I am just going to try the recipe again and use my brain instead as just following the recipe to the letter.

we have the best vegetarian butcher ever...butcher..het butchers Lupine and Soya :lol:

have you been a vegetarian long? Me not so long..like 4 years or so. Feel so much better (not as a person, but healthwise) and the vegetarian butcher makes it easier on my friends, because their meatlike products realy taste like the real deal and have the same structure http://www.devegetarischeslager.nl/shop ... lager-lijn

I was originally a vegetarian from 1998 - 2000.

Recently I've returned to vegetarianism since November 2012 and haven't looked back. Even when I did eat meat, I never ate that much and I never ate fish...EVER!! I don't miss meat at all. And I don't even really look for the "fake meat" products. Very few appeal to me anyway. My favorite food in the World is Thai food!! I could eat that stuff in my sleep, it's so GOOD!!

that Yakitori does look yummy! is it Japanese?
and I love Thai food too!

Still drinking my green goddess drinks.
But it takes a lot of ingredients to keep stocked.
Probably funny when I only need to buy the cucumber. :P

Nothing extravagant here for Christmas dinner: steak, smashed potatoes and salad.
But I'd bought fresh calamari and breaded and sauteed it. It actually was sooo delicious.

I also baked about 5 batches of Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies this season, and 4 loaves of banana bread.
And I made a great Artichoke dip (I think I posted a pic before).

Our Christmas here is quite traditional so on the 24th (dinner): boiled cod fish, with boiled potatoes and boiled vegetables in general. Chocolate mouse, Christmas pudding, Bolo-Rei, Sonhos, Coscorões (these last 3 are cakes made here and I don't think their names have translation) and fruit.

25th December (lunch) : Stuffed Turkey with french fries and raisins rice. The stuffing is a family recipe... I would post pictures but I don't have any (and the turkey was 9kg!) add all the sweets and cakes again.

...and that's why I'm still not hungry! :lol:

So, this is what I made on December 31st...

Smoked salmon & Avocado rolls...

Gouda & walnut cookies...
Image

entrée: Greek style cheesecake...
Image
Image

This time I made something quite different for the dessert... At first, it was a real disaster... but I fixed it! so I tried a Vienna Cake...
Image
Image

And, finally, chocolate & salted butter caramel tart... cut into small pieces...
Image

And my mum cooked sea food Gratin and a leg of lamb.

I love Mexican food, and here's how to make the meat for homemade tacos:
Image
Take chicken or steak, slice into pieces and roll in a dry garlic salt, cumin and cayenne pepper mix.
Sautee' in a pan of a light layer of olive oil (cook thoroughly for chicken, steak can be pink)
Cut slices into smaller pieces for tacos. Add cheese, tomato, lettuce, guacamole and salsa.

my special salsa = plum tomatoes, cilantro, red onion (if desired), lemon juice, garlic salt, cumin and cayenne pepper.
I actually chop a bunch of tomatoes and throw into the blender. Then and add chunks of cilantro, onion, the dry seasonings and a squeeze of lemon.
I chop/pause/chop in the blender :shock: (drain any water that separates in the bowl)

The key to good salsa is having a good ratio for taste
