Re: Tonight's dinner?

A splurge for Easter dinner: Top Loin Beef Roast with a Mustard Paste **
roasted carrots and onions, haricots verts (little green beans), potato rosti, bread, and red wine. Dessert: coffee and chocolate goodies from the Easter Bunny.

** fingers crossed I don't end up with shoe leather for the beef....I'm not use to super expensive cuts of beef. I go for the cheaper stuff that ya throw in a crock-pot and cook for days. I've pulled out the crock-pot and BBQ sauce in case I've blown it..... Hoppy Easter EF friends!

As long as you rested your meat after taking it out of the oven, you should have been just fine, with no shoe leather.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

My favourite quick and easy pasta, from a Masterchef winner in NZ: creamy salmon and spinach fettucine. It's a good cold day for it.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Lamb racks on the grill, celery root mash and little green beans with leftover buerre blanc.

special dessert -.made a flourless chocolate cake (from delia smith) and rolled it around some whipped cream with stawberries.

Certainly didn't suck.

Happy easter and good pesach (though this wasn't kosher)

Tonight's dinner?

I can't tell if they are goats or lambs. Are the ones in the before picture the actual ones cooking in the after picture? They are awfully cute but probably very delicious too. Dilemma.

Baby goats, at the farm where we bough the meat, probably siblings or cousins.

Definitly hard to find Mexican or Pizza in LA, however I do think there are far to many Fondue and Horse burger trucks there.

She says that there's one Italian place that's good, but expensive, and makes the Italian style pizzas that she prefers (rather than US style). Strangely, the pizza place that she prefers here is run and staffed by Serbs (and the other one we like by Turks).

At least she brought be a bunch of chiles (fresh and dried).

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Last night was going to be pan fried pork cutlet with pickled red cabbage and spaetzli.

Instead, thanks to an onset of influenza, a more ordinary recipe was in order: pork and vegetable soup - diced pork, vegetables, water, vegetable stock, and a good portion of sliced ginger in for good measure.

April is a fickle month for weather...
