i just did tempura chicken and egg fried rice. wasn't very good at all.
After that thread about healthy eating.
Haven't had tea yet, too early.
going to be fish pie
wasn't very good :(
but going to make chicken pasta bake
had that twice today.
Every time I buy steak from that Tesco three for 10 quid meat deal I tell myself "never again" and every time I forget.
On a positive note had a pretty good sweet and sour chicken last night though.
do you make up the sauce yourself? In which case - what do you use? Not made a proper homemade sweet and sour but would like to as they are tasty
So had to improv' a bit.
I used pineapple juice, cornflour, vinegar, sugar (brown is better but I virtually never use it), vinegar, soy sauce, tomato puree, HP fruity sauce (in place of ketchup as I was trying to replicate my mother's recipe and am pretty sure that was part of it), a smidge of chilli power and some water. Could have done with some ginger but didn't have any.
It tasted fairly similar to bought stuff (plus the feeling of smugness at doing it myself), but not as good as my mother's aforementioned recipe, which I really must remember to claim from her.
will have to try this some time, thanks :)
Which I'll have with a nice piece of trout
roasted veg always.
Trout cooked perfectly :)
pork mince and extra peppers and garlic... loads of garlic. Accompanied by two glasses of Chilean red which I swallowed rather than spitting into a bucket.
Never done it with pork mince before - lamb, yes - but first time with pork. I would heartily recommend it. The wine has given me a lovely heady glow too. I have become... comfortably numb
i had veggie lasagne (no white sauce on it gross urgh no) and some meringue nests with strawberries VERY GREAT VERY GOOD
"'do you want a bit of cake or a meringue?'
'aye you're right, i do want a bit of cake!!!!!!"
very bad joke very bad granda
i'm sure your granda is still really funny though like you
Noodle soup or something but we have no food and I CBS to go to the shops.
Might just bung a pizza in the oven.
Probably 2 red wines, a couple of lindor and a few lines.
the lindor is probably the only bit of truth in that, since I am practically a saint these days.
this is my first time working with sardines. really impressed by how much you get in a little tin
I feel sick in a good way
or tesco noodles with peanuts and cashews and satay relish mixed in. decisions, decisions.
mixed up with some herbs and garlic pepper and roast onions and gravy. mmmmmmmmm. actually genuinely love the texture of quorn as well, more than most meat. is quorn healthy? idk.
It was all right. Needed more bacon.
a £30 hotel chocolate one I bought for half price, smugly says on the box that theyve gone against the grain and made a really thick one, not realising that thin chocolate is what makes easter eggs good.
What is wrong with you?
but every time i try to have it as a meal it kills my stomach
Chilli I made in a big batch so it costs like 70p a portion you naysayers you
when I get round to it. I wouldn't know how to cook lentils and can't think of a reason why I'd even bother (ref: that other thread).
I decided to cook for my flatmate, but by the time i went out and got the ingredients I come back and she;s gone.
I decided to cook anyway. I'm using the puff roll pastry stuff and it's currently in the oven. I put spread some tomato on there as a base and I boiled some asparagus. I fried some mushrooms in olive oil and garlic and put them on top of the puree. I sliced some fresh beef tomatoes and finished with mozzarella and a bit of basil.
I've made a side salad with homemade dressing (olive oil, bit of vinegar and lemon).
Now i got a massive open tart that I have to eat by myself.
My portions are always so big :(
And it's loaded with veg so hopefully that's a little bit healthy. Plus a side salad.
Like the sound of that.
When I was reading your post it was in the style of a Henry Hill narration from Goodfellas.
there's tons of open tart left...
Sounds posher than it is.
Didn't get the pan hot enough before putting the fish in, so the skin wasn't crispy. Gutted.
The crispy skin is the best part and I normally do it well.
Too impatient. Lesson learned.
and had it with some noodles and green tea
Slung two samosas, two pakoras and two bhajis in the oven, and gonna microwave some sweet & sour chicken & rice.
Not even that hungry.
But I'd rather just go to bed tbh
Mid week drinking wahoo. Healthy eating etc lol
For tea is - toast. And tea (actual cup of tea). Big ask.
So a bowl of these when I got in:
The food of kings.
delicious (how could it not be, with bacon?)
MARLON: Well well well if only we caught them haddock last night in the algarve
ROSCOE: How many times do I have to tell you that they can't fly
MARLON: They can't fly
ROSCOE: I know
Very disappointing, pretty tasteless.
Don't know if I've just fucked it or that's how it's meant to be.
but kind of creamy and comforting. I make it and have a blob on the side of other curries, it is really bland by itself.
loads of salt helps
there definitely are more interesting dahls tho
What other Dahl's ye got? Got any recipes you can share?
she seems to be very good at keeping them offline tho, soz =(
you can do whatever you want with it.
stock / tomato / cream / combination of all or none.
spices, herbs, seeds.
such combination. wow possiblities
plus unfortunate amts easter chocolate, and ben and jerrys rasperry frozen yoghurt. good times.
WHY HAVEN'T I OPENED IT YET???
it was ok but I wanted it to be more... yoghurty?
a kindof kale, potato and onion hash, with two perfect poached eggs on teh top, with a sprinkling of chilli flakes
and a pale ale
was really good (might not have had onions)
does sound good.
tonight however i am eating at the studio, so it's going to be a microwave more from sainburys
mix it up a bit
but exciting to be working late in the studio. just need soem fuel to keep you going innit.
But with that filled pasta stuff. And "extra strong" garlic bread on the side.
And a yoghurt for pudding.
Then about an hour after than I had a Creme Egg.
of some barcelona craft ale, a few big jamesons, most of a bottle of wine and then, hilariously, an entire bag of southern fried bites and a tin of beans. bollocks.
it was adequate
From a Japanese takeaway. It seemed to be basically everything in a noodle soup. Mussels, squid, prawns, tofu, spinach, an egg, chicken, veg. Only about £6.50, it was tons better than any Wagamama I have ever had, they actually gave me more than a single prawn!
Not so good.
Got back real late after a gig and had no energy to make any real dish. Gonna just roast a fuckload of veg and have it with bacon and pitta tonight.
