Strange food yesterday

New buffet

Today we went to a new place where they have asian buffet with sushi, thai and “general” asian food. It was quite ok. A bit weird place and I got some nostalgic feeling in there. A long time ago I worked in the kitchen at that place when it was a quite famous restaurant in the city I live in. This was (I think) 1987-88 or something. I did some of my training there when I “studied” to be a chef. After “my” restaurant closed down it has been a bakery and now an asian buffet place…

As usual at asian places the sauces is are a bit sweet so the carbs got a bit high today.

For dinner I made a nice stir fry of chicken, paprika, leek and a nice avocado butter.

Shrimps, fish, butter etc… :-)

Tomorrow I am back with “open” posts again. The reason for me not posting recipes the last days is that people does not want spoilers for the recipes for the magazine… :-)

The intakes after a long day at work and a lot of cheese in front of “Hannibal” on Netflix… I have not decided if it is a good och not so good series… Hopefully the second season is better…

Tomorrow I will have to do the third dish and I hav no ideas at all. Shrimps, broccoli and cabbage might play a part… Not sure.

Secret soup for dinner

Today we went to the nice indian place for lunch and I totally forgot I “had to” make dinner later. I need to do some recipes for the magazine. So both lunch and dinner today.

The dinner was a nice soup but I have promised not to post exactly what kind of soup until the magazine is published.

Time flies

Next week it is deadline for my recipes to the LCHF magazine I am writing for. I have no idea what to do… It should be something for the fall like a nice stew…

Today I made a new salad. This time with minced lamb.

  • 250 g minced lamp
  • 40 g chopped onion
  • 1/2 diced green paprika
  • 100 g mayo

I fried the lamb and onion and let it cool a bit. The I did as I use to… Just mix it together with the mayo. I seasoned with a hint of garlic, salt, pepper and a little curry.

Nice lamb

Today I made a really nice lamb dish.

  • 250 g minced lamb
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 red paprika
  • 125 g cabbage
  • 150 g feta cheese
  • 100 g mayonnaise

I fried the lamb and onion in one pan and the cabbage in one. Then I mixed it together and put everything on a plate. Then I added diced paprika and cheese. Really simple and nice.

To get the fat up I had 100 g of mayo as “sauce”

Back to broccoli

On my Swedish blog someone suggested I was experimenting a bit by removing the broccoli from my diet. I ate a lot of broccoli the last months then all of a sudden I stopped. Stopping eating broccoli was not part of anything “bigger”. I just lost interest in it… When I read about it I got the broccoli urge back so today I steamed some to a nice pork chop and pre-made sauce bearnaise.
