What we ate on Wednesday (09/10/14)

Well, I did baked Salmon fillets with a sort of balsamic glaze, mushrooms sautéed in butter and freshly grated nutmeg, and some herby couscous. Unfortunately, I realised when it was ready that I was still full from a rather generous lunch at work so I don't know how it tasted. However, my brother pronounced it "bang on", so hopefully it was okay. I'll probably see about re-heating it a bit later but it might be rather dry by then.

Anyway, that's my sad culinary tale - what about everyone else?

A NOLA staple for lunch on Monday, but rules are to be broken and we're having it for supper this evening. Red beans and rice. The andouille is from a batch we made and smoked on Labor Day.

Tonight's repast will consist of a grilled burger made with a 50/50 blend of Italian sausage and ground beef. I'll finish it with mayo, cheese and tomato. A side salad and a beer will round out the meal.

A dessert of chocolate cake with a ganache topping will follow later.

I actually made the cake yesterday because it's my grandson's favorite and I have him after school for two days.

"NOLA"?? Explain please Craig!

And I totally agree about breaking rules!

I'm planning on chicken fajitas with a combo of garden-fresh and farmer's market veggies, plus guacamole - unfortunately, can't get the avocados locally.

Bet your avocados are a tad more "local" than the rock hard efforts I have to put up with! (If I want a "ripe" avocado I will have to pay a small fortune for it - labelled "ripe and ready")

Er, but I digress! (Don't want to get chucked off the site just as I started re-posting!)

Your Chicken Fajitas sound delicious!
