In the irc I have noticed that people quite often leave the chat for a while to go and make or eat dinner, and I find it really interesting to hear what everyone's having for dinner. It's interesting to hear what people from so many different countries and of so many ages/situations etc cook for themselves (or have cooked for themselves).

So, what did you last have for dinner?

Usually on a Saturday I have take-away, but as my housemate isn't here instead I had to cook for myself. I couldn't decide what to have, but then realised I had lots of things sitting in my fridge that needed to be eaten. So I had stir-fried vegetables (green beans, carrots, red pepper, pak choi) with halloumi and pineapple in a kind of peanut/soy-sauce/coconut/plum sauce (basically just a random mixture of things I had in my fridge/cupboards). Anyway, despite being a meal I cooked to use up the things that needed eating up it was actually really tasty.

For pudding I am just going to have a yoghurt. No exciting cakes or tarts or pies or even ice-cream for me :(

How about you? What did you have?

I had Kentucky Fried Chicken. I was having dinner with my parents, so I picked some up on the way for them, too! I love visiting them during take-out night!

I had some chicken and LOADS of potato's baked in a herb and garlic sauce. It's just so creamy, and so nice cooking them in the sauce. Sounds kind of plain but the taste is just amazing.

I was going to order a pizza but I just eared up some pasta in the microwave instead.

My Dad made a veg stew with dumplings. Potato, carrot, parsnip, sweet potato etc. We don't normally have afters but somebody gave my Mum a massive bag of apples so she made this apple pudding thing. I didn't have any of that though, I had some of my secret Thornton's icecream stash.

probably going to frequent this thread a lot xD. Last night I took some corn, a can of tomato soup, and a little pasta and made a sort of spicy soup out of it, with some cheese on top. Came out a lot hotter then I thought it would, but tasted good.

I put chicken wings in an oven dish with a tin of chicken soup and sliced potato, and baked for a bout 3 hours so the chicken falls of the bone and had some rice with it. Spiced with a little chilli and garlic.

Leftover spaghetti casserole (baked) that I made last night, tossed salad and warm bread (no garlic). It was good both nights!

For lunch, I had ravioli and a Swedish meatball TV dinner.

For supper, I had hamburgers and corn.

I made a full Korean dinner - bulgogi, rice, kimchee, two different mung bean sprout salads, a seaweed salad, seasoned lotus root and a seasoned marinated cabbage. It was delicious, and a really easy recipe for bulgogi if anyone is interested.

Normally I cook something on the grill for Saturday night, but my wife and I were getting the house ready for Thanksgiving, so we thought we'd go simple. She wanted one of those Dijourno pizzas, so we had a 4 cheese pizza. I thought it was terrible. I'm used to real New York/New Jersey pizza. Anything short of that is crap as far as I'm concerned.

Snowed for the first time this winter this morning, so I made homemade hamburger stew and fresh cheddar cheese-basil biscuits for dinner. Wish you all could have been here to have some - Yum!

Homemade Chicken and Dumplings. My mother complained that I made extra dishes by even making the bread from scratch, but she wasn't whining when she found out just how delicious hot food is at the end of a cold day.

I feel your pain. Tell me if I can FedEx you a pizza sometime.

Honestly, if you want a good pizza, I've taken to making them myself. Roll out storebought dough into a square/circle/whatever, and toss that on the grill. Spray w/ olive oil. Cook on both sides until it's not quite the consistency of a bagel. Pull it off, top w/ tomato sauce/cheese/toppings. Throw that in a preheated 500 degree oven for about 5 minutes (or until the cheese is melty). Delicious!

As for my own cooking, lately, I've been really into making my own tomato sauces. I love pomodoro, but it's so simplistic that you can't buy it in stores. Heat a tb extra virgin olive oil, saute some pressed garlic, toss in a can of whole cooked tomatoes- preferably organic. Go to town with a potato masher on them, simmer for a while- maybe 10 minutes. Eat. It's amazing. From there, I've gotten more creative with later iterations. Pour in half a cup of white wine. Various seasonings. Clams and half and half for a red clam sauce. Can of tomato paste to make it into a more traditional tomato sauce. The possibilities are really endless, and I've got to say I'm really loving this better than jarred sauces.
