I prefer yours, to mine....
I've given in, we're having pizza tomorrow. I've had 2 lovely long weeks off work, cooked almost every evening, I need a night off.
This was tea for last night:
Delicious! I didn't put it on a skewer - far too much faff! Just mixed it up, marinaded overnight and bunged it in the oven!
Be warned - it STINKS the whole house out!
I didn't however add 'pomegranate molasses' wtf? Where do you even buy that?!
Jamie Oliver is sometimes guilty of using fantangled ingredients that are impossible to find!
I also didn't add 'dukkha' as far as I'm aware it's a type of Islamic prayer...
Oooh I like the sound of that, I think the youngest might eat it. Not too sure.
It's about time I gave him the meals I used get as a child.
Eat it or go hungry!!!
Dukkha is pain, unhappiness, a general feeling of disappointment with life.
A major ingredient of the majority of my cooking.
I know someone who has four kids and a picky husband - she ends up cooking five different meals to keep everyone happy (and I mean five completely different not just one with extras / removed bits)
It's complete madness - I certainly wouldn't put up with that!
I used do that, for the kids at least. I knew then that they were all fed. Ex would eat owt put in front of him.
Goes back to being a child myself, I quite often went to bed hungry, because there wasn't much on the plate or if we'd pulled a face at sumat, Dads fork would shoot across faster than Ussain Bolt on speed. Money was seriously tight and Mum didn't have much work with.
I always said, there's no way any of my kids would ever know that feeling.
My mum has a very, shall we say 'plain' palette...
I grew up with:
Mash and fish fingers
Mash and pork chops
Mash and chicken
Mash and peas
You get the gist...
At 18 I was a seriously fussy eater, I'd never tried curry or eaten food with any spice or seasoning. I wouldn't eat even basic things like onions or garlic. I have no idea how I survived!
My very patient husband encouraged me to try more foods and now I'll eat almost anything (bar cauliflower - yuk!!)
I love mash!
Me too. I think we had it a bit too often tho, youngest asked if we could maybe have rice with stuff, cos he he was getting sick n tired of potatoes all the time.
Me too but it's not exactly the basis for a balanced diet!
My mum actually owns a spice rack, until recently it only had salt and pepper on it, but she read that turmeric was good for you so now also has some of that...
I'm not sure what she's adds it to?? Mash???
Just back from Cheltenham so it's convenience food. M&S chicken Kiev a single 20 oz chicken crown made into a Kiev for two. Had it before, really nice. M&S triple cooked chips in dripping, never tried these before but they sound about right.
Red Thai curry.
Red Dragon Red Thai curry paste
Love Thai curry, too hot for Mrs T.
I love Red Thai curry, but not green. I can NOT stand Fresh corriander, I'm ok if there's only ground or powdered corriander, but most green Thai pastes seem to contain a huge amount of leaves.
London House barbecue pack tonight.
Home made Indian salads, rathia etc and parathas from Everest shop.
Youngest asked yesterday if I minded having cheese on toast tonight. He's been having it as a midnight snack a lot recently.
Costing me a fortune in cheese, little shit.
Easiest tea i've done in ages. He had 6 slices of cheese on toast and I had 3 slices of toast and opened a tin of beans n sausages.
Bacon, egg and mushroom baps tonight.
That looks lovely.
We were supposed to have a Meat & potato pie tonight, but I had a lot of carrots, sweede & parsnip to use up, so now it's a root veg pie with a sprinkling of meat.
Strawberry jam tarts made with the left over pie pastry.
