What Was For Dinner - Mon. 20th Oct

I bought some "fresh" gnocci (in a packet...don't judge me! ) that needed to be eaten.

I recalled better results from frying it (rather than boiling it), so I lightly fried it off in some chicken fat and mixed it into cooked carrots, peas and red pepper - along with fried onions, garlic, tomato puree and harissa. Plated it up and topped off with some good grated cheese it was quite good.

Fettuccine Alfredo. With homemade fettuccine if I have the energy. We'll also have a salad.

I guess the curry I cooked a few nights ago didn't quite satisfy GF. She was hinting around for some butter chicken because it is my day off and it takes a bit of prep and cook time. It is damp and rainy out, so on goes the jazz, crack a cold one, do some house work and make some up. I am also going to make up some cauliflower pakora and onion bahji while I have the oil out. I have some tamarind chutney going right now. GF hates the smell of asafoetida. She says it smells like stinky armpits. I guess I like the smell of stinky armpits because I think it smells delightful in the place....

She just lit a bunch of candles...ha ha ha!

LOL... my wife's the same way. I don't mind the smell myself, but it does seem to permeate everything in the cupboard. I have to store it in a plastic bag, and then store the plastic bag in a container with an airtight lid. Even then, she swears she can still smell it.

My daughter actually calls it "azz-and-feet-ida" because of the smell!

dw, despite all of her flaws , is being really great and is making chicken parm a spaghetti. my fave.

in fact, i love it so much that when i had my wisdom teeth pulled and was only supposed to eat soft foods for a few days, i took my mom's chicken parm and pasta and pulsed it in a blender so i could eat it.

looks like it will be refried beans, fresh tortillas, and finally the last of a huge bowl of cole slaw

What was for dinner? Funny to see that, since it's only 6:20 pm here right now We're going to head to Dupont Circle here in DC and see what looks good when we get off the metro.

I will bear in mind the crucial word IS (for dinner) next time GG since most of you spring from US. Incidentally, around 6 p.m. is when I would have dinner anyway. I guess people who work have a later meal.
