Whats for Supper...

Recommended Posts

Randy's been off his eating program for the holidays. He is slowly getting back on. He's off sweets this week, and next week we'll go full tilt into no grains. So tonight I made meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and broccoli.

We are into our Northern California rainy season and true to form it has been and is still raining. But.....I have some Bratwurst Sausages that I really like, so in spite of the rain I grilled them outside while dodging raindrops. These sausages are wonderful, they are not just plain Bratwurst, but they also contain cheese and bacon. Just grill to a dark golden brown and serve on an Artisan French Roll. Quick, easy and delicious. Tomorrow will be my own "Yummy Pork Chop" recipe.

Invicta, if this meal only takes ten minutes I suspect strongly that you like your bacon not too crisp. I thought of that because I do not like bacon that is what I consider under done. I like it very crisp, which brings out and enhances the flavor. Although I must admit that most folks would not like it as crisp as I do. I cook it on very low heat or a very long time which accomplishes two things. The first is that it doesn't splatter all over the stove and everything near it. The second is that the bacon doesn't shrivel up to nothing.

I never fry  bacon, just pop it in the microwave an a plate covered with a sheet of kitchen tissue, and it crisps up in a few minutes.  You have to be careful not to overdo it.  There is so much water in modern bacon that it boils rather than fries, unless you spend a lot more for dry cured. You can't often find that in the stores though.  For my omelette I use smoked lardons, small pieces of bacon.

I made Big Mac salad this afternoon. It's a good salad for someone who is watching their carbs. While we have not gone full blown back onto the low carb eating yet (tomorrow...), this was a good lunch. Both my husband and son liked it, as did I. My mom doesn't care for yellow mustard, which is in the sauce recipe. We will be having it again, and probably often (I will probably omit the mustard in my mom's sauce, or replace it with spicy brown).

Mustard is yellow.  Or at least has yellow colouring in. We have a brown mustard that they call French mustard but I have never seen anything like it in France.  I always by my mustard in France, you can get it  forte, strong or douce, mild, but they are all yellow. 

Today my son in law did chichen korma and rice for lunch, but it seemed to have much  more vegetables that chicken. As we had a large lunch Kay and I only had a snack for supper.

Yes, I know mustard is yellow in color. But we differentiate in our house (and many recipes do, as well), by referring to regular mustard as yellow. Because then there is the spicy brown, which, while yellowish, is closer to brown. Then there is deli mustard, which is even more brown. All in our refrigerator, so all get a different name, yellow being my favorite, deli my mom's, and spicy brown my hubs'.

I've never tried korma, but the lady whose Big Mac salad recipe we used has a recipe for it I may try. We don't eat Indian foods, so it will be a different thing for us.

Korma is very mild. It has a lot of coconut milk in it.  It is not my favourite, I prefer something a it more spicy.  I don't know of any Indian restaurants in our town, but we have at least two Nepalese restaurants. We have a lot of Nepalese in our town as mostly retired Ghurkas.

I did omelette again today, but with smoked salmon and tomato.

Well, we've got our winter now. It snowed a bit last night - woke up to about 3 inches or so. At noon it began snowing again, and, while it's tapered off, it hasn't let up. According to the weather app, it is supposed to snow til 5 am. A bit of rain is supposedly mixed in with the snow right now. While I don't love snow, I don't hate it, either...although after Randy's slip and fall just over a year ago, I get kind of panicky thinking about him being out in this.

He made it to work with no problems today, but called off for tomorrow. Our van is in the shop, so he's been using my mom's little car. The van is fixed now - fuel pump replaced - but the weather didn't permit us to pick it up. So hopefully we'll be able to get it Friday. Heh - we need it for Sunday, to pick up the girls, especially if the two little boys come with them.

Anyway...with the snow and cold, chili sounded tasty for tonight. So that's what I made, and we all enjoyed it.

We have had much higher temperatures this winter.  Heavy rain almost every day  high winds for the last few days. 

I had Thai style king prawn and lemon grass fish cakes with chips and peas for lunch  and egg salad for supper.
