What's for Dinner at Your House?

Last night was shrimp scampi and spaghetti. Here is before plating -


and after -



I paired this meal with slices of rosemary infused bread and a wonderful Argentinian white wine I am trying for the first time. The grape is Torrontes and here is the description of the wine "Aromas of lemon, lime and pastry dusted with powdered sugar lead to a round palate with citrus-like acidity. Pineapple and melon flavors come with a touch of salt, while the palate feels full with a slight grip."


I used a cup of this wine to make my seafood stock by adding it to skillet of the shrimp shells sautéed in olive oil along with lots of garlic and some basil and scallions. Given the citrus notes of the wine it turned out to be the perfect choice for my shrimp scampi which had a healthy dose of lemon juice and some zest to top it off.

My wife and I made another excursion south to Jungle Jim's Int'l Foods the other day, so tonight we made a fry for supper. Fried egg, back rasher, black pudding, sauteed mushrooms, fried tomato, and cheddar cheese on a toasted bagel. Baked beans on the side. The first one tasted like another, so another I did.
We're having a few people over (5 as is the maximum allowed!) and we are doing a kind of buffet. The missus is currently preparing "sambal dang" a spicy Indonesian prawn stir fry. The prawns are fresh from the seafood counter this morning but my goodness they smell rank. Apparently they smell ok to her. How can anyone eat such stuff?? (I am not a seafood fan).
