It doesn't have to be fancy, simple dishes can be quite delicious.  Did you hunt Bambi yourself?

For breakfast I made my wife 2 poached eggs which I put at the bottom of the bowl and added some mushrooms and shallots that I cooked with a little bit of bacon. On top of that I put a few mall pieces of thick cut prosciutto and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. I heated up some cream in the same skillet that I made the mushrooms in and then poured that on all of it and some black pepper, fried garlic chips, and black truffle. She literally licked the bowl clean and I was jealous.

Chicken and Waffles.

Chicken and waffles has been on my bucket list for years. Someday, though, someday.

You should when you get the chance. Imo it's better to go to a (good) restaurant than to try and make them yourself for the first time.

For the classic, you put syrup on it and it's not eaten as a sandwich. There's weird variations that do different stuff but going for the original style is best for the first time.

Shepherd's Pie.... Don't worry, no shepherd's were hurt for this recipe.... :)

 

Ingredients

 

1 tbsp sunflower oil

1 large onion, finely chopped

2-3 medium carrots 1 small turnip, cubed

500g pack lamb mince (or beef)

2 tbsp tomato purée

large splash Worcestershire sauce

500ml beef stock

However many potatoes, the diners would normally consume with a dinner.....you could substitute finely grated cauliflower if trying to avoid carbs, but after grating , wrap it in a tea towel and squeeze the water out of it.

Butter and milk to taste.

1 tin of processed peas.

Salt/Pepper/Herbs to taste.

 

Cooking

 

Saute the onions, add meat and brown, theen add peas.

 

Put the cubed carrots and turnip in a pan with a little oil and herbs, salt, pepper to taste, cover and fry>simmer for 10 minutes, add stock, Worcester Saucec and tomato puree, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, then remove lid, add the meat/onion/peas mix well and simmer until it reaches your desired consistency, about 20 minutes.

 

Boil the potatoes until soft, mash the potatoes and add butter and milk, mash further until creamy and of a consistency that will allow you to spread it on top of the meat and vegetables.

 

Add the veg, meat and stock to an oven proof dish, cover with a layer of the mashed potatoes...some people add some grated cheese to decorate the top...

 

Put in a preheated oven 200c/400f for about 30 minutes, or until there is a light delicate golden crisping on top.

 

Bon appetite.

Making cottage cheese enchiladas tonight

 

We've really cut down on how much meat we eat in the past month or so. It's a semi-pescatarian diet with meat no more than a couple of times a month and generally limited to chicken.

That's pretty close to my recipe. I sub pickled jalapenos for fresh ones that I roast and also add some diced onions and use corn tortillas that have been lightly fried. Almost forgot a bit of cheese on the top

 

I use both green and red enchilada sauces but I'm sworn to take those recipes to the grave

Pasta with a mushroom cream sauce.

 

I used the little round pasta, oricchiette or something like that. A did a mushroom medley heavy on crimini which I cooked with a little garlic and butter. I've been using ghee a lot lately. I put some dried mushrooms in water and used that mushroom water whenever I needed more liquid. After the mushrooms cooked down I added cream and just let it simmer while the pasta cooked.Then salt to taste and add drained pasta to sauce.

 

Parmesan cheese to top

I made myself a truly decadent toasted sandwich the other day 

 

  • You spread avocado paste on toast
  • Cover with crispy, streaky bacon
  • Use a  good, blue goats milk cheese and cover bacon. Grate the cheese so its easier to spread 
  • Also add some grated mature cheddar : 18 months or older 

Then place under a hot grill until cheese is melted ...simply yummy   :dancing:

Pan seared salmon with lemon and capers with some rice.

 

Wife wants me to cook it once a week.

We used to make that once a week too, but salmon prices are no joke.

I don't know how close Shady is to Blue Mesa Reservoir but it's stocked with Chinook salmon IIRC. He can go get his own damn salmon and drink beer while doing it!

 

I have GOT to go up to the Rockies and go fishing someday.

Get off my lawn!
