What's for dinner? May 4, 2014

I'll probably have a fish taco. Just looked through the freezer and I have 2 more good sized pieces of Trader Joe's breaded halibut, and still have plenty of cabbage and tortillas in the fridge. Easy dinner that I never get tired of.

What's on everyone's menu?

Some more of yesterday's 4 bird roast - even better cold the second day - with new potatoes, steamed broccolini and a giant mushroom sauted in butter, topped with ale and onion marmalade sauce (I am ashamed to admit this last came out of a packet but was excellent).

Accompanied by a glass or two of South African sauvignon blanc. Not exciting but acceptable.

Haven't decided on dessert yet. Either yoghourt and something or fruit on its own or if I'm feeling wicked a couple of chocolate covered Hobnob biscuits (cookies)

I have no clue whatsoever what we will be having.

We went out last night (I had a horrible bacon cheeseburger at Swiss Chalet... I think they should stick to chicken!) so won't be doing that tonight.

We still have to go shopping so will probably pick something up then.

I'm going to try a pressure cooker BBQ spiced pulled pork using some awesome Mead that was a gift. Unless I drink it all first. I have two bottles so I'd probably pass out before I used it up so it's looking good.

Served on Hawaiian sweet rolls with cole slaw (on the sammitch!.) I have some double chocolate gelato and some brownie brittle to crunch on top for nachspeise. Fro(insert umlaut)he Sontag.

It has been raining all day. I've been lazing around in my fleecy jammies. I had arugula, asparagus, green onions, double-smoked bacon lardons, green and red peppers, and spinach still prepped from the dishes I made on Friday. What to make? What to make? Thought of pasta but I don't eat a lot of pasta so I made an omelet since I didn't have eggs for breakfast. Collected 18 eggs this morning, so figured I could eat some of them. Anyone want to buy some eggs <g>?

Tonight was salmon with a glaze of herbs, spices, Dijon mustard, white wine, and lemon juice. Served with basmati white rice and steamed broccoli.

Sounds good! How do you make your basmati? I was taught to rinse it in cold water 3-4 times, and then let it soak about 20 minutes in warm water, drain it, and then cook it. I only use white basmati from India (and prefer brown basmati--rarely make the white). I recently made white basmati toasting it (no washing first) in ghee, cooking it with 7 curry leaves, and "dressing it" with cumin seeds popped in ghee. It turned out great, but I've never made basmati without washing it first. So, how do you do yours?

I made a dish with chicken, tomato, green olives, roasted red peppers, onion and garlic seasoned with taco seasoning. We also had a pasta salad and some rolls.
