THey look good, avalon. One of my favourite restaurant meals in Paris was a salmon fillet on lentils, although it came with goat cheese, too.

I've liked every meal! There's a lot of flavor to the meals they send. I wish I knew what spices they put in those lentils because they were delicious.
The second dish is a veggie curry.

Made "Korean" chicken thighs tonight. NOt sure what makes them Korean - they bake in a mix of green onion, soya sauce, honey, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil. It's very tasty, anyway. SErved with a mix of wild and basmati rice, plus sauteed mushrooms, yellow peppers, and asparagus. Romaine salad on the side.

Roast beef with yorkshire puddings.

Our kitchen is tiny and faces west so gets very, very hot. This is possibly one of the last days we can have a roast before it gets far too hot to have the oven on for that long.

Steamed some crab legs, plus cooked some shrimp in garlic, butter, and wine. Served with mashed potatoes, broccoli with cheese sauce, and some swiss chard (sauteed with garlic).

Mushrooms stuffed with italian sausage & topped with spicy kimchi.
Grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup with a hint of bell pepper.
Dark chocolate tart, with chocolate cookie crust. We tried it with a both a ruby and a tawny port, and opinion was split over which went better.

Lovely night, slightly odd food combos, great friends. No complaints.

Slow cooker lemon chicken. I made a mixture of garlic, ginger, dijon, oregano, thyme, olive oil, salt ,pepper, grated lemon and squeezed lemon juice. Stuffed under the skin, browned in a bit olive oil skin down in the pan, and into the slow cooker with lemon slices on top.

I've added a bit of chicken broth. Toward the end, I'm going to remove the chicken, dump all the goodness in the bottom of the slow cooker into the uncleaned pan that I browned the chicken. Add flour and seasoning if needed, reduce.

Bell peppers are definitely the work of the devil. My buddy made the soup though and he was proud of it, so I ate a little bit. Not terrible, I'll go that far.

Jess, that looks tasty!

Led, your chicken sounds good. I've never done a whole chicken in a crock pot, I'll be interested to hear how it turns out.

I used 6 chickens thighs, bone-in. Lined the bottom of the slow cooker with thick slices of onion, and placed the chicken pieces on top.I could have added a bit of honey at the end, but the lemon sauce was sweet enough on it's own.

OK, what's with the bread sauce? Bread sauce? Why is this even a thing? Why wouldn't you just make brown gravy? Why do you need bread to thicken a sauce in this day and age?

Yes. This argument has been done to death. For the believers, you'll pry the gloppy bread sauce from their cold dead hands, as it messily oozes between their fingers.

I think I'm going to make a giant pan of scalloped potatoes tonight, then have leftovers for lunches all week. It's getting cold at night here, time to start making winter food!

I haven't tried that but I imagine it's good. I just recently discovered that I kinda like fennel, after avoiding it for years (I don't like licorice).

Slow cooker beef & vegetable soup.

Made with a chuck roast & corn, peas, potatoes, carrots, okra, green beans, lima beans. I have a bunch of leftover containers from getting takeout at a local pho place that are perfect for freezing the leftovers. I made enough soup to last a month, ffs.
