Last night, spicy vegetarian chilli with rice; dessert - experiment with cherries, ricotta, cream cheese wrapped in many layers of filo, baked crispy, dusted in cocoa, cinnamon and icing sugar - warm out of the oven
Woke up starving! Starving again when I got home...
Fresh basil/tomato/mozzarella with balsamic. Spicy veal/pork meatballs in a veg/sugo with spaghetti; leftovers of last night's dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some cherry syrup.
Pork loin cooked with apple, cabbage, chilli, etc Carrots Tomatoes, cuke bit of pinot noir to segue into the carbs in dessert: bread and butter pudding, warm with cinnamon and some canned peaches. Good way to use up 1-2 day old bread!
the other week: jerk chicken, corn, sweet potato/potato mash, three colour coleslaw with seeds and currants, steamed green beans
The cold of approaching winter has me thinking of food for hibernation! Been looking at food p0rn for the last couple of days on the Gourmet Traveller site... now craving borscht and homemade bread rolls
lime and árbol marinade corn tortillas (there was a good reason for carrying them home in my overstuffed pack the other night!) coriander, lettuce, avocado, sour cream, habenero sauce, roasted jalapenos, tomato, cheese
Managed to accidentally flip the avocado stone into my glass of beer.... interesting combination!
After reading this, I couldn't help being surprised at how some people use being "time-poor" as their excuse for eating out at restaurants. I can cook a well-rounded meat & veges* meal in 30-40 minutes**, and the time spent going to a restaurant, waiting to be served, eating the meal, then returning home would far exceed that.
* Or just vegetarian/piscatorian if that's what I'm in the mood for. ** With the added peace of mind of knowing exactly what my ingredients are, and how fresh they are.
