I'll start with a weird food like - bacon and banana toasties. The bacon has to be smoked and the banana has to be ripe... God they're good.

When you've made a casserole (slow cooker job) and dumplings (Herbs de Provence added to the dumpling mix for better taste), try a dumpling from the casserole with golden syrup.

Try cheese dip.

 

Cover thin slices of cheddar with milk in a frying pan and heat gently until the cheese has melted. Delicious mopped up with buttered, white bread.

At the start if a week I always make up a huge bowl of salad which lasts for lunches around 3-4 days. A little game changer for me is raw mushrooms (sliced as thin as possible) and de-seeding the cucumber. Seems to keep it moisture free and fresh for a bit longer. And fresh herbs like dill or mint in there puts it in the GOAT category.

 

And marinade a soft-ish boiled and shelled egg (6 mins exactly) in light soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and a touch of water too. Another level.

Reminds me when my Grandma made pea soup with dumplings then fished them out sprinkled them with sugar and called them your sweet !!

At the request of @oafcmetty, here's the Mongolian beef recipe mentioned a while back.

I've managed to chop the bottom couple of lines off, so end with serving with Jasmine rice, garnished with the remainder of the spring onions and sliced red and green chillies. Wash it down with a glass or three of Tsingtao lager.

Mushrooms are much better if you tear them up with your hands rather than use a knife. Unleash your inner caveman.

My favourite thing to eat EVER is Thai beef salad. Mint, coriander, red onion, chili, few peanuts/cashews. Rare beef and a dressing with lime, fish sauce and palm sugar. Topped with ground roasted rice.

If you like sweet 'n' sour chicken/pork/lamb, here's a very quick and simple recipe for the sauce.

 

9 tablespoons of ketchup

3 tablespoons of malt vinegar

4 tablespoons of dark muscavado sugar

2 finely chopped garlic cloves

 

Just mix the whole thing up and it's ready. You can always add more ketchup or vinegar if it's too sweet or sour for your taste.

I might try that with some home made mozzarella

If I write a list for you could you pick me some things up, either that or just knock up the Mongolian Beef recipe as posted by Bristol, and I will call round for it.

Well as every day is like an Easter Sunday, here we go. We were once in a Safeway in Napa Valley and asked for a pasta dish to take away, and were offered a serving the size of a suitcase. We now do our own which is cold pasta mixed with diced chicken and sweetcorn and covered with either a Caesar or garlic and herb sauce.

 

Then there's a salad that we do which is a full salad in a bowl with a quartered egg, chicken or salmon and covered in Thousand Island Dressing.

 

A side dish of rice with red onion, sliced grilled pepper, tinned garden peas and sweetcorn is also very nice.

 

Sue's cooking Cajun this weekend, Jambalaya and a Gumbo cooked with okra which is hard to find, we found a single shop in Plymouth that sells it fresh.

 

Never been fussed to try bat though.

Bat is in plentiful supply, it's seasonal though, not to be eaten November December time. 

 

 

 

Poor humour I know but it's hard being stuck indoors.

Yep, doesn't sound too good but garden peas work okay to give it sweetness. Not mushy ones anyway.

 

Shite, is this what the season's come to?
