I do most of the cooking in my house, because I'm a far pickier eater than my wife is. Seems like a similar dynamic.
I will not in any shape or form willingly eat offal. Yes, I am picky eater. Yes, I have tried Surströmming. It tasted marginally better than it smelled. To quote one of my former colleges "I can understand that you sometimes mess up whe cooking, but doing it again and thinking it is good?"
We’re hosting a small (@10 person) gathering tomorrow, most of the invitees having been fully vaxxed.
I’m doing a caprese salad, a charcuterie board, corn macque choux, and a larger version of that cavitappi shrimp scampi I did last week. I made a cake, which is chilling in the fridge right now.
One aunt is bringing greens and possibly other stuff. Another is bringing a ham, deviled eggs and maybe Mac & cheese.
It would depend on cheese/veg ratios and serving portions, but it sounds like the core of a good main or side dish. Maybe a shareable appetizer.Thinking of doing a dish with Haloumi as a base, and then some of quickly stir-fried veggies. Do I need to pair that with rice/pasta, or would it be filling enough as it is? Any suggestions?
Once I make it, I will post pictures and a recipe of sorts if it turns out ok.
