Dinner! 2013 (Part 4)


Recommended Posts

I continue to be amazed and inspired by the dishes that are shared in this topic.

This was a very simple favourite budget dinner tonight. One onion, thinly sliced, one quarter of a small cabbage, shredded and a few morsels of leftover beef. A quick stir-fry and just salt, pepper and a little wok char as seasonings. I am always amazed by the alchemy-like transformation when onions and cabbage are joined!

I will use any bits of leftover protein to round it out and if none are forthcoming then an egg, poached or fried, does the job.

Dan dan noodles. First attempt and the result was very disappointing. Fuschia Dunlop recipe (more or less). Not sure if it was my execution or my expectations that led to the disappointment.

Maybe I could eBay them for this:

Thanks Rotuts. Nice to have cast iron that has been in the family.

Steve, what a beautiful dinner. I might have to try adding dungeness crab to my corn pudding. What a great idea.

Our son Matt, is visiting for a couple of days.

5-spice duck breast served over green beans and scallions (would have been bok choy if only the bag in my crisper had not turned out to be curry leaves).

I am very excited!!! :biggrin: :biggrin: :cool: :cool:

On another food forum with 50,000 members, they sponsored a themed cooking competition, the theme is "Pasta"

I was just informed that I won the first prize with this entry: "Smoked Lobster Carbonara"

I have not found out what is the prize I will be awarded. The label "Freedom" is a required code word to make sure that the dish has been created just for this competition.
