i was waiting on you, kylie, to start the thread.

ok, so i doubt i'll be smoking since i'm exhausted from no days off of work, therefore veal and peppers has a good chance to make it in the pot.

brown the veal, add to some simmering tomatoes, add toasted garlic, dried herbs, cook down, then add green peppers to soften. finish with fresh basil.

done.

no, i'll be trying it for my first time.

there was a rece nt thread about brining and smoking fish. i have to look it up. my neighbour gave us a lot of tiny trout that he caught while fly fishing this past spring. they're too smal to deal with, so i think smoking is the way to go.

It sounds interesting, I am sure you will do a grand job

Do you need any certain equipment?

I saw on a Jamie Oliver show the other week, he watched a guy smoking fish and he had some wooden poles set up to hang the fish upside down on, then he covered it all with some sort of tarp, gee there was a lot of smoke

Yum! Smoked fish sounds delicious right now! I wish good fish wasn't so expensive here..


I'm gonna make a nice diet dinner tonight. Just don't know exactly what yet.
Thinking chicken breast in the oven, rice, lots of steamed veggies and a good sauce made with white wine, stock, sour cream and some herbs maybe.

Grilled chicken and Chinese spinach.

I wish I knew what the real name of this "Chinese spinach" is. I've been buying it from the same Hmong guy at the farmers market for three years now. He sells maybe 6 different kinds of green leafy vegetables. When I ask what a certain type is, he simply shrugs and says "Chinese spinach."

It's all pretty good, though.

Yeah, it's not amaranth, although he sells that, too. This particular vegetable tastes exactly like regular leaf spinach, but has a much thicker stalk. The stalk is actually the best tasting part, I think.

Edit: It may be "Malabar Spinach", aka saan choy. The photo looks similar:
