Sounds authentic! Authentically Aussie, not Chinese, but I remember as a kid eating chicken chow mein that would be unrecognizable to anyone even 1/16th Chinese. :)

Oh yeah, definitely authentic Aussie, suburban, working class mum food! And nothing wrong with that. Hey Jeff, if I can get the original recipe from my mum I'll post it. Maybe you could make a vat of it for pumpkin one of those weeks when you run away from home. :x :twisted:

I seem to do more interesting things with leftovers!
So I picked up a cloth on the bench and... found two sheets of my pasta left over and left to dry.
Of course they were dry and broke up as I picked it up. Looked actually fun, so I roughly broke it all up into pieces 2-6 mm, cooked them and mixed the with a cup of leftover spicy tomato vegetable soup and sautéed sliced mushrooms and the grated parmigiana that was lurking as well. Grilled a steak and sliced it over the top. Yummmm

I think you recreated a famous Italian pasta that's made by breaking up dried pasta sheets into irregular pieces, Barb! I wish I could think of the name of it right now.

Robin, the name is "maltagliati". dried pasta dough broken into pieces of different size.

Thanks, Heinz! "Malfatti" kept coming to mind, but that's Sicilian and more like misshapen gnocchi.

Yes, maltagliati is what happens to the crumbs at the bottom of a box of lasagna!

We had the older daughter and her new boyfriend over on Saturday night, so I made boeuf bourguignon using a streamlined version of a James Peterson recipe. Had that with mashed potatoes and roasted cauliflower. We had plenty left for dinner last night. Tonight, the younger daughter decided she wanted to roast up some chicken, so we're doing that and having it with leftover mashed potatoes (I made way too much of that on Saturday) and some quick fried shishito peppers for something green.

Fired up the grill again. Similar menu: swordfish, shrimp kabobs, filet mignon.

(Yes, I know, I know. I was making a mini Surf 'n' Turf for myself -- half portion kabobs, half portion filet -- but, gee whiz, is that a dull steak.)

My next effort, however, I think is going to be octopus. My fish store sells 2-3# bundles, already pounded. So I think I just need a red wine marinade and charcoal.

Whatever plans I had (not many :oops: ) went out the window when friends dropped by for a coffee after a weekend fishing trip. They kindly shared their bounty with us.
So we had a lovely whle bream baked with fennel followed the next night when we did fish tacos with the flathead fillets. Sooo good to have really fresh fish.

Dinner last night was Thai mahogany fire noodles. This batch came out particularly incendiary.
