Thread: Dinner tonight

    Default Dinner tonight

    Carin's birthday was yesterday, so tonight's dinner is made up of her
    favorite foods: corned beef and cabbage for dinner (with potatoes, of
    course) and tiramisu for dessert. I know they don't go together, but
    those are her favorite things, so that's what I made. I used this
    tiramisu recipe, but with marsala (rum in tiramisu? is that even done?):
    http://www.cookingforengineers.com/r...imple-Tiramisu

    I also made something weird for myself for dessert (I hate tiramisu). A
    friend said they like raspberry jello with sour cream in it, and for
    some reason, that sounded good. I also added canned crushed pineapple.
    Total white-trash food. I'll let you know how it is, and take pics if I
    think of it.

    What are you having?

    Chicken and romaine spring rolls with a light dressing of a mix of
    Balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, oyster sauce and yellow mustard. :-d

    What you made sounds really good!

    Sounds odd but good. I may have to try it.

    Balsamic vinegar really does work well with the soy and oyster sauce.
    :-) I added the mustard to thicken it a bit. I mixed it all up in a
    small squeeze bottle.

    My SIL makes a really good tiramisu... it's from Bon Appetite a
    bazillion years ago. She has altered it, but it's still great. I
    don't like tiramisu at a restaurant either.

    I had corned beef hash.... no dessert.

    If you like your jello dessert, I will give you a jello dessert from
    the '50s called Eisenhower Salad. It's really good for a jello salad.

    i took the 2 dogs i'm dog sitting to the small park here in the old
    folks mobile home park late this morning. they are very active & i
    tripped over them and I believe i must have re-injured the broken bone
    in my right foot (Jones fracture). i spent the rest of the day on the
    couch & finally went out & got a burger combo at a favorite place down
    the road. When I placed my order for my usual kid's meal, the server
    (at the drive thru) said the bigger combo would be a bit less. So, I
    had a huge burger, no cheese with extra onions, fresh fries (no salt)
    and a 20 oz coke for way under $5.00.

    harriet & all of the critters (faddy tabby catty, ms tabby ann, lady,
    the puggle & pepper the yorkie)

    My standard drive-through order is trashy two-for-a-dollar tacos. I
    mostly can't stand fast-food burgers, but then I'm not much of a burger
    person to begin with.

    I think it's fun, too. I'm not a visual thinker, so his diagrammed
    recipe cards don't really work for me, but I love the site, anyway.

    Someone who takes pictures of their utensils drawers...I can
    understand why you like those greasy tacos.

    I love crisp fried tacos, just love 'em. And they're kinda my iconic
    junk food from back before I became a vegetarian (in 1983), so I think
    they're also nostalgia-comfort-food.

    I actually never did get around to taking pics of my utensil drawers (I
    have more than one!) but I do like those damned greasy JITB tacos. I
    use the sauce packets that come with them too, so nyeah! <g>

    My favorite take out tacos tho' are Taco Bell plain crispy tacos with
    the mild sauce packets, but they are more expensive.

    Then there are these:

    <http://picasaweb.google.com/OMPOmelet/BarbacoaTacos#>

    :-)

    Bit more time consuming on the prep' time tho'...

    Hate it. I have literally never had a single thing there that I like.
    And I live in California, so I've got no excuse for eating tacos I don't
    like. :-) (The Taco Bells here use those dry ortega taco shells, for
    heaven's sake! If I want a crispy taco, I want it freshly fried,
    thenkyewver'much!)

    My cohabitating dining partner and I are taking dinner over to
    a family member tonight.
    We are planning:

    Steamed mussels (staight from Tomales bay... they are really
    hairy-looking).

    Cous-cous with garbanzo beans, tofu, carrots, and green garlic,
    served with harissa.

    I've run out of preserved lemon for the cous-cous, so we'll have
    get by with just Meyer lemon juice.
