Three days ago: rice with corn, garlic, and chilis.
Two days ago: ployes.
Today: a congee, by mixing the leftovers of the above rice dish with some dashi, and letting it sit on the stove for ~6 hours just below boiling.

For dinner today I made pasta with pesto, peas and bacon. Wasn't sure if it would work but it was delicious.

Bless me Father, for I have sinned. All I made today was a custom sauce for Lin-Ling pot stickers. :oops:
I give myself a penance of fresh bread, and cabbage soup. :twisted:

Today I made mince meat sauce with new potatoes and runner beans. Really simple, but delicious, I always forget how much I like runner beans.

Yesterday I was lazy and unhealthy, I made pasta with cheese (and salt and butter, I put so much of them in that I think they merit a mention).

A batch of cream cheese brownies to take to a job interview. At this point, of a bribe will help, I'll do it. And they are great brownies.

Grilled mahi-mahi, quinoa, spring mix. Aaaaand... Sarah made us some homemade ice cream with blackberries and dark chocolate chunks mixed in. We still have a good half gallon of blackberries left. It has been a good day.

Grilled chicken and corn on the cob and potatoes, together with green salad for dinner with my family. Brother and wife and kids all in town. Finsihed up with mom's plum cake and ice cream.
A nice summer meal. A bit hot and sticky, so after dinner on the screened porch we went inside for dessert.

A porridge with wheat, chickpeas, barley, almonds, raisins, and chicken (the chicken with it all got me intrigued). I can't seem to find the name of the dish right now, but the recipe I adapted from was allegedly Turkish in origin (it also called for other dried fruits, and another kind of beans I didn't have). It tasted good, if sort of alien.

Channa masala. I took my time and simmered the sauce for a fair while before adding the channa. A bit heavy on the toasted cumin seeds, but good.

Yesterday I made grilled chicken with vegetables (broccoli, carrot, runner beans, bell pepper, snap peas and baby corn) and sweet chili sauce. I was going to make some couscous with it, but then couldn't be arsed to dirty yet another pot, had too much dishes to do anyway.

Also yesterday I used some of the left-over chicken to make a little midnight feast of pasta and the chicken in a little cream sauce with some bell peper for the colour.

Today I made pasta and mincemeat bell pepper tomato sauce. (I have no idea of the correct spelling of that word/group of words. Should I write everything separeted, together, with dashes in the middle, what?) Anyway, it was good and there's tons of it left.

Pork chunks braised in a liquid of orange juice, soy sauce, maple syrup and sesame oil, with one hot dried chili pepper, plenty of garlic and ginger, some choopped cilantro and a shake of cumin and black pepper. Dang good.
Also a huge pot of steam/fried veggies. Cleared out the fridge and ate well too.
I have been working with skinless chicken-I clean my own so I have been rendering the fat out of the skin and now have a nice bowlful. I roasted a pan full of aging spuds in some of the schmaltz-they're great to snack on, or to add to hash or an omelet.

I forgot to go to the shops today and at first I thought that I didn't have any food in the house and I would have to make some pasta with some more pasta, but then I found I did have an onion, two old carrots, some soy meat, garlic and cream. I mixed them with the pasta and some water and put the whole thing in the oven. I was rather sceptical at first, but it turned out to be delicious! Now I have to stop eating it so I'll have some left over for tomorrow.

Yesterday I made some onion, red cabbage, and green cabbage salad...enough to fill a 2.5qt casserole :). Kind of like this, but the sauce was about 10 soy sauce:1 sesame oil:1 mirin:2 syrup (honey and molasses).

French toast.

And there's chilli slow cooking in the oven at this very moment which I'm about to check. If it's done, I get to go to bed. If it needs more time, I watch some more telly.

Made the most yummiest pizza last night with quick home made wholemeal base into which I mixed garlic, chilli and oreganum; a mix of tomato pasta sauce and Jebobek's home made tomato relish; camembert; fried mushrooms and two types of cheddar. It was gorgeous.

Last night I made a chicken pot pie with cream cheese instead of gravy, and with a zucchini and some rosemary fresh from the garden. I cheated and used storebought crusts, though. It turned out fairly well.

Going to try my own take on beef and Guinness stew tonight

So far I'm planning on
2lbs of beef
a pound of carrots
a pound of mushrooms (Because I like mushrooms)
a pound of potatoes
Thyme
Parsley
Rosemerry
Onion Flakes
Garlic
Guinness Extra Stout and Beef Broth to cover
A couple of tablespoons of flour or cornstarch.

Still unsure about some of the proportions and amounts, (Like how much Guinness to how much Beef Broth) but we'll see what happens. I plan on browning the beef, and then throwing it all in a slow cooker for a couple hours. Any suggestions?

Edit: I'm pretty sure this isn't the right thread for this. I won't feel bad if someone moved it.

We have an excess of chicken breasts in the freezer for some reason, so today I am making chicken stew with fresh pineapple, sweet red peppers, sweet onions and sweet potoatoes (that's a lot of sweet, but I think it's actually pretty healthy stuff), soy sauce, a bit of brown sugar, and chili oil. When it gets close to done, I will make a pot of brown basmati rice to go with it.

Rice fried with onions, orange peppers, garlic, chilli, mixed herbs, tuna, kidney beans, chickpeas and tomato paste. It was fan-frigging-tastic.

Dekker-
You have to go easy on the stout when making stew. I use less than one can-just about 10 oz. for a big batch. Will you try again?

Slow-cooked mango lamb necks. Last night and the night before, because I'm never home for enough hours all at once to do that much slow cooking in one go. Haven't tried it yet, because it was midnight last night when I finally fridged it and dragged my sleep-deprived arse off to bed. Shall eat some tonight.

One of my roommates had his family over so we used it as excuse to fire up the smoker. We made:
brisket
grilled chicken
a bacon explosion
grilled veggies
potato salad
grilled corn with chili-lime butter
green salad
baked beans
pecan pie
key lime pie
vanilla ice cream
chocolate malted ice cream
Today I'm thinking of doing some ribs and a chuck steak in the smoker, but there's plenty of leftovers. Yeah!

Pork ribs rubbed with 5 spice mix, then smoked and glazed with mango-chili teriyaki sauce. Excellent eating.
Aiming to make some corn soup later, the coconut milk angle is sounding very appealing....

Pasties from leftover spiced pastry and leftover slow-cooked mango lamb necks. Good with white wine (probably even beetter with beer but I was already into the wine) and The Fifth Element.
