I ate a steak sandwich for dinner.

Boring I know :bgrin

Was thinking I might get enough mangos for a nice Burmese pork curry but I think I will be in South Oz by the time they ripen - fuck all fruit under these conditions.

Prosciutto is Parma ham. Buy it in an Italian butcher/food shop. Sliced really thin delicious with rock or honeydew melon, nice and tangy.

As always, my mind is turning to what to contribute to the Christmass dinner.

I am thinking a potato salad. Not one of these things that look like white bricks cemented by cum.

Think new season, small, yellow-fleshed waxy potatoes, steamed in jackets until just this side of completely cooked. Cool, toss in butter, sprinkle with paprika. I will make some sort of green salad to put the potatoes on, pour over dressing just before serving. I am thinking of dressing this up with some of the superb WA sardines, either bought already cooked and marinated, or cook the sardines myself with fennel seed or fennel bulb sliced thinly (some of this can go in the green salad too.) Place sardines radiating out from the salad, with a dill gherkin in between.

Now, that's what I call a potato salad! Will need a huge plate to put it all on.

That sounds nice Auzgurl. Post the recipe. I'm always looking for good salad recipes. I agree with you about the sardines and the potato salad - very strange combination. If you had to use any fish at all - I would finely chop a couple of anchovies and mix it into the salad.

Don't forget these are fresh, not canned, sardines. Well, it was just a suggestion--think I will road trial that this weekend. Can dress it up a bit, a few onion rings overlapping down the length of the sardines

Every time I read this thread - it makes me hungry. I've got a bowl of salad, tiny bit of chicken and some tuna for dinner. There's no point in cooking large meals - they won't get eaten. What do you do with all the food in your garden Monk? You'd have to give it away or do you eat everything you grow and cook?

Mostly eat it, like to share some and preserve some, peach butter, sundried tomatoes etc. a big meal half is kept and I freeze it or just microwave it for lunch at the shop, etc.

Too late. I've just had a half bowl of my bland chicken salad - it's done its job. The sauce sounds delicious except for the coconut milk - too rich. I might make a red curry tomorrow though - if it's not too hot a day.
