Since the garden came in we have been alternating between green beans with potatoes and onions and sausage....and squash casserole with ham,all from the garden(had to buy the sausage and ham).Take out chicken ocasionally....Now we are having okra ,tomatoes with onions cooked with sausage.All from the garden. As a side sweet banana pepper stuffed with cheese or with dip,You cant beat home cooking with fresh carden vegetables.

you are right there texasfarmer!  there is nothing more delicious than veg picked from your own garden.   

i don't eat pork, but the banana pepper stuffed with cheese sounds interesting.  what kind of cheese do you use?  do you bake them as is or coat and fry them?

i can have them along with the beans/onions/potatoes that spring suggested.  that would be a heck of a meal!

ya know what i love about your dinner postings pete?  that i have to hit the net to try to figure out what the heck you are eating...lol.  you have such a wide variety of things you make.  as a girl who like to look stuff up...it keeps it interesting.  :)

so from what i read, you had a lentil curry sort of dish (web said also has coconut, but you did not mention) with thin garlic wafer sort of things.  the tea looks interesting.  black tea with gum leaves?  how does it taste?

G'day Woodchip,
     You are pretty spot on your research , The billy tea is hot, strong & black ,& it's  a bit like our vegemite, it's an acquired taste ,we only use gum leaves when in the bush & boiling the billy over an open  fire  for the hot water , its  to reduce the Smokey flavor &  it adds a bit of interest. Once you have the billy can  on a rolling boil the tea leaves are added & steeped for a few minutes , Then the billy is spun at arms length, a bit like an aircraft  propeller, for a few seconds or so , this is  to settle the tea leaves to the bottom of the billy, before pouring the tea  this manuver  takes a bit of practice to build confidence,( my Father had me do it with cold water till I got it right as a kid ,about 55 odd years ago} or you could get scalded . Dahl is as you said ,is  made with red lentils ,vegies , coriander ,  curry & other herbs & spices, it's  made using coconut milk  & stirring in some coconut cream just before serving ,at least, that's how we do it ,Pappadams are more like a crisp bread  about 5 inches across, they are  hard at first but you flash fry them in oil or nuke them for a minute in a microwave ,then they turn round, flatish & crispy, you can even use them like a spoon just like in India, if you want. The only problem with this dish is your south wind gets going after a few hours, but geez its sure tastes  nice.
                      Regards Pete

thanks for clarifying tazzy!

my future son in law came to visit yesterday and we had a big turkey dinner.  i had gotten a frozen turkey on sale after mothers day.  i made turkey, green bean casserole, mashed red skin potatoes, peas and asparagus.  my daughter got a little crazy with the garlic on the asparagus, but it was still pretty good.  the best part...tonight we will have leftovers...no cooking!
