Simple frittata. 2 pax.

4 large eggs
half an onion, finelly chopped
mozzarella according to taste
basil according to taste
salt according to taste
pepper according to taste
1 tbsp of butter

On a bowl, mix the eggs for scrambled with the salt and the pepper.
Chop the onion and sauté it with the butter it in a frying pan (or whatever that name you call it - I REMEMBER! SKILLET!) until translucid and golden
Add the eggs and let the bottom of the frittata cook for 2 to 3 minutes until you're able to put the mozzarella without it sinking to the bottom.
Add the mozzarella.
Put a lid on it so it cooks.
Take off the heat when the mozarella is melted and the eggs cooked. (It will leave a bit of liquid from the mozarella, it's normal)
Add the basil.
Cut in half.
Eat like you've never eaten before.

Monday dinner.. spaghetti chicken mushroom bake. Fail... Spaghetti was old so it tasted like wet clothes.

Tuesday dinner... Mushroom steak over noodles... Fail... Steak was tough. Noodles had no flavors..

Tonight frozen chicken noodle soup... Add plenty of pepper and it should be good...

Tomorrow something with ground beef any suggestions?
Snowflakes gently floating from the sky just dusting the ground. Then it picks up bigger fatter flakes cascading from space at a faster rate. From a dusting to a trace. Then the deluge comes. Oh what joy. Watching everything slow to a crawl, then a stop. Step outside and even with things moving it is quiet. It is a giant muffler the earth is wearing. Causing everything to be muted.To be calm.

Something with ground beef...

Onion, garlic, add the ground beef, after it's slightly cooked enter the mushrooms, and maybe a red bell pepper, tomato sauce, cummins, salt, pepper, a bay leaf, in a pan. A little cream in the end after everything is cooked just to smoothe the sauce.

Serve with spaghetti. Shred some parmigianno, a few basil leaves on top.

Yum.

If you want a more mushroomy taste, add the mushrooms to the onion and garlic before the ground beef.

You think we could make this a bit of a foodie thread too?

Uncomplicated dinner. Home grown eggs, baby spinach leaves, little bit of grated cheese and ham.
Yummy zucchini fresh from the garden.

Little bit of home made (not by me) cucumber pickles as a sauce.

Sure we can!

First off, I love eggs with stuff, so that looks heavenly.

Second off, your home lays eggs? They must be massive.

Well, that's dinner covered.

Zucchinis are so prolific I can't keep up with them!

In the 10 minutes I was out to harvest this lot, wearing just a sarong (I'm home alone, and it's 306*), the weather changed so suddenly that it almost got blown away :lol:

Fresh off the vege tree!
I have lemons too, but they aren't pretty ones. And some oranges and stone fruits growing.

Love myself all kinds of stone fruits, especially cherries and apricots.

I had a great lemon tree on the garden from a apartment where I lived, they weren't pretty but were big and tasty.
When I get the strenght to go to my family's home in the country, I'll show you the tomatoes!

Cherries and blueberries are my favourite fruits. They grow really well up here, but my cherry tree is sick and only grew 2. I ate the little tomato.

All fooded, forgot I had salmon in the fridge for a treat because I'm home alone (and the kids don't like it), so had that instead of the eggs.

Kitten is *very* interested in my dinner.

I would say yummy except I am not a fan of salmon..

I mad a pork and gravy over egg noodles. Gravy was the best I had made until it broke. From sitting around for an hour. That's a different story for another thread. It still was ok :|

Oreo-trufffle mini-puddings

Edit: these are divine, and made from crushed Oreos + enough sweetened condensed milk to make them sticky enough to roll into balls easily. After that, you can do anything - dip them in cocoa, sprinkles, chocolate...

I’ve put on enough weight. You’re tempting me pan.

My husband hid the salted caramel fudge somewhere so I wouldn’t keep eating it. :lol: I asked him to. :lol:

They don't go very far! 1 packet of Oreos doesn't make many truffles, and they are *very* popular :twisted:

So easy, too. If they're too dry add more condensed milk (or even a bit of water). To mushy, leave them to dry out little before rolling (=

Expensive in Oreos though :roll:

I lurrrrve salted caramel.

Codfish faux risotto

Basically grate a cauliflower, cook it in boiling water, add some cabbage. Cook the fish separately, then shred it.
Drain the veggies, back into the pot with the fish.. some butter and creme fraiche, seasoning and cheese.. maybe some coriander or parsley but I didn't have it. Serve and delight.

Edit.. Half a medium cauliflower is good for two people.. Measure accordingly

Could you add something for color besides parsley or coriander? Maybe a red pepper or would it mess up the flavor..Other than that it looks good.
