What a coincidence! I have had kefir too. It was INSTEAD of dinner,though:)

I suspect we have more in common than just kefir;)

the thread is opportune indeed

have I miss anything? Is that new hot diet - kefir or kefirless?
:agree: :confused: :bookworm:

Too lazy to cook... Anyone wants to cook for me?
Or go and buy at least kefir?

mmm.... last night: I made BBQ grilled Thai chicken with ginger, lime and spicy pepper, with side of coconut milk soup with lemon grass and prawns, accompanied by touch of jasmine rice and a nice cold beer. I remember a time when it was impossible to find many such ingredients here in Moscow. Now it's quite easy! Beats kefir anyway...

Yeah, I'll cook for you when I get some shopping in, but no meat for you, (or fish)!

Oh, I'm not going to die tonight... What's on the menu?

Hey LNM, when are you going to cook for me then?? Last time I was at your place the words "guest chef" seemed to cunningly pop out of your mouth and before I knew it I was making dinner!!;)

Right, I'm off to the gym!

To answer the question of what did I have for dinner last night, I can't quite remember...if the other two guys kept the reciept from the bar we were in, I'm sure they can tell you!:D (Only joking, I just won't write it because it was overtly unhealthy in composition and it would make me feel guilty!).

Tatiana cat

DPG, don't be jealous...

Haha! Chef professional is going to cook for me... I'm so lucky today!

<<Chef professional is going to cook for me>> (Adjective before noun Tatiana: professional chef)!:rules:

That's why he asked me to cook him dinner that time - I'm better at it than he is...just don't tell him I said so!!;)

It was a long weekend with even longer than average list of gastronomic crimes, so tonight there will be only long island with a long lost university friend and a fruit salad.

lochnessmonster

For some reason, I woke up at 5am DESPERATE for a slice of chocolate cake, and that, is exactly what was waiting for me in the fridge. One of those moments when you don't think of calories, tooth decay or the consequences, but just wolf it down without a word.

The main 'meal' for dinner last night was four bottles of red wine, which now kind of explains the chocolate cake craving.

DPG, rightly put in your grammatical place by the Cat. The shame of it! Cat, you won't die, I promise, but you WILL have to wash the dishes afterwards - deal?

Yeah, I thought the same thing, but didn't want to mention it. If you ARE going to eat your long lost uni friend, then I recommend some mustard, ginger, garlic and mayonnaise to kind of disguise the flavour a bit..Will you have an over big enough? .Enjoy

Fu, fuuuuu, you guys destroyed my make up TOTALLY! Have this wasteful habit of crying while laughing.

No human flesh for tonight, I am on a compulsory diet for a time being.

no lots of hot water, but you'll have to supply your own fairy, sponge and candles

Yes, but in these cases, 'professional' is the noun and 'tennis/golf/swimming/health' are the adjectives.

Best regards

Do it my way and I don't need to have had a former life - what am I...posting and moderating from beyond the grave in another dimension or something...?

What did you have for dinnner last night other than wine and chocolate cake by the way? Which parts of the bird did you nibble? (just to get back on thread!).;)

Guest777
15-06-2004, 19:16
sushi for dinner! that's my answer to stressful days in the office :)

lochnessmonster
15-06-2004, 19:32
No bird nibbling please - I'm a vegetarian! But sometimes you KNOw when you JUST got to have a piece of chocolate cake and you will do ANYTHING for it - well, that's how I felt...And having som much wine didn't help me much, either.
Guest, sushi for dinner, good choice, if it's well made, that is. too many places around Moscow offer poorly-made sushi that is a complete waste of time and money...And absolutely bland. But enjoy!

I like Yakudza sushi and rolls... I think they are quite good and they deliver to where I live which is unusual :)

Fur burgers with all the trimmings and hair pie for dessert.

lochnessmonster
15-06-2004, 19:47
HA! Yakuza rolls, first time I've heard of them, but they just sound funny. Maybe you should be watching 'Kill Bill pt 1' or something when you eat it?

Guest777
15-06-2004, 19:54
I've chosed another film for tonight :) But I might try Kill Bill later together with some spicey rolls :)

Guest, now I've got a question :eh: Where the heck do you live if the sushi delivery is unusual to you??:suspect: ;)

Never could get this sushi delivery thing by the way. I mean not that it's simple to make them yourself, but that's the fastest and easiest thing on Earth. Besides - almost free. All the spares are available in grocery stores. The only problem with home made sushi for me is that they never end ;)

lochnessmonster
16-06-2004, 09:16
Well, I'm dying to know how the film was...And did it go well with the sushi or not. Some films are just made for pizza and beer, others for Indian and beer, and others for peanuts, chips (and beer).

I live in the south of Moscow... most of sushi places don't deliver there.

The film was brilliant :) But sushi was the wrong choice! I'll have another go on Friday... I might try beer this time

Sauteed chicken livers w/ onion gravy + 2 bottles of Lykhny + Sluzhebny Roman on the DVD = last night's great combination for me!

when you say rare, do you mean 'undercooked' or do you clearly mean, extra special and amazing?
Ah yes, Harry Potter - part 3, right? Tricky one. We've moved on from the early years, and can't have things like spotted dick or jam roly poly. Got to be a bit more sophisticated and magical, with an air of seriousness about it. A few grilled lizards and a couple of spiders in the mix for sure, and chuck in some bats, mice, toads and a slice of chocolate cake. We're getting there, let me think about it...

a beefburger - literally the burger, no bun or salad etc.. lol
two yummy low-cal yoghurts. mmm

What definition would you prefer? Basically, rare = unusual.

Well done!
I'd definitely go for a piece of a 'rare' bat. I've just remember 2 idioms with 'a bat'.

have bats in the belfry = to be crazy
like a bat out of hell = very fast

Cat, are you telling me rare = unusual ?I think our resident pedant professor of grammatologicalousness DPG would have something to offer on that. And no, I'm not rare as in unusual, but rare as in unique, extraordinary and quite literally amazing...

How do you think I have survived for so long? But we can all do with a little extra help from out friends from time to time, right? Anyway, we are losing track of this thread, I've just made a fabbie Greek salad, with a load of Feta and pine nuts with some of those sun-blushed tomato thingies, just GORGEOUS, chuck.

Easily? you must be kidding... this thing requires shopping for groceries... so it's out of the question!

lochnessmonster
16-06-2004, 19:13
Do you mean you never shop for groceries? In Moscow especially where you have so many 24-hour supermarkets all over the place. Well, not easily, i agree, but certainy a lot easier than many other places I've lived in. Oh well, I'll just have to save you some...
