Since I didn't get to make the Scallops Tommy out of Chef June's book, I'm making it this evening.

June, I'm also making the pound cake on pg 161. Can I use sweetened coconut or would that make it cloyingly sweet?

We had lunch instead of supper (which will be fruit and cheese). We had piatto rustico -stewed vegetables served in a hollowed out bread from Anna Del Conte's book "Amaretto, Apple Cake and Artickes". Just right for a drizzly but not to cold day. :) Ages since I followed a recipe so precisely.....especially such a simple one, but nice.

Tonight will be one of my All-Time faves :)

it doesn`t really have a name exactly, but it`s a Chinese squash that I grow (it`s like vegetable spaghetti), but I pick them when they are just big enough for 2 people (football sized roughly) I cut these in half, top to bottom, scoop out the seeds to make 2 bowls.
I score the inside of the bowls and rub in a little salt, then add my filling.

the filling is Lamb mince, onion, chili (of course!), garlic, fenugreek leaves, a Green bell peper, Half Cooked rice (this is ensential that it be only Half cooked!) a dash of Soy sauce, and a little ginger powder, and a few mint flakes.
pack this filling into the bowl when it`s gone cold, make sure there`s No air gaps, put a few slices of cheese on the top, and then double wrap in tin-foil.

bake in the over for 2 hours on a low to medium heat.

be VERY VERY!!!! carefull when opening the foil, the steam blast will burn you faster than you can move! so allow a minute for this settle.
put these then into propper bowls, and put the bowl on a plate, leave the tin foil as it is (it saves on washing up, and keeps the heat in).

I work nights, so I eat dinner around 9am... sounds weird I know...

Sauteed chicken breast w/chardonnay & leek sauce, baby red halves steamed in parchment with some butter/thyme/seasalt, and a few steamed green beans.

Small scoop of vanilla with macerated strawberries and balsamic for dessert.

imo, THAT will make Monday a special day! That is my favorite dish in the whole world. I don't make it often enough. Guess I'm too busy "playing" with new things....

I much prefer the unsweetened coconut, Jan, but the first time I ever had the cake (when Carmen, my friend, made it, she used the Baker's stuff from the supermarket.
