I did Pot au Feu on Monday and there was enough left for several days.  It is an old French dish which means pot on the fire.  Recipes I have read give several cuts of beef,  but I just used brisket.  Some recipes also add lamb so I added a bit of lamb.  It is cooked slowly in a pot with vegetables and herbs. I got a smallish joint of brisket and a shank of lamb half price in Sainsburies supermarket.  I did it in the slow cooker.  It should have a marrow bone but I couldn't get one.    It is said to be three meals in one.  You have the marrow spread on toast. the meat and vegetables as a meal and the broth as a soup.  I had the latter for supper with French bread for supper today.

I have cubed a bit of the left over meat and frozen it and intend to make a curry with it later. as we are hopping across the channel to France tomorrow for a couple of days to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary on Friday.   On Saturday my younger daughter has booked for about 20 to have a meal at Salt And Light Bistro in Herne Bay, owned by one of our church members as a joint celebration as one of her daughters who was 18 on 9th March..  Our former foster son who lives in Nevada said he would come over but he has not confirmed that.  Another who lives about 30 miles away said he is coming.  Of all the foster children we have had, they are the only two who keep in touch.

Happy 50th, @Invicta! I hope your celebration is wonderful.

We'll be having leftovers of our beef pot roast from last night, with veggies and salad.

Thank you.  We had about 26.  Just about the maximum for Luke's place.  Over half had steak, some had cod and some had vegetarian.  Luke and his staff did a good job considering he only had  a small domestic cooker.  His large catering oven should arrive tomorrow.  

Our granddaughter Jemimah was 18 last week and got engaged to the son of a pastor, who sometimes preaches at our church.. In fact he is due to preach next Lord's day. So his family were also there. 

I did slow cooked beef stew today, with roast celeriac, butternut and parsnip with steamed charlotte potatoes and carrots.  I did multicoloured carrots.  Plain ordinary everyday carrots, yellow carrot and violet carrot all sliced together.  The problem was the violet one leached its colour over everything else like beetroot or red cabbage..  When I grew some like that the colour was only in the skin and they were deep orange inside.

Thanks Alan.  

We had two beautiful daughters and 6 grandchildren. We had a number of foster children but only two we keep in touch with.  Dan in Nevada said he was hoping to come for the celebration, but in the end didn't make it, but Graham the other did.  He came to us when he was 14 and could only read three letter words. He sent us a card saying "Thank you for being the best parents a young man could have."  At the meal a number of grandchildren gave memories which we had long forgotten.  Graham said he came to us as an angry young man and we taught him to read mainly through Asterix books. We had had him for odd days and once for a week to see how we got on, but when we were supposed to have him regularly we were on holiday in France and Social Services flew him out to Dijon airport.  He recalled that.  We met him at Dijon International Airport.  We decided to arrive early so we could make sure we could park.  "Dijon International Airport. " is a bit of an ambitious title.  The reception was about the size of a small railway station waiting room.  The car park was a fraction of the size of that at our railway station.  In August when we were there the airport had only two return flights a week, one to Stansted and one to Marseilles.

Today I had a light supper, French Bread with Camembert  cheese and French smoked garlic sausage,

You certainly all know how to cook a good meal!

Here in sunny, (hot) Aussie land we, (hubby and I) are having for tea, (evening meal) trout - caught by hubby on fishing trip, and chips, which I will make from potatoes. I do like sweet potato chips also.

regards, Marilyn.

Here in England we call our evening meal 'tea' but I used supper on here as that is the title of the thread.             

Tonight I had the same as yesterday.

Hi Invicta,

I wonder why we call it `tea,` when that is a drink, most popular with you Brits, ay? Here in OZ we`re succumbed to `coffee.`

Marilyn.

I drink more coffee than tea.  But we don't like instant coffee,  We only buy pure arabica,  which we buy when we go to France.  It is own brand from Auchan hypermarket (hypermarché)  They do two versions douce which is the milder and degustation with is stronger.  We buy the degustation both for home and for church which we do after the morning service.  One person who has been attending our service recently asked us to get him some as he doesn't usually like coffee but he likes ours.

I understand it was from the past when they high tea and low tea.  They were meals which tea was also served.  Not sure what the difference is.  I did look it up once but have forgotten now.

We met up with a young man whom we've known since birth (in Indiana). He lives here in the state now, and this is the second time we've been able to get together. He lives about 3 hours away, but he's just over an hour away this week doing some training for the job he has lined up when he is mustered out of the army next month.

