Steak and Potato night at Fuzzy's!
Ooooh my goodness..... I want all that.... now.
That's what I really like about my George Foreman Grill... Steak in 9 minutes or less... :eat2:
Pity it takes an hour to bake the potato. (And like my skins crisp-ity)
That is a monster sized potato! looks yummy.. i should make baked potatoes sometime..
Sometimes, there is a local farmer's market where I can get big 50lb burlap sacks of idaho russets. Some are a big as a football, and makes me wonder what happens to these size potatoes that are much too big for any one person to eat.
Brand new thread, kids..... let's keep 'em coming!!!
And for nostalgia's sake, the first thread is here:
i always take pics for this thread but don't get around to posting them... so I'm gonna add this one to make sure I get notice when new pics are up yay!
SummerG, that's some amazing still life photography :smitten:
A friend visiting me brought lots of good Italian salami and pecorino cheese, more than i can eat just with bread. So i seared escalopes, topped them with salami, pecorino and tomatoes, plus some rosemary and left them in the oven another 5 mins. Was very pleased with the result.
Latinum BTW is an Italian province (Roma its capital) from where this recipe is coming from.
Tonight I had Chinese takeaway since my groceries didnt arrive (They said they'd tried to deliver but I wasnt here, liars!) . I had sesame prawn toasts - please excuse the rubbish photo, you can hardly see them, there were eight pieces. Then I had chicken noodle soup which tasted better than it looks. Then I was supposed to have beef with green pepper in black bean sauce but it came with red pepper and carrot too, and rather annoyingly lots and lots of tiny pieces of very hot green chili which shouldn't be in that dish! It was all okay, no more than that.
Sometimes we have dessert for dinner. Because we're adults and we can!
A chocolate mousse and a mini chocolate covered cannoli.

boyfriend's carrot cake mousse.
does the meat stay tender?
Ja sa baaa bubbb bbbbubbbubuu..... *drool* (speechless with glee!)
GAH! Your killing me! lol :eat2:
My goodness. That looks incredible!!!!!!!!!!!! I just wanna taste everything!
Randi: I agree- Now Miss T... where is this wonderful pastry shop :eat2:
Well.. I did marinate it...
Here's our grilled chicken dinner, with beans and corn and stuffing with chicken gravy.. shortly before I realized that a broken pipe from the sprinkler system was flooding the basement... but at least we enjoyed a hot meal beforehand. :blink:
Syrian Lentils in a Spicy Tomato Sauce
1 cup dried red or brown lentils, rinsed
4 cups water
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (28oz) can peeled tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a medium saucepan, combine the lentils and water. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the lentils are tender but still retain their shape, about 30 minutes. Do not drain.
In another saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and saute until the onions are golden. Add the lentils and cooking liquid.
Run a knife throught the can of tomatoes to chop and add without draining, to the lentils along with the tomato paste. Add the cumin, allspice, coriander, and paprika. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
