I cooked baked salmon flavored with olive oil, a white wine called Saove from Italy in 2014, salt, pepper, and a butter mixture with garlic, oregano and thyme.  Baked with carrot slices, too.

Served it with broccoli, and reheated pasta with a 1/4 cup of water and after swirling in the pan used to melt the butter, garlic, oregano, and thyme mixture.  Served with a glass of the white wine, too.

Wicked yummy, :icon_biggrin: :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

But ... I dropped the glass lid of my oven pan.  Totally a bummer.

Enjoyed turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes with gravy, plus a sausage/potato casserole flavored with bacon and cheese, and a mixture of corn, limas, carrots and onions.  Oh and cranberry sauce.  Desert featured my red raspberry pie recipe.

Fairly yummy and filling! :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

It is!  And I had leftovers reheated in the oven for breakfast. :icon_mrgreen:

But what's a matter? No taste for the veggie mix? :icon_wink:

And this evening ... reheated veggies in a fry pan, and pasta with bay scallops and tomatoes in a olive oil and white wine sauce tossed sauteed with a bit of garlic, oregano, basil, salt and pepper.

By the way, that wine was even better on night two, yum!

One of those bottles that if it sits for a bit, then it blossoms and matures into yumminess. :icon_biggrin:

Going for one of our specialties. Totally Tubuler
7 cups of Rigatoni with a spiced tomato sauce mixed in with 4 (!) types of cheeses and baked till heavenly.
Ricotta, cottage cheese, Parmesan  and mozzarella mixed with spinach.
This dish is unbelievably good.

It sounds good!

I'm doing up arctic char on a bed of almost fresh linguine. Considering making it with garlic and butter, herbs of one kind or another, too.  I'm out of broccoli, maybe peace and carrots instead.

Today for dinner we had a Sunday roast. It was done in the style my in-laws prefer; vegetables boiled to a pulp.  :x

At least the hog was roasted well!  :happy:

My recipe from tonight ...

Cut up a tomato into slices, then a couple of finely chopped garlic gloves. Lightly boiled some peas, while boiling the pasta. Covered the frying pan with olive oil, added garlic, then put fish (this works well with salmon or trout like the char) in with skin side up first, for 30 seconds, to allow garlic flavor to seep in a bit.  Then flipped char to skin side down, flavored with salt, pepper, added teaspoons butter (three on fish, three in olive oil), then peas on top which most will roll into the olive oil and butter, and tomato slices everywhere, cooked for 6 to 7 minutes or so on low to medium heat.

Fish will easily slide from skin, and placed on bed of linguine with peas and tomatoes.  I didn't add herbs this time, but whatever ya got, like basil, thyme, oregano, etc., can be lightly sprinkled in with the salt and pepper.

Went well with Voire Verdejo, Rueda, 2016, white wine from Spain.

@ von zone: I love a Sunday roast! My parents also preferred veggies boiled to pulp so itís not so crazy for me. Havenít had veggies like that since I met my new wife lol. She likes em nutritious.

@GP: that Arctic char sounds fantastic. Havenít had it in 20 years but I still remember how good it was. Sounds like a good recipe and there canít be enough peas 😺