He came to Sequim, and we met at the Black Bear Diner. Good food. My hubs had pot roast and I had chicken. I pretty much filled up with my salad and onion rings, so hub is munching on my leftover chicken right now.

The food was good and spending some time with Joe was great.

When my wife was on a course in Paris.  Someone offered her some more food, and she declined saying she was full (in French)  Thy reacted with shock telling her she shouldn't say that as it means she is pregnant.

Today I had salmon with baked potato, carrots parsnips and extra fine green beans (they come from Guatemala. a long way to bring them.)

We enjoyed pizza for supper tonight. Papa Murphy's - for those who don't know, it's a take and bake pizza place that has a lot of good combinations. We had the cowboy pizza - double pepperoni, onions, peppers, olives, cheese. Really tasty.

Pickles are nasty! I never liked them. It amazes me that restaurants cannot seem to build a sandwich without pickles. Every time I go for a hamburger I have to specify; NO PICKLES.   :4_2_109v:

And it doesn't work to try to just pick them off of your burger, once they are put on the burger they contaminate the whole thing. You just can't seem to ever get rid of the nasty taste.   :4_14_202:

Happy belated birthday, @Invicta. I hope you had a great day.

We had a hankering for french fries tonight, so we had those with, of course, hamburgers. With...wait for it...PICKLES! :17_heart_eyes::1_grinning:

Thanks LuAnne.  I had a fairly restful day.  Did some cooking.  We didn't go out as Kay has had a really bad back since the Tuesday before last and can barely walk.  Dr said it was muscular and has given her some medication including painkillers,  The first one didn't do much so he prescribed a more powerful one.  That doesn't do much more as far as I can see.

French call hamburgers Steack Haché.  I once heard someone asked how he wanted his Steack Haché. He said "Bleu"  I told my chef friend who said you should not do that as the bacteria form on the outside of beef and when it is grated the bacteria are all through so should cooked thoroughly.  

Today I did Spring Vegetable Clafoutis ( I put the recipe on here recently)  I added grated goats cheese on top. and served with green salad.

I like "black and bleu" burgers, which are simply burgers that are blackened and then slathered with bleu cheese. Delicious! I'm sure it's not the same as what you've referenced, @Invicta.

I hope your wife's back rights up soon. I have back issues too, so I know the agony that can bring!

Bleu in France refers to steak, Blue in English.  The categories of steak are@

Bien fait,  Well done.

a Point  or moyen,    Medium

Saignant, bloody,    Rare  (Shown the pan each side)

 Bleu,               Blue shown the pan a bit less than rare.

Tartare            Raw,  usually minced or ground steak.  I have never had it but seen it served with salad.

We have tatare sauce usually served with fish, but it seems that it was originally served with raw meat or fish.

Today I did steak served with roast potatoes, roast carrot, parsnip, celeriac, and ½ small onion I had left over from something with steamed green beans, sugarsnap peas, and tenderstem brocolli.  (only a small portion of each)

Yum yum, or as the French would say miam miam.  (I found that out recently from the Marmiton recipe web site)

Risotto this evening,

I’ve been wanting to try making risotto, but I’ve never had it so I don’t know what it should taste like. Do you think you could post a recipe for it?

Thanks for the breakdown, @Invicta. I would not like my steak bleu! I prefer bien fait!  Here in the states, we drop the e to form "tartar" sauce, but steak tartare still means raw (ugh!) and minced/ground.

I'll be mixing up a meat loaf in a few minutes. We'll have mashed potatoes and veggies with it, possibly salad.

I will look out for one.  The one I used was not too good.  I used the cheapest long grain rice and it was not really suitable.  For the best risotto you need Italian Arborio rice,  If you  buy a packet it usually has a recipe on the back,  and it will probably be better than some chefs who think they know Italian.

I have just found a packet of Gallo Arborio rice in my cupboard and it does not have a recipe but does give a web site http://www.risogallo.co.uk/category/recipes/quick-recipes/  choose language and search rice and risotto,

I have recently bought a Kindle book  Slow Dough, Real Bread.  I am making a SOUR dough loaf tonight and in the morning.  It does a preferment overnight and finishes off in the morning.  I have tried SOUR dough before but it was not very successful as I forgot to add one of the flours until it was well into the proving and it didn't mix too well then, and my SOUR dough went mouldy soon after and it shouldn't do that.

How did your sourdough turn out? I like sourdough bread - as long as it's not too sour. My mom likes a particular brand that is really tasty.

I made meatloaf Wednesday night, so we had that then and leftovers last night. Tonight it will be something with ground beef, I just don't know what yet.
