NOVEMBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

NOVEMBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

Did you think I had fallen down a rabbit hole?  Well I sort of did.  We’re in the middle of renovating the main bathroom in our little home by the sea.  It’s not very big, this bathroom, but when we take stock of what’s being done, it’s not too unlike building a small home.  Tiling, electrical, plumbing, some drywall, painting, wall papering, all new fixtures and decor bits.  I’m not sure why it has interfered with blogging really because my…

OCTOBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

OCTOBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

Hi all you Galley Kat Peeps. I thought that this month instead of a collection of your most viewed recipes, I’d re-post my favourite chowder recipes. Last week’s post of Fisherman’s Stew was one of your most searched of my little galley recipes this month (you can find that recipe here). Is it maybe because the time of year with changing leaves, crisp cool days and fall harvest has you hungry for some easy belly warming soups, stews and chowders?…

EASY FISHERMAN’S STEW

EASY FISHERMAN’S STEW

We recently took a vacation from our little home by the sea to visit Cape Breton and the beautiful Cabot Trail.  Fall….in my opinion…. is the best season in Nova Scotia.  Crisp cool air and oh those spectacular turning leaves! Our final meal before returning home was at a small quirky little restaurant in Louisbourg.  Actually it was the only restaurant open as being a mainly tourist town, many businesses had closed shop for the season.  But even if there…

SWEET POTATO LENTIL STEW

I have a tasty dish for your Meatless Monday, Galley Peeps. It took next to no time in the pressure cooker. Or for those of you lucky enough to own an Instant Pot, you will barely have time to set the table. This recipe is great on days when you don’t have a lot of time to cook but want something hearty to fill your belly. It makes a generous 4 servings, keeps well refrigerated for 5 days and freezes…

BRAZILLIAN COD FISH STEW

BRAZILLIAN COD FISH STEW

Desperately needing some fish.  After all the moving stuff and at times not so healthy eating I really felt like something fresh from the sea.  Afterall we’re now living just a few paces from St-Margaret’s Bay and some of the freshest harvest from the sea so tonight is the night. Some sautéed  veggies… Seasonings and coconut milk… Add the marinated fish… And you’ll be ready to dine.   BRAZILLIAN COD FISH STEW   Print Author: Galley Kat Serves: 4 servings…

GREEK LAMB STEW (pressure cooker version)

GREEK LAMB STEW (pressure cooker version)

As some of you know we have been homeless for the past few months.  Our condo in Montreal sold and closed the 12th October.  All our wordly possessions were packed into an 8’x8’x16’ POD moving container which is now waiting for delivery this coming week. During the transition of closing in Montreal and closing here in Nova Scotia we have been staying with my daughter, son-in-law and their two kidlings.  I’m getting to my point…really I am… So, one day…

LA GARBURE – #15 of 44 FRENCH CLASSICS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

LA GARBURE – #15 of 44 FRENCH CLASSICS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

Back at it, picking away at my 44 French Classics. So many of the South-western French recipes on the list are basic stews with varying ingredients. For this next one, I found many recipes of the same name but the meat ingredients seemed to vary. The common elements were duck legs, cabbage, and were heavy on the root vegetables. It’s basically known as a peasant stew. The following is my attempt at reproducing what I imagine it would taste like…

CHICK PEA, SAUSAGE and GOAT CHEESE SKILLET

CHICK PEA, SAUSAGE and GOAT CHEESE SKILLET

Captain and the Kat aren’t the only able-bodied chefs in our galley.. During my son Luke’s recent visit, I had him help prepare our evening meal. Always eager to give a hand, he jumped right in, donning his favourite apron. He did a marvelous job browning the sausage…         …adding fistfuls of spinach…         …stirring in the chick peas…   …and dotting the finished product with morsels of creamy goat cheese. This may not…

POT-AU-FEU – #14 of 44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

‘Tis the time to revisit my “44 French Classic Meals You Need to Try Before You Die” (modified for my tiny Galley kitchen of course) Literally ‘pot on fire’ Pot-au-Few is a traditional French beef stew made with beef marrow bones and root veggies, which brings me to another thought I had for a series of posts… (I do love series don’t I?) Seasonal Eating and this post fits in nicely into the month of November, with chilly winds howling…
