Later today I'm hoping to make chorizo and chickpea couscous, provided the fiance cleans the kitchen first.

The other day we did home-made ravioli. What a hassle, even with a pasta machine!
Immediately afterwards, I finally gave in and ordered one of those ravioli trays/molds that let you make a bunch at a time rather than folding each one *lovingly* (read: muttering curses) by hand. It's scheduled to arrive tomorrow, so I'd better gear up for a test run...

Tortellini in a pesto sauce from basil, oregano, olive oil, garlic sauce, and an extra gazillion pine nuts (than what's called for in a rational person's recipe). Sprinkled heavily with grated parmesan.

I bought the tortellini ready-made, but I made the pesto myself. For wine, I had hot chocolate.

I'm now on my third hot chocolate.

Homemade pesto is simply the best. I always tell friends, the first time you make your own pesto is the last time you buy it.

Absolutely. I've been known to eat a half a cup's worth with a spoon...fergit the pasta.

Szechwan eggplant with tofu and a vegetable spring roll - leftovers from last night's dinner out with my husband at a local Asian fusion restaurant.

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

First time cooking pancake and it failed miserably. Half-burnt pancake on one side and the other side had rough, uneven texture. The inside of pancake was raw dough.

I've just made Puy lentil soup for lunch and there's a loaf in the oven.

Salmon with chili powder and cracked red pepper, topped with a kiwi/pineapple/mango/onion/lime salsa, and paired with garlic salt and olive oil potato wedges, and blended margaritas to drink.

Mushroom curry, red lentils with cabbage and rice. Mint tea to wash it down. Quite tasty for a cold day!

Homemade french fries with store-bought burgers, the fries turned out better than the blooming onion yesterday.

Did you deep fry them or oven bake them? I rather enjoy "oven fries" and like to make them with a mix of sweet potatoes and yellow potatoes, sprinkled with paprika or even chili powder for a little kick.

Deep fried. I boiled them in salt water, then fried them after sprinkling pepper.

Ok I admit I don't technically have it cooking *now* but the duck is ordered and on its way to my place for my next attempt at home-made ravioli!

Duck dishes used to be a staple in our cooking until we moved to a place where it's hard to find quality duck parts at reasonable prices. This time, we're trying an online store that a family friend recommended.

Teriyaki and sweet chili glazed salmon, garnished with sesame seeds and green onions, served on white rice alongside stir-fried onion, bell pepper, carrots, pineapple, and water chestnuts, and a cabbage and mandarin orange slaw alongside.

We made the duck ravioli! Much, much easier with the ravioli mold, though I still covet a bigger kitchen so we could spread out our assembly line.

For the filling, we combined ground duck + spinach + herbs + mushrooms + cheese + leftovers from a restaurant (polenta, meat).
For the sauce, we did a simple butter + chicken stock + soy sauce + herbs.

Pro tip: NEVER stack the pre-cooked ravioli or let the ravioli touch each other.

Garlic-breaded pork chop, served over whole-wheat fettuccine with mozzarella and Cabernet-marinara sauce (basically Chicken Parmesan with pork instead of chicken), chopped Italian salad, and a glass of the same Cabernet that went into the marinara alongside.

Vegetarian split pea soup and roasted spaghetti squash (made with olive oil). Also, there will be a mixed green salad. I have some fish that I'm also thinking of sauteeing and then sort of "half-poaching" with wine. Not sure when all of this will get eaten or if it will even go in the same meal, but it's the weekend and if I'm going to cook, this is when I'll do it.

Swedish pancakes (crepes, essentially), which I personally love to overload with fillings, so they had strawberries, cottage cheese, honey, sour cream, maple syrup, and whipped cream. And, as sweet as that ends up being, it's one of the few breakfast dishes that I actually like coffee with, so it gave me a good reason to learn how to use the french press coffee maker I got a while back. Delicious!

Barbecued things like sausages, hamburgers, and fishballs. Just started the fire for that.
