What Did You Cook Today? Part 1

Since photos are now easier to load on Chowhound (just browse your picture file, and upload),
I thought we could establish a photo forum of daily meals or entrees.

To start, I have my Canadian Thanksgiving maple smoked turkey, with dressing and zucchini.

Please feel free to add daily cooking photos, or verbal descriptions.

  1. For dinner tonight - baked salmon with buttery leeks on top, yellow bell peppers with smoked cayenne pepper and sushi rice.

    1. Hi, jayt. I'll bet that turkey was tasty.

      I didn't do much cooking today, but yesterday, I made angel hair with a fresh tomato and beef ragu with a romaine and sauteed mushroom salad dressed with balsamic vinaigrette. I also posted this on the What's For Dinner thread, which is another ongoing homecooking thread that focuses on dinner. (You might have already seen it.)

      Oh, I did also make a ham and cheese croissant with a light smear of strawberry jam for breakfast today.

      I like the idea of this thread because we can post whatever we make regardless of time of day, so thanks for starting it. :)

      1. re: inaplasticcup

        @jay, Saw your post on WFD. I think it's great that we have both options now. Count me in going forward. :)

      2. No cooking, just preparing. Lunch was pears, and bananas, and dinner was a big bowl of guacamole, and chips. Too tired from the commute to cook. The Florida avocados weigh around 2#, and make about a quart of guacamole. Shoulda only used one jalapeño though. This last bunch I bought really have some heat in them.

        Trying to think when the last time I actually cooked a full meal. The current work schedule has me pretty worn out by the time I get home.

        1. No images, but dinner tonight was country fried chicken, white asparagus, cherry tomatoes and brown rice. Not only was it colorful, it was very good.

            Last night. Cooked up what was left in my garden. Sauteed beet greens, swiss chard, roasted brussel sprouts w garlic and shallot. Topped w a good french feta and a splash of rice vinegar. Delightful.

              That sounds lovely, todao. How did you prepare the asparagus?
