I will check with my wife. I gave her clear instructions; a slice of Swiss cheese melted in the middle of each fried eggs. Maybe she chopped the margarine plastic box instead. Let me ask again ...

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Steamed chard and smoked trout. Grown up food. Yay!

I saw an excellent recipe for chard gratin (with a litle bit of beshamel and lots of gruyere), I must try that too.

Chard is such a happy food.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Did your wife cook them for you?

Côtes de bettes au gratin is lovely- one of my favourite when a child, and still is.

Chard (or Swiss chard, as we tend to misleadingly call it in the anglophone countries) is great and versatile. The slight bitterness of chard offsets many rich foods quite nicely.

It is difficult to handle (because it's a relatively large vegetable).

I made it in my rice cooker, it has a steamer attachment for veg. It's lovely and not really bitter, I steamed it with a bit of salt and garlic. It's tastier than spinach. Hmmmmm

Re: Tonight's dinner?

The snow season justifies my soup obsession a little bit more, another soup tonight, it's so fast.

Cream of spinach - fry a handful of bacon bits on olive oil, then add chopped green onion, a little bit of garlic, a potato or two, peeled and cubed (tiny). 5min later add a brick of frozen mushed spinach in cream, a couple of kiri-kiris, 100ml of cream, veg bouillion, half litre of hot water, bring to boil then simmer. Season with salt, fresh pepper, little bit of nutmeg or marjoram. You can blend it, but I like it just like that. If really hungry, pour raw egg in, stir with a fork fast, don't boil anymore. It's great with home made croutons (baked bread pieces, rubbed with olive oil, course sea salt and fresh thyme).

Tonight's dinner - fish & chips with mozzarella salad. Glass of dry red Two Oceans goes without saying

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Kiri-kiri



Will turn any cooked vegetable into a really good soup. You don't really need it though, just cream is good too.

As long as it doesn't have anything to do with harakiri

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Cabbage rolls.

Prepared them over lunch, and put them in the slow cooker so that they will be ready for dinner!

Re: Tonight's dinner?

I am just finishing the leftovers of my kale*, swede* & pea soup. This evening I shall do something with the brussel sprout* florets I picked an hour ago. Lots of greens here on the menu.
(*all growing still nicely in the garden).
