    RE: Dinner time

    She wants a recipe lol

    ORIGINAL: tommygun32

    Tonight was a left over make over.....

    Mac and Cheese Bolognese bake....

    Used up some bolognese sauce from the weekend, boiled up some macaroni, grated some cheese, made a bechemel cheese sauce and went for it. This is a family fav.

    Served it with a fresh mozzarella and tomato salad with a side of garlic bread.

    Sorry, only remembered to take the pic after dinner...oh well, now you also know what I'm having for lunch for tomorrow.

    Edit: What did you end up doing with the beet root?

    RE: Dinner time

    Ahhh...the beetroot. I ended up wrapping them in foil and baking them for about an hour. Half of them I sliced up and used in salad and the other half I made a beetroot soup. I was quite surprised. I guess it helped the flavor as it was organic. Very nice.

    OK....Mac bake:

    I had about a 2 cups of leftover bolognese sauce.

    Boiled up about 2 to 2 1/2 cups of small elbow macaroni.

    Grate about 2 cups of sharp cheddar.

    For the cheesy bechemel sauce, get a sauce pan on medium heat. Add 2 TBS butter and let it melt, add 2 TBS all purpose flour and saute while stirring constantly, it'll get thick, cook for about 5 minutes until you get the raw flour smell/taste out. Now add some milk while stirring (about 1 & 1/2 cups). Now use a whisk and get it nice and smooth while continuing to heat. Should take on the consistency of thick butter milk to pancake batter....something like that. The longer you let it cook, the thicker it will get. If it's too thick, just add some more milk. When it's where you want it, add some fresh grated nutmeg, lots of cracked black pepper and a nice pinch of salt. Now gradually add a cup of of the grated cheddar, slowly, while continuing to stir. It will take a while to to get it to melt completely into the sauce. At first it will look like a bad fondue, but give it some time.

    OK....when the mac is done (about 5 minutes if it's 6 minute pasta....it will keep cooking, so a little underdone is good) drain it. Put a third of the pasta in a good sized baking dish (like the one in the pic I posted). Pour a third of the sauce evenly over the mac, now add a third of the meat sauce, and repeat with mac, sauce and meat sauce. Don't overfill the baking dish. Now top it with the other 1 cup of grated cheddar.

    Stick in a pre-heated oven at 350f (180c) for about 30 minutes or so. Keep your eye on it after 20 minutes to make sure the top doesn't get too dark. Let it rest for about 10 minutes after you take it out of the oven.

    Note ** make sure when you pull out the baking dish you put it on a a cloth or hot pad.

    RE: Dinner time

    No pics of food tonight....maybe later....but I did pull the trigger on this one. Originally about 200 bucks, but I picked this one up at about 50 bucks. It was the last one in stock and it was the display model.

    Magnetic carousel knife holder.

    RE: Dinner time

    Yah, I understand what you're saying Fahrt, but I've never bought a 'set' of knives. I have all kinds that I've picked up along the way and the only 'block' I've found before had a bunch of silicone threads/straws in it and you'd slide all your knives into this tight set of straws. They started to fail pretty soon.

    The other thing I had (and my favorite) is a basic magnetic strip that goes on the kitchen wall, however, you need to screw that into place and I'm not destroying the kitchen tiles in my rented apartment .

    I'll post a couple more pics of it later while it's empty.

    RE: Dinner time

    Hey, if it works it works, ya know? I can see where you are coming from though! Something like this would be cool for us but the only single knives we have ever bought have been the few overpriced Japanese ceramic blades I have bought for my fiancee over time.

    RE: Dinner time

    Here's another couple of shots. My collection and the carousel while empty. It stands 17 & 1/2 inches tall and although my biggest knives poke out the top a bit, the magnets are more than strong enough to hole them.

    In the shot with the knife stand, you can see the nice stile work on the back splash. That's why I don't want to drill into it. I'm happy with this. It does what it says it will do.

    I can't express how happy I am to have found these gorgeous little babies!!

    Fresh ORGANIC Portuguese style pork chorizo sausages. They're swimming in some beer at the moment.

    They're not cheap....but hey....to find something like this out here, I'll drop a few coins for it.

    Nice backsplash. How do you like that stovetop? I have had electric in the past and hated it, gas is where it's at!

    RE: Dinner time

    Absolutely HATE the electric but I have no choice. In Dubai, there are no gas lines running anywhere. Nothing is centralized. It's all done by individual tanks/barrels of LPG. And where I live, they aren't allowed. [&o]

    These things like to explode every once in a while, especially if installed incorrectly. I'll try and take a pic of what I'm talking about and post it.

    It took a while, but I've have learned how to cook with this beast.

    Here's tonight's finished product. Served with some nice crusty bread and a side salad.

    RE: Dinner time

    It DID help! Haha I HATE tomatoes! Although oddly enough, I will eat catsup, smooth tomato sauce, tomato soup etc but when it comes to tomatoes or pieces of them, I just cannot do it. Some strange texture thing I have. Thinking about doing something tonight with this freezer bag of cube steaks I've got, but at the rate it is going, we might just feast on these (&^# cats! Gahhh!!!

    RE: Dinner time

    This has got to be one of the easiest yet most satisfying dish I make. And what's really great is that you can put whatever you have lying around into it.

    This version has mushrooms, chili, garlic, salami, olive oil, pecarino cheese and of course the spaghetti.

    Get a pot of salted water on the boil and drop the pasta in. This one is Spaghettini #3 and takes 6 minutes.

    While that's going, heat a big frying pan up, add olive oil and saute the mushrooms. Once they're pretty well softened I add the garlic and freshly chopped hot chili. After about 30 seconds...if the timing is right, I pull out the pasta and throw it in the pan with some of the boiling water. Add a good glug of EVOO or EVO Chili Oil and the salami and toss that around. Dump into a big serving dish and top with the fresh grated cheese. I also happened to have some fresh oregano leaves so I sprinkled that over the dish last.

    RE: Dinner time

    And a Happy Easter to you too Fahrt.

    So....here's the deal. I love a good Ruben's Reuben Sandwich. I also love a good Patty Melt. And I love a good burger......[&:]

    Unfortunately, there are a number of ingredients from all three dishes that I will NEVER be able to get out here.....sooooo.....I'm going to try and marry these three into one sandwich tonight....and add a SoCal twist to it.

    Pics to come later.

    Proper seeded Rye bread is not available here, but I can get rustic Rye flower bread, we start with that.

    Burger input.....2/3 & 1/3 mix of beef and pork patty, BBQ Mesquite grilled.

    Reuben input....sour kraut & thousand island dressing.

    SoCal input....pepper jack cheese (didn't have any Swiss cheese).

    Patty Melt input....grilled like a grilled cheese sandwich.

    I impressed myself...

    Here's what I was talking about regarding the gas cylinders that are used for cooking.

    Unless you're using electric....you'll be getting your cooking gas via a tank delivered by these lovely red trucks.
