Tuesday 15th November 2011 - What's for dinner?

Well what are you all cooking tonight?

I'm making a mushroom soup. First time doing it so hopefully it turns out ok and I hope I enjoy it. Fingers crossed. Not worried about cooking as it's not exactly difficult, I'm just worried I might end up not liking mushroom soup!

Good morning Kez, yesterday I bought some good quality toulouse and a box of Puy lentil.Cook the lentils in stock till nearly done drain and keep the stock. Fry the sausages in duck smaltz, remove from pot, fry garlic and onions in residual fat add some chopped dried toms and a bit of tom puree. Add sausages cooked lentils and enough stock to just cover, put on the lid and place in a medium oven for 40 mins.
Serve with good crusty bread. Pud will be I hope my wifes "jewish" baked cheese cake with raisins.

Good morning! Wow that does sound good. I happen to be a big fan of lentils. You know, I'm really surprised I don't eat them everyday. Afraid I'm not such a huge lover of sausages, I think it's the look of them that puts me off. Always have done. What would you recommend to substitute them with?
My Mum is begging me to make her a cheese cake at some point. That's her number one love in the food world. Her birthday's coming up on the 29th, her big 4 0, so maybe I'll make one for her then. Now to find a brilliant recipe!

I make it with chicken thighs, turkey necks, turkey gizzards. The gizzards have to be pressure cooked till tender then fried.

Google New York cheesecake, you can buy excellent Polish cream cheese in Tesco.

Interesting, I think I might just have to try your recipe out. Thanks!
And thank you for that advice also. I'll go and take a look now :)

Tonight's dinner is scheduled to be sausage stuffed pasta with a marinara sauce.

I think it will be quiche, with bacon, mushrooms, red peppers, garlic, cheese blend, served with a garden salad, and maybe toast.

I have no set plans yet but it will involve bacon or smoked ham.

I already got my bacon fix in this morning in the way of a breakfast sandwich.
I am drawing a big blank for tonight though.
