Something called Nutty Chicken (I'm not cooking - our boarder/flatmate's daughter is visiting and so she's cooking one of the favourite dinners).
I also just put some quinces on the stove to stew, so I think I'll be having those for dessert (boarder also made chocolate brownie, but I don't eat sugar).

We are winning at dinner this week. Tonight was chicken roasted with pesto and garlic under the skin, roasted beet salad with lemon zest, pecans and gorgonzola, and a kale and chard green soup.

Nothing...big fat nothing.
Last night I grilled some salmon to bring to work tonight. Dusted with some maple seasoning. Smelled great. Going to have with a big salad. Then I got up this morning to find I left the salmon out on the counter alllll night. Apparently I like throwing money away :cry: :twisted: .

Ended up eating at work. A naked (no bun) sauted onion/mushroom burger with steamed beans. Not bad but not what I had planned.

Dang. Ruined salmon makes me sad.

Tonight: big salad, Rosemary roasted leg of lamb with a balsamic/red wine reduction and smashed Gorgonzola Yukon Gold taters and a nice Crispin hard cider.

Tonight I whipped something up after squeezing in a ride after work... Decided I wanted rice. Put that on to cook with a little salt, a shake of chili flakes and 50/50 stock and water.
While rice was cooking, I stripped the meat off the two chicken frames I'd put in the pressure cooker to make into stock before my ride, chopped up half a leftover zucchini, a few tomatoes, a handful of basil (all grown here) and half a chili (grown by my friend).
When the rice was done (can't say I timed it... just took off the lid and it looked perfect!), I threw the veges in with the rice, stirred it, eyeballed it, tasted it, added a bit more water then let it steam for a couple of minutes. A little salt & pepper to serve (would be equally nice with a bit of parmesan or similar), utterly DELICIOUS!
Only 15 mins start to finish, and I get to have the leftovers for lunch :D

Rockabilly's Lemon Butter Chicken from previous page with asparagus/lemon, a bit of fettuccine/parm, and chardonnay. It was splendid! Highly recommended.

It's cold out and I work in a ginormous portacom (which acts like a large ice box on frosty/cold days). I have a hankering for the sweetcorn chowder, which I think is also one of Rockabilly's recipes, and even made chicken stock two nights ago in preparation. Alas, tonight I am dinnering with a friend, so she'll cook something for us. Chowder tomorrow!

Tonight: chili and lime pizza (nom nom nom) because I forgot to take my lunch to work and had to buy it, so lunch becomes dinner :lol: Plus, I am the only one home tonight as mum and our boarder are going out to a concert (or maybe a movie?).

I DID start a pot of corn chowder, with a few twists... Half a green chili (seeds and all) - chopped, basil instead of sage, and two small sweet potatoes, chopped into chunks, have gone into the mix. I may add some diced chicken to cook through before we eat it (tomorrow).

Corn chowder with twists was delicious. Quite a nice spicy kick from the chili and very filling even though I didn't add the chicken in the end.

I therefore needed to cook the chicken so made a sort of cross of green thai curry with some red chilli and extra spices, chicken and sweet potato chunks. I've also put on a large pot of pork, paprika/chili/tomato stew for tomorrow. Only rice/potatoes to cook and some vegetables on the side, and dinners and lunches for at least 3 days will be complete.

Thank You!! I would love to invite you to dinner because I'm always trying to think of something delicious to make. Tonight we are having steak fajitas.
I've been marinating the steak all day and for our breakfast in the morning I have cinnamon rolls rising this very minute. I made them a little different this time using a brioche dough for the rolls. I hope they turn out good!

Friday night was a cooked-from-scratch red Thai curry (with chicken). Amazing. Cooked with way more care and attention than I'd give it ;) and had a lovely kick from the sambal olek chili.
Then, I missed out on 5-hour slow roasted lamb shoulder on Saturday. As it only went into the oven around 5 or 6pm, at about 9pm we bailed across the road to a Mexican place (which was lovely, by the way!).
Sunday was steak (home-kill beef, lovely thick slices of really tender meat which are fab to cook) with butternut pumpkin, potatoes and vegetables, followed up with a feijoa and pecan cake.

Lunch today was steak leftovers ;)

Venison something amazing last night - went out for dinner with a few people from work. Followed by a chocolate brownie ice cream sandwich with chocolate mousse on the side (I am a total sucker for mousse).

