What are we all having for dinner?

You all seem to be such proficient chefs. Well here is a place to share some of that cooking knowledge. Or do you have a cooking problem? Ask away. Jams and chutneys go here too.

That sounds like a brilliant combination, Annpan.

We had (last night) a roast made from ground nuts and onions, mixed with a few herbs, and whole chestnuts and chopped parsnips, bit of salt and black pepper. We thought it would turn out too sweet but no, it was just right; an interesting combination and worth doing regularly. I'm not a great fan of parsnips so this is one dish I can look forward to again.

Served with home-made chutney, mint sauce, broccoli, carrots, salad, everything organic of course, it was namm.
There is no question. Cap and Share or TEQs is the answer. Even Cap and Dividend!

Tonight it's hake, chips and guess what .... PSB.

Tonight it's 'something' and leeks cos they need using up quickly! It's great I've got so much in the way of veggies right now and all nice ones. :iconbiggrin:

Actually my OH is going to do a leek and mushroom risotto. :iconbiggrin:

Actually it was interesting to taste the kale sprouts along with the PSB sprouts - they are quite similar in a way only one is more cabbagey and one is more brocolli like (obviously!) but I love both.

If you lived closer i'd let you have some of mine. I only shoot about 4 a year - which is enough meat for a family of 4. the rest of the year we live off lentils and beans.

Leek and potato soup, chunky version, all home grown.

Served with pumpkin walnut cheesy griddle scones (pumpkin and walnuts home grown). The pumpkin made the scone mix a bit sloppy but they cooked fine in the end. Was an experiment I probably won't do again but hey why not? :iconbiggrin:

Having the rest of it all tonight so easy dinner after spending hours yesterday making it all - but it was supposed to rain!

I already had cheese soufflés and alfalfa, pear and parmesan salad (the dressing was tarragon cider vingegar and local olive oil)...but now I have read all your dinners I am hungry again already:(

Bit of a detox today to purge myself of the weekends overindulgence!

Brown rice, with steamed cabbage, leeks, carrots and peppers all dressed with sesame oil, tamari, parsley and homemade hot pepper sauce.

Yummy and good for me!
