Thanks, Snip!

I hope no one gets the impression we eat this well every night, because we don't. There are countless untold meals of beans & rice, salads, and Chinese takeout that I don't even mention on these threads. I mostly try to share the meals that I think people might find interesting or different.

Change of plans here, too. Going for a swim and then dinner with a friend. But, since I had everything ready for my take on Bombay Potatoes as a veggie main, I went ahead and finished what I had started. I added cumin seeds to the potatoes while cooking, used the same water for the broccoli (blanched to tender). Used tomatoes that I had from the garden (in the freezer), added some diced green pepper. Had some toasted pecans, tossed those on top instead of the cashews I'd planned on using, added two carrots (small, julienned [except I cheated--I used my lemon zester to get the strips] and three pearl onions sliced--since I had those hanging around). Marinated the paneer in oil with my friend's curry/g. marsala sauce while doing everything else. As a main--(had to have it for lunch), it is very filling. Oh, I used my friend's curry/g. marsala powder, some Meyer lemon zest and I added more hot pepper flakes to the dish. And I put the mustard seeds, cumin (I used seeds), hot pepper flakes, chili, turmeric, and g. marsala in the oil first--added the other stuff once the mustard seeds started to dance. Here's a pic:

It was quite tasty (the way I made it). I didn't measure the amount of "curry" I used--my friend's curry powder/g. marsala is to die for.

I probably should have used more tomatoes--I had 1/2 of a big ziplock bag of tomatoes I had prepped for roasting in the freezer. I chopped those and simmered them while the potatoes cooked--I didn't measure the amount. When I re-heat what's left, I will add some tomato juice that I have in the freezer. The flavor combination is nice. I couldn't find any spinach in my freezer (I love spinach-potatoes-garbanzo beans--struck out on both--no spinach, no garbanzo beans, but I had the potatoes!) and I had some broccoli that was begging to be used before it went bad, so tossed in the broccoli. I was planning it as a main dish, not a side. It makes a fair amount. That was probably 2.5 side-sized servings that I dished out.

I'm serving it over pappardelle noodles with french style green beans and homemade peasant bread on the side. For the wine pairing, I have a nice rosÚ from the Jura region of France.

I just love making "fancy pants" dinners once in a while.
That all sounds lovely Steve, hope you have a fabulous time

That looks delicious, Kylie.

I changed my dinner plans, too. I'm going to grill a ribeye and a potato, saute some shrooms and shallots and the green will be broccoli with slivered almonds and olive oil. Oh, and garlic bread
