Poached salmon filets, skin side down, in an easy 50% reduction poaching fluid for 7 minutes made from: 1:2 dry white Vermouth and water, sliced onion and lemon rings, capers, black pepper corns, and dill, that had been simmered for 10' and reduced before adding the salmon; steamed white rice; asparagus boiled in the leftover above poaching liquid, a big glass of Joel Gott 2021 Chardonnay. 30 minutes total. It was elegant, but partner and I scarfed it down in 15 minutes. Despite that we're stuffed, would kill for a slice of berry pie and real coffee. Instead, we're sipping on instant decaf coffee with Bailey's and some microwaved Fig Newtons from the back of the freezer, which expired last year.

Thanks to another thread, going to have Kraft Mac N' Cheese, with chopped celery, onion, and a cup of frozen peas added to the boiling water a few minutes before draining. Then, after reheating and mixing in the milk, butter and packet of fluorescent orange 'cheeze' powder, I'll add a can of tuna and maybe some shredded (real) cheese. Hope it's edible.

I just tried something which I thought was not going to work out but it turned out amazing. I put a few tablespoons of olive oil in a pan along with a laurel leaf, some oregano, alot of italian chili flakes, some pepper, sliced garlic and I left it in a very low flame until it simmered...I never let it simmer too long and removed the pan from the fire for a minute every once in a while to prevent the oil or the ingredients from burning...finally after a few minutes I added morsel sized pieces of chicken breast I had doused in some cornstarch and some chopped green onions...once the chicken was done I turned off the fire and added cooked spaghetti and some soy sauce. Finally I plated it up, adding a few drops of fish sauce, a squeeze of lemon juice and some more green onions. Turned out a million times better than I thought.....super good, though the noodles were even better at room temperature. The squirt of lemon juice is key.
Anyway, I had that...a sort of italian/asian fusion noodle/spaghetti thing. Highly recomend.

I thought the carrots were delicious, Greg. Our guest was too much of a clod to say so. This was a belated St Patrick's Day celebration and my partner said something like, "We'll have to do this every year." I thought, "not if you bring this cow." She was sprung on me at the last minute.

Crispy Chilli Beef with plain rice. I didn't have the time or the motivation for the egg fried rice she mentions although I've made it in the past and it's good. I like this British woman, her recipes are good and not complicated.

r68, did you actually make your own Moussaka? Seems like a pain in the ass. Even my Greek mom wouldn't make it, but would get it from a deli or order it at restaurants. Every Fall I go to the Greek Food Festival at the local Orthodox church and bring a bunch home for the freezer and brave the old distant relatives who complain they never see me in Church and why am I still not married with children (I'm 61).

Yes, R74 - I actually made it. I used the broiler to make the eggplant, convection oven for the potatoes, and the stovetop for the meat sauce and bechamel. None of it is especially difficult but it is time-consuming. I did watch Cushing's video also used some of the recipe linked below. I went with my gut for a lot of it because I wasn't happy with going with just one recipe. I looked at several and took what I wanted from them.
