Re: Tonight's dinner?

Smoked pork roast (5 hours in the smoker), fresh corn tortillas, salsa.

And marinated raw anchovies as a starter.

Chinese.
That's what I had tonight as well. Home-style, rough-and-ready pork stir fry, with matchstick carrots, rough cut pieces of onion, seasoned with soy and oyster sauce.

First time I've cooked an Asian style meal in CH. Also the first time I've cooked rice on the stove top.... need to put less water next time, as I ended up making something closer to porridge (congee).

We don't have a wok in the apartment and the frying pan is very big, flat and a bit too shallow to do any kind of useful tossing, so I had to use a large saucepan instead.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Obviously must be Chinese season because I'm making stir-fry duck for Sunday lunch today.

SoftBedPlease, twice as much water as rice. 1 cup rice, 2 cups water for example (and sorry, but I only work in cup quantities for rice cooking ). For two people half a cup rice to a cup of water.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Caramelised onion and blue cheese (Stilton) tart.

I almost messed up due to my lacking skills in producing shortcrust pastry. Thankfully, my flatmate was there to save the day.

It may look ugly, but it is good. Just like me.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

The picture on the left looks very tasty! The one on the right probably just suffers from poor lighting or poor color balance.

The picture on the right originally had less light, so I used a couple of auto-correct balance applications to try to improve it.

Unfortunately when I took the shot, my camera was on low battery so impossible to use flash (and didn't think of trying other light compensation).

The first shot was directly under the kitchen bench lights, so much better.

Tonight's dinner?

Green mole (pumpkin seeds, chilies, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime) with lightly smoked pork, salad, tortillas. Night before we had thai red curry with chicken. Tomorrow is either pumpkin or onion soup.

Curious about your tortilla soup, texaner!

Re: Tonight's dinner?

American-Style Thanksgiving feast (scaled down for two): turkey, stuffing, sweet potato casserole, bread, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

My ATTEMPT at pumpkin pie. Needs some work but I am hopeful that it is edible. If it is not the best I gather we will just spray the whipped cream on biscuits and call it a day.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Good thread for when I'm out of dinner ideas!

Tonight I'm making vegetable soup with lots of fresh vegetables and little meat balls. And home made white bread to dip in the soup
