what are the bread? they look v nice
Yeah, looks nice Shenshen. Were they focaccia?
Definitely going to back to my soup making soon, and that one looks like a great start.
Looks delicious Shenshen! Do you think this might work if I shallow fry the coated aubergines? I've never attempted deep frying! I think some chickpeas would go well with this too, hmmm....
You used crispy onions on the dog? Very important, yum! :)
A chicken curry that I got from Tesco (no mind for cooking), topped with curry leaves and chillies.
Can’t find any in the shops at the moment so had to make them. Thinly sliced shallots, dipped in cornflour and fried until brown. Dried on kitchen towels and sprinkled with a bit of salt. Job done 😋
Actually, they were Aldi's finest. Focaccia with caramelised onions and cheddar. They were very nice indeed.
I did shallow fry them, though in a good bit of oil (I'd say about 1cm of oil in the pan). The trick is to cut them a little chunky so you get a crispy outside and meltingly soft inside.
I could see chickpeas going with this, but I'd say try it without first. The aubergine makes it a really filling dish.
Penang-style curry with tofu, mushrooms, broccoli, peppers and potatoes. The paste was shop-bought, I added a tbsp of peanut butter to the dish, though. Quite tasty.
Enchiladas. It’s been years since I have made them. Need to put them back in rotation, they were delicious.
Been years myself. What recipe did you work off?
Just winged it and made a salsa rojo with ancho and pasilla chillies and added some pulled chicken and topped with a cheese sauce.
I did Wagamama chilli beef ramen last night. So good.
Chicken casserole - nice and warming. Also, it tasted much better than it looks!
Rhubarb and Apple Crumble. Pizza.
Lots of **** pizza, it seems.
We had pizza last night. I was lazy and bought the bases, then I was sorry I hadn't made them myself 🙄
I like making the bases now after seeing a guy in Naples a few years ago doing it......properly 🙂. I used always use a rolling pin and take a lump of dough off a big ball, roll it and watch it trying to shrink back into itself. Was always a trial. But used to work but frustrating enough.
Now, I just divide the dough into three even balls, raise and spread out by hand. Done in an instant and very gratifying. Coarse polenta or semolina is a must for spreading out dough though 😀 and for sprinkling of tins.
We had barbecued ribeyes tonight and I made Airfryer chips with new season Queens. They were the nicest Airfryer chips I've had.
Rotisserie duck, mash, duck fat potatoes and pickled carrots
I always get excited when I see cubatahavana has posted in this thread. 😁
Mash looks good and buttery. 👍️
Looks delicious. Did you pickle the carrots yourself and if so, how did you do it please?
I didn't. My mother in law is a pickle specialist. They were delicious
@cubatahavana how did you do the duck? On the kamado with the rotisserie attachment?
Roast chicken breast, asparagus, mash, bacon-mushroom-cream sauce. Utterly utterly unsuitable for the weather today and very against my attempted healthy eating plan, but very tasty all the same.
Yesterday was tarka dal with a mix of lentils and some coconut rice. Probably could have done without the rice, to be honest.
Exactly, got my rotisserie for my kamado bono on Friday. Sunday was testing day. Ran out of coal mid cook as I was using only half a basket of it and half of it was from a previous cook. Wasn't easy to maneuver a full tray of boiling duck fat to add more charcoal, but it was done 😀. Taste wise was amazing, with a honey and lime glaze
How does the rotisserie for it work? Does it turn itself?
What temp and for how long?
Rotisserie plugs to a mains socket and turns by itself. The temps were a bit crazy taking into account that the charcoal finished, but they were about 400 F according to my inkbird thermometer. It took about 1.5 hours
Seen these rack of lamb ribs in my local butchers yesterday and thought they look nice.
I had planned to do them in the Weber kettle, over a low charcoal heat, but by the time I got in from work the heavens had opened over my house, and so I did them in the oven instead.
Won't ever be buying them again either, they were more or less just a big lump of fat, bone and gristle.
Was very very disappointed. Shouldn't be surprised though, it's surely no wonder why you can buy all manner of pork ribs, but don't see these very often.
Best part of my dinner was salad and couscous FFS.
I find lamb can be disappointingly fatty, I only ever buy a leg to roast. I used to grill cutlets with mustard and brown sugar, but found them more trouble than they're worth.
We had spag bol tonight.
