Am in England until Christmas so making the most of it we will have sausage plait tonight. I bought a Delia cookbook today purely because it had a sausagemeat recipe in it and it's the thing I miss the most when in Sweden!

Last night we had turkey and gravy over mashed potatoes. Yum yum. Not sure about tonight.

Have just been informed I'm eating alone as all three children have other plans. They're 6/9/14 fgs! Looks like sausageplait will be tomorrow instead. I shall console myself with X factor, whisky and fish and chips.

Happy birthday to Mrs. Fox and, yes to Rick, we have lots of turkey left over. 18 pounder, home raised and go-o-o-o-d. However, the weather is so nice here that I may take a break from the turkey and grill out tonight. 40 F ( 4.4444 C) and sunny. Lots better than last year at this time.

We had my home made spicy veggie soup today quick and easy as I made loads lsr week, so just need reheating from the freezer. Wondering what to have for Sunday when son, partner and barnbarn come around. My son is able to eat a horse it it was put on a plate in front of him. The granddaughter wants either pasta or pancakes.

I hear horse is pretty cheap if you get it in lasagne or meatballs wink.gif

Posted by: Rick Methven 7.Dec.2014, 04:43 PM

Not a horse but chicken a la king with rice. Easy one pot meal that will satisfy my son ( hopefully)

Let's keep this thread alive!

I am thinking of having an alternative to turkey for Christmas, I am feed up of endless turkey leftover dinners.

Anybody got any great ideas?

Prime rib is always nice.

Goose is nicer!!!

Posted by: Rick Methven 8.Dec.2014, 08:13 PM

I thought you were still ploughing through that 50lb of left over turkey. Enough to last you for Christmas and loads more until next thanksgiving. I was thinking of venison, but my usual supplier said that during last weekends hunt, Rudolf managed to get away yet again. angry.gif

Posted by: Laurelia 8.Dec.2014, 08:14 PM

We're having turkey - I'd quite like goose or guinea fowl instead though.

There was a Chinese chef on BBC 1 this afternoon who did quail. Looked good but you would need one for every person and 2 for my son!!!

Posted by: intrepidfox 9.Dec.2014, 01:13 PM

Last night i had chicken again but this time i mixed 500g creme fraiche, broccoli (already boiled), grated cheddar cheese, salt and white pepper. I then poured it over the chichen breast fillets and in the oven. Served with jacket potatoes. It's really nice.

ps if you are a vegetarian then it's great with quorn fillets.

Today the sambo is away so I can't be bothered cooking properly - falukorv, lingonsylt and a cup of tea makes a girl happy smile.gif


Perhaps later I'll go mad with a chicken breast, a tomato and some creme fraiche.

The missus is out to her monthly knitting meeting so it it is leftover veg curry from the freezer with home made chapatti rice and lashings of lime pickle. All washed down with a bottle or 2 of Newcastle Brown Ale.

Posted by: Rick Methven 10.Dec.2014, 06:10 PM

I have been watching James Martins Christmas Kitchen this week. Getting some good ideas for festive food. An alternative to Roast Turkey could be a flattened breast of turkey filled with stuffing, rolled and wrapped in cling film and steamed. Or filet of venison. This could be a bit on the expensive side though at around 450kr per kilo

Posted by: Gordy 13.Dec.2014, 01:29 PM

We had a few friends around last night and did fillet of pork and bacon in a Philadelphia cheese and cream sauce. It's great for a party as you can just turn down the heat, cover with some tin foil and leave it in the oven until all are ready to eat. Even some of the kids that are fussy eaters wolfed it down. Had home made potato wedges and salad with it last night but it goes great with pasta also.

Just had the Hairy Bikers "Fluffy banana pancakes" for lunch but made with apple instead of banana and topped with defrosted blackberries and redcurrants that we had picked from our garden in the summer.

Shades of the 'traditional' bubble and squeak.

How I would love a nice helping of tripe and onions and boiled potatoes. Read in a Swedish paper about someone trying the tripe bit and saying how she didn't like it. Peasant! ! ! Pure luxury if you could get it. Saw it ONCE only in a butcher's shop on Vegagatan in Gbg - back in 1975. The shop has long since gone - and the tripe with it unfortunately.

Posted by: Svensksmith 15.Dec.2014, 05:10 PM

Last night we had pyttipanna, squash, cole slaw and washed it down with cold apple cider. Everything was home grown except for the beef in the pyttipanna.

For New Year we have had a fusion meal, a filo samosa and a goats cheese filo parcel for a starter followed by slow roast beef, roast spuds and James Martins mothers Yorkshire puds. After a pause to digest we shall have mince pies with custard and biscuits, all home made and then we shall go outside at midnight to join the neighbours for some new year fireworks and a glass of champaign. I will also have a BIG glass of a 15 year old Dalwinney single malt.

And an entire pot of black coffee all to myself smile.gif See you all in the cardiac ward, shortly!

Posted by: Hisingen 14.Sep.2015, 04:22 PM

Fresh salmon, cauliflower, potatoes, peas, and the whole seasoned by some homemade rhubarb chutney. That chutney has been made to what for me is a new recipe, with hot peppers and ginger among the ingredients. Even the salmon sits up and licks its lips when the chutney jar comes into view.
Washed down with some English Ale and followed by a peach fresh from the tree in the greenhouse. And this is only Monday ! !

I must say that one can cook better meals at home far more cheaply and quickly than one can buy out except at special restaurants.