Tonight: a tomato sauce with chunks of zuc, sliced onion and smashed garlic, with chunks of chicken breast. Probably served with potatoes.

I took out some ground beef last night.

Going to fry it in grape seed oil with garlic and oregano. I will put on a pot of macaroni and when both are done, I will drain the mac and chuck it into the ground beef and mix it all up and let sit on low for a minute or two.

I don't eat dairy, but after I grab what I want from the pan, I throw shredded cheese on top and put the lid on, and let it melt and then serve it to the rest of the famjam.

I generally add salsa in mine though. The cold salsa on the hot food seems to go well. Now I am hungry.

But I just read about some salmon... now I need to get some salmon....

Steak, steak, steak, from 'El Sizzling Chorizo' :mrgreen:

BBQ tomorrow (I am fairly sure I'm 'crashing' my bf's friend's bbq, rather than going home for dinner - I believe he's asked to bring me but I suggested we just turn up as they're unlikely to refuse to have me stay :lol: )

We're doing chicken fajitas tonight.

Yesterday, on the drive home from Reno we stopped at The Tortilla Factory in Winnemucca, NV and picked up three kinds of salsa and a stack of freshly made cactus-corn tortillas (don't know what makes them cactus, but they have a green tinge). Lately I've had an obsession with making black pot beans enriched with chiles and lard. The chicken is kind of beside the point.

I've put a whole chicken in the pot to slow cook with onion, ginger, garlic, Chinese five spice, a cinnamon stick, some soy and oyster sauce, and half a chili (chopped finely). That's tomorrow's meal and I'm very keen to see how it turns out! Will serve with rice.

Tonight is a bit more simple, steak with potatoes, sweet potatoes and steamed mixed vege.

It's just spice combos... No fancy prep or skills required to make it all happen. I browned the onions over a medium heat, added garlic/ginger for a bit, removed, turned up the heat and threw the chicken in to brown, sprinkled "enough" five spice powder on, turned the chicken, decided more five spice was in order, put the onion mix in, a bit of hot water, a splosh each of oyster and soy sauce, then lid on and left it to cook itself on low for a looooong time 8-)

This weekend I have to cook a goat curry for our curry competition... I still don't know what kind of curry I'm making!

Tonight it will be stir fried shrimp with snow peas and red bell pepper in hot and sour sauce.

A few nights ago we had rice bowls with black beans and crisp vegetables on top, but what was outstanding about this dish was the cilantro lime cream sauce I made for it. Delicious!

I made salmon with gremolata breadcrumbs on top, asparagus roasted with some garlicky olive oil and a really nice slightly lemony pasta. Served with a nice glass of wine = yum.

Roast veges (potatoes, 2 types of sweet potatoes, carrots, beets), and roast chicken (I bought a whole chicken and chopped it into smaller pieces as it was far better value for money) that I put on top of a mix of feijoas ('pineapple guavas'), diced onion, half a chili and some cloves of garlic (diced) and a bit of salt & pepper. Oh, plus a salad of red cabbage and grated carrot which I think needed 'something' (maybe sliced red onion).

I have two large chicken breasts left for cooking tomorrow, plus plenty of leftovers.

lamb chops, ratatouille, creamed potatoes.

The lamb chops were disappointing.

Tomorrow, I have a duck. Roasted, probably. I was pondering firing up the smoker, but it's going to rain, so it might be better to just sling it in the oven for a couple of hours.

Tonight, mystery, our 'flatmates' are cooking. It'll be good!

My hopes of pesto were thwarted by less than edible basil, which I discovered after starting the pasta. The make shift replacement is sautéed kale tossed with leftover peanut sauce over pasta, all topped with a poached egg. So far, so good.

Oh, this sounds so good! And "spatchcocked" is just fun to say. :D

Heddylamar: was the basil bitter? I've discovered that dried tomatoes work really well for counteracting a bitter pesto.

We've spent a few nights in a row eating pulled pork with homemade BBQ sauce mixed in, a big pot of beans, jicama slaw, guacamole and homemade corn tortillas since I just got a beautiful, handmade hardwood tortilla press. Tonight will be more of the pork and beans, but moving on to green salad.
