For the first time in many years rather than buying Asian pasta, I bought some European pasta.
A simple meal tonight. I need to finish the leftover steak from last week. I also have some spinach left to finish too.
It’s an easy enough meal.
I boiled some water and cooked the spaghetti. After rinsing and draining the spaghetti I out it into a frying pan with some olive oil and butter and tossed it around a bit before adding in the spinach leaves to wilt. Add to the frying pan a dash of cream and a teaspoon of mustard for flavour and Bob’s your uncle. All I needed to do was toss through the thinly sliced steak, and dinner was ready.
Came home and didn’t feel much like cooking so I removed the bones from a chicken thigh and drumstick and put them into a baking tray. To that I added a piece of cauliflower plus some cherry tomatoes. I seasoned everything with iodised salt and black peppercorns which I’d ground in a mortar with a pestle.
I bought a chicken thigh schnitzel from Belconnen Chicken earlier this morning. I pan-fried it in garlic butter and then tossed in some sliced red cabbage and cherry tomatoes, put the lid on to effectively steam the vegetables.
