I fear that I am having duck again tonight because Carrefour had slashed the price on some items approaching their sell-by date. Even though duck is not one of the most expensive things, it is even better when it is 30% off.
The roasted potatoes can benefit from the duck fat!
And I learned how to make Spag bol from British colleagues when in Amsterdam. It is a good comfort food. Actually, so is the original Italian bolognese, though it is a tad more involved. This version is particularly austere: forthefeast.com/authentic-bolognese-sauce/ My Italian colleagues didn't make Spag Bol (though they enjoyed it, simply as another dish) but they did put more than a couple of spoonfuls of tomato in the mix.
Frankly, a lot of authentic dishes were made from what people in the region had on hand, unless one is talking about the most aristocratic feasts.
I reheated what I had last night -- soba noodles with a side of chayotes, carrot, & fish. Unfortunately I sort of forgot about it, so now must look at it to determine if it will really be dinner tonight.
I hesitated with most of these and ended up cooking chicons. Full of butter, quite delicious. The roastbeef was to the taste if the cats, as 2 of them allied to steal the leftovers, dragged if to the toilet ! And made a feast out of it. Tonight schnitzel I guess as I'll be in wien.

Wraps. Mini tortillas. I have some 'less than 5%' fat pork mince in a marinade made from oregano, minced garlic, minced ginger, cinnamon, finely chopped red chillies, and vinegar. Going to cook it down with some tomato puree, peppers and onion. Simple but yummy piled into mini wraps with salad leaves and topped with something or other...
a soft boiled egg and bread with cheddar for each of us, and tomato cranberry soup for me, and broth with alphabet noodles for agnes. and for dessert first some mango, and then yoghurt with raspberry jam.
as a starter i had an artichoke, first time i ever made that (though i sometimes bought some artichokes in brine before), so no idea if it was done correctly, but it tasted nice. after that, i had beetroot cooked with wine and yoghurt, and some bread. and for dessert a little bit of chocolate.
What a deliciously civilized meal, Lugg! Is your weather calming down?
You're eating quite elegantly, Rikita!
Tonight I'll be eating the rest of the bulgar I made last night -- saute the bulgur & a nice amount of minced garlic & minced fresh sage leaves in olive oil, then pour in boiling water, cover tightly & steam until tender. It sounds very plain, but tastes lovely. Last night I had it with eggplant & with a squash, bell pepper, carrot mélange. I have several vegetables on hand, but don't know what I'll fix for tonight.

looking around the kitchen, there is an open jar of sweet corn and some halloumi in the refrigerator, and i have a parsnip and some carrots that should be eaten soon, so i think i will fry all of this together and see what it tastes like ...
