Last night DH & I  were fortunate enough to go out to a dinner party. We ate hors d'oeuvres, including delicious homemade hommous and storebought fine cheeses and crackers; our hostess served us pork belly with perfect crackling, nuggety golden roasted potatoes, and coleslaw; and a homebaked chocolate dessert. This was all washed down with an array of wines which included a 20-year old Hunter Valley semillon, 15-year old Barossa Shiraz, ice wine from Central Otago, etc. Wow.

Contrast this with the previous night. On top of my usual half-day at the day (office) job, I had put in 7 hours in my casual hospitality job. At 9pm I had my dinner in a 15 minute break. It was: 1) a packet of potato crisps; and 2) an apple.

Swings and roundabouts.

@Chippewa, yes, doesn't it ever!

The thing is, it is our turn to reciprocate, next up: I may have to trawl back through this very thread for menu suggestions ...

Tonight we had salad from the garden topped with smoked chicken.  Last summer we impulse-bought an electric smoker that was on clearance at the feed store.  Love the thing because it's set it and forget it, cheaper to run than charcoal or propane, and keeps the heat of cooking out of the house this time of year.  I've put back some dead fig branches to experiment with as a smoking wood.

Momofuku's pickled shiitakes. More or less this recipe:

http://www.goodfood.com.au/recipes/momofukus-pickled-shiitakes-recipe-20161118-gss6ve

...except, like the Momofuku people themselves, I cooked the dried mushrooms longer to make broth for another recipe, then sliced and pickled the mushrooms.

Spaghetti (dried) bolognese (from the freezer), with loads of parmesan and some garlic bread.

Easy work-night dinner.

I'm waiting for the butcher shop to fill my frozen meat order, so until then it's vegetarian food! Tonight we had eggplant and red pepper pasta tossed in a bok choy pesto (have way too much bok choy from the garden) and a side salad tossed with balsamic and olive oil. Simple food is the best.

Last night we had home-made pizza made from scratch.

Actual point of this post: our pizza came out more like flatbread. Any pizza aficionados here? How do you make your pizza taste softer? Was the gluten just underworked/overdone??

Nachos.  Not fancy meat and pico nachos.  My childhood nachos; cheap tortilla chips on a plate, covered in cheese (sharp cheddar... I'm not a complete heathen) and microwaved.  Totally hitting the spot.

Sadly, just like... a handful of corn chips and a piece of dark chocolate. Trying to hold of for DH to get home for *real* dinner.

My latest food of interest is a whole super-ripe/mushy mango.

This is how I eat it:
- cut off a little bit of skin at the top
- use a spoon to scoop out the soft, sweet innards (working my way around the huge seed)

Yum!

Spicy ramen noodles with a spoonful of chunky PB stirred in to make "peanut sauce." Yes, I'm classy like that.

Omelette of two homegrown eggs (both double-yolkers!) stuffed with homegrown cherry tomatoes and red chiles, and storebought avocado and chicken-apple sausage (markdowns I stocked up on) and topped with homemade fermented hotsauce.  Homegrown honeydew melon and storebought steamed broccoli on the side.  On days off, we eat a big "brunch" that holds us until dinner.

Tonight we'll be eating smoked lamb ribs, braised collards, fingerling potato/green bean salad, and fried green tomatoes.

Eating like kings this time of year!

*Drool* horsepoor!

I made a two pans of banana french toast casserole this morning. One I baked today and the leftovers will last the week and the other I stashed in the freezer for later. (baby is due in 3 weeks (possibly sooner) and I want food ready)

Roast spaghetti squash, ricotta, roast chicken, half an avocado and a mysterious Middle Eastern spice blend/rice topper I bought at a charity market from people who didn't speak English well.  It is green and has pistachios and maybe dehydrated onions?

Very yummy and I appreciate my past self doing all that cooking and buying the avocado long enough ago that it was perfectly ripe today.

An utterly fabulous homemade black bean chili with green olives. For some reason, I have no competition for this foodstuff.
