What's for dinner?

Recommended Posts

  Tonight I served-up some blast from the past called Campfire Stew over mashed potatos. I came across this old recipe from my days as a Girl Scout and thought about whipping some up for tonight's dinner.

  Enough about me, what was on the menu at your place?

Last night - home made lasagne. Had that while following the Torino gig!

 

Tonight - have pork ribs marinating since last night. Will have those, glaze them with home made BBQ sauce, some spicy wedges and fresh salad. And Victoria sponge cake. Delish!

[quote name=xtraspicy62]mussaka sounds interesting...what is it, and is it fairly easy to make?

its like a greek 'lasagna' spicy. with lots of variatons in preparation. i prepare mine with half-cooked and sliced potatoes, slices of aubergine (eggplant) baked in the oven , tomato-sauce and cheese-sauce. and then you just fill an oven-dish with layers : tomatosauce at the bottom, then sliced potatoes on top, cheese-sauce, slices eggplant, and so on.... and on top of it all a mix of gratin and mozarella-cheese (altho i do use what ever cheese i have, but always a mix, cause i prefer that)

it takes some time to prepare it, but is well worth it cause everybody loves it, (tho its only fair to say that silas always puts the eggplant on my plate...)

buy real fresh veggies takes time but the flavor is incomparable to canned or even frozen...

besides, i think im getting more fiber by buying fresh...

 

yeah, it can be a pain, but it goes easier to peel and slice when sitting at a nice large table or cournter top, with bono singing in the background...

 

summer breeze coming thru the window helps too...

 

now what compromises the cheese sauce?

 

for dinner---right now, Im popping very large cherry tomaotes fresh from the famers market into my mouth instead of chewing on chips!

 

im trying not to eat anything other than fresh fruit or veggies at night...starting around 6-6:30 PM...

 

this is a new goal for me....

 

its kinda tough, and will take time I think to stick...

 

eating all night has been a very bad habit or many years...

my oldest son prepared dinner tonite, since i was working late-shift and my love was still a bit zomby-ish after working nite-shifts...

he made some wraps with a 'chicken-paprika-sweetcorn in yoghurt-sauce'-filling. tasted real good!

 

and now i'm enjoying an after-dinner margaritha, cheers! salut!

Chicken soup.

 

Seriously.

 

I hate cooking when I come home from work (I do long days)...so I looked in the cupboards...and the packet of chicken soup...it is simmering now.

Last night I had...grilled teriyaki salmon, fresh steamed corn, pasta alfredo with artichoke hearts and olives, a bowl of fresh fruit (peaches, plums, raspberries) and a glass of yummy red wine!

sounds healthy and yummy---what was the alfredo sauce made from? was it heavy creme?
