What are you having for dinner today?

Recommended Posts

There are 8 of us going to an Indian restaurant tonight. It is not Licensed so we have to take our own. If they try and charge corkage I will threaten to stick my bottle where the sun don't shine. 

 

I'm not one to curry favour

Today is steak & chips with some of the remains of the beef.

Today was what used to be referred to as "Cold Collation", ie slices of turkey and ham from previous meals served with chips and salad. 

Ditto unfortunately - unless I decide to do something else for myself.

Sweet & Sour King Prawns yesterday.

 

Today is fish but we haven't obtained it yet.

 

No decent fish available. There is a piece of celeriac in the fridge so I'll do celeriac soup with bacon bits.

I trust you removed the digestive tract veins in the prawns before cooking them.

 

I never buy the pink pre cooked prawns because they are rarely de-veined and never eat shrimp or prawns in a restaurant for the same reason..

 

Prawns being bottom feeder eat the undesirable stuff off the river or sea bed which is what the black vein in the prawn is full of. Yuk Yuk and triple Yuk.

Yes, Alan, I'm always very careful about removing 'undesirable' bits from shellfish and, like you, do not buy them pre-cooked or have them in a restaurant.

When I was more active and able, I used to go down to Chichester or Brighton and buy live shrimps and prawns (sometimes even lobsters) and cook them myself. They always tasted much better than the pre-done ones.

 

Today is meatballs in a mushroom sauce with couscous.

We have given up on casseroles and saucepan stews. We used to have a slow cooker but it got wrecked during a house move 7 years ago.

I decided to replace it with a modern one 6 months ago. It is far better than the previous one and so much easier to clean with the non-stick lining.

Aubergine sliced about 1cm thick dipped in egg and semolina and shallow fried. Served with bacon, mushrooms and canned tomatoes. Possibly some bread on the side.

Cooked this way, aubergine goes soft and squidgy with a crisp outside.

Yesterday was a beef curry. I cheated by using a bottled (Sharwoods) Madras sauce.

 

Today is (completely) homemade leek & potato soup with the addition of Silesian (Polish) sausage (that part not homemade). Served with bread (made in the breadmaker).
