    What did you have for dinner tonight?

    Post by Jan1 on Tue Sep 02 2014, 21:05


    Our low carb dinner this evening was, cooked in a bag, salmon with a mozzarella cheese, sun dried tomato and pesto garnish. This wonderful combination was put together by the fishmongers at our local Asda store.

    To accompany the dish I just roasted some red, yellow and green peppers, courgettes, tomatoes, a lttle bit of onion I had left over from an earlier meal. Plus a swede cooked and mashed with lots of lovely butter. Eddie reckons carb content less than 20 .....a lovely tasting main meal of the day.

    What was your main meal of the day .....photo optional sunny

    No wine ! is it posible to eat dinner without wine ? That lot was swilled down with a £4 a bottle Pino Grigio from ASDA, nectar reduced from £6.25. Sometimes we can get food in the fridge. A man must know his priorities. lol!

    Hi Scandi .....your dinner sounded lovely and I had to go and check out your recipe for Chocolate Mug Cake or Individual chocolate pudding.  Smile

    I've copied it from Scandi's recipe in the food and recipe section if any (including me) may wish to give it a whirl in the microwave.

    Recipe makes 2

    50g butter, melted in the microwave
    3tbsp ground almonds
    1 1/5 tbsp sweetner
    1/4 tsp vanilla
    Pinch of salt
    1 egg
    1 tbsp cocoa powder
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    2 squares 70% dark flavoured with orange chocolate
    Or
    1 square 90% chocolate, chopped
    2 tbsp pecans

    Melt the butter in a bowl, add remaining ingredients and divide into 2 mugs and nuke for 1 minute per mug.

    Sounds perfect doesn't it ?

    All the best Jan

    I can't compete with your culinary delights good people as I only had fried ground beef with onions and garlic, home made coleslaw (make my own dressing with sour cream and mustard) and broccoli and cauliflower. I eat simply and well.

    Broccoli and cauliflower .....two of my most favourite vegetables.

    Tonight we have an easy to prepare and cook chicken casserole.

    Some skin on chicken thighs placed in a casserole dish with chopped up mushrooms and onions add some seasoning and mixed herbs. Cover with stock and cook at 180 for about 1 hour, covered - I then cook for about another 30 minutes uncovered. Check food is cooked through and serve with vegetables of your choice.

    A nice mid week dish ......glass of wine optional sunny

    Thanks. I find that just doing about 15-20 minutes on exercise bike about an hour after eating really helps shift the levels back down.
    I love chilli as it's even better reheated the next day - got some Romano peppers so will stuff me one with chilli and then top with feta cheese. Better than Mr Ethyl's stuffed wraps any day.

    So many people underestimate the value of exercise. As you say, 20mins can make a nice difference :-)

    Those Romano Peppers sound wonderful.

    Many years ago a friend of mine (now living in Australia) invited a group of us round for a meal. She'd prepared this wonderful tasting chilli, We must have been about 18 or 19, and girls together putting the world to right eating chilli served with a green salad and a few glasses of rose wine. That evening always stays in my mind it was a happy evening, lots of girlie talk .......and probably a few too many glasses of wine Smile

    Hey Ethyl - I bought some massive mushrooms today and thought of you!

    Tonight I had last night's leftovers - Quorn Swedish balls in ratatouille (tomatoes, peppers, courgettes, mushrooms, herbs) but tonight I added Cajun seasoning and pickled jalapeños. Covered in grated cheese, of course.

    Last night it was roast beef with lots of veggies (8 different ones) and gravy. Gravy is a necessity for me! The family had roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings too. For dessert I had raspberries and cream.

    Tonight it will be cottage pie made with cauli mash for me and made with mashed potato for hubby. Berries and cream for me for dessert and ice-cream for him.
