Really been feeling like enchiladas but due to my lovely other halfs dietary requirements most flour products are out for a while... Welcome eggplant and lamb rolls with spicy smokey bbq sauce!

Had some leftover lamb shanks in the fridge, fried the meat up with onions, garlic, button mushrooms, parsley, lemon juice and a bit of "lamb jelly". Bbq sauce on the stovetop from canned tomatoes, spices, a bit of liquid smoke and chipotle adobo. Topped with grated cheese and served with some roasted broccoli and almond oil.

We invited our new landlord, who live upsrairs from us, down to dinner.

I made Hawaiian food.


Kalua pig and Cabbage, steamed white rice


Lomi Lomi Salmon


Limu Ahi Poke

They loved it!

YAY!

Oh and a couple of 6 packs of beer to round out the evening, 

we all had a great time.

I was so nervous that they wouldn't care for this, 

but they both said that they like to try different foods.

Bitter melon recipe was from Madhur Jaffrey's World of the East Vegetarian Cooking, soaked in salted water for 2 hrs, rinsed drained and patted dry before stir frying. Still bitter but I like the taste.

My husband loves bitter melon and cooks it often.

I stepped outside the zone today and made cauliflower pizza crust.  Yup a near 0 carb crust that turned out quite well and tasted great.  Sadly the only picture I got was out of the oven after the pre-bake.  It sucks being hungry when it's done - /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif

@Mike9  what kind of texture and thickness did that cauliflower crust end up being? I'm curious...my first time seeing a cauliflower pizza crust.

I pushsed it out @3/8" thick and the texture on the prebake was really good.  It felt dry enough, but being the first time I may have not squeezed enough water out, and my sauce came out of the freezer and may not have separated enough in time, but overall it was a worthwhile endeavor.

Pickle just added to the roll with the bacon & onion. Don't think the mustard plays a huge roll in the overall taste of the final dish. I wouldn't waste anything special on it.

Verdict: It's a keeper.

I concur. The mustard I used was pretty strong and came through a lot. Not too much to be overpowering, but still might want to tame it next time. I thought of being unconventional and adding bread crumbs to the mix? Good idea or blasphemy?

Also, I assume the spätzle was cooked in beef broth, but just wanted to confirm. Yes?
