Thai tonight - we're going out to celebrate my daughter's 20th birthday, we went out for Italian last night to celebrate my birthday.  We'll be on very thin gruel until the end of January after tonight.

Trying to decide between:

1.  Chinese - Venison and broccoli,  

2.  Mexican - Venison burritos,

3.  Venison roast with potatoes and fixings

4.  Pan fried pickerel/walleye with potatoes

 

Can you guess it's my night to cook?

A piece of poached white fish if my internal consumption engine can handle it. Not feeling too chipper today.

I love a Thai Green Curry- but often the consequences are a little breezy - tastes amazing though - have a great night :thumbsup:

Just about to start making a paella. My neighbours spend Six months in India and bring back spices etc for me as we keep an eye on the house, water plants, sort the post etc.Usually brings back a biggish packet of saffron as it is cheap out there, unlike the UK.

Agree about Thai Green Curry, is a family favourite, although my son has just returned from three months in Thailand so we may not have it for a while.

I prefer Thai Red Curry myself but green lends itself much better to prawns or fish.  I've never been to this restaurant before but both my wife and daughter have and both really rate it so I'm sure we'll have a great night thanks!

I love paella, one of my favourite meals, do a neat version (even if I do say so myself), with plenty of chilli, chorizo, chicken and prawns, unfortunately I'm not allowed to use mussels as I'm the only one who likes them so I use some mushrooms thrown in late on so they stay firm.  One thing you definitely need for that dish is lots of saffron - I get mine from an ethnic food shop near me, whilst it's cheaper than the high street stores it still isn't that cheap!

Some sort of roasted vegetable concoction and I believe I saw some chicken! The perils of living with my wife and stepdaughters and their constantly mutating dietary requirements.

 

I have a backup of the leftover Bolognese from last night and, in preparation, I have added some chilli powder. Later on I can have it covered in cheese with a couple of slices of bread and butter!

SWIMBO is making her special version of a chilli, with garlic bread, rice and chips. Nowt flash for me, though I do have a bottle of Lancaster Bomber cooling in the fridge.

 

A good home made chilli is a thing of utter delight!  I can't manage rice, GB and chips these days but it sounds great! :eat:

 

Now are you sure only one bottle of Lancaster Bomber will be enough...:fraidnot::wicked:

My girlfriend was supposed to be taking me out for a meal tonight as it is my birthday today. However, we have decided to get an Indian curry delivered instead so I can now stuff my face and watch Grand Tour at the same time.
