I'm trying something new tonight. I have some frozen tilapia, whole, as in with eyes, scales, fins, and a tail. Loosely following a suggestion online, I made a mix of chopped garlic, olive oil, wine, and cayenne. After making some slices into the side of the fish, I pushed in some of the garlic on each side and then tossed the mix over all of it. That didn't feel like enough, so I quickly peeled and sliced some fresh ginger, which I stuffed into the sides and the belly cavity. It's baking now. We'll see....

Yesterday I bought all the ingredients to make a pizza, was on my way home to make a surprise dinner. Halfway home, I suddely remember that our oven is temporary out of order, so... *facepalm*.

No pizza yesterday, but hopefully our oven gets fixed sooner rather than later.

That tilapia was horrid! The recipe was not the issue - it was the fish. Never again will I buy frozen whole tilapia!

We're making eggplant and tofu "three cup" for dinner. It's heavenly!

Am I the only one cooking around here? Please chime in - this thread used to be interesting and fun.

We made a curry the other day with eggplant. My boyfriend told me to use less of the chili powder than called for since my powder is an extremely hot one from Vietnam. Well, I halved it, but that was not enough. The dish turned out quite hot and we like hot food, but that was too much. I need to remember to use about 1/4 of that powder in recipes.

6/18/17 - Guess I'm the only one here. I made a chopped salad. Not sure why it's called "chopped". From what I can gather, it's a bit more dense in ingredients than a typical salad. In googling recipes, I found all kinds of "chopped" salads with different themes. I made mine from romaine lettuce, raddicchio, sun dried tomatoes, grape tomatoes, and grated carrots. Last night, we added blackened shrimp and today I made it with avocado and smoked cheddar cheese. I also made a sesame, soy sauce, and ginger honey dressing to go with it. Oh! And ice tea!

I hope someone joins in soon. This thread used to be a lot of fun.

Took a break until I find a good recipe. My father usually cooks during the week and somehow, he burnt the loaded baked potato pierogies last night. Today was a back to basics dish of angel hair with extra virgin olive oil and salt. I have been thinking of stir frying the red onion, broccoli and those peppers from the Dutch and Danish hot houses.

I redid the pasta dish, using a thicker than normal spaghetti and Himalayan sea salt. The salt I did at first was a special type of salt normally meant for popcorn. The Himalayan salt was much lighter in intensity of saltiness.

Still working on salad. I'd like to explore some more salads and dressings. This dressing I made recently is addictive, so I made it again. Tonight's salad was not chopped, but consisted of torn lettuce and escarole with chickpeas, red pepper, sun dried tomatoes, grape tomatoes, scallions, hard boiled egg, and avocado.

Well, from July onward, not only do I have responsibility over dishwashing (which I started in Late May), but I am also in charge of cooking for the family.

I recently made myself a simple stir fry out of that Danish hot house bell pepper and a quarter of a red onion. It taught me how to fry veggies.

I can brown ground beef, I can bake cookies, cupcakes and brownies, I obviously can boil, microwave and make emulsion, roll sushi, cook rice and I can attempt omelettes, but I don't crave them that often, usually around September that I enjoy a good bacon, cheddar and green onion omelette.

Sounds very nutritious. Do you like venison? As a vegetarian, I won't eat it and people have said it's a bit "gamey". I'm not sure what that means. It's weird how I never considered there would be deer in Australia. Did you buy this or hunt it yourself?

We had take out last night - spinach pizza. This particular place is known for it. I don't care for the rest of their pizzas because the crust is a bit like cardboard, but it works in the spinach pizza.

Made baked potatoes.

Although the taste, texture and doneness were perfect, I kind of went overboard taking the eyes and whatever resembled an eye out. The potatoes looked like Charlie Brown's ghost costume.

Baked mahi mahi soaked in margarita mix, then crusted with red pepper, chili powder, and paprika, topped with a tropical fruit salsa (kiwi, mango, red onion, pineapple, lime juice, garlic, and red pepper), paired with yellow rice with tomatoes and onions, a little taco salad, and (obviously) a big margarita to drink.

Then ice cream because it's literally 100 degrees out today.

I just made one of those the other day, although it wasn't pie, it was a Greek pie, or pita...spanikopita. Is that what you made? Spinach and cheese are such a winning combination.

We needed a pot luck dish for a couple of parties this weekend, so we made ratatouille.

I wrapped it up in Filo - I thought pita was the Turkish version. Spanikopita - yes, a version of that. I guess the name changes a bit all over the med. It's all delicious though.

I will be making ratatouille fresh in a few weeks time - when the aubergine, courgette and toms are ready in the garden and greenhouse.

The people I know of Greek decent call it pita and prounce it something like "pi-eh-ta". I think it just means the filo pastry. It's nothing like pita bread. A woman I know from Hungary makes a something similar where she creates a very thin dough, stretching it across a table. But that is a strudel.

How I envy you for your garden and greenhouse (not to mention your cooking talent). I rely on the grocery, where things are almost always in season. The warm crops come in from California and Mexico.

My reckoning of Greek food is similar to @VerDeTerre's -- a "pitta" would be a pie made with fillo (or phyllo, etc.) But there is also a Greek flatbread that we would call pita for sure. But as to what they call their pita-like flatbread, I don't know. It's pretty tasty though.

Currently eating a homemade salad consisting of spinach, romaine, tomato, quinoa, bbq jackfruit and topped off with a light balsamic dressing. The flavors work really well together.

Tea. Earl Grey...Ginger. Hot.

Tomorrow, I'm making cheddar broccoli soup for myself and my mother. I tend to make it thick so it can be what is essentially a loose dip for saltines. Then again, that's how I used to eat it as a kid.

Edit: Mother forgot and my father made her a caprese salad.

There's always dinner time.
