Ideas for dinner?

March 24th, 2009 at 10:27 pm

Last night I made grilled garlic salmon with brown rice and a side of grilled veges (capsicum, eggplant, mushrooms, zucchini & squash).
Tonight I think I will make (thanks to ceejays suggestion) grilled cheese sandwhiches with an assortment of fillings. (I am thinking cheese & pineapple, cheese & tomato & beetroot, cheese & avocado...)
Any other ideas for the next few days? DF still hasn't connected the oven and I am not going to bother him about it for a few days because he has a lot of work on and has been working 12 hour days.
I have: a kettle, a sandwhich press/grill, a rice cooker (which also steams) and a blender.
I was thinking I could grill some veges and an egg and toss it through the rice to make a sort of 'un-fried rice'?

    Cheese and pineapple -- mmmm. That's my absolute favorite pizza topping, but I never thought to put it in a grilled cheese sandwich!

    the usual one is cheese pineapple and chicken - you can find it in a lot of cafes here - but i dont eat meat so i just do cheese and pineapple. its nice with sundried tomato as well.

    Easiest thing - paninis.

    Here is a simple one I make when I'm tired:

    A nice special bread (like a small flat semolina brick) that is made for paninis.
    To fill it: can of nice salmon mixed with a spoon or 2 of mayo plus pepper, maybe some onion. melt it with some low-moisture shredded mozzarella.

    I would rub a tiny bit of butter on the outside of the bread and grill the panini until it is hot and the bread crispy on the outside...
    It is not a vegetable meal - but it is a hot filling meal made without a stowe.

    I'm going to have to try it. Nika, your panini sounds pretty fabulous, too.

    I like mushroom, onion and sundried tomatoes in grilled-cheese sandwiches...mmm...

    You could do marinated, grilled portobellos with sides of rice and veggies (or eat them in burger buns with spinach, roasted red pepper and garlic aioli). My favorite marinade has balsamic vinegar, oil, spices, and I think some wine.
