Yes Gary....roasting in duck fat is probably not the healthiest option when cooking & eating potatoes....but WOW are they delicious !:tongue:

Spent a lot of the weekend watching the kids at various sporting activities,

Two of my son's at Auskick, then my daughter at her ballet class, then two of my son's at their karate belt grading class.

All this watching of others exercising made me hungry !:tongue:

So.....last night I smacked up this & dumped it onto everyone's plate.

Veal schnitzel topped with a bacon/mushroom/onion mix,

Roasted vegies (corn/beetroot/pumpkin/potato),

Steamed vegies (brocolli & a few snowpeas).

Yum !

Hi Shane,

Veal schnitzel topped with a bacon/mushroom/onion mix......

Just as well there are few carbohydrates in this lot.....I might be able to sneak it past Her Serene Highness as diet food.

we just had corn on the cob wednesday night with our crab legs.. for the corn, i pulled back the husk and removed the threads.. then wrapped it in bacon, pulled the husk up and tied it off, cooked on the grill, the corn was unbelievable! i smoked the crab legs with a "stove top smoker)

with the leftovers, i made corn chowder - i used half yukon gold and half yams for the potatoes.. topped the bowl of chowder off with some shredded crab - yum

Hi Shane,

Few pics of what I cooked up this past weekend.

So, these were imaginary pictures......possibly induced by a little red wine.

Colin......unlike Shane's, your pictures are very good......to the point where I can taste your meal.

LOL @ Gary:biggrin:

I've been fortunate enough to meet Colin & his beautiful Wife,

Whilst I have no doubt that Colin harvested & prepared the fish....I'd bet without a doubt thats his Wife's delicious cooking in those pics !

Here's what I cooked for the family last night....

Jumbo Quails....With broccoli, mashed sweet potatoes and truss cherry tomatoes. Cooked in a special herb butter rub, with a prune and camembert stuffing, served in a grape and white wine sauce

Not bad at all..

I think I'd still prefer a decent chicken kiev any day but... these were nice for a change...

Cheers.

Good sized birds. Where did you get them?

Don't worry about it......it takes a while to develop discerning taste when it comes to food.:wink:

Looks like not much has been posted to this thread for a while.  

 

I just found out that I absolutely love the taste of Rainbow Trout.  A local grocer gets steelhead trout, or apparently the rainbow trout that makes it way back into the ocean.  I find I like the fillets with the skin on, and put them in a pan with a little olive oil and cook most of the way through with a little garlic salt, and perhaps something like parsley.  The meat is so good by itself.

Several months my family and i got stranded for about 10 days on our farm due to serious flooding, was at the end of winter and a good time to harvest our trout. They went very well in crepes with oyster mushrooms and a wild herb dressing.

Hi,

 

Today's lunch was kangaroo......seared on a hot BBQ grill and left to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and eating.

 

Stronger taste than beef.....virtually no fat.....and organic.

 

Kangaroo is game and can accommodate strong marinades and sauces without being overwhelmed.

 

I'm happy to eat it as it comes off the grill......preferably with chips (french fries) and some salad.  Regrettably, I'm trying to exercise some restraint when it comes to eating, so there were no chips today.

 

Gary
