Dinner Wednesday 26/09?

I'm making chicken nihari with nan bread.nihari is a very well known food in my country,its a kind of curry that can be made with beef,mutton or chicken.Its really yummy,served hot with hot nan bread and a platter of chopped ginger,corriander,green chilis and lemons.And for dessert,i'm making a banana cake.Found this new recipe on net that i'm going to try today as i wanted a different banana cake,not my old recipe that is way too light and fluffy.
So what about u guys out there?

Hi there, Sarah! Your dinner sounds very tasty! What is the matter with light-n-fluffy? I think those qualities are good in a cake!


For us tonight, I'm not sure. I might make BBQ'd beef patties (ground beef patties cooked in a bbq sauce), mashed potatoes and either corn or green beans.

well yes vanilla!normally i love light and fluffy cakes,thats how most cakes r supposed to be,but for some reason,lately i have been craving an overly rich and dense banana cake,but sadly the recipe i tried today didnt live upto my expectation.it came out very light too.lol

I made some fresh cheese yesterday, so will use it to make a stuffing for pasta shells, with a marinara sauce.
sarah, maybe you could make banana bread instead?

Home made bread and vegetable soup. I had to use the last of some vegetables and herbs before they go bad, and besides a little chopping, it's easy to make.

Oriental pot stickers and egg rolls.
Anyone got tips on the frying part to keep them from sticking?

cheese burger or tacos. i have ground beef that has to be used. dessert is a crescent dough creation. dough, cream cheese, and jam. it is very good but so bad for my blood sugar. i cut sugar in half and used sugar free jam.

I had little notice that 2 dear old friends will arrive for dinner tonight, and not enough time to change the plans of having leftovers...I canned sweet corn and mowed today...these friends pop over about twice a year and have been served quite an array of foods through the years....

so it is leftover broccoli, pesto and pasta and a potato, garlic and green bean dish. I did get a chance to put a baked custard in the oven..
