Tonight's dinner was shrimp in salsa verde with rice and black beans.

Every kitchen should have a rice cooker!

Quite nice. The Missus approves.

Since we're pretty much snowed in here, I made sure to stock up on essentials for us and the cat. We're definitely good for a few days.

Last night's dinner was an Irish favorite - beef braised in Guinness. (Signora V. is Irish-American) You'll find this on the menu in just about any Irish restaurant or pub that serves food. I have to say that ours is a bit better (IMO) because I more than doubled the Guinness. Otherwise I think it comes off tasting too close to a traditional American beef stew. This way, you really taste the Guinness.

And to hoodlum or anyone else who would like our recipes, if I have it on file I'll be glad to provide it. My files and notes are pretty extensive, though I have been known to improvise when the mood strikes. smile

Thanks, folks, for the kind words!

Going for a traditional Ragu Bolognese tonight. We've been watching Stanley Tucci's series Searching for Italy on CNN and last night's episode ("Bologna") lit a fire under me. Had some ground veal in the freezer but I'll make do with bacon instead of pancetta. The version prepared on TV was basically an adaptation of the original Artusi recipe. Pretty much simple and basic. Can't get tagliatelle at any of my local stores within walking distance so I'll go with fettucine. (And what brand? Why, Luigi Vitelli, of course! wink )

Hoodlum - I'm gonna get my full recipe for you. The one I have in my computer files is taken straight from the Guinness website, but it is not the adaptation we make. So, I'm gonna dig out the paper printout version with my additional handwritten notes (and food stains).

Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, since it's Lent and Signora V. is Catholic, I've been making seafood dishes on Friday. Last Friday it was salmon (she likes hers well-done) with long grain & wild rice (courtesy of soon-to-be-renamed Uncle Ben's) and fresh string beans. Seasoned it before cooking with a bit of salt and fresh pepper then squeezed some lemon juice over everything on the plate. Went over quite well.

The Bolognese was incredible. However, it's quite fatty, owing to neither the veal nor bacon being drained - they cook with the onions, carrot, celery and broth all in one pot.

I had no problems with it, but Signora V., being senza gallbladder, found that it, ah... came back to bite her.

Be warned.
