What are we all having for dinner?

You all seem to be such proficient chefs. Well here is a place to share some of that cooking knowledge. Or do you have a cooking problem? Ask away. Jams and chutneys go here too.

Goat curry, barf more like :pukeright: :lol: (and what's this word NOM I keep seeing? :scratch: )

Anyway, each of those three meals is about what I eat for dinner. How can you eat 3 main meals in one day? :shock: :lol:

Well I had a lorne sausage sandwich for breakfast as the porridge was for my lovely OH! Usually have a breakfast then a sandwich and soup for lunch and a big dinner!

Guess working outside at this time of year burns the calories, I was gathering and chopping wood and hanging out the laundry etc. Have managed to eat more and drop a dress size since we moved here in August!

Don't know where you live Zaxdog - definitely not anywhere round here ... hanging out the washing. If I tried putting washing out here it would be frozen solid by the time it got pegged :lol: :lol: :lol:

I live on the Isle of Lismore just off Oban on the West coast of Scotland. It's bitterly cold but my washing is flapping in the breeze!

We are having a vegetable curry tonight made with a base of blended green beans. I was feeling lazy, a few weeks ago, and froze the freshly picked beans without blanching. As I probably knew they would they turned rather tough and chewy, so blending for a curry base was the only option. There's always an alternative use for most things. We always make more rice than needed and have it hot with milk and sugar for breakfast. It also looks like we have too much curry, so it's muligatawny soup (probably spelt wrongly) for lunch. So we are two meals ahead because I did not blanch the beans.

In another thread about the elderly loss of taste, made me think about dishes that I had tried in the past, so tried them again, and thought I would share them with you to try, they are basically stirfry dishes and very simple and quick.


Ingredients,
Glass of Wine
Pork, or Chicken, or Lumpfish.
Oil (I prefer peanut oil)
Garlic
Onion
Root Ginger
Soy Sauce
Natural Yogurt

Chop up the onions, garlic, ginger, and cook in the hot oil until clear, add the meat or fish, cut up into bite size pieces, and cook until sealed, then add a goodly slurp, of Soy sauce.
Cook and towards the end, stir in the Yogurt.
Drink the wine
Serve with Rice, or fresh crusty Bread.
I can't do great things, so I do little things with love.

Oops nearly forgot a bottle of Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon :drunken:
