What is/was on the menu tonight.
« on: January 14, 2011, 03:17:27 PM »
Title says it all.  No need to go into any great detail about what you are going to eat or what you did, but if something really sounds good, you may be asked to post the recipe in the other thread :).

Tonight we had a side of Salmon with lemon and herb crust, chips or fries to some (it is fish 'n' chip night after all), salad and some wholemeal bread.

Passed on the wine tonight due to too much fizzy stuff last night, and opted for a Caffreys instead to wash it down.

Quite delicious actually.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

Chicken breast milanesas, quiche (made with I had handy: corn, onions, cheese and olives + eggs) and tomato & lettuce salad. I'll end up eating all the lettuce myself since the other members of the family always fish out only the tomatoes.

To drink... I don't know. Probably red wine or maybe just sparkling water tonight.

The family had these 100% beef pattie jobbies in a wholemeal bun with salad this evening, and I had similar but with fish.

For dessert I was given 3 pieces of this amazing Italian chocolate torte, that was so rich that the missus couldn't eat all of hers (I had to stop twice myself).  What's left of hers is, as I speak, on the coffee table staring at me and I swear I can hear it whispering my name.  I am about to burst though so I should get it out of my head.

Last night was provided by a few new friends of mine. Two male friends if that tells you anything.  :D  Wings, chz/sausage crackers, nacho chips with queso dip. But I had no problem consuming any of it!! Blazing wings, I mean hot enough to change the color of your "morning donation" AAHHH!!! LOL  ;D And lots and lots of alcohol before going to see Black Swan for a second time. Yes the guys are straight but I still think I was their beard for going to this movie.

Sunday nights are one of the nights I work late, so I have to fix soemthing that requires zero prep time, and cooks fast.. like salmon... likely also rice.. and, I've been thinking all day about cheddar broccoli soup.. and/or spinach salad. At home to drink right now there's juice, tea, milk, Corona, Perrier.. or Perrier +  Macallan. I rarely eat dessert.

Really boring today (it being Sunday and all) with simple roast chicken thingmabobs for everyone and nut cutlets for me, and steamed carrots, broccoli and yorkshires to accompany.

Dessert was toffee mouse with bananas and a tin of fruit cocktail added, topped with grated chocolate.

Add cauliflower and remove the nut cutlets and that was my dinner (lunch to just about everyone else here)

Not the dessert part though, that was Tiramisu.

Do you buy them or do you make them yourself? They look very good. I'd like to try them but they don't exist here.
I make my own soy patties bc ready made ones tend to be too dry and thin.

I haven't seen them either. I'll look at some place like Whole Foods. They sell ones here that are soy and black bean that I really like. The black beans make them moist, and they're very spicy.

What a good idea Skadi! I'll try adding black beans. It might add moistness and sweetness too. Sometimes I add bulgur or lentils to soy patties.
