What's for dinner tonight?

Post by Le-Dolly on Sun Oct 06, 2013 4:53 pm

I am hopefully resurrecting a thread opened by 'er indoors' in the old place. It was quite popular then, let's hope it is now.

As it is the season of plenty, we will be sitting down to Wild Mushroom Risotto, featuring some of the finest of today's picked fungi. Cep's will feature heavily, or Porcini, as our Italian brethren would have it. Chanterelles, Morilles, Pleurotes, Mouton de Pied, Trompet de Mort, a couple of Puffballs and a Bracket or two will all add to the pot.

This dish will be an oven baked Risotto, so none of that poncing about adding a teaspoon of stock at a time, every one in the pool together.
Yum! Yum!

Bit late to the table here!

We had Orange Pan-Glazed Tempeh, with Celeriac & Potato mash and steamed Broccoli. Simple, and dead yummy! Very Happy

Tonight's dinner will be Liver & Onions, but with a twist. The liver will be supplied by a young cowlet (veal), two fluffy bunnies and a duck. The 'gravy' will be made up from an added tin of tomatoes. Twenty minutes before the end of the cooking time, slices of smoked back bacon and whole mushrooms will be added to the pot. Served with mash and peas.
Yum! Yum!

Mmmm ... sounds yummy... but where do you get your sliced smoked bacon from ????

Just finished making a moussaka using home grown aubergines.. all ready for the oven later. I always bake my aubergines in the oven with just a brushing of olive oil.. not so greasy as frying them and the finished result tastes just the same.

And over here in vegetarian valley, it's Summer Paella and salad. Simple, and simply delicious.

The producers would like it to be known that no animals were harmed in the making of this meal...

Hi Tony,
I slice my own, I got the lump of bacon, actually almost half a flitch, from Pomme Banana in La Souterraine a couple of months ago. They do have bacon on a regular basis, it's just pot luck as to what is available. Bon appétit.

I don't know.. we need Le-Dolly to answer.

Dinner tonight... roast chicken and all the trimmings... can't beat a good roast dinner, and thinking in advance, the remaining chicken will probably go into a casserole tomorrow. Bones for stock and all the manky leftover bits for the dog.

You can get smoked streaky bacon in any Leader price. It is in a pack, usually by the section with sliced meat for sandwiches etc. It's very thinly sliced but very good.
By the way what dog gets the scraps !!!!

What is proper cured bacon? The product that I have written about was 'smoked back bacon', as far as I am aware all bacon is cured. Green bacon is also available at the store mentioned. You take pot luck as to what is in store that day, some day's aplenty, some day's nothing at all.

It's not a problem finding the bacon, and I prefer the French bacon anyway, but my mom says it's too thin and wants her normal English back bacon!
Thanks Le Dolly, it's the green bacon she wants.
I've asked for poitrine at the butchers, but it's just belly pork or such like and not cured.
I'll give them a go.

I'll give them a go.

Tonight's offering will be Phat Thai with copious amounts of both dried river & fresh brown shrimps with black tigers for the bulky bits.
Yum! Yum!

I've suggested that, but she says it's not the same (it's an age thing!)
Thanks for the info.

As I seem to have a surfeit of stale bread I am attempting a savoury bread & butter pudding (with leeks, mustard and blue cheese)... Probably with a salad or some steamed veg.

Today was Curry Night, turkey Madras for the OH, and a sea bream Phal for me. Accompanied with Saag Aloo, Courgette Bahjis (note to Tocyvi, something constructive to do with the dreaded courgette), Naans and Pappadums.
Yum! Yum!

Tonight we will be feasting on Paupiettes de Veau, Savoy Cabbage with Lardons, Popeye's favourite and Baked Spuds. To follow will be a variety of cheeses and to finish, Plum Crumble.
Yum! Yum!

Tonight is a straightforward Chilli con Carne and basmati rice... making a big pot so some goes in the freezer for when I don't have time to cook properly.

I always make 'a bit too much', but I make a version of Cornish Pasties with the leftovers.
