Today, sausages with herby garlicky polenta, an onion gravy, and mixed steam veg. With a glass of very nice Valpolicella.

Followed by coffee with an oat biscuit.

(5 minutes later....)

So far pistachio's & kombucha ...now the coffee is ready....

For lunch today I made rice noodles with oyster mushrooms, bok choy and tofu in a coconut cream sauce.

For dinner I made μπουγιουρντί. In a clay casserole pot you place layers of onion (sliced in rings), diced green pepper and chilli, slices of tomato, and top it with lots of crumbled feta and cubes of yellow cheese. This is spiced with oregano, cumin, fenugreek and black pepper, drizzled with olive oil and baked in the oven.

I ate it with bread made from locally grown barley.

On the menu for dinner tonight: seitan and vegetarian pho.

Discovering seitan was just about the only good thing to come out of 2017 for me lol.

Also slowly working my way through the Thug Cookbook series. It's has been a real lifesaver for someone looking to go from vegetarian to vegan someday. As others can attest, 9 out of 10 of vegan recipes have bizarro expensive ingredients I'll never use again or are simply gross.

Grigoris, that sounds delicious.

Last night I had a little bit of baked brie with apricot preserves on bread (appetizer), then a main course of mushroom and cream pasta, sautéed green beans, salad and then chocolate mousse for dessert.

The food was good, but the best part was the company. I was at an event for our small town symphony, which included a wild polka dancing lesson by a Harvard professor of ethnomusicology who specializes in Nordic folk dancing and the intersection of dance and sexual orientation (something like that). And I was seated next to a philosophy professor and a truck stop mogul, among other fascinating individuals.

On the topic of Vegemite and/or Marmite: can I get some advice on what to do with the stuff? What is the best thing a body can do with a dollop of salty brown goop?
Best: on buttered toast, sparingly spread
Good: with cheese in a cheese sandwich, also dabbed on top of peanut butter on crackers or celery
Okay: with hot water in a mug - sort of broth, can also be used in cooking (sparingly) to replace stock

My personal favourite: marmite and marmalade on the same piece of toast - sweet, bitter, salty, savoury all at once

Maybe get some ideas here: https://www.marmite.co.uk/category/recipes though most of these try to complicate things too much. If you want a hit of salty, savoury goodness then you can use marmite :twothumbsup:

Dinner:
Moroccan-style tagine of chick-peas, sausage and red onion, with multigrain bread rolls instead of the traditional flat bread. Spanish-style chorizo, for that matter.
Not my turn to cook, and dinner is always "cook's choice" here, but good Aussie tucker to finish off the Australia Day weekend. :smile:

Old-fashioned. Supposedly to build up the strength of invalids. When I was a kid it worked pretty well as an anti-malingerant (new word - work it out! :tongue: )

Definitely a personal favourite. :rolleye:

Vegemite and honey, on the other hand, is surprisingly good. :smile:
If you wanted to be more Australian, try vegemite and golden syrup.

You could try the Moosewood Cookbook http://www.molliekatzen.com/books_moose ... okbook.php
Very sensible and straightforward, not many exotic ingredients, and the food tastes fine. Our copy is decades old and still in regular use.

Yup. :smile:

I did say "surprisingly" and I meant it. Everyone else gives it the :rolleye: treatment too, but don't knock it 'til you've tried it.

Mock cheese souffle, brussel sprouts, fried wild mushrooms with caramelised onions, beetroot salad with Greek yogurt and walnuts.

For dessert it was a chocolate praline sponge cake and a cream and preserved fruit chocolate covered sponge roll. :pig:

Had the parents over for dinner today, so my wife and my my mother cooked! :twothumbsup:
