What's for Dinner (Lunch, Elevenses, Second Breakfast, etc.)

A place to come and chat about anything remotely Discworld, or just the weather.

In honour of Anzac day (think a war memorial day equivalent for your country, this one is for Australia and New Zealand) I've just made a batch of Anzac biscuits using the original recipie. I've got one batch in the oven now and at least a biscuit or two of the dough in me (very very very yummy and warm). I'm being good and stepping away so I don't eat the rest before cooking it!

I've also jumped on the sourdough trend- early experiments with soft pretzels are promising (it's a good way to use the starter discard) but I have my first proper loaf of bread rising at the moment. I hope it's rising, anyway!

Last night was a smoked salmon and king prawn salad with my own version of thousand island dressing (I add extra paprika and cayenne pepper for more kick).

Tonight will be slow-cooked lamb shanks, red wine gravy, and roast veg.

It's Penners!!!! :D :D :D Waves frantically. :bounce:

Weird comfort food eating. Yesterday's dinner was shad roe* fried in bacon grease with mashed potatoes. Steamed spinach on the side.

Yum! To all of the above.

Tonight it was the ultimate comfort food - pizza.

I made meatballs and sauce from the recipe IKEA (I assume) released. Not bad, though I need to learn to chop onions finer.
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

Good old Gordon showed me.
But be warned you should start slowly; a good sharp knife close to your finger creates red onions!

Grating the onion works best for mestballs. But it might make you cry.

I don't make meatballs - but I do make stuffing balls. Generally I cut the onions to make them a feature texture of the stuffing but I have used a food processor before. That's really very fine, and you might want goggles as there is so much of the lacrimator released. (I cheated by adding bread after the onions were fine enough, absorbs the juice and helps clean out the processor at the same time.)
