Have a wonderful birthday dinner! I'm trying to remember some of the restaurants in Pretoria - but it was a while ago, so it's probably all changed. I remember some great Portuguese restaurant! have fun. x
I found fresh tumeric the other day for the first time in my life! So we are having dhal so that I can use the tumeric.

The weather will determine if I do a beef roast on the weber rotisserie or something cooked inside. Right now, it doesn't look promising for the rotisserie.

Happy Birthday, Snip!

Daughter is home from college so it will be a comfort food night. Chili Mac with bread and a salad.

Happy Birthday Snip. Kind of tied to the house today, waiting for the termite inspector, & the outcome. So far, the plan is ravioli (four cheese) 'lasagna', yellow & green zucchini/squash sauteed in butter & garlic, & lemon garlic bread.

I was somewhat disappointed in my Swai Meuneire a few days ago because IMO swai is just not good in that recipe because it's too thick. The classic Meuneire recipe is Petrale Sole Meuneire, so I'm going to see if I can find some nice sole or other thin fish and repeat the recipe tonight, and this time I'll remember the parsley!

I love fish but I haven't been eating much the last year because of my tiny kitchen in my temporary residence, but I guess I finally couldn't stand it anymore not cooking most of my own food, so I'm back to cooking about 5 evenings a week now. It's really great to be back to eating fish because it's so delicious and healthy. I often eat seafood 3-4 times a week particularly shrimp because it goes well in my Thai and Chinese recipes.

And I'm making another run on the Jalapeno Poppers! In fact I've already prepared them (complete with another photo shoot session) and they're resting in my refrigerator until it's almost the dinner hour. Film at 11... er... I mean photos at 11!

Greg, those poppers are addictive. I first saw them at a BBQ competition. There they were stuffed whole and smoked. I've made them a few times. I usually season the cream cheese with paprika, garlic and onion. Sometimes I stuff them with Lil Smokies sausage in addition to the cheese.

I can tell they're addictive! I'm already going back for another of the same tonight and it's been less than 24 hours since I first tried them!
