Nice pictures guys!

My sweet neighbor brought over some of her homemade Chorizo, the kind one can trust doesn't have pig snouts, ears and the like. I cooked it up with some eggs and plopped it into burner toasted flour tortillas with grated cheese and chopped cilantro for a quick and delicious supper. I must get her recipe. She grinds her own pork shoulder for it.

As for tonight's dinner, not sure yet what that will be. And I know I don't feel like cooking. Might stop by Miso Sushi for some California rolls to bring home.
cheers chezza "every little helps".little & often will crack the problem mate!
sushi sounds good to me...yum!

I had to Google the baby squid, Harry. I like the variety of seafood in your dish. Great textures. Nice looking dinner.
I'm going to have spaghetti with a tomato sauce.

sounds damn tasty whiska & bloody good value too,mate!!.
i've got an early dentist appt this morning.my son lives in the same part of manchester,so i'll meet up with him after the dentist,jump on a tram into the city centre & hit china town for lunch.there's some pretty darn good buffet places there.there's one in particular where the local chinese shop & office workers eat.so that's the one we usually go to.
after lunch we'll probably watch a film in the "imax"theatre at the printworks then have a few beers in the "northern quarter".it's where most of the good bars,clubs & restaurants are

Thanks, Harry.
The rest of the community might have heard of chipirones, but I hadn't. Squid isn't very popular here and I've only seen it in the stores a couple times.

I keep asking for a sausage filling attachment for my Kenwood mixer (a bit like a Kitchenaid but not as posh) for Christmas but I think I'll have to buy my own. I'm very partial to any member of the sausage family but especially chorizo.

(I smiled at the bit about pig's ears. When I was a little girl we lived next door to the butcher. Whenever I was ill with some childhood diseases he would send me a couple of pig's ears or a pig's tail as a treat for my tea. Loved them. I chomped on the gristly bits of the ears and when I'd picked the meat of the tail I'd suck the bones. Disgusting but I was only little,)

Great pictures everyone! It all looks and sounds so good.
I'll have to make spaghetti soon, after seeing Pac's photo...haven't had it in quite a while. Rocketdawg, it doesn't matter what color plate your pork loin meal is on - it looks really yummy. Harry, your cream sauce sounds incredible. And the stuffed pork chops with craisins...I could go for that. The trouble with reading all these daily menus is I want one of everything.

Nothing much to speak of for me. Various cheeses and crackers, and an apple.
