home-cooked meals

grocery shopping at Great is my one true indulgence, and today i bought 2 rib-eye steaks, foie-gras, baby asparagus, oyster mushroom, cream, cut melons, paper-thin san daniele ham (so expensive!), tomatoes and an apple.

for dinner i served: pan-fried foie-gras on a bed of poached apples and balsamico with toasted whole wheat bread, followed by broiled rib-eye (marinated in red wine, rosemary and crushed black pepper) with creamed mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, blanched asparagus and a red wine shallot sauce.

tomorrow for a snack i'll eat the san daniele with the melons.

i realized both meals, for two, costs a mere HKD375! had i been tamad and we decided to go to SOHO, we would've spent more than double.

so my indulgent Great shopping turned out to be tipid, after all.

restos make so much money, no?

but then, we had dinner in a brightly-lit dining area with Lion King on the TV and the dining table resembling a home office. sometimes ambience does count.

what did you eat this week? anything interesting or new?

We had Pizza Box for dinner last night. Cost us $122 for a large pizza, spaghetti, 6 chicken skewers and 3 servings of tomato veggie soap. What a deal! Sam loved sucking on the crust. But the skewer was average and I'm scared to try the soup. Wish I could cook as good as you Dawn! Hmm... I think I need to start looking at new cookbooks for inspiration.
