Sunday the 29th - Dinner?

It's going to be a cold, rainy day so we have a hearty beef barley soup with mushrooms and some ciabatta bread for dinner tonight.

...and you?

I'm making coney islands - hotdogs topped with chili and diced onion along with part of a package of tater tots to catch the over flow.

Spiral cut ham....au gratin potatoes (dude...the blonde roux was made from bacon grease...Heart healthy!!!) green beans...homemade rolls, and brownies with cream cheese swirls.

OMG...I think I have created the best potatoes ever...definitely the best I've ever made.

I peeled and sliced baking potatoes and par-boiled them for about 7 minutes. Then I put bacon grease and butter in a sauce pan, and added finely diced garlic and onions...allowed to cook a bit...then added flour and cooked until the flour just started to blonde. Added 1 cup of warm milk, a can of cream of mushroom soup, american cheese, cheddar cheese, smoked cheddar, and shredded parmesian with a teaspoon of concentrated chicken stock paste. Once it was all fully melted, I poured it over the potatoes in a large cassarole dish, and cooked for 45 minutes at 350f. Then 10 minutes before it was done, topped with more shredded cheddar and bacon bits. Super delicious and you'll need a prescription for "Zetia" cholesterol medication afterward.

after last night's carnivorous cavortings,my desire for all things piscean overwhelmed me.to "balance the scales"(gettit?see what i did there?no?oh well...)i decided on fried fish.not just any old fried fish,no siree,but a dish inspired by mouthwatering seafood dishes i have devoured when on holiday in italy,in particular sardinia,and rika,the drop dead gorgeous presenter of "dining with the chef"on nhk.said programme is the only cookery prog i watch these days because a)i love japanese food b)i love rika!
any road up,i saw rikafrying some veg dredged in potato flour & it looked absolutely deelish,lightly coloured & crispy.sooooo,thunk i,if that works for rika'sveg,i bet it would work on fish.next,the seasoning.rikais japanese,so i thought umami.umami dust to be precise.so the cogs whirred,the gears turned,my heart beat faster at the thought of rikaand i had my "eureka"(gettit?see what i did there? u rika,eureka...oh forget it then)...harry's fritto misto di mare(prawns,chipirones(baby squid) & haddock loin)lightly dusted with potato starch/umami dust served with a simple green salad of romaine lettuce,sweet emerald green toms,sugar drop toms,chilean baby hass avocados & giant egyptian spring onions.salad dressing was an equally simple fruity italian evoo & californian meyer lemon juice.super chilled chablis icier than rudolf's nose.thank you!

To heck with the fried fish... how were you able to use so many smilies and post so many pics in one post? I know I've run into a limit several times before and had to delete smilies and post the pics over two posts...

But seriously, lovely dinner. Beautiful breading.

Although I have never said this before, today we're having Sunday Gravy. Today is our kids' birthday (birthdays? ) and they love the family spaghetti sauce recipe.

Fried chicken and cabbage salad.

I sure do miss those Christmas cookies and that mince pie!
