Hard to believe that this discussion has reache 300! That represents a lot of meals, and many interesting discussions. Thanks to everyone who keeps the discussion so interesting, inspiring, and hunger- inducing!
What's for dinner in your house?
Pretty warm weather here, so grilled cheeseburgers it was for dinner. My propane ran out about 1/4 way through cooking, but SO came to the rescue, we still have the tanks for our camper here at the house since we haven't taken the camper out of storage yet. Side was sunchips. Real difficult dinner.
Kale chips followed by a plate of liver and onions was my solo dinner last night. A rare treat as nobody seems to like liver except me. No flavourings except S&P and a good splash of red wine vinegar.
Tonight we're having soup. It's a river cafe recipe we make often - borlotti bean and cavolo nero. I'm feeling particularly smug about it tonight. The cavolo nero and the celery are from my little garden, it's such a thrill to step out of my front door and pick dinner ingredients.
My dinner was ok. Experimented with a parchment wrapped baked sea bass. Zucchini, sweet onion, green beans and thinly sliced lemon with the bass on top. Since the Gentleman's Relish is basically a compound butter I spread some over the fish and topped with more thinly sliced lemon.
I was conservative with the G.R. since it is so flavorful. Didn't really shine in this application - could be I just didn't use enough. Plus the bass had so many little scales (I washed it and couldn't feel or see them). Let's just say I was quite glad to be dining solo...
Fortunately there was cake!
Yesterday (Sunday), we worked in the garden for a couple hours and was going to get takeout but neither of us felt like going to pick it up. So it was leftovers. Dinner tonight for the DF was pan seared ham steak with a brown sugar glaze, parmesan egg noodles and peas (which seem to be his favorite veg these days).
