Tell us what you cooked or ate (or drank) today! We love to see photos too, if you have them.
Hi!! Today morning i start my day with fresh watermelon juice. It assist my mind for fresh. I have no photos now.
Last night we had trout fillets, leeks, parmentier potatoes (well, I used thyme instead of rosemary) and broccoli steamed with lemon juice. Very fresh tasting.
ETA: the brocolli went brown in parts which I assume was where I squeezed over the lemon before steaming. Am I right? Should I add lemon after cooking?
Hot dog burger......
I'm not sure - not come across that before...
Chicken Sausage Rolls with Poached Egg. I poached the egg for less time than usual, assuming it would cook some more when I reheated it for lunch. Fortunately, the yolk was still runny. I've tried my sausage rolls with a variety of different dips, and I think I like the yolk the best.
Just try not to think of the cradle-to-grave barbarism implied in having a chicken and an egg on the same plate.
We were talking about egg with chicken in the What doesn't go with eggs? thread. How did you reheat the poached egg?
30 seconds in the microwave. That's why I didn't completely cook it, since I knew it'd cook some more when I reheated it. I did the same thing yesterday with a fried egg, but by the time I got to work the not-completely-set yolk had partly slid off and covered the bottom of the container. Not so pretty.
Ah! In restaurants they re-heat poached eggs in water in a pan (which I've done). I haven't tried microwave. Isn't there a danger of the yolk bursting? I know you have to prick yolks if you microwave eggs.
This only seems to be an issue if you're microwaving a raw egg. Since mine was partly cooked, the extra 30 seconds presented no danger.
Happy st David's day. Welsh cakes.
Beautiful! @LadyBelle introduced me to them with this recipe:
Speaking of which, I'm going to have to add this to my ever-growing list of Dishes to Make Again.
Gorgeous! I made some too when @LadyBelle posted her recipe and you have now inspired me to make some more. I used aquafaba in place of egg which worked OK.
Useful to know. Your egg certainly looks fine.
Pan sautéed cod fillet with crab and shrimp butter sauce, rice pilaf, and crab stuffed mushrooms. It's all kind of tan and brown, but was really good
Homemade brownies for dessert.
