What are you eating tonight?

#1
ok guys we already have the what are you drinking tonight thread going so I thought I would add this.
Doesn't have to be fancy and made from scratch, could just be a frozen pizza. Any and all is fine.

Talking of pizza, I have just finished a stuffed crust pepperoni pizza and a garlic baguette, swished down with a glass of wine. Again, it is nothing fancy but it filled a massive and empty stomach. I am now happy and content :)

Last night I made jerk chicken wraps with char grilled veggies, to enjoy eating outside in the last of the sun. A good bottle of rich red wine and a Romeo y Julieta cigar finished the evening nicely.

Tonight I've defrosted some of the chilli that I made last week, and am baking some bread to make fresh garlic bread. I'll do garlic and herb mushrooms as a starter and finish with tiramisu. My mouth's watering as I type this!

@Northern Saint - real, actual mutton? I keep saying I'll try cooking mutton one day. Lamb's my favourite meat. Maybe I'll have a chat with the butcher next week...

Had a packet of Cheese & Onion Tayto crisps at lunch with some bread + butter. I bought a multipack back from the homeland. Love how the crisp brand seems to have been created to suit the Irish accent.

As for dinner... waiting for the Indian takeaway to arrive. Murghi Massala - The biggest chicken breast I've ever seen, stuffed with minced lamb. Good news.

I saw FoxyRick mentioned garlic bread. My other half makes her own but she uses about 3 cloves of garlic mixed with butter for one small baguette. It's incredible but so damn garlicy that it's actually spicy hot. Fortunately we both eat it so we can get away with it ;)

Yes real Mutton. i love lamb, especially in a curry. We have a great local butcher, he makes his own sausages and nearly everything is local. He knows us now and he's a really nice bloke.

I went in a few weeks ago and he had whole legs of lamb for £15. We had one and I boned and diced it and made a hairy biker curry. It was so nice I went back for another and he had none left. I was saying how I made a great curry and he said hold on I've just the thing and came back with a boned mutton leg. I was pleased as I have wanted to try mutton in a curry for a while and snapped it up. It was £17.90 which he rounded down and once trimmed it weighed on 2.5 kilos. It was just as tender as the Lamb

Greetings

I have in the oven as I type a Caribbean casserole with Pork a scotch bonnet Chile, allspice, pineapple, sweet potatoes, thyme etc.

Nearly had to abandon the kitchen when sealing the pork that had been marinated in the scotch bonnet, soy sauce etc. It's a little while since I have experienced being 'gassed' in the kitchen! I only stopped coughing a short while ago. Bells whiskey and Soda seems to stop the burn in ones throat!

Enjoy your dinner
Regards
Dick.

If you've got a chest freezer it's well worth searching out a sheep farmer. There's a few in South Devon so there must be a few in the North too.

Depending on the time of year you get spring lamb or a hogget (which is mutton-ish). It works out at fantastic value for money for all the different cuts\chops you get.

Tonight was a very much abused and bastardised Spaghetti Bolognese with half a dozen (leftover)Scottish pork sausages chopped up and thrown in. Served with some garlic bread, fresh salad leafs and new potatoes. Swilled down with a glass of red. Time for a quick snooze before a shower and shave while the wife is watching shite on the telly

Sadly no chest freezer, but I do have a friend who has a farm. The farm next to him has sheep and he helps during lambing. I also know someone who works at the Big Sheep, but I doubt eating the exhibits is good form.
