Re: Tonight's dinner?

This week it's my turn to cook a 'speciality' dish in my group home. So I'm making beef stew with dumplings.

I'm hoping it will encourage my appetite as I haven't eaten very much all week...

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Went to a colleague's place last night for dinner. Never had home cooked Indian food before.

It was absolutely fantastic. Biriyani, paneer masala curry, aloo masala, raita, dosa, chipatti and papadums. Went back for seconds before was so full but made room for the gulab jamon.

Really, really good.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Homemade chicken & bacon fajitas with homemade pico de gallo (using home grown jalapeños!).

Edit: ...plus guacamole.

Made something similar the other night, chicken salad, bacon and cheddar tacos, with homemade salsas (tomato/onion/avocado plus tomato/onion/habanero) and tortillas (still got about 10kg of masa in the cellar).

Hainanese Chicken Rice
Hats off for this!

This is one of my favourite dishes that my mother cooks. The only thing is that she hasn't quite got the whole technique of making the white cut chicken down pat (she typically braises the chicken - usually pieces, not a whole chicken - in soy sauce).

I probably have to try to do this here.

Lovely dish isn't it! I also sometimes make it with thighs and drumsticks only. Only 2 of us in my household, a whole chicken would be too much, plus we prefer dark meat.

Also, I take it a little further. I first make an intense 3 hour chicken stock (without veggies, only bones) and then simmer the chicken in this stock. The flavour is superb.

I've also made this with a suppenhuhn and it was AMAZING!

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Leftovers

(That actually covers most weekday evenings - I over-cook at the weekend to keep us well fed through the week. Last weekend: Mushroom soup, Sausage and bacon casserole, slow-cooked BBQ style brisket)

Where do you get brisket?

Anyway, tonight it's 'orecchiette con le cime di rapa'.

Tom
I've always used the following recipe and it works very well for me:

http://www.insanitytheory.net/kitche...kimchi-recipe/

The only changes I make:
- I omit the white sugar altogether and
- I add 2 tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds to the 'sauce' at the end of step 7.
