Singapore style chicken curry with steamed rice and prawn crackers. Lovely coconut Asia style with a hint of Indian spices from the colonial influences
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

Roast with the most incredible gravy, baked potatoes, baked coliflower, Yorkshire puddings, asperigus, pumpkin pie and coffees.
Good way to end the year.

Roast dinner around parents with family. Rib of beef, roast potatoes and parsnips, greens, carrots, peas, sprouts and broccoli with a very fine gravy with lemon cheesecake to finish. Followed by a board game round the table. Happy 2018

New lady friend cooked steak tips, broccoli, and red potatoes.  Wicked yummy!

More for the Count's Tavern?

Frozen cod was yucky.  Spinach seemed old and bland.  Couscous left over form last night was not doing the trick.

So ...

Lady friend and made some homemade soup for the week, and we threw out the blah dinner menu, and went for the soup.  OMG!  It was to die for and then some.  Supercalifragilistic! Cahcoo! :eusa_clap: :::cheers:::

I told her I was going to brag about it here.  She said that was so nice. :icon_cool: :icon_biggrin:

Thanks! I wasn’t for 14 years while my son grew up. Met her 7 years ago now and finally she sees the good this hobby has done me lol.
She was also responsible for keeping me alive for 10 minutes with cpr while I was dead with heart failure. Then the paramedics took over and shot me 5 times to get things going again.  She had the legit chance to get rid of me but turned it down. 4 months later I started the hobby room and the rest is history. 😺

I hope to take a trip to Canada some day and visit.  And maybe Gankom, too.

Turkey tenderloin with peach basil cream sauce on a bed of linguine, served with edamame salad, potato salad with dill and egg, along with Lobetia Chardonnay 2016.  Yum! :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::

Tonight ... lamb stew ... and not the slow cook kind ... nice and quick.

Lamb cooked in olive oil salt and pepper taken out before cooking the carrots and potatoes in more oil, water, flour, red wine, more salt and pepper, then lamb thrown back in with tarragon too.

Chowed on with some more of the red wine ... Alpatago 2015, Pinot Noir, Patagonia, Argentina.

Amazing. :icon_cool:

Fresh linguine and herbs, marinara sauce, sausage and ground beef.

Decided to skip veggies.  Mom wouldn't be thrilled with that, but it's rarely skipped.

Also ... La Fiera Primitivo 2015, Salento Italy, ... I'm 2nd half of the bottle, surprised it seemed good enough to drink fayer opening it 2 days ago.

Made a Beef Provencale recipe last night and served with green beans.  Decided to use thyme and tarragon, instead of parsley.  Freaking awesome.

Also had Tower 15 Winery's "The Swell", 2016.  It is a combination of 33% Merlot, 27% Petit Verdot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 13% Cabernet Franc.  A very good pairing with the meal. :icon_cool:

I need to learn how to make french fries, but I think my burgers are at least decent. If you like grilling I have to say small gas grills really make it easy.
