It is such a pleasure looking in the fridge & realizing there is something already cooked in there. I never could understand those "cooking for one" cookbooks. Are they written for people who don't have freezers?
I'm somewhat embarrassed to post what I'll probably have for supper, after reading all the beautifully planned and balanced delights above.
Generally, when I have a small amount of baba ganouj or hummus left over, I put it on pasta. I have a decent amount of hummus & a teeny bit of the ganouj & they're both getting mixed with pasta for my supper. I'll probably add some garlic & olive oil, and I'll have broccoli on the side.
Do you have any of your marmalade left. I made some Meyer lemon,Ginger, carrot marmalade back around the holidays and recently added it to a marinade for pork together with some flat Guiness,a little garlic and a dash of tamari. Splendid dish.
Whoa ~~ that would be fabulously delicious! I can see it as a marinade for something fatty like duck, as well.
I do have a little bit of marmalade unopened. Should probably rent a bank box to keep myself out of it. You have given me an opening for shameless bragging here ~
Part of the reason for making the seville marmalade was so that I could give a huge container of it to an English couple at Christmas. This couple are so kind to me, and the husband loves to cook. He made a special call the other day because he wanted to tell me how perfect the marmalade is! This is high praise coming from someone who must have had a great deal of old-fashioned dark bitter marmalade in his life.
Tonights dinner: Home made hamburgers, that's what hubby requested. He thinks a true Aussie bloke needs them from time to time. He'll be very frustraded when he finds out that we've forgotten to buy beetroot.
"When life gives you lemons, ask for Tequila and salt and give me a call."
Happy ~~ a question about the bizarre Australian custom of putting beets on burgers: Are they at least pickled beets? Don't they have wonderful pickled cucumbers in Switzerland? Try to get him to eat an American-style burger, with mustard and pickles & perhaps a little mayonnaise. Finding good cheese in Switzerland to put on his burger shouldn't be a problem.
I was wondering about the beetroot part of that post. I will not engage in puns.
Tonight I am dining out with friends at a restaurant called Granada and I will probably have the paella. It is a special occasion; the 20th anniversary of my reign as Queen (AND the first anatomically correct Queen) of a neighborhood renegade Krewe of O.A.K. I will be dining with my King and consort.
