonight's dinner?

An Aldi tuna pizza straight from the pack into the oven. Okay, not something to brag about you may say. But I've got a shiny new oven/hob to play with. My old oven decided it didn't want to do anything but grill a couple of months ago so we haven't had a pizza since mid-August. Can't wait. Yummy.

I recently bought this from Venice:

It's for making spaghetti and I find it quite ingenious! The only problem is that I bought it as a gift and now I'm trying to forget how much I'd like to use it.
It's quite limiting in what kind of pasta you can make (I can only think of spaghetti and tiny spaghetti squares if you roll it both ways!) but I'm sure it will be quite cheaper that a pasta machine.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Had dinner out the other night at Asia Express near Gare de Lausanne. Ordered Mapo tofu and a bowl of fried rice.

Bland. Maybe I just ordered the wrong food, but overall didn't make passing grade.

I have the feeling that it's not only cheaper but also more practical. We have the "machine" and I think it has been used only 2-3 times so far by my OH who is a very patient and systematic guy when cooking. I am still teasing him for buying it.

Sorry to disappoint, but the polenta was just a Zwicky Mais product the wife had on hand, and the 'shrooms were locally grown browns from Coop that weren't used in a previous dish. The polenta e funghi was meant to combine and avoid wasting some on-hand resources. It wasn't bad.
