Nice thread Xanthippe, thanks for posting ! I do a lot of cooking as well, love to experiment.
Several things me and my wife enjoy - BBQing salmon on the grill after marinating in Very Very terriyaki sauce for about an hour or so. Very tasty.
I love making my infamous country fried potatoes for breakfast - slice organic golden yellow potatoes up good, kind of thin, from the garden I add in fresh basil cut up, green onions, rosemary, or sometimes red onions, slice up a little zucchini squash, add in sharp cheddar cheese, add a little soy sauce, a little Pepper plant spicy sauce, or a jalapeno pepper, add lemon pepper , and cook for about 45 minutes or so turning the potatoes often and a little longer if you want them crispy. But cook it at medium to low heat on the burner.
Here's a recipe I just did for a second time for me and my wife for dinner :
Called Shrimp & Zucchini pasta ! Ingredients are :
7 ounces shelled shrimp, 2 zucchini squash sliced in thin rounds, 9 ounces of cream cheese, 1 lemon zested and cut in half, squeeze half in the pasta, other half just cook in. 1 small bunch of dill and 1 vegetable stock cube in a large saucepan . Add 9 ounces whole wheat spaghetti, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper, and 3 cups of water. Cook about 15 to 20 minutes over medium, stirring often. About one quarter inch of cooking liquid should remain at the end. Serves 4 . It was enough for 2 nights worth of dinner for me and my wife. It's really delicious ! Give it a try !
So these are a few recipes I've been workin ' on. Thanks for starting the thread ! Peace out, Mr. Flipper
