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.

we've shared our very own, first ever duck eggs tonight!
gently fried, accompanied by chips, mushy peas and sausages.

delicious (and at least now we know for sure theres at least one female duck out of the 8!)

Quite inventive last night.... :shock: butternut squash roasted with almonds, 'creamed' garlic mushrooms, saffron brown rice with chives, a red cabbage/onion/sesame seed salad, some al dente courgette and tomato relish, all organic, some of the stuff grown here.

Absolutely delicious! We should write a book. :roll:

Skate wings stuffed with Anchovies and Rosemarry, cooked in a Tomato and Lemon with Corriander sauce, served with Chabatta bread with olive oil and garlic and herbs.

Hmm, not sure I am looking forward to this.

Um, skate wings..... Fail, 2 out of the 4 portions were off, and the taste of stale urine was not appreciated by OH & number 1 son. Fortunately mine and daughters were fine, but having misgivings I did make sure we had lots of rhubarb crumble, and shop bought cream doughnuts for pudding!

Boboff - were the skate wings frozen? They are funny fish - freezing and/or time causes in increase in the amonia smell. They really need to be eaten as fresh as possible - even a short amount of time can make a huge difference :(

Well for tonights delectation we have a roast beef dinner. We were supposed to have it yesterday but we ended up with guests and had enchilladas instead. Now I have to rejig the weeks menu!

But damn it how happy we'll be!

Yeah they had yellow stickers on and I froze them, then put off having them for 3 or 4 days. Daft.

Tonight we have a retro "when dad lost his boat and we had no money, 101 recipes for mince favorite" Sweet and Sour meat balls with Rice.

Oh and I am cleaning out the oven!

Made some Chow Mein noodles with stir-fried Chinese cabbage and my usual O.D. of garlic.

We finally got round to subscribing for a veggiebag at our local health food shop. :cooldude:
So far we like the challenge of cooking with veggies we wouldn't have picked up otherwise.
And having a week supply of food is highly convenient and allows for some planning ahead.
