Wednesday was the middle day between the two diet days and we couldn’t decide exactly what to fix so we made the lamb burgers because Diane felt like having meat; however, my suggestion of Russian Meatballs with mustard sauce did not go down as well with her as it had with me. Her lamb burger with a slice of Haloumi on a Turkish bun tasted wonderful: that and a couple of glasses of beer completed a superlative meal.
On Thursday I returned to the kitchen making a very good, I’ve repeated it enough, Diet Day Orange Roughy with tomatoes and mushroom. I chop the tomatoes indiscriminately and add them to sliced mushrooms in the bottom of a medium baking dish over which chopped shallots have been sprinkled. I add heated stock and bake until the fish is done, about 15 minutes.
With the fish Diane roasted a baking pan of cut vegetables. I made a simple salad but I forgot that the salad was supposed to be dietary after I had already added some halved green olives. We enjoyed two glasses of box white wine and so a lovely evening was passed in our dear suburb.
