What are you cooking tonight?
Or maybe you're eating out?
Tell us about it!
Me? I'm baking a whole fish (marinated schnapper), topped with chopped tomatoes, mushrooms & parsley .... Maybe a baked potato & a salad as well ... Sounds good to me!
BTW .... it's mid Sunday afternoon here in Oz ..... Probably a wee bit early to be thinking of dinner yet for you folk just going to bed after Saturday night!
Hmm, I'm not sure about dinner this monday evening... Since it's my only day off, I'm mostly prone to go out and eat, but tonight I'm not sure, maybe we'll find some fish at the super-market, that would be nice!
What did you have for sunday dinner, msolga?
I am potting a flank steak, with onions, mushrooms, string beans, carrots, and red potatoes. Not fancy, but satisfying, and plenty of leftovers!
Yes, sounds good to me! So I will pack my stuff and leave for home!
Sunday night dinner? That was my baked fish night .... Not as good as I'd hoped. Oh well ...
Tonight's dinner was my 2nd (little) steak in 15 years! (Someone suggested it as I've been feeling a wee bit tired & rundown lately) ... Dunno, it still feels strange after all those vegetarian years.
My mother-in-law's goat curry and home-made roti, the best!
we had some really nice fish that I grilled, and a salad with that... And my saladsauce was just plain awesome!!!
2tbsp medium hot mustard
3tbsp spanish sherry vinegar
1teasp balsamic vinegar
whip it all together, taste it, add some salt, probably...
3 drops of truffleoil, very careful here
add up with virgin olive oil
all this on a green salad, nothing fancy, but the salad turned very ritzy thru the sauce, ask urs!
It was wonderful! The fish was very good, too.
I haven't done this weeks grocery shopping yet. I ordered pizza last night, but can't afford to eat out again tonight. I dunno what I'll have.......
bigdice & urs
Oh, you eat so well! I'm envious ... such creativity & expertise!!! I will try your salad dressing (though maybe omit the truffle oil - unless I'm feeling very wealthy & extravagant & manage to buy some.
Wow, I'm impressed!
p.s. .... Makes me wonder what your cats had for dinner .... lobster?
I haven't ordered a (delivered to home) pizza for yonks ..... A good way to chill out after a frantic day, yes?
Just in protest over the mad cow disease scare in Canada, I made a wonderful steak dinner last night. Bought Meyer Angus striploins, organically farmed here in Ontario, no hormones, no additives, natural diet. I just grilled them with a bit of coarse French sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Man, they were really really tasty...just had some corn on the cob and a small salad on the side. I am lucky to be a chef, I have been able to get a few free samples of truffle oil from a few different companies, heh heh, haven't paid for it in a while.
I stick by organic farming, and besides, there are no cases in Ontario anyway.
... and as we all know, the cavfancier doesn't scare easily. canajuns is tough! :wink:
i was wandering around Spadina after work tonight. Cheese Magic in Kensington Market was closed by the time we got there, so i wandered down to Kim Hoa and ordered a 3 combination meat on rice to go. had about 1/4 of it with salad once i got home. I love Kim Hoa, especially their soya chicken with green onion, ginger and garlic sauce.
