    That would be a dream to eat for my misses. She loves cheese with just about everything. Salad, stews in soup (her own bowl not mine) pasta naturally, with just about anything. Its a wonder she doesnt put it in her coffee.

    Oh yeah.... thats good NOLA fried shrimps right there! I'm glad there were enough left to make the wraps :giggle:
    part of my marital contract is that I get seafood of my choice, no less than once weekly.
    This time though, I was especially proud of the slaw, I gave it a little spanish twist with zest and juice of a lime along with some cilantro.

    This is not what I'm cooking, but it is what I wish I was eating:

    [​IMG]

    Singapore Chow Mei Fun

    Anyone ever had it? My absolute fave Chinese. Not an authentic Singapore dish, or so I have read, but was reputed to be an Americanized imitation of the noodles one can buy from street vendors in Singapore. Rice noodles flavored with curry powder, shit is spicy and SOOOO good.

    Bird, you should cook a huge kettle full of this stuff and invite all of us to dinner. Make some tea, too, k bud?

    That looks delicious!!!
    I've dabbled in Chinese, japanese and vietnamese but I've never tried anything from Singapore.
    Its definitely going in my list for when the stores get back to normal.

    Wow I like the idea of that one!

    My Dad was a sailor in the Aus navy, he was a gunner but one of his best mates was a cook on one of the ships he served on. They travelled during service to numerous Asian and Pacific island places picking up and trying the foods along the way and cooking them. My Dad was a great Asian food cook as a result of it. I do miss his cooking.

    So after that big build up here is a humble omelet I did yesterday. Herbs with tomato and cheese :giggle:

    Night before last I made a brown-sugar glazed spiral sliced ham for dinner. This morning we still have some of it left, so I just had a yummy breakfast.

    I made myself a toasted, buttered sweet Hawaiian bagel, and put a double layer of the ham and a handful of shredded cheddar cheese on it. Nuked it for just long enough to get the ham warm and the cheese melted. Had a cup of mocha with it.

    I could probably eat another sandwich, but then I'd be miserable. Sure was good, though!

    Home made chicken and veg soup. Couple of nights ago, finished the last of it for tea (dinner) last night. They say its theraputic from the chicken collagen. I asked the misses if she felt better after having it, she said no but it tastes nice. A partial win there. But today she said she feels a little better so I'll attribute that to the Chicken soup (im dreaming I know) but that makes me feel better. :giggle:

    It was bologna. Which works for me. Ha ha then I literally put my plate in the sink and her dad showed up with a huge bucket meal from KFC. I think I will. At least the gravy and biscuits

    This is the best I can translate the misses lasagne. Hey, she's Italian and dyslexic, it was quie a job understanding her :giggle:
    She uses quick cook lasagne sheets but any type is good I guess.
    The chicken is from whole chicken breasts that she half freezes so they can be cut easily into very thin pieces. The bacon is the streaky type, like if you had a whole bacon rasher but just cut of the tail section, the streaky bit and used that. She cuts that up into small pits too.
    First up she fries up some cut up brown onion and red sweet capsicum and nearly forgot two cloves of finely chopped garlic in which ever oil you like. We use rice bran oil, yeah I know, an Italian not using olive oil!? That then goes into the tomatoe sauce that is simmering along with fresh chopped basil and italian parsely. Sometimes we have homemade sauce from her family but if not a good shop one with a couple of good tomatoes chopped up and added to the shop one. The oil that the onion and capsicun was fried in is now used to cook the chicken and bacon pieces not fresh oil but that oil with all the flavour in it.
    How much chicken and bacon is just a guess but she uses typically two large chicken breasts and six good size streaky bacon pieces.
    She hard boils 5 eggs and then slices them up.
    Now its just typical layer upon layer making it. On top of each finished layer of chicken, bacon and eggs and with a generous sauce covering goes some shredded tasty cheese and shredded parmesan.
    Cook till done. Nice and easy apart from time spent but really tasty.

    That is some good lookin food. Dang! I'd need my steak cooked just a little bit more, but damn if that doesn't make me jealous! :)

    Beer bread is some awesome stuff, too. People wouldn't believe how easy it is to make, and how good slathered with butter.

    Love me some good burgers. They are so easy and it's fun getting creative with them.Since getting my new smoker and having lots of time, I've been smoking the all of my burgers

    That steak was cooked to a perfect in between medium rare and medium. That's my sweet spot. IT melted in the mouth. All a good hunk of beef needs is simple salt and pepper and yes the bread is so simple and delicious.

    Ours are called Yabbies. I love them but unfortunately the dams in my area are finished by illegal fishing for them to sell to restaurants and for Melbourne markets. I actually was so p'd off by it all that last year I put my nets out on the front lawn with a sign saying "free, take them" $100 worth.
    Is cheaper and easier now, how sads that, to just go to the supermarket and buy some Prawns.
    Such is the world we live in huh!?

    Yeah sad when you live near a good fresh seafood source but overfishing and/or government intervention becomes roadblocks.
