“What to make for dinner tonight?” is one of the questions I face when running out of dinner ideas, but I don’t have all the time a proper answer. However, as I found out recently, running out of dinner ideas it happens to others too, so I don’t freak out about this subject (as I used too :)).
I don’t know about others, but I usually resolve the dinner question this way: open the fridge and get an idea on what’s inside, then try to imagine what dishes clank I could make from what its there. I consider myself pretty creative in the kitchen and often invent new dishes, more or less tasty or healthy.
Inspiring dinner ideas
However, the best eating experience in my life didn’t happen in my dining room, but on a wonderful Cruise from New York to Bahamas where I could eat everything one can imagine under the sun. And I can say that I throw away all my fears of getting fat and I took full advantage of this opportunity. Beginning with the first day of the cruise I took some pictures of my favorite dishes on the Norwegian Gem Cruise ship, in order to remember the experience and recreate the dishes at home on days when I feel uninspired to answer to that simple question: “What to make for dinner tonight?”. Here are some of them, and I’m curious which combination do you like best.
- Pork steak with Vegetables (sweet potatoes, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, olives, some cooked bean, roasted corn and if you prefer, some slices of cheese). You can see that the plate is full more with vegetables than with meat.
2. Ocean fish baked in the oven with vegetables (spinach, carrots, mushrooms, green bean, boiled corn kernels, fresh sliced tomatoes).
3. Grilled chicken and veal steak with sauce and vegetables. That was really tasty, I highly recommend.
Sooo…what did you make for dinner tonight?
