    I've got probably about a dozen "go-to" midweek meals that I've basically done often enough to not have to read the recipe. Tonight I made one of them, thought I'd share it for vegetarians (or aspiring vegetarians), but I'm not vegetarian and bloody love it. Tomato & courgette risotto. I remember when I used to be intimidated by making things like risotto, lasagne etc. - how foolish I was, it's a piece of piss (also great for lunch if you make too much).



    (needless to say, not my pic)

    Pasta wise I love this carbonara

    You need

    150g bacon
    30g onion or shallots
    20g of cooking oil

    Combine them into a pan and Cook until the Bacon is partially cooked
    Cover with foil or place in insulated container

    Boil and cook pasta
    Combine in a small bowl 3 eggs and as much cheese as you want, grated

    Combine everything in a large bowl and serve

    I am Italian and therefore I felt the moral obligation to intervene, I hope you will not get angry with me for this

    To be true, the "real" Carbonara ingredients are these (for four people):

    - 150g Guanciale (difference between Guanciale and Bacon)
    - 3 egg yolks
    - black pepper
    - table salt
    - 50g Roman pecorino cheese (It is sheep's cheese)

    original recipe here

    Made corned beef stew last night. Made it once before, following the recipe exactly, but it was too spicy for my girlfriend, so toned the chilli down this time.

    It was nice, but a little weird being basically curry-flavoured without actually being curry, so I reckon next time I make it I'll try it with the flavours that I know we know and love

    Interesting. I've done corn beef hash many a time which the missus originally turned her nose up at the thought of it. But enjoyed it. Never actually thought to use corned beef as another dish though.

    Yeah we often have corned beef hash and both love it, which is why that recipe grabbed my attention I guess!

    Girlfriend out tonight so I can make something spicy

    Gonna make an inauthentic madras, following this ol' trusty recipe and using all the chillies I can get my hands on. Will also use more tomatoes than it suggests and add chickpeas.

    Haha. I'm guessing she doesn't like it for the "after burn" - you, and the house, smell like an Indian restaurant. The best one is when I make chili jam and the GF walks in and gives me a look, plugging her nose

  9. Had friends over on the weekend for a Mexican night..... made Chicken Molé (https://www.saveur.com/article/Recip...en-Puebla-Mole), rajas con crema (https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/25...nd-sweet-corn/), lime cilantro rice, and habañero chocolate ice cream for dessert.... yummm......

    Also there was a lot of wine and perhaps a wee bit of now-legal cannabis

    Sounds great! Rajas con crema is no looker but I bet it tastes good.

    Came here cos I was thinking earlier that I don't think I've ever had gnocchi - anyone got any recommendations on what to have it with??

  11. Rajas con crema is definitely not a looker.... but I had it as a side with steak in Mexico and it's delicious. Now I make it whenever I can

    I'm not a chocolate guy but do love a chocolate orange

    Anyone seen the new 'Rice Fusion' range of Pringles? I tried Malaysian Red Curry and Indian Tandoori Chicken Masala last week and both were pretty nice, would buy again. Today I bought Peking Duck with Hoisin Sauce flavour... not so good. Japanese BBQ Teriyaki next, it seems! Worth noting that the crisps are frustratingly brittle (they're named rice fusion as they're made with rice flour).

    9 time will be worth the wait







    Only I like spicy BBQ sauce so didn't make any. Just salt, pepper, garlic powder and a stock pot. BEEFY

    I'm aware there's nothing complicated about it, but I've never even looked into doing anything with a slow cooker... probably should.

    Before myself and the missus work hours got balanced up a bit more we were putting 3/4 meals a week through it Monday-Friday.

    Ham fillet - slow cooker
    Stew - slow cooker
    Bolognese - slow cooker
    Stroganoff - slow cooker
    WHOLE CHICKEN - slow cooker

    They aren't great for cooking veg though. You kind of need to cut them small and add boiling water on top of them or parboil them separately. Plus meat doesn't don't sear so browning stuff up needs doing before hand (or for a whole chicken put it under the grill for a few minutes afterwards).

    Got around to doing something gnocchi-related. Used this for inspiration - ignored their sauce and just made one I knew I'd like. Mozzarella was a good call by them, also grated grana padano over the top just because I had some. As with everything I make, it looks like tomato-y slop (the size of the pics are fairly unforgiving...), but it tastes pretty good

    Spoiler!


    Gnocchi verdict: it was a nice dish, but it would've been nicer with pasta.

    Hopefully baw doesn't shout at me
