Something I have not had in forever.

A good homemade Cioppino with warm baguette and good butter.

Jambon-beurre:

A freshly baked baguette. 

Freshly sliced cooked ham.

Some good quality butter.

Pasta alfredo - the original style, with pasta, butter and parm only.

 

Soft scrambled eggs with fresh black pepper and, again, grated parm.

 

Pan seared steak with a simple reduction, shallots, mushrooms may or may not be involved.

Shakshuka-spicy tomato sauce with eggs poached in it and a dollop of plain yogurt or feta on top, scooped up with pita bread. Or rapinni sauteed with garlic, chili flakes and pancetta with an egg on top.

straccetti on rughetta (i posted this somewhere on these forums at one point) - i believe in a thread called food fads you hate or something.  I was complaining about the stinginess of arugula when people make this in restaurants. 

I get it on the table in five (count 'em, 5) minutes, and with a piece of bread to sop up the seasoning, you have meat, vegetable and starch.

Another is pasta with frozen shrimp, peas and garlic - on the table in the time it takes to boil the water and cook the pasta. 

 

these are my two get-home-from-work-dead-tired-and-hungry-at-8:30 meals. 

 

if i'm not too interest in balance and vegetables, a bowl of cheerios and raisins with milk

Mmm... A really good steak.

Also poached eggs on toast with just salt and pepper: one of life's great pleasures.

And my mothers classic German potato salad, heaps of pickles, onions and bacon. I could eat that all day.

All so quick yet so delicious!

Potatoe rounds , layered with bacon , ham , tomatoes , ages cheese , oregano , parsley herbs , etc.... ( about 3 layers ). 

 

The cured ham with the bacon <_< 

 

Now i know what will be my dinner next week

Koukouvagia has a special software that sends her an email as soon as anyone posts the word "potatoe" on this forum. :D 

 

I, for one, would love to hear about your recipe as well Kaique. When I read your description I thought "chicken stock", now I see that Kouk' was thinking "milk/cream", I'd love to hear it. If I never do, I may just have to try both!!! :lol:

You know me so well. And I love the way you spelled potatoe which in my heart I believe is the way it should be spelled. I do love potatoes and I notice that I usually stop eating when the potatoes on my plate are gone no matter what's left.

Sounds like my wife (except replace the word "potatoes" with "food" :lol:).

A very interesting topic ! Thanks for all that tips !

 

My turn :

 

When i dont know what to cook, i make a speed version of risotto.

 

Oignons and mushrooms in a pan with some olive oil.

Then i add round rice (i dont if its the correct word).

 

I let it cook 3-4 minutes then i add some water and a stock cube.

I wait 10 minutes that the rice absorbs the water and i add water one more time. 10 minutes later, it's done ! 

I just have to grat some parm.

 

And you can use a lot of ingredients in that risotto : tomatoes, chorizo,...that's a good way to finish all that you have in your fridge.
