New Year’s Eve

大晦日、ですね。我が家はイギリス式に過ごすので年末の大掃除もせず御節もつくらず、今年は静かに夫とふたりのニューイヤーイブ、ほとんど普段の週末のような1日でした。

今日の夕食。この何年かほとんど前菜は作らなくなりましたが(太るので)、今日はニューイヤーイブなので特別に夫だけスモークサーモン。

It’s New Year’s Eve today – we are having a very quiet one.  It was just like a normal Sunday.

We stopped having starters years ago because we find it too filling and only gives us extra weight but now and again we have starters. Today, my husband had smoked salmon.

メインは、ビーフの赤ワイン煮。3時間ちょっと煮込んで良い具合にとろっと煮えていたのですが、味が今ひとつ。久しぶりにとてもシンプルにトマトも入れず作ったのですが、やっぱりこっちのお肉ではシンプルに作るとコクが出ない気がします。ちょっと残念。たくさん残っているので、ソースに色々足してから冷凍するつもりです。

For the main I cooked Beef in Red Wine – cooked it for about 3 hours yesterday.  Although it was melting tender, I felt the flavour didn’t have depth.  I often put spices or lots of vegetables with the beef but today I cooked it very simply like I used to in Japan, I think beef here just isn’t good and the flavour doesn’t get deep without help of things like spices and vegetables.

I’ll probably add some tomato sauce the sauce and cook it a little before freezing what’s left.
