What's cooking..Sat. 3/5/16?

We're expecting rain today so it's a good day for soup!

I'm using the tail end of a tri tip, cut up and doing Steve Kroll's recipe that sounds like home to me.

Hungarian Goulash Soup

I'm defrosting the other half of the stuffed flank steak from a while back. I haven't figured out why the sides will be.

Hmm. I have a bunch of taco meat I've been eating on for the past few days, maybe I'll turn some into a soup! Thanks for the inspiration, Kay!

Thumbs down

I tried a Jamie Oliver recipe (which is usually good) but proved to be less than successful!

It was butterflied roast lamb with a stuffing (black olives, garlic confit, sun dried tomatoes and capers blitzed) that was baked with potato chunks in a lemon juice solution (and a little oil).

I accomplished preparing the recipe e.g. deboning the lamb, stuffing it and tying it up. However, I was suspicious of the oven temperature - 250oC/Mark 9 for the first half hour (then turned down after that) but went with it. Not good - it charred the bits of stuffing.

The timing was such that the lamb was cooked long before the potatoes were done (it just said to quarter baking potatoes but obviously this depends on how elongated they are - I cut mine into 6 pieces).

The taste of the stuffing was not that great, i.e. didn't do much for the lamb.

Have a "need" for fish today. So...

We're going to have grilled salmon, steamed Italian green beans and baked potatoes.

Thanks, Kay! I have a few veggies that have seen better days. DH is coming home after a three day "ahem" "business trip" to Ft. Lauderdale. Does not sound like a whole lot of business took place. But who am I to judge?

Have feet will travel. It's nice enough to walk along the lake today. Dx made some kind of chicken salad which she seems mighty pleased with, and she's been baking too.
