Swiss chard lamb bake... aka basically spanikopita with meat (though we're using pork tonight because we have a LOT of it) and pumpkin pie made with home-roasted fairy tale pumpkin.

(ignore the weird bit of dough on the cooling rack under the pie... that was a spare piece my wife didn't make into a leaf)

It's still a week away and it's not 'dinner' but I'll be making a Red Velvet Cheesecake as my wife's birthday cake this year.

"fire" roasted red pepper tomato soup.
1 red bell pepper
6 medium globe tomatoes blanched without skin
1 large onion
6 cloves garlic
1 cup of stock of your choice
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Roast red pepper till the skin is burnt wrap it in a paper towel for 5 minutes and then rub it's skin off and remove steams and stems.
Chop the pepper tomatoes onion and put them in a oven safe pan like a dutch oven top with the garlic, olive oil, and salt.
Roast in a 400 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
Carefully remove the veggies to the bowl of a blender and purely smooth.
Add the stock and pulse to combine,
heat the soup in the same pan.
season to taste.

Next dipping croutons for dipping,
Ciabatta bread
Olive oil
Parmesan cheese
Cut the bread on the bias about 1/4 inches thick
Drizzle bread with oil
Top with cheese
Put under the broiler until cheese is melted and bread is crisp and crunchy.

All in all it is a fairly good autumnal lunch.

Guess what substitutes for bacon in one of my favourite medieval dishes? Shrimp!

Brussels sprouts ("Take littul caboches, that are called minces...")
Shrimp (bacon in the original)
cooking oil, butter
lemon juice.

Fry the shrimp in the oil and/or butter. Cut the bigger sprouts in half; fry them in with the shrimp. When half-done, splash a bit of lemon juice on, then a few tablespoons of water and put the lid on quickly (to steam-finish them). Serve with a smile.
