Clive, I just watched a session of Cook’s Country in which they recommended baking salmon “low and slow”. I’ve downloaded the recipe and will give it a try.

on the subject of fish and recipes, I made a fish 'stew' last night using scallops, salmon and flounder. Followed this recipe to a T ex the types of fish. Tasty, easy to make and worth keeping recipe to make again

Today I was craving something different, so I made one of my favorites. Two pieces of multi-grain whole wheat bread, liberally buttered on one side; in a skillet I melted more butter and placed the bread dry side down in the hot butter in the skillet until the dry side had absorbed most of the melted butter and started to brown, turned them over so they'd brown on both sides. When they were ready I put them on a plate and spread a huge amount of peanut butter on one and a huge amount of blackberry preserves on the other and gave them a few moments to cool a bit and then I put them together and made a beautiful buttery pan fried peanut butter and "jelly" sandwich. Sliced it in halves and enjoyed it with a large cup of hot coffee. Amazing! This is one treat I don't give myself more than about once a year.
Hard to believe it's been almost seven years. This was my delightful supper last evening. Home run every time!

I made a huge pot of dal (curried lentil soup) on Saturday, and we ate it with naan and poppadums. And it wasn't half gone, so last night for a change I served it with aloo tikki, which are balls of mashed potato, vegetables, chilli flakes, turmeric, chaat masala and coriander, rolled in flour, then egg white, then breadcrumbs and deep fried. Crunchy and crispy on the outside, soft and spicy in the middle!

I suppose you could describe them as potato croquettes with a strong kick of Indian spices. Even so, they were extra good with a drizzle of tamarind sauce.

Tonight I’m making Indian Coconut Curry Chicken Thighs with Sweet Potatoes and Green Peas. I’ve not made it before, but the recipe looks straightforward enough for my limited culinary skills.

It was good, but the spicing needs to be amped up to suit our taste. The overall flavour is deep and well rounded, but both my wife and I thought it could do with a bit more Garam Masala and Madras curry. It was my first attempt at this recipe. In most cases I find that recipes require a bit more spicing than called for to satisfy our taste. In the case of the Hoppin’ John recipe the good Dr Moss shared with us I’ve increased the amount of bacon and doubled the garlic and Cajun seasoning. I love this trial and error aspect of cooking.

Tonight I’ll be making Turkish Red Lentil Soup/Stew for dinner tomorrow. This is my second attempt at this recipe. As with most soups and stews, I find their flavour deepens and becomes more complex a day or two after they’ve been made.

Yesterday, Monday 3.14 was officially designated as pi day. My wife decides to have some fun with it, so she invited some family and friends over to eat PIE on pi day. It was great, we provided the salad and 3 pies - the other guests brought whatever kind of pie they wished. We had a total of about ten or eleven pies to choose from, yes, there were chicken pot, shepherd's, baked macaroni and cheese, key lime, lemon meringue, chocolate cream, and 3 or 4 others. Everybody had a great time and definitely enjoyed the variety of delicious pie.

Never heard of it. Only works for the American-style of writing the date.

Celebrated worldwide, but maybe some folks have never heard of it.

Bryan, the supper was really a great experience. :D

You have my permission to consider us uninformed foreigners, happily creating occasions for the express purpose of having a fun day of fellowship with the family. :D :D :D
It's all good, brother! 8)
