By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

What are you eating now? What have you eaten? What did you eat? Talking about food is so much fun (makes your mouth water). Share with the forum about what you have had for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack.

    For lunch I had a traditional Keralan spicy Syrian fish curry with aubergine cooked in coconut with rice. It was delicious. Keralan cuisine must be one of the finest if not best in India.

    It has been a long time ago that I had spaghetti for dinner, so I really enjoyed my spaghetti today and of course it was homemade. :)

    I had a somewhat unusual mismash of foods for dinner tonight. I ordered fish kebab and naan, and a pineapple raita. I started with a water melon juice and then went on to down a lemon soda too as I was still thirsty. This all came to the pricely sum of 220IRs or £2.10, so the wallet was as content as the stomach.

    Chilli toast (cheese with chilli) and a chocolate milkshake.

    Me - nothing. Hubby - a big bag of crisps!

    I'm going veggie way today I think.
    So it will be hot cooked rice with fried tofu and chili sauce and steamed chinese vegetable and it will be tasty, that's for sure. =D>

    I don't know what it's called but it's like a cold noodle that is then flavoured with a chilli pickle, some soy sauce and a garlic and vingar mixture. It seems to have travelled far. I first came across it in Yunnan, then in Kathmandu, and now in the Tibetan settlement in south India.

    Do you have pictures of it @mheredge?
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Today the dinner was spaghetti with tomato sauce.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,105 mod
    Lunch was cauliflower in a chilli sauce. It was served by the street and was delicious.
  • for lunch, i had some vegetable

    I had tsampa for breakfast this morning. This is barley flour that is eaten mixed with hot milk or tea, and anything else that you might want to throw in. I had it with some dry cheese and apple, and a bit of sugar. It's a very typical breakfast disheaten by TTibetans.
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,180 mod
    I've never used barley I think.
    You don't have to cook the flour?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,105 mod
    Nope, just use it as it comes @april.

    For lunch or dinner, you can cook it with water if you want. But then usually this is served instead of rice (poor man's rice) with vegetable curry. This is popular in the mountains in Nepal where rice doesn't grow. It's similar to polenta.

    Traditional British dish @Pryfllwyd. Tonight I'm having a typical Tibetan meal of thukpa, a vegetable-pasta soup that's a meal in itself.
  • amatsuscribbleramatsuscribbler Posts: 2,213 mod
    Eating tonight with lovely people. Don't know what it will be though!
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,180 mod
    I'm eating roasted chicken wings and salad and french fries.
  • amatsuscribbleramatsuscribbler Posts: 2,213 mod
    Well I was right! It was a brill evening. I had 'Old Spot' hot pot. Old Spot is a breed of pig, so it was a pork hot pot. I haven't eaten pork for a long time but it was a very good hot pot. Oh- and for pudding I had ginger pud and custard. But I couldn't eat it all!!

    Ohhh @Amatsu, how could you? Poor old Spot the pig!

    Breakfast this morning was kedgeree without the smoked haddock. It was very good.
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,180 mod
    I'm going to eat Chicken Massala today.
    I'll use a ready to use seasoning mix, but last time it was a bit to spicy actually.
    So ......... wait and see.

  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,105 mod

  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,180 mod
    I think it's grilled corn on the cob @Helvio.
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    You can be right, and the corn was super. :D
