Tomorrow I will try to replicate this dish:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Only I'll do it with my own creative twist.
Some butter, when sauteing, then white wine to cool it off when the onions are done ...no pork strips.


I'll sprinkle some cashew nuts, kosher salt, celery, golden pearl onions, celery, white radish, and cubed potatoes, carrots and so on.
I was thinking of using coconut milk, but I decided against it.
Maybe I'll do so another time.

I've purchased everything except a few things.
Tomorrow I'm off to my fish monger for giant clams, and shrimps, scallops, crab meat (perhaps?) and some kind of fleshy fish.
I haven't decided what yet.

Hopefully I will not ruin it.

My take on fish stew/soup, oriental style.
It's still boiling, in the image, and it smells magnificent.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

On the side, some rice noodles.
To consume it I will use a spoon and some chop sticks, from a beautiful set my friend gave me as a gift, from Thailand.
A glass of chilled white wine on the side, and some croutons I made, with toast and garlic butter.

Bon apetit

I am now making minestrone soup.
It takes 6-8 hours of slow-cooking so I began at 6:00 a.m., after my morning walk.


I know, I'm making a lot of soups lately.

I like soups.
It is getting chilly here so soup is soothing.
And soups are relatively easy to make.

I do cook more solid, and complex stuff, from time to time, but I need to be in the mood and dedicate a half a day to it.

I'll post a pic when I'm done ...in about 4-5 hours from now.

That actually looks quite delicious - so either I'm a good judge of food or that soup is heavenly.

Soup is a staple for a friend of my grandfather's. Soups 5 days out of 7. All organic, etc. She decided to change her eating habits after she got breast cancer. It is so much easier than preparing those fanciful meals.

I haven't given myself the time to practice eating healthy and the more I'm learning, the more I regret each day that passes in which I'm not. Every post made here on this forum showcasing healthy and delicious looking food is continually making it more attractive.

You can then add broccoli, carrots, or any vegetable you like.

I don't know about that Fettuccine Carbonara:no: Even just looking at it.


That meatloaf looks delicious. I use a lot of finely chopped onions and green peppers in mine.
Chicken curry looks great too. Damn I'm now hungry! And actually, the minestrone looks delicious.

The presentation is lacking.

But anyway isn't all this flavor all too... distracting?
Shall we not survive on a diet of oatmeal, to maintain our discipline?

Yeah, presentation is lacking.
But it was delicious.

Satyr cannot live on wine alone....or bread.

Life is to enjoy...with measure.

You mustn't feed only your stomach.
Your eyes will get hungry.

But tell me, were these great, wise men from the past, who first uttered "nothing in excess" aware of the existence of butter?

Wisdom, genius, dear, means the words you use apply across time and place.

They were aware of human need.
Like I am aware of your hunger.

Caramelized apples, for dessert.
[The chicken is still in the oven]

Apples, walnuts, pine-nuts, butter, a touch of cognac (Metaxa, of course), brown sugar, a dab of maple syrup (to keep it Canadian), cinnamon, dried apricots and figs [gifted from a friend oversees], raisins, and in the end some shaved almonds.

Vietnamese fresh spring-rolls...

My first attempt.
Clumsily made. I tried to stuff too much ingredient into the delicate rice-wrap.

Pumpkin seeds, bean sprouts, shrimp, lettuce, cucumber, rice noodles...now I have to figure something out for a dip.
