Thread: What's for dinner today

    • 1 cup of quinoa, rinsed very thoroughly
    • 3 cups of liquid to cook the quinoa (I used 2 cups of water 1 cup of pineapple juice)
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 2 cloves of garlic, sliced
    • 1 cup of diced pineapple
    • 1 cup of diced ham
    • cup of frozen peas
    • tsp of chilli powder
    • 2 eggs, beaten

    1. Cook the quinoa with the 3 cups of liquid
    2. Fry the onions, garlic and chilli powder until the onions are just softening.
    3. Add the pineapple, ham and frozen peas to the onion mix, gently warm through, until the peas are thoroughly thawed, but not cooked. – They have that just picked fresh taste.
    4. When the quinoa is cooked, (liquid is absorbed and it has the consistency of porridge) remove from heat.
    5. Add the eggs to the pineapple mix, turn up the heat and stir until the egg is scrambling.
    6. Add the quinoa, stir thoroughly and serve on warm plates.

    Quinoa (uncooked) is a dreadful commodity to use. Spill it and it runs around like ball bearings on a teflon surface. It is virtually impossible to pick up.

    The verdict from Mrs. Rebbonk was that it was a little too "sweet and sour" for her liking and when we do it again, we'll miss out the pineapple.

    Thank you Rebbonk. I must admit that sweet and sour hasn't been on our menu and its something I had forgotten about. Now I have this we'll give it a go.

    I reckon about 9.00.

    Mrs Rebbonk has done the shopping, so I think she'll likely want a drink later.

    If I set off now, I should be just in time to catch a small glass of wine with you and then join you for a scrummy dinner. Mr Gladys can get fish and chips tonight!

    Pork and apple casserole tonight. That'll go down lovely after a couple of early pints.

    Well, that's nearly a Spanish Omlette Margaret which I love; Enjoy. (I get so caught up with the spelling problem myself as I have Dyslexic traits anyway.)

    I've just corrected some typos in my post, I can't believe I made such errors , I have noticed lately I am very careless with my spelling without meaning to be, whereas in the past I was very fussy about spelling. I'll put it down to my age, a good excuse as any I guess.

    Spelling and English grammar used to be my forte. Not so these days and I too make an allowance on a similar basis. I try to correct as I go but often miss glaring errors. Apologies now to all who may find terrible typos and mistakes in my jottings.

    Mrs Rebbonk is doing chicken and chips for this evening.

    Last night I did a vegetarian pasta dish that went down quite well. - Unlike my attempt at Pizzoccheri earlier in the week. I actually liked it, Mrs Rebbonk was not impressed.
