Low carbers, what are you making toniggt or tomorrow

Just curious what you guys are making for nice meals in the next couple of days. I need a dose of inspiration just now.

  1. Seared tuna and scallops

    1. I'm making some green beans with garlic black bean sauce (sauce has ground pork). Also saw a recipe for slow-roasted salmon with peanut sauce which I might try during the week. Tonight I made japanese fried chicken and miso glazed aubergine. Used 1tbsp of cornstarch to coat the chicken, which I suppose is an improvement on the big bowl of rice I would have eaten otherwise.

        Could you link to the recipe for salmon w/ peanut sauce? All of this sounds yummy.

        We had simple ham steak and spinach w/ mushrooms. Mr. Sueatmo had leftover cooked fingerling potatoes with butter. I forgot to add a carb replacement to my plate so I had a luscious ripe pear for dessert.

          1. re: gembellina

            I'm going to have a long look at both these recipes. I'd like a good method to prepare sugar snaps especially.

      2. Tonight is not "nice", but hearty--'shepherd's pie' made from a mix of ground beef and a bit of ground lamb, with red peppers and onions (rather than the traditional peas n corn), and on top a bit of mozzarella. Green salad on the side with cukes, tomato, olives and shaved parm.
        Couple glasses red wine.

          I'd like a portion of what you're having, please! Sounds delish.

          1. re: sueatmo

            S, so would I!

            Was watching "American Pickers" or somesuch, and set my plate down on a coffee table to go get a couple of napkins. Ben (dog, normally Very Well Behaved) snarfled 3/4 of the plate in under a minute. Good thing he's cute.

            I doubled down on salad and ate was was supposed to be today's lunch last night.

            1. re: pinehurst

              Yes, there's always salad. I'm roasting 2 Cornish game hens and trying to carmelize sliced onions. I intend to steam some cauliflower and garnish all with the onions. And of course we'll have salad.

          2. Braised beef short ribs are on the menu for tonight, hubby, aka Mr. MUSTHAVECARBS, will have mashed potatoes with it, the rest of us will have veggies.

              I saw this:

              I like the sound of the gorgonzola pudding as a replacement for the blue cheese polenta that I might otherwise make to go with. Looks like a very rich meal though!

              1. re: gembellina

                Gorgonzola pudding sounds great to go with that dry rubbed ribeye tomorrow! Too rich for braised short ribs, if you ask me! Copied and filed away.

            2. Italian style meatloaf with sauted spinach, jerk chicken with red beans, asian pork loin with slaw.
