That’s what I had for lunch! :D

Chicken and rice, street cart style from the Smitten Kitchen Every Day cookbook. Very tasty and the recipe made a ton, so I have lunches set for the rest of the week!

Ribeye and rice.

 Nice presentation.  Beautifully cooked steak. What are the two “bookends” to the ribeye?

Thank you! I did a stovetop sear and then moved it to a low oven. The "bookends" are mounds of horseradish-beet.

So, I almost never plate food at dinner for everyone. Its pointless because my son drowns everything in ketchup, and hubby destroys whatever I construct.  But today, I was fooling around with Hollandaise sauce and asparagus, boneless ribeye, and some veggie/rice mix.  My son said it looked kinda fancy.  I was kidding, and I said "yeah, I've been watching Masterchef too much!".  He replied, "well it looks really nice, but my Masterchef says 'I need ketchup'"...=+/

 I am a fan of Kentucky Fried Chicken. I rarely get the opportunity to sample it so I’ve always thought I should give this “secret recipe”  a chance to prove itself.  Nope. Never. Not even close. Boring. I did bake rather than deep fry the chicken but I don’t think that should’ve made much difference in terms of the flavour of the coating. Just saying.

 No amount of batter, bread crumbs or anything else for that matter can change the fact that these are not the 11 herbs and spices used in the Kentucky Fried Chicken that I know.:D

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.

^^ Shain, try Austrian version also. Similar but in a different shape, has scrambled/torn eggs hence the name "Eiernockerln"/dumplings with eggs. This simple meal is a happy childhood memory of most Austrians. (My versions: plain, with beetroots, with crown prince pumpkin)

 That's why I put in those green onions!

But tapas are in the tan/brown/orange palette mostly, aren't they? 

There must be something doable that's green....sprouts perhaps.

I would’ve coped with the orange. xD
