What Did You Eat Today?

Lena made this tonight and it was so good that it deserves to start a thread.

Nigella Lawson - Coq Au Riesling - Delish.com

She made it with chardonnay instead of Riesling, and regular chicken thighs and drumsticks, heavy whipping cream, and Portobello instead of oyster mushrooms and no bay leaf. Definitely a "wow" meal.

For lunch we had roast pork loin with roast potatoes and yorkshire puddings. (Our son provided the yorkshires).

For tea we had blue cheese and cheshire with crackers, both cheeses were made by DW. The blue cheese is particularly exceptional and goes well with a single malt.

ate out twice today (hardly ever happens). Parents came over to take our youngest out for birthday lunch. Son chose Ruby Tuesdays. I had salad bar and broccoli cheese soup (very rich and Velveety tasting).

For dinner, DH and i ate at Mexican restaurant. Nachos and several beers....helps that ease that Sunday night dread. (Class of 2012)

Fat and happy.

I baked a coconut ginger cake. Had a piece for dinner with a salad and a glass of merlot.

Food porn follows:

No pic of salad - it was green and predictable.

Had my GF over for dinner. Grilled grass fed lamb chops, sautéed green beans and salad with Trader Joe Cabernet. Very, very good.

Sprouts' southwestern chicken sausage with sauteed onions and orange bell peppers over rice. Good, but not exceptional. Then came dessert...huge ripe strawberries dipped in ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate. Simple and most excellent! I confess...I dipped the strawberries this afternoon and scarfed down a couple before I started preparing dinner.

Ropa vieja: typically made from leftovers. In this case the main components were the rest of yesterday´s minced pork, fried onions, whipped egg, French fries and chick peas. All of it mixed and fried. Not bad.

Some good pulled pork at a stand at the nearby weekend market for lunch. Lamb Marsala, some sort of spicy lentils, some sort of egg plant (yuck) and rice with almonds and apricots made by a friend who just returned from a 7 week trip to India and Nepal.

So far, a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. For lunch I'm planning to have a baked chicken breast and a salad. Don't know yet about dinner.

I've recently bought the "How to Cook Everything Book" and plan to work my way through it. I'm told I'm a good cook but my standard fare is getting boring.

Yesterday I learned how to make homemade mayo. That was the base for homemade tartar sauce, which accompanied the fresh fish and chips that I fried up...everything fresh and delicious!

Today, I have a potato au gratin in the oven for lunch to go with the fish that is broiling as we speak!

What I'm finding is true homemade is WAY cheaper than store bought. The finished mayo cost about 30 cents and made two cups. The equivalent amount of store bought tarter sauce would have been $2.50.
