    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Dipping my toe back into the world of real food. Baked/Roasted (is there a difference? Which is correct if so?) Chicken Thigh, Parmesan Cauliflower Mash & Garlic Baby Spinach.

    Just want to say - sorry for being the weirdo that has liked everyones standard Tuesday night dinner from three weeks ago, I'm not being a stalker, just catching up. Wish I hadn't. You guys are so amazing. There is not one post that hasn't made me go 'Jeez I wish I had that right now' (okay maybe some of the ones with liver or tomato but still there was a tomato tainted Turkey sandwich I would destroy). Any way long story short. Keep doing what you are all doing it's inspiring... or at the very least hunger inducing - and if anyone wants to invite me round for dinner I'll be there in 5. What 5 amounts to depends on location

    So I have not posted much lately. I just cannot find the inspiration to cook for one that other members possess. I am so jealous. I've had grilled cheese three nights in a row! Mainly to use up leftovers, the cheese my husband left behind before he went back to work, and the bread leftover from small dudes lunches. It's like I am 15 again. With a lot more wrinkles. Jarlsberg, 3 year old cheddar and the most bland rubbish mozzarella you ever did taste.

    Remembering Anthony Bourdain, 1956 - 2018

    Just seen this.. No words. Unbelievably sad.

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Yup I could go for that. Your chips look wonderful! I think I'd have ruined the aesthetic with too much salt and splashes of malt vinegar before I got to photo taking. The omelette has me rethinking my dinner plans too.

    No I haven't accidentally missed 'snacking while' this was my actual dinner. No crackers no nothing. When I looked at the amount I had uh.. harmlessly nibbled while waiting for it to come to temperature, I cancelled dinner, and googled local defibrillators (There is one at the bank 34km away). It may have made it into my top 3 cheeses, and that is an accolade. Flinders Estate Ash Brie. EdTA: Top 3 easily available in Australia... may have been a little hasty once I got going down cheese memory lane. It's long.

    Captain low carb came home tonight, needed a dinner I could have on the table in 10 minutes - as travel time is fairly consistent but there are a LOT of roos to dodge. Porterhouse with stir fry of broc, Jalepeno (Con-Fusion I know) red bell and spring onion in oyster & ginger sauce.

    Small Dude has been nagging me for Sausage Rolls. Obliged him today. Made a batch for today, for his lunchboxes and for the freezer. We will see if that happens - which is why I don't make them very often!

    Ok, I tried the fresh baked whole, cut, plated and bite shots with this one, but as you are about to realise, this dinner has a face only a tummy can love. Chicken Jalepeno Popper Bake, a combo recipe from a bunch of lchf blogs for my husbands tea & freezer meals. Yeah, that was the best one.

    Its not pretty but its the first thing I've cooked in a while so I'm sharing my mediocrity. Pork loin chops and a CauliBroc Cheese - Born from my excited declaration when I got home from work and a grocery run. 'Look husband, these big chunks of short date (2 weeks) Jarlsberg straight off the wheel were 75% off! I got 2!' And his reply - "yeah, me too"

    Each to their own, I think they are very important to the more rural communities. I doubt you would find rave reviews for a 'Brisbane RSL' but go walkabout, say Charleville, say Kempsey, then they can be the heart and soul. Honest, unpretentious, a gathering place. And thats just my immigrant opinion.

    @liuzhou, "Returned and Services League". A little hard for me to explain, a "real" Aussie would do it so much better. Its like a bar/pub/bistro/gambling establishment honouring returned and current servicemen/women. Every town has one be it grand or.. not. If you're there at 0600 (I dont think many would be open) or 1800 you stand and show respect for colours and sunset (I only know Navy terms) - flag goes up/down shut your mouth, stop what you're doing, trumpets etc.

    Visiting the Husband. Went to the local RSL for dinner. He had an 'Aussie Pork Snitz' (pork, bbq sauce, fried egg, bacon, cheese) and I had the Barramundi. The meat and the fish were very good. Can't comment on the rest . We both tend to eat in sequence, like meat first then sundries.. Well tonight I had finished my Fish (literally just my fish, all salad and chips remained, same for husband) and got up to get my lil boys dessert, my husband also got up to get another drink. In the 1 minute we were both absent from the table but less than 20ft away (son still sitting eating) both our meals were taken and disposed of. I was too amused to complain about the staff imposed diet

    Panko crumbed chicken Schnitzel topped with salsa, tomato, spring onion, jalepeno, cheese and sour cream. With leftover skin on boiled chats, mashed and baked with goodies until crispy and creamy. Generic green beans. I miss good ole 'Runner Beans' so much.

    For your enjoyment . My first and I guess second attempt (reheated) reverse seared rib eye and potatoes (back story on never again..). Served 4 hours after it was ready. No effort was made in the plating or photography. The will was long gone.
