What's For Dinner This Evening?

Tue Feb 12, 2013 7:25 pm

Seems a while since we had a good talk about food.

So, what are you having today?

I just polished off a hefty helping of corned beef hash, made in my own inimitable style. Additions: slivers of red pepper, a good shake of paprika, fried egg. It was delicious, simple and warming.

This was the 'reward' for eating zero fat and sugar during the entire day.

Bon appetit!

Pancakes, of course! Ham and cheese to start, sugar and lemon to finish.

Looks like it is going to be Chinese for me! I can't wait until I can sneak out of school for spring break and get some good home cooked meals! Dining hall food gets old quick!

I didn't have any time to make something from scratch this evening so bought a salmon & broccoli quiche from Marks & Spencer after work, it got a little squashed on the train home but still tasted great!

I bought cheese and bread.

I began to eat cheese and bread.

And then I thought that a cheese fondue would be much better...

...so I changed plans in the middle of dinner.

Well for me it was making my pancakes which is a tradition I always do. I did not have dinner to compensate for the calories  http://i955.photobucket.com/albums/ae40/PhilipOA260/pancakes_zps5eff7adb.jpg

Well, I am home alone tonight, so probably a microwave TV dinner. Fine dining, I know.

Red Wine Risotto and Salmon started off with a Greek salad.

Portobello with roasted peppers, goat cheese on top of arugula. Washed down with Champagne. Eating done. Still working on the Champagne.

We had a late lunch, so a toasted fried egg and bacon, cheese sandwich on low carb bread. Washed down by carbonated water.

Have you tried horse? It's very popular in certain European countries at the moment (problem is, it's a bit of a surprise and most folks don't know they are eating it)! Just a thought? :-P

I have, it´s excellent. As a matter of fact, I´ll eat a horse filet anyday over a cow filet. It´s leaner and more flavorful. As to the original question:

Mixed green salad
Fried chicken sandwich
Cream of brocoli soup.

NY strip steak, cooked perfectly. Juicy, tender, and flavorful. The secret? Cooking it in a vacuum-sealed bag in a heated, precisely controlled water bath.

Mmm.

Had some fresh, lightly cooked veggies on the side.

Tonight, reheated pot roast and homemade gravy (no lumps!) leftover from the weekend, served over white rice with buttered petite peas on the side.

I also put a little cranberry sauce on the plate, which goes surprisingly well with pot roast. I picked that up from a Mark Bittman recipe in the NY Times some years ago, where he tossed an orange and a bag of cranberries into the braising liquid.

Tonight I'm making chicken and mushroom pie, mashed potatoes, carrots and broccoli. You can't buy a pie in Norway so I have to make them myself.

We had pan seared rainbow trout fillets over a braised pea and lettuce salad with lardons, was delicious.

That's probably a good thing. Cannot beat a home made, non-processed pie. We make "roast dinner pie" with all the leftovers of a roast dinner, that's great.

If you do the sous vide thing right, you cook it and then quickly sear it off to caramelise.

New Zealand bakery pies are things of beauty, far better than anything I've had from a UK pie shop. I also like turning Sunday roast into cottage or shepherds pie on Monday.

Yes when I was in NZ a few years ago, I was blown away by the love of the pie out there. I particularly enjoyed the mince pie, reminiscent very much so of some of Scotland's finest offerings.

Obviously but I was not going to eat both and as its a once a year thing I think it will pass as dinner.

Don't worry, it was seared. I usually alternate between a cast iron skillet in the oven at 550* F, then placed on the grill on high, with a quick sear on all sides (including the small sides where the fat is) - or - I use a butane torch which leaves no noticeable aftertaste (propane does; butane is used for creme brûlée) and burns at 1,500* F.

Both are pretty effective, and quick enough to sear the outside but not raise internal temp
