Re: Tonight's dinner?

I made a simple and fab salad - fresh crisp lettuce, roasted walnuts, little cubes of gruyer, fresh basil, freshly ground pepper, roasted sesame seed oil, balsamic vinegar and a little bit of olive oil.

Walnuts (or most nuts), cheese, leaves and a good oil dressing - a classic combination.

Rocket leaves work nicely as well, especially when added with pear.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

tonight's dinner ? Not sure now, but I will eventually finish my meal with a chocolate pot and fruits made of marzipan.

I love this part of the year in Geneva

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Is there a certain way the Marmite de l'Escalade is to be cracked/broken/tipped or am I free to let Lil Dude crack it any way he likes ? I'm trying to sell him on the idea of veggie soup for dinner but so far he is giving it a pass.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

The Tradition wants that the youngest children brokes the marmite, saying "ainsi périssent les ennemis de la République!"
In school, it was usually the youngest and the oldest kids.

(so perish the enemies of the Republic!)

Even better if you can put some musics from Star Wars.

Snap, us too. Ready made from Aldi though this time. What meat are you planning to use? We make ours with ostrich when I make them from scratch.

Ground beef.
Just got done stuffing my face and have tons left over - can fajitas be stored in the fridge (ingredients separated) and be reheated tomorrow or is that a bad idea (use-by date of the meat is the 14th)?

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Don't see why not. If it's eaten the next day it should be fine.

Tonight - tagine with chicken, preserved lemons and olives.
But tomorrow - in honor of Chanukah - latkes and smoked salmon

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Inspired by a similar dish by another EF forum member, tonight's dinner was a white pasta bake. Penne pasta par cooked. Cauliflower chopped and blanched. Sliced onion cooked until falling down, then give the cauliflower a bit of a toss.

Pile all into a bowl with crumbled cream cheese. Pour in some cream, top with more cheese, then cook in oven until gratinated.

I would have liked more colour on top, but after a long time in the oven it just didn't want to gratinate further. Delicious and contains no meat (not that I am vegetarian, quite opposite), though the nutritionists will say I'm going to hell for the cheese and the cream.


This dish reminds me that I should try making "macaroni cheese" again some time (the version I learned / adapted uses penne rather than macaroni, and 3 kinds of cheese).
