Dinner Saturday 9th March

For dinner tonight we are cooking a corned silverside, it is simmering away on the stove as we speak

We are having that with steamed cauliflower and pumpkin and having a white sauce to go over everything

This is the first time we have cooked corned silverside, so hopefully it turns out nicely...we will keep checking it with the thermometer to make sure it is cooked through and not overcooked or undercooked

Corned silverside is yummy! Sure you'll like it :)

I'm a bit hungover. My mom slept over last night and I had 8 vodkas and I'm still on flu meds :(
Toast and poached eggs for dinner. Wish I didn't have to cook at all lol!

8 Vodkas? A "BIT" hungover? I salute you snip. I'd be either going back to bed, or not getting out at all...

I think I'm going with something called Beef & Noodles from my Cooking From Quilt Country cookbook. It's basically a pot roast shredded up and returned to it's cooking liquid along with some egg noodles. Bake until the broth has been absorbed. It makes a ton and means I won't have to cook tomorrow unless I want to.

I have to look up half the things you make, Kylie! I've never heard of silverside before. Fun to learn about different terms, cuts, etc.

We're going to dinner at some friends' house tonight. I offered to make the main dish and dessert, so I'm making Italian pot roast (made with Chianti, porcini mushrooms and rosemary) and lemon cheesecake and she's making salad, egg noodles and garlic bread, and providing the wine (except for the wine I'm using to make the roast).

I figure, since she's got to clean her house for guests, I'll do the main

Been doing a lot of revamping around the house lately mostly caused by our refrigerator dying last week, so things are a bit torn up around here.

As a result of our somewhat chaotic environment and activities, I put on a nice big pot of beef soup for tonight. I had some beautiful soup bones I roasted while we ate breakfast and did the rest a bit later. Plenty of carrots, celery and potatoes await their introduction about an hour before serving. Right now all that's in the pot are the soup bones, some browned beef cubes, sauteed onions and garlic, beef stock, red wine, barley and herbs/spices. Sure smells tasty.

I took a loaf of French bread out of the freezer to go with and made some pistachio pudding for dessert.
