Where's the Beef Tuesday, 9-16-14

Salt-crusted roasted herbed eye of round with roasted celery root/carrots and asparagus. Eye of round was put in the herb marinade yesterday evening after I tied up the bresaola (which was the other half of the 6+ pound eye and has been curing for the last 2 weeks) and we got it hung up to dry.

My dear sister took pity on my being all alone so she invited me for dinner tonight. I believe the menu includes gilled ribeyes, lyonnaise potatoes and a salad.

I'm making a quick chocolate cake with a ganache topping to take for dessert.

I found a recipe for something a lot like enchiladas, but using crepes instead of tortillas. I'm going to give that a try.

Any recommendations for sides?

Are you making beef/chicken enchiladas with them or something else? If you are making enchiladas, a Mexican rice or refried beans.

This time of year I use every opportunity to grill. The weather is absolutely perfect, not too hot and soon it will be too cold, though I try to grill even in the winter. So definitely grill, grill, grill.

Making it with ground beef. Those sound like good ideas. Thanks. Any good recipes for either of them?

It's our first foray into air-drying. Craig got the book Charcuterie, among other things, for X-mas and that's the recipe we are using. Bresaola seems like a fairly easy first try since it's a solid piece of meat. We're using a wine fridge for our drying chamber.

Out tonight so eating early.

Boned and skinned (thank you Mr butcher) chicken thighs, boiled new potatoes and carrots, watercress, steamed baby sweetcorn and sugar snap peas, followed by fat free natural yoghourt (home made) - all "free food" - and a spoonful of home made raspberry jam - 2 Syns.

What makes you think I'm on Slimming World. I went to the Drs for my tetanus booster y'day. Nurse decided to weigh me which was a shock so I looked up the nearest SW meeting and went last night. Bigger shock. The consultant's electronic scales weighed me in at 1/2 a stone more. Gulp!

Taking it seriously this time.