Most everything mentioned here is far better than the bully beef cooked over a very smokey fire in the jungle, as we had back in '51 whilst on patrol in the Malayan ulu, then at night sleeping on bamboo poles to keep above ground away from the ants, under the 'protection' of a poncho cape and never knowing if or when the commies would strike. Ah - those were the days! At least my waistline was where I could see it in those days. biggrin.gif

Posted by: Model T Ford 15.Sep.2015, 12:59 PM

Sounds great, Mzungu, wish I was there to enjoy it, though might not seek seconds for the beans and Marmit.

Reminds me of my last days of basic training at For Dix when the company was in a defensive position against a night attack. The unit was in two-man fox holes to prevent infiltrators from breeching its headquarters, and my fox hole mate was a real food hound.

After we had dug the whole while it was snowing heavily, we finally put our ponchos over the top, and lit cans of sterno to warm up a bit, and make our cans of C-rations a bit more eatable.. There were a few different meals on offer, and the canned chicken was considered the best.

As our cans were getting slightly warmer, my mate asked me what I had, and I replied, "the chicken.",
He responded quickly, "Ford, you always get the best!"

Without even thinking, I replied,"Nothing in this place is anywhere near the best, so you can have my chicken," settling for his franks and beans.

Then we sullenly ate our meals without a word in the cold and darkness.

One thing you notice is that MTF was still in his homeland 'fighting' against his own. Now that must have been hard. Were there any widgets available for heating the food in those trenches ???

Posted by: Model T Ford 15.Sep.2015, 01:36 PM

No widgets, and I wasn't fighting any of my own back then.

In fact, my company mates were almost all college graduates, and we were fighting a war against our sergeants who were trying to make us "shape up" a poor AWOL guy who had just been released from the stockade. If a captain had not come by while they were putting us through rat races, there might well have been a riot.

They still let the guy who was bunking below me die while he was protesting of physical discomfort while on a forced march and despite my complaints about their treatment of him.

You should just shut up when you don't know what you are talking about.

I have only become most opposed to US governance during the last 20 years.

Posted by: Hisingen 15.Sep.2015, 03:23 PM

So that is why you are waging war against them Up widgets and at 'em.
Well I did serve abroad, against an enemy who could truly fire back, so get back to your own backyard trench. laugh.gif

Ah today was great, I browned some nice Halal pork spare ribs then added one large cut up yellow onion, two cloves of minced garlic and one lb of sour kraut with a nice sprinkle of Fennel seed. Popped into the oven at a low temp in my cast iron Dutch oven and baked it for 5 hours. For sides mashed potatoes and steamed asperagus. Washed down with a fine mug of good Lager beer. Its great not being a worshiper of some weird god that says no to meat or certain types of meat and no alcohol.

Amen to that. Those folks simply do not know what they are missing in life.

For me, today, the missus came home with some nice fresh cod fillets which were dished up with suitable items, and washed down with a nice glass of white wine. Now for a nice hot mince pie - - - to be washed down - er sorry - down yes, but with a slowly sipped glass of single malt. Definitely not 'kippis ja kulaus' - 'Cheers and down the hatch' in Finnish.

So you have never seen a lion enjoying a mighty feast of raw venison? Or the way a spider tucks into a lovely fat fly caught in its web. Just where have you been?? And who says sex is enjoyable? Not everyone. In fact I am sure there are many who would disagree with you.
I saw also, in a paper recently, where an alligator in Australia made a snack of a woman's hand. It does make you wonder from where these vegetarians get their arguments from, doesn't it?

Mind you, if they choose to eat like rabbits that is surely up to them - as long as they do not attempt to force their views on others.

Spring has definitely sprung, today was glorious so I fired up the grill and did 2 thick juicy rib eye steaks and had nice bakers with sour cream and excellent asparagus. First of the season and will be doing many more. By the way my grill is not a gas grill I use strictly pure lump charcoal.

Posted by: Bsmith 13.Mar.2016, 12:23 PM

Yes, it was a glorious day here in Northern Illinois. I burned off my brush pile (which requires lengthy supervision coupled with cold beer) and then we fired up the grill and each had a juicy New York steak with potatoes and a nice salad. Then, we sat out on the deck and watched the sunset.

Doesn't get any better than that.

Tonight was burger and chips, home made of course. I make my burgers with 100% beef, none of the nonsense fillers the supermarkets put in. Fried from frozen so they get a good crusty outside and served in a toasted bun with slice of chorizo, a fried egg, chopped onion and some jalapeños with burger sauce. Unbeatable.

Posted by: Bsmith 3.Apr.2017, 10:48 PM

Not bad.

The only improvement I would add is to use fresh, non frozen, grass fed beef. Much more flavor and better for you. Oh, and a nice, cold beer.

Not quite today, but yesterday we decided we needed some Swedish julbord to cheer us up, so off down to ICA I went and loaded up on meatballs, prinskorv, smoked salmon (Lidl for that one), löksill, potatoes, grädfill, beetroot salad and eggs. It probably cost three times what we normally spend on a weeknight dinner at home, but so worth it! We even had a bottle of påskmust lurking, leftover from Easter, so that provided the perfect accompaniment.

Is it wrong to have Christmas/Easter/midsummer food on a random whim at another time of year, or should these things be kept for the special occasions?

Posted by: Bsmith 13.Jul.2018, 11:57 AM
