I quite like cooking, but like simple easy cooking and thought someone out there might be interested what I make Mrs G for her tea (I'm vegetarian so you won't want to know what I'm having). Here's what she had tonight Smile

Scottish farmed salmon fillet, spread with english mustard, covered in chives, wrapped in foil and shoved in the oven for 30 minutes. (she likes well cooked fish)

Whilst that was cooking I put some dill (I like loads), a tiny bit of finely chopped then crushed garlic, a glug of balsamic, a glug of olive oil and a bit of truffle oil in a bowl, then stirred in some quartered cherry tomatoes to marinade whilst the fish was cooking.

When the fish is nearly done, I empty the marinated toms and garlic over some wild rocket and lollo rosso leaves in a salad bowl, give it a toss and whack everything on a plate! Easy and lovely (or so she said!)  Cool

sounds good, Cardinal.  I'm not a vegetarian but I think I've eaten meat about three times in the last eighteen months in the interests of lowering cholesterol and BP (and it's worked Very Happy ).  I do like fish though, but I'm finding my diet a bit boring, pasta with veggies and sauce, rice with veggies and sauce, Jacket potatoes, pizza.  I do like fish though.  Any more recipes (including veggie) would be welcome to vary my diet a bit.

30 minutes in the oven for a salmon fillet Shocked Murderer Wink

Give yourself a bonus point if the rocket, chives and dill were homegrown.

Hey, I'm only cooking to order, I don't eat the stuff! Wink

Bean surprise tomorrow night, and next week I might do Houmus Hab.

Kathy, can you get dr oetken pizzas? I love their garlic mushroom ones, it's like half a gallon of garlicky mushroomy butter on unleavened bread, mmmm - right, I'm off to do some pasta!

Maybe CG should open a restaurant...i've never had much luck finding good places in the UK...English food didn't really impress me much and I had bad luck trying to find authentic Italian or Thai...Salmon is my favorite fish...wonderful in pasta dishes.

I couldn't be a chef, I can only keep track of one thing at a time Smile

The San Remo in Rochdale used to do a seriously good coffee, dunno if it's still there though.

I was surprised how hard it was to find a good restaurant...even in West London I struggled to find quality.

I trust you let the establishments know about your disatisfaction? After working in one I don't do restaurants by choice.

Cardinal - what did you add to your meal to replace the fish protein? If all I ate was tomatoes and rocket i'd colapse. I'm interested, as I want to cut down on meat too, but I thought it had to be replaced with something...well, nourishing.

Beans, grains, even potatoes - all high in protein. There's no particular need to eat meat or fish in order to get the protein you need. And if you carry on eating dairy and eggs, as many do, it's even easier.

I'm still reeling from SM claiming to be unable to find any decent restaurants in London. All those Michelin-starred chefs must have relocated to San Antonio, Texas while I wasn't looking. Good grief.

Tex - you should stop dining in Burger King and Angus Steak House.  London is full of fantastic restaurants!

Like Chasm says, it's a piece of proverbial replacing protein.

Last Night with the leaves, I had Goodlife spinach and cheese bakes, then a snickers bar, a bar of galaxy and later about 1kg wet weight of tricolour fusilli in pesto rosso. This morning I had two quorn 1/4 pounders for breakfast.  Smile

Probably.... yuk!  Maybe Sm has a point.  
I'm not really a gastronome, I still think the most delicious food is when you're really hungry - 120 miles in the cold, sausages and chips and a cup of tea.
