What are you cooking/eating today?

We have breakfast and lunch and "give me your dish" threads, I know, but this parallels the other "today/now" threads and isn't recipe-oriented.

I had odds and ends of leftover fruit, so decided to toss them together into mini cobbler tart type things in the ramekins I usually use for creme brulee. Apples, blackberries, raspberries, and these pears I'm not crazy about -- great taste, but that pear texture I've never liked much. A little sugar, because the berries have dried out slightly, and a little sour milk because ... I don't know why. The cat actually gave me a look like "what're you doing?" and I had to be all "back off, man, I'm a scientist." We'll see how it goes.

Eating a slice of cheddar and a slice of the apple. I never seem to be able to write while the laundry's in, so I'm cooking instead.

I am making rigatoni with leftover/spare lasagne sauce later. Matt and I spent last night singing Auberg(in)e by Chris Rea as we cooked it. Oh the larks.

Highlights of weekend eating: POPOVERS! (I take back everything I sneered about American cheese etc, because clearly you invent the BEST food ever!) And torte caprese which is the most ridiculously artery-clogging cake. It doesn't even have flour in it, just chocolate and almonds and gallons of eggs and sugar. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

Archel (Archel), Monday, 1 September 2003 15:48 (11 years ago) Permalink

I always thought popovers were British! (Because they're so associated with New England cooking in my mind, which seems to have taken the most boring and stodgy of English cooking hundreds of years ago and dressed it up with molasses, lobster, and the worst of Irish cooking. New England cooking, that is ... not my mind.) But James Beard says I'm wrong, so get in.

introduce it to olive oil, garlic, and shallots in a sizzling pan.

when they are properly acquainted they will come into intimate contact with...

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper will drizzle from on high,

I had a crapload of basil around yesterday, so I made pesto -- kind of. Macadamias instead of pine nuts, and I used the food processor; so sue me. (I'm normally a pesto rockist.) It's very, very, very, very green. And I've put some on pasta for the girlfriend just now, and it's really pretty good. And very, very, very, very green.

The bananas I bought are already getting black spots on them so I should probably go eat one of them.

Cooked nothing today.

Started the day with a little biscuit left over from yesterday morning and some water.

Spent most of the day at the hospital, so I had a hospital-grade hamburger, fries, more water, and a candy bar from the vending machine.

Went for a couple of hours to a cousin's 20th birthday party, but took along some grape-flavored Hawaiian shaved ice with me because I wasn't feeling up to eating anything heavy, e.g. the barbecue they were going to fix.

Am currently debating whether or not to fix anything to eat now; wish I had some popcorn, though.

Am looking forward to eating leftover homemade lasagna for dinner tomorrow, though. Yay!

Haven't eaten for about 5 days (experimenting on myself as part of my process of going on the caloric restriction diet full time but whatever) but I drank about 6 L. of thick green tea and 1 L. of red wine.

Lately I've had to economise, and this means back to cooking lots of my own meals that'll carry over for lunch as well.

This week's was a flan/quiche thing, filled with onion, roast capsicum, mushroom and brocoli. Makes 4 large slices, plenty for lunch and dinner, with some rice.

I just ate a sausage roll with my last bit of the flan. I feel a wee bit ill now.

I can't decide what to make for dinner, but I'm thinking some kind of stew or stroganoff or something I can make with the steak and veg I have.

baby octopus is $2/lb right now in chinatown. i boiled a pound and a half in salted water for 20 minutes, then threw them into a pot of leftover claret and simmered for a further 20 minutes until the wine had reduced. i cooked cannellini beans and spinach with carmelized garlic and balsamic vinegar while waiting for the octopus to tenderize, and now i'm having all of it mixed up together in a warm salad. DELICIOUS.

mark, if you cook chorizo a lot less than you would think (ie only a few golden/black bits) then it's way more tender. Assuming you're using the softer cooking chorizo that is. If yr using the hard stuff then you'll always get the hard bits even in the best.
