As a matter of fact, I'm going to try that next time I make a roast, beer added slowly to bring up the broth.

I became worried when you weren't at Hootoo for a while, 2Legs. Some others have reported problems logging in, and I hoped you weren't having similar problems.

It's chili again for tonight's supper. For lunch, I'm making chicken picadillo. I'm using ground chicken because I can't chew or bite off anything tough for the next three weeks. I had a lot of dental work done yesterday -- drilling for four crowns $$$$ -- and have temporary caps until the permanent ones arrive.

A very inspiring thread. smiley - smiley

Not only does it hurt when dental work is done - it hurts the economy for months on end...smiley - erm

Tonight it is ducks legs and vegetables in the oven - accompanied with a salad of what we have got.

Simple and easy - thin cut pork chops, carrots, celery, onions, mushrooms, red and green bell peppers, all chopped and having fun in a wok. With a side dish of wild rice.

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

paul; yeh, I did have some trubble logging in, in December earlyish, and was for a while not able to log in from err, whichever way round it was, either the laptop or the PC, so was only on rarely depending what machine I was using; then I was out of the ocuntry from the 23rd Dec until 11 january, and was a bit busy just before that with hospital, and since have had one planned for standard op I was expecting, adn also kinda been busy with things smiley - puff

Last night s supper was oven roast tunnasteak with a ton of pepper and olive oil on it, with a wild rice pilaf of cumin seed, wild rice, buttons mushrooms, garlic and onions - was calling out for some fresh herbs thrown on the top but we'd eaten all them smiley - laugh

Tonight's supper is probably a risotto, probably chicken with some seriously strong tsaty tasty cooked spiced sausage lurking in the fridge that has to be used up soon , with the useual onions and garlic and mushrooms and stuff plus grated whatever cheeses are lucking about, and aborio rice and stock etc... Asides anything its wet out and I doubt we'll be bothered to go raid the shops for anything more inspired to cook this evening smiley - zen

The tuna steak sounds delicious, I haven't had one (or shark) in ages. But I will never appreciate the taste of massive amounts of black pepper or peppercorns. I find my taste buds simply shut down and it is then all a sameness ... A little lift and zing is great, but too much is just too much. smiley - doh

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

well, a lot for me smiley - laugh I do rather like black pepper... judging by how much we get through smiley - blush my tastebuds are weird thesedays though, somtimes I want so delicate flavours and tastes and scents I'd not have been able to sense, a year or so ago, yet at other times, too much spice just doesn't exist smiley - laugh

They were actually frozen tunnasteaks, seeing as how we don't have a proper fishmongers in this poxy so called town/city, but, actually cooked straight from frozen, they're as good as fresh IMO smiley - zen (just plain tunasteaks, not messed about with stuff added ones like) smiley - zen - the wild alascan salmon I get is frozen too, and better than anything I cna get fresh nearby smiley - weird

I think I am a little biased, or prejudiced about salmon. I have lived and worked in several places along the east coast of Canada, and find our Atlantic salmon far nicer in taste and texture than Pacific (which would include Alaskan). Milder, flakier and much less intense oils.

Still, I have yet to meet any sea critter that I didn't like if nicely treated and served up. smiley - drool

Let me amend that last statement - there are some mollusks that I don't have much taste for ...

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

Don't think I've had Atlantic! - I love salmon, but hate the farmed variety; which is so dirt cheap and just everywehre now, in the UK; to the point where its often tricky to find any that isn't the horrid farmed pale rubbish smiley - yuksmiley - zen

well, dinner worked very well, finished off the last 'chunk' of choreithro (sp?) sausage, which had been lruking for ages, diced small, fried in butter, then a load of very finely diced onion, followed by mushrooms thence garlic, and of course black pepper smiley - biggrin some rosemary as well, then the aborio rice... and some more butter... then stock and simmered for as long as was best, about 50 minutes today, which gave me plenty of time to give th ekitchen a full clean, and do all the washing up smiley - zen had it all cooking away by the time W woke from a nap smiley - divasmiley - zen no idea what we're having over the weekend though, tomorrow must porbably require some grocery shopping I think smiley - zen

I understand that kebobs and curry have become British national dishes now. So to behave in a similar fashion, supper was:

English style fish'n'chips, from a small "Canadian Foods" family restaurant, operated by a family of lovely Greek folks. smiley - biggrin

International fish 'n chips. smiley - smiley

2legs, I read about your cooking with interest. I'm married to an Italian, and in Italy food is very simple. Not to many items mixed together. I love my father-in-law's polenta with squid ragout. At his 80th birthday we had fish and shellfish of many kinds. It was a bit crossing-the-border to eat small cooked crabs - shell and all.

When the owner-lady asked after my bride, I mentioned she was coming home early with a very unhappy throat. The lady dug into her purse and gave me two lozenges "from home" that she insisted would help. That little pocket of Ouzo in each certainly did not hurt. smiley - biggrin

Excuse me, but are you really a researcher? Or are you someone selling a product, someone that slipped through the anti-Spam filter?

Rev Nick - dead man walking (mostly)

Probably just a something "bot" that slipped through. We used to have over-zealous folks, now a bit short of hands perhaps.

It's only the 3rd day of another 7-day week-end for me. But the 3rd of 6 working days for my bride. So I roasted a 6+ pound chicken, slow and gentle with some BBQ sauce as she went. And some lightly oiled and seasoned potatoes chopped and roasted. The sort of stuff that can be eaten as and when time happens. Supper? Work-day lunch? All good. smiley - biggrin
