When I have time, I prefer to make a nice home cooked meal. Now you may think I eat like this every night but I don't. Sometimes it's just peanut butter and jam or a quick meal of cereal.
I can't remember if this is salmon or trout. But I simply put some pesto on it, threw it into the oven and served it on some veggies. The veggies are zucchini and carrots stir fried with garlic, salt & pepper with a dash of soy sauce. It's simple and fast.
Roasted chicken thigh with asparagus and onions and carrots. I placed the chicken on the onions and carrots. The chicken simply had salt, pepper and some garlic underneath the skin.
This is zucchini, carrots and shrimp stir fried. I added a sauce that J had used for another dish (fried tofu) when I was over at his place for dinner. I took home the extra sauce. I used the sauce in this dish and it worked very nicely. It was like a sweet soy sauce with shallots and other secret spices.
This is the only thing I know how to bake. It's whole wheat banana walnut muffins. I added a bit of sugar at the top. It was still a bit dry. I'm trying to find the optimum level between a moist muffin and a healthy muffing. I don't want to dump a lot of butter into it.
This was a lamb chop that I got from the farmer's market a couple of weekends ago. I simply marinated it in olive oil, garlic, onions and pepper overnight and panfried it. I boiled the potatoes first until they were soft, crushed them a bit to open it up and roasted it with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper and the onion that I used for marinating the lamb. I added some tomatoes (same size as cherry tomatoes but I think they call these heritage). It was big enough for two meals. But I was hungry and ate it in one seating. I went into a food comatose afterwards.
No more food porn... the well is dry. I have to reload.
