OK, as I was in bachelor mode last week, not too many pics...

Yesterday's dimple bachelor dinner, sausage and mash.
All "prepacked"...


The demi glace sauce is not bad at all, and the mash is in fact good. Just add some butter and cream in it.
The sausage comes from Popular, not bad at all.

The weekly special menu at my usual place is particullary appetizing this week, so I headed over there yesterday evening.

I had the chicken in mushroom/cream sauce. The sauce was absolutely perfect !

Love the other dishes as well, so I'll probably go taste them in the coming days.

Had a beer first, I mean a REAL beer, not the Bintang "stuff"...
And properly poured !

I struggle too understand how you can eat such "heavy" european food in the heat you have down there - was in the "smoke" today and the temp was 36c for sure!

Got home to my cave in the east around 2ish, had an icy Binny (lived for 15 years in Bavaria and never liked that
Weissen muck - tastes like bubble gum), turned on the fan and slept for 1 hour.

Ate my dinner around 5:30 when it had cooled down significantly.

Nothing "heavy" about it, just normal, regular food like we eat at home.

15 y in Bavaria ? Works twice there for a few months near the Brombachsee, on a dam project.

Yes sir! Immediately sir. You moving towards pensionable age yet?
We are all unfortunately moving towards pension age but only the guy upstairs ( or maybe downstairs in my case) will decide if we get there. Mind you he had better be quick as only 12 months for him( or her as need to be politically correct) to decide.

Not so Cheers yet
Ken

Well, not updated this since some time. The Missus being in Java I am in bachelor mode and I do less cooking.

And I don't want to post the same dishes I posted before.

Anyway I few recent ones at home :
Yesterday's breakfast, back to childhood.

And an easy salad for lunch (pasta, chives, baby tomatoes, ham, egg, olive oil)

DSCN0640.JPG


Last week at the French place :

Lentils with sausage and poached egg.

DSCN0635.JPG


This week's menu is pretty nice and I went twice (probably going again tonight...)

The weekly special :

Pork stew with beer, served with mashed potatoes :

DSCN0638.JPG

And the best : lamb shank with couscous semoule

DSCN0646.JPG

Really good, had it yesterday and I am tempted to have it again tonight....

Of course as a French, any proper dinner has to start with 1 or 2 Pastis before eating, followed by 2 glasses of wine while eating.....

Was looking for the beer you had with the pork stew with beer till I realised it is probably in the sauce ?

I do a similar thing with most of my food when in Bali except it is mixed internally...

And a serious question from me for a change

I had to google Pastis anilou but now know its an aniseed based drink commercialised by Paul Ricard and used as an aperitif.
So why?

Is it a palate cleanser, taste bud exciter , refreshing drink or it just gets you pissed quicker?

PS , The guy Paul Ricard must have been fairly successful as I believe they named a race car circuit after him. Shows the French must like Pastis anilou a lot...

Judging from the pictures of food and booze Balifrog keeps posting I think he must be Pastis most of the time!!

More a refreshing drink, good old French tradition.

And yes Ricard, the most popular brand of pastis is a rather powerfull group.

When at the French place we have our "regular" table, a group of 4 or 5, same age, we called it the poet's table, and 2 pastis while telling good old days stories is a nice way to start the evening !
When in "bachelor" mode usually followed after dinner by a.few beers at ULU or Casablanca....
Have to enjoy life !

Was a lazy week for me so it was every day dinner at my usual French place.

A few pics :

Salmon with a cream, white wine and dill sauce. The sauce was absolutely superb. Confirmed by other friends who had the same.

DSCN0644.JPG

Salad with warm goat cheese on toasted baguette. Very nice. A little bit honey on top of the warm goat cheese gives a really nice flavor.

DSCN0650.JPG

One of my favorite desserts "baba au rhum". A spongy cake imbibed in rum and served "swimming" in rum. Delicious !

The Missus is back home, so back to mainly "home cooking" starting today.
