Saturday nite dinner..Aug. 2, 2014

I think I'll be doing some grilled chicken thighs today, and some Dragon Lady Sesame Noodles.

What's up at your house?

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I'll make a hash brown skillet dish with kielbasa and cheese.

YUM, looks good, Joey!

I'll be having a steamed artichoke, and probably a sliced tomato or two.

I made a red cabbage salad (with apple, dried apricot, carrot, walnuts - orange juice dressing with fresh root ginger). Tried and successful recipe! Crunch heaven. Had it with some crumbed chicken fillets (price reduced).

When baking the chicken, I also used the oven to prepare for tomorrow's meal, i.e. baked some foraged damsons to make a sauce and par-baked a potato for potato rosti. I find this method makes the potato not watery when grated (more concentrated). Am having it with duck breast and asparagus.

I have used an oven thermometer to gauge the oven temperatures - on any given setting - at different shelf/rack levels. For instance, a central shelf at Mk 4 = Mk 5 2 shelves higher than this. So I can combine food on different shelves with their correct temperatures.

We had pan-fried burgers, couscous salad with grilled veggies and herb vinaigrette, sliced fresh tomato and homemade pickles.

I had a lonely grilled chicken breast just waiting to be slipped into a creamy sauce with fresh steamed broccoli, all mixed with pasta. Woke up with a taste for a chicken/cranberry/nut salad sandwich. I had my sandwich on a brioche roll. Made salads to go along with our sandwiches.
