Friday night we had a Chinese hotpot for dinner. Tonight, with the leftover broth, I added some of the leftover meat sliced thin and made 수제비, hand torn noodles, served with white and red kimchi drizzled with a touch of sesame oil.

@YakLord Oh, man, that looks good. I had a Dutch girlfriend years ago who made those delicious Indonesian dishes. Too bad she dumped me broken_heart

Although I didn't take this picture (supplied by blogTO), this was exactly my dinner last night, takeout from Sunny's Chinese. Dan Dan noodle, crispy hidden chicken, smacked cucumber, steamed yu choy, mapo tofu and sweet rice cake. Had a pre-dinner martini, Riesling with dinner and a Rusty Nail with the rice cake. Have enough leftovers for one or two more dinners!

@BlueNote - back in 2005 my wife went to The Hague on a business trip. As I had nothing better to do for that week (we didn't have kids at that time), I went with her, and while she was out doing her work-related stuff during the day, I explored the city (or tried to, as it was November and it was cold and rainy the entire week, and I wasn't feeling great). She was out really late one night because they'd been invited out to dinner by their Dutch colleagues, and taken to what she describes was a phenomenal Indonesian place...I think I grabbed my dinner from a supermarket that night...

I shoveled through 2 feet of snow to get to my BBQ in order to prepare dinner for my family. We had grilled marinated steaks and asparagus.

For dessert my wife created a Boston Cream Lasagna. And trying not to stray too far from whisky, I brewed myself a cup of barley coffee, which, I have to say, tastes almost nothing like barley tea.

@Nozinan That's true dedication to food. Nice looking bbq but your wife's dessert looks a wonderful thing. Is that her recipe or a well known pudding in your parts? Will look it up now! Need something to create on another day of rain in the west of england. Cheers.

@Timp She found the recipe online. I found the ganache a little rich.

Tonight we are repurposing frozen bones from rib roasts past to make a beef soup, into which my wife plans to put potato dumplings. The dumplings are a new experiment, one that I am looking forward to...

@BlueNote Sorry! I made Welsh Cakes and Bara Brith, too, and am going to try and make some Glamorgan Sausages on Friday or Saturday...

@MRick Yes, I do! And I will happily share it. The recipes for all the stuff I've been preparing for Saint David's Day are from this website: businesswales.gov.wales/foodanddrink/… For the life of me, though, I cannot figure out why it's called a Black Cake, because I've made three over the past few years, using different recipes, and not one has been really dark on the inside...maybe I'm not using a dark enough brown sugar? Who knows, but the recipe from the Business Wales site is the best of the three that I've done.

@YakLord Tons of great recipes there, thanks for the link. The Welsh roast chicken with leeks and bacon and the Welsh beef, leek and rosti potato pie look particularly good. yum
