    Tuna Napolitana Pasta for my daughter.

    Chicken Satay Skewers, Satay Sauce and Chips for my husband.

    Moroccan Carrot and Lentil Soup for me.

    I feel like a short order cook, some days! 😂

    Holiday Season "Cleansing" - Cabbage/Vegetable soup.

    Taking a step back from the brink after a couple weeks of very rich holiday eating with this soup.

    There's probably about 500 recipes on YouTube or elsewhere for this type of soup. My approach tonight: red cabbage, carrots, celery, green peppers, onions, garlic, canned no-salt diced tomatoes and flavorings (very moderate salt, black pepper, a few shakes of cayenne, Italian herbs mixture), chicken stock (no salt).

    Very good, flavor-wise, but family consensus is that I'll buzz the soup to make a chunky, but thick final result for leftovers with an immersion blender. As it is, right now, can't beat the color. Wonder what it'll look like after blending? There's enough here for the family for 2-3 days.

    Pictures:
    1. as prepared.
    2. done cooking (but not blended).

    Paccheri alla Scarpaniello. This is a Naples specialty. It's made with a bigger tubular pasta--could use Mezza Maniche or Tortaloni. I made a chunky tomato sauce with Roma tomatoes, EVOO, garlic and pepper flakes. When the pasta was al dente, I poured on the sauce and added grated smoked cheese and fresh basil. I gave it a good stir. When it's on the plate (or bowl as we do it here) sprinkle freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano on top. Some add more pepper flakes too.

    Just got done with pierogi because meatless Mondays

    I'm of Polish decent--100% and have never heard of meatless Mondays. We always had meatless Fridays growing up. Since you've mentioned it a couple of times, could you explain meatless Mondays to me? Thanks.

    Ah, thanks--I'd never heard of it. We do our meatless day on Friday and have been for a very long time, so we're good.

    I'm about to cook another Christmas dinner with a girlfriend. She has Christmas with her Vietnamese family so feels she misses out on a proper British Christmas dinner. Our NYE ritual is to cook Christmas dinner at her house. We are doing Dickensian roast goose. Keeping it simple with sides of roast carrots, sauteed greens, roast potatoes, gravy and commercial cranberry sauce. Coffee pavlova for dessert.

    Second Christmas dinner at my girlfriend's. Roast goose, roast potato, roast maple and harissa carrots, sauteed chard, gravy, lingonberry compote. My girlfriend's small son with a large goose drumstick. Dessert was cappucino pavlova that I overbeat so the meringue stayed spongey.

    For New Years Eve I made the traditional lentils with sausage. The Italians believe that this dish is good luck and will bring money in the coming year. You are also supposed to have 9 courses to follow luck and tradition. This is what my husband's family in Rome always told me, however, they are originally from Southern Italy(Puglia) and have mixed the traditions.

    I am 100% Polish, born and raised. There is no such thing a meatless anything in our culture, but what we do have is fish Fridays :)

    Meatless mondays, for me, is simply being vegan one day a week. Nothing more to it but be even more creative in the kitchen using only vegan / vegetarian ingredients.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me. I thought I was missing something.
