just made the best spaghetti ever. what are you faggots having?
For tea probably beans and veggie sausages from a tin unless I find the ingredients for a real meal in my kitchen later.
What's in the best spaghetti ever?
dolmio of course!
with 2 fish fingers on the side and some veggies from those steam bags.
& trying in vain to win some friends
feel peckish and bored at work so might run out and get some chips in a bit.
However, I have bikram yoga at 6, and you can't eat that close to practice, so i'm poaching some seabass in lime juice, lemongrass and root ginger. It will be delicious, but I'm still going to get an attack of the greeneyed monster at 4 when I have to sit sipping water as they all get in amongst the ale and lamb. BLOODY YOGA.
preceded by astoria soup. Both homemade.Was fucking cracking.
How does that work then (lentil moussaka). Is it roughly the same ingredients with the lentils subbing for the mince? I'm trying to sort out my carnivorous diet and bought lots of wholefoods yesterday. I don't have a clue what to do with them. Give me half a cow and I can turn it into something wonderful, but pulses- ?
whats astoria soup?
and adding roaster peppers to pad it out and sub for the lamb mince. but I'm interested in this lentil chat. Where what how?
Oh, and Haaaai! :-)
Peppers, tomatoes, onion, bulgar wheat, lime, cumin, paprika. I used a jamie oliver recipe. But I'm lacking sumac and zah'tar for it. It was pretty nice, but it needed a bit more of a kick. Will add cayenne pepper next time.
Cos this all sounds supspiciously delicious and edible to me?
I LOVE cayenne pepper in almost everything. You are inspiring me to break out of my cooking lull and make something other than fajtas or pasta again.
Food's the one thing that even as a student I don't think is worth skimping on. I spend max £25 per week or something, but because I like cooking and shop around I can eat really well. And it's all about planning it all before you go shopping so you only get what you need and don't end up spending more buying snacks or lunch or something.
forgot to send you the stuff... shit. sorry.
I'll be back in London from around the 26th March - dya wanna go for some food and stuff?
I'll send you that green chili recipe. You'll love it. So cheap to make as well.
and yeah, let me hold that recipe.
Erm, your choice. All the ones you feature on your blog make my mouth water. But I'll stick to my eating out maxim and say that we should go somewhere which makes food that you can't do easily yourself.
Generally that means putting them in cold water and then bringing them to the boil for ten minutes, then simmering for another ten, before putting a lid on them for the final ten-fifteen. Essentially, they should absorb most of the water and you should barely have to drain them.
fry the peppers, onion and garlic in oil, and then add the lentils to that along with a glass or two of red wine and a generous dollop of tomato puree. Season with nutmeg, cinnamon and parsley and simmer it over the hob. I like to add some fresh mint as well. Then substitute for the meat in your moussaka and robert is your father's brother.
Also- MINT! Such an obvious herb to add, but it had never occurred to me before (I usually stick to sweet greek basil.)
I rushed out and bought the ingredients, but then got distracted watching the luge and ran out of time to make it :-$ (ended up serving my dinner guests Lamb kebab from Hunters bbq hut. FOR SHAME). I'm going to make it when I get back from my gig tonight for a late supper/ tomorrow's lunch, so I'll report in full :-)
But I did serve lovely champagne, and a decent claret with the kebab! And I did get dressed in time for pudding.
i love dim sum.
