First topic message reminder :

While watching the playoffs, I’ve been busy in the kitchen.

Made a huge pot of pasta e fagioli and there’s plenty left for lunches. Of course I omit the onion and don’t add celery as I just don’t like it, but a good sprinkling of smoked Spanish paprika is delicious. Serve it with some grated Parmesan and crusty bread and salad.

Second is banana and pecan bread. Pecans are a huge business in Arizona and just before Christmas is harvest time. I have a super lovely older lady patron who gives me a massive bag of freshly picked nuts as a Christmas present. They’re expensive so I’m grateful. I’ll probably make a pecan pie or pecan bars with the rest.

What have you got on the go?

Cass, have you had no trouble buying all the ingredients you need?

My sons partner loves baking, she couldn't buy flour anywhere for over a month. The silly girl even asked me if I had any....she obviously doesn't know me as well as I thought she did. Laughing
Anyway, she did manage to get some a couple of weeks ago, made scones, brought some round, they were delicious.

Did I ever mention at my sons school fayre when they asked parents to bake and bring?
I thought I had baked scones, they labelled them as rock cakes, and to add insult to injury no one bought them. Crying or Very sad

For a while I couldn’t get any all purpose flour and yeast. Seems to be hit and miss with some things. Apparently beef is getting a bit scarce and expensive due to meat packing plant workers catching the virus. There’s not been any problem with fresh fruit and veg.

Whatever I’ve not gotten, I’ve managed to work around with something else. I plan my weekly meals mostly on what I have in the freezer and pantry so in essence I am shopping for the following week. Or restocking what I have used. Like I mentioned before, I did a bunch of huge shops before everything went pear shaped so I’m lucky in that respect.

Still having trouble for some cleaning products both for work and home.

Scones can be tricky!

Like you Cass, I am sort of shopping for the following week, rotating what I have in the freezer. I have cooked more this last few weeks, because obviously eating out is....out.
To be absolutely honest, I have never been so organised.


Thank you for understanding about my scone mishap...(unlike Eddie) Rolling Eyes

No worries. Food fails are a part of life. I’m a crap baker really. It’s very precise. With cooking I can add a bit of this and a dash of that. Much easier.

I guess Mr. C’s military career got me organized. Especially if he was away, I didn’t want to nor couldn’t dash to the shops every few days. Plus when we were first married we were poor so I went around the shop with my list and a calculator and was nearly always spot on with my budget. Probably also contributed to me getting a library career.

It’s been a long weekend here so lots of cooking and some baking.

No knead bread (another one is currently in the oven), real honest to goodness flapjacks (found an unopened jar of golden syrup at the back of the pantry) and for dinner tonight Moroccan style lamb meatballs in a Moroccan tomato sauce, roasted broccoli rabe, Spanish patatas bravas with home made salsa brava and aioli sauces.

My Thai assistant cooked up ribs in a Thai sauce, tonight. Wonderful!

Yummy! I’ve never been a huge rib fan. A bit like bone in wings. Too much effort for too little reward. I like short ribs though. Especially in the slow cooker with an Asian style sauce.

I have actually made flapjacks. I put nuts and chocolate chips in them. They are excellent to eat while cycling. I think I ate them on one ride and ate the rest sitting around the house, which sorta defeated the purpose of making them.

Hahahaha! I’ve made chocolate ones before, not chips but cocoa. I still have some syrup and oats left. Maybe next week.

Lots of cilantro and diced red onions...yuuuuummmm.  Easy to make, great presentation, and really good.

I am doing this for tea tonight with Steak and Jersey Royal pots.
Quill, do you have a dressing with this bean salad?

Stir 3/4 cup white vinegar, 1 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and 1 tsp. salt together in a saucepan; bring to a boil until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Pour vinegar mixture over bean mixture; marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight. Drain salad of extra marinade before serving. I like to sprinkle chopped cilantro just before serving.

Soz is so late for tonight.  It's 7:30 am here, meaning late afternoon there.  Quickly.

Or, you might buy a sweet/tangy Italian dressing at store.

Squeeze some lime juice on it right before serving.

Yes. I confess, I just looked up a recipe. You can do the same, and look for one more suitable to your tastes/diet. Try: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/13933/black-bean-and-corn-salad-ii/

It’s been a long week. Senior junior has been exposed to COVID-19 and so many horrible things happening in the world.

Comfort food needed. Creamy smoked salmon pasta steps up to the plate.

Staycation day 2 food.

Day 2 of staycation cooking. Yesterday was all about takeout sushi.

Banana bread, blueberry clafoutis, and salmon patties with spiced and herbed couscous with smashed cherry tomatoes and a homemade yogurt/dill/garlic/olive oil/lemon sauce.

The bigger one had too many berries but it was still delicious. Got my new oven dirty though:(

I will have a slice of the one with too many berries, it might not look as neat but I bet it tastes divine. cheers

Day 3. Sausage rolls this morning and a buttermilk fried chicken dinner with all the fixings.

Have to say Cass, not only are you a brilliant cook, the photo's you take are pretty good too. My mouth actually watered when I looked at the sausage rolls, I haven't had one of those for years.

Aww thanks Syl. Sausage rolls are one of the things I miss most. I looked through loads of recipes before I found one that I could tweak to my liking. I may have had one for breakfast lol. And my new oven is ACE! No more worrying about burning or hot spots. Last Friday as a reward after finishing summer reading, I broke out the expensive proper British bacon and chipolatas. Baked both in the oven. Perfection and less greasy.

The overstuffed berry clafoutis was so nice and juicy and custardy, even if it did boil over a bit and spoil my nice clean oven!

I’m off now to attempt making my own square (Lorne) sausage and soft Scottish morning rolls. I’m not great at breads so fingers crossed! I also managed to bring back some bakers rusk in February as that is an important component of the sausage. Dinner tonight is chicken teriyaki with Japanese sticky rice.

Eureka! The rolls came out perfectly! That’s why having a new oven is my joy!

Also the chicken teriyaki was delicious. I added a whole bunch of veg sautéed in garlic/soy sauce and mirin to it. Nigella Lawson’s recipe.

I had a massage and cupping and a visit to the chiropractor and arranged a Sunday social distance breakfast (I’m making crepes) with a mate who I haven’t seen since this all kicked off.

It’s a good day. Sending extra good vibes to those here who need it I love you What’s cooking at your house? - Page 9 04f7b810

All these mouthwatering posts somewhat relegate my own alliterative bachelor's baked bean breakfast into insignificance....

Thank you good sir. And I love beans on toast. Especially with some grated sharp make your eyes water cheddar on top.
