Saturday dinner - 19 January

It's a long weekend here (no work on Monday for the lady of the house)...so I've got some cooking to attend to.

Dinner tonight:

Butternut squash soup with crab fritter and sage cream (I'll post the recipe as soon as I finish creating it)

Chicken marsala with risotto timbale and julienned green beans

Chocolate cake with roasted blood orange slices

Pinot Noir with dinner......Maker's before dinner


What are you having?

PIE! Although I can't take credit for making them as they came from an organic shop. The boy and wonderful neighbors are having Steak & Kidney and I'm having Butternut Squash & Goat Cheese. Served with roasted mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.

I'm making aguynamedrobert's chocolate brownies for dessert! YUM!

Oh and a lovely bottle of Rioja I've been saving!

Well, before I had got past checking out the fridge etc to see what I fancied, my girlfriend phoned, so anticipating a bit of a chat (which I was right about), I just grabbed the cold beef chipolatas from last night's dinner, and the tub of feta with semi-dried tomatoes and a fork. A bit of a tasting plate became my dinner, all washed down with a bottle of cider.

I'm making pork enchiladas with the last of the pork chile verde I made Sunday, with guacamole and Mexican rice.

You're posting this too right? I just found 5lbs of blood oranges for $3 so I want this recipe!

Tonight we have an extra teen over and I don't know their picky level so I'm going simple. Roast chicken, root veggies and potatoes tossed with some EVOO, balsamic vinegar and s&p, either green beans or broccoli, caesar salad and a loaf of french bread. Hmmm...I'd best think about getting that bread started soon shouldn't I?

If I see that recipe from you soon Vera we'll have that cake for dessert. If I don't see it, I may have to improvise one and see how close I get. LOL.

The cake is a double chocolate cake recipe I jacked from Epicurious.com. As for the blood oranges....

segment three oranges and gently lay on a parchment sheet on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with a bit of brown sugar and roast till the sugar caremelizes. You could also use a blow torch as you'd do a creme brulee, which is what I'll do. Slice the cake, dollop some whipped cream off center, and place the roasted orange segments into the cream.
