Tonight is some haddock done in the oven with some rice and beans on the side. Healthy and tasty.
Lamburgers, boiled new potatoes and a simple salad with minty light ranch dressing.
Cured ham steaks, mashed potatoes and gravy, peas, macaroni & cheese, all with sweet tea. Ice cream Sundaes for dessert.
Oven fried pork loin chops, potato salad, sweet peas, and iced tea. For desert it was banana pudding.
Some fried potatoes with onions in some oil, fresh produce. Maybe some stewed steak
Fried potatoes onions and cheese 1500 kcal. Potatoes shrink such a lot when fried and loose a lot of water,no wonder we like roast over boiled. Half the size and 3 times the calories!
2 evening meals due to phone problems
Leeks carrots and potatoes with steak and gravy, nice
Heated corned beef with onions, disgusting and salty, but also shrank a great deal.
I make this every so often, it's what we had for dinner this evening. It's sweet and sour stir fry shrimp. For the shrimp I went down to the municipal marina about a mile away where a family has a fish stand supplied by their own couple of bay trawlers, and picked up two pounds of fresh shrimp.
Vein and shell the shrimp, then set them aside in a bowel.
Get hot oil in a wok searing hot and toss in garlic, a strong dose of sriracha sauce (Asian style red chile pepper and garlic sauce), a few small serrano chiles, some currry powder, some Vietnamese five spice, a good dose of Thai fish sauce (fermented, salted, anchovy juice), a good dose of soy sauce, and a bunch of sugar. Stir it all together in the hot oil.
Then toss into the sauce base the shrimp and then stir fry it. It cooks quickly. Then toss in a couple of frozen one pound bags of pre-mixed, pre-cut stir fry vegetables with onions, bell pepper, mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, and water chestnuts.
Stir fry till it's done. Dissolve a couple of teaspoons of corn starch into a bit of water, then stir it into the sauce to thicken it. As soon as the sauce starts to bubble, turn off the heat.
Serve over rice when done.
Or what's not for dinner. Disaster, left the jacket potatoes in for an hour as with a conventional oven, out of 5, 2 where edible probably because I didn't turn them, the one nearest the camera is glowing red. Any idea how long to do jackets for ?
Also these shrunk by alot, I an considering my position on boiled spuds, they seem very bulky
Maybe you can take pre cooked spuds to lower weight
Depends on your fire tbh. Glowing embers and sand are brilliant.
Smash is very useful stuff
Yeah, what Toddy said. Plus it depends on how big the spuds are.
I put em at the edge of a fire with a stone reflector and turn often. Take 2-3 hours. I.e. Eat when ready.
Thanks, I will try again tomorrow. I went for the tinfoil route and fire above and beneath. The jackets where smallish to start off with. A jacket in 30 minutes sounds good to me!
I went out for Mexican with the family tonight. I had enchiladas rancheros and a salad with guacamole. My youngest grandson had a taquito with re-fried beans and rice.
Sounds great - I love Nam Pla as a sauce base - but I think I would go noodles over rice
I'm guessing this serves about four people?
Pat Thai type

last night i had snake- i got it in the chicken coop trying to eat a chick... . my stick was faster! (! we already lost one chick to a snake and the eggs seem to be reserved for them lately....! ) not sure reg. species as i'm not familiar with japanese snakes yet....
boiled it with garlic, soy sauce and some herbs-----> YUMMY!
Just heard a farmer lost 2000 chicks in the heat so count yourself lucky!
Tonight a rib eye steak fried in a pan. Counts as one of my top 5 steaks. And then some potatoes beef and greens.
Last night was another (and more successful) attempt at jackets. Had them with cheese. I once said on here it would be impossible to eat 5kg of parsnips in one day, I actually think it is just possible to do it as I ate 2 kg of potatoes last night, with cheese as well, they reduce down a bit.
