More COOKING/BAKING numptiness

Ah how strange. I made this yesterday! Well, my version of. It was a fusion of Asian cuisine.


Looks nice :+1:

Hang on, maybe not, is that seaweed I can see? :face_vomiting:

Oh yeah, little bit of nori in there! It’s got all sorts. :joy:


Not cooking, just eating

Like @fruit_thief, we’re no chefs chez Doonhamer, but I popped down to the butcher yesterday to pick up a nice butterflied leg of lamb & this evening I hope to twist my parent’s minds & make Lemon Lamb with Jewelled Couscous.

It’s a Nadiya Hussain :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: recipe & looks like a technical dawdle, so what can go wrong?

(from 18mins in…)

My wife is making a big apple crumble for dessert in case my offering is inedible :laughing:


I put sun dried tomatoes in my cheese, ham and pickle baguette. Was very nice.


Mediterranean Ploughmans for Lunch


got a really nice bit of pork shoulder in a covered pot in the oven….

Butterflied it this morning, and then rolled it back up with a filling of panko breadcrumbs, chopped parsley and rosemary, mixed in with parmesan and a bit of egg, and now baking for 5 hours at a low temp, with a pile of tomatoes and garlic to make a really rich ragu with….and will serve with homemade spaghetti latter… can’t wait, and smells fab!


Tonight’s special cooking treat….

really rich colcannon (with onions and Kale instead of cabbage), topped with smoked streaky bacon grilled until crispy, with a black pudding to the side, topped with a scallop… and a port reduction gravy…. really nice!

First time I’ve cooked scallops for myself…. so was a bit worried about turning them to rubber! (I didn’t :grin:)

Even used a serving ring for the colcannon to make it all look pretty…

Finished off with a home made roly-poly, with a home made mango and passion fruit jam filling…. (although did add bought vanilla ice-cream to go with it, so not entirely made from scratch!)

Now feeling both full and smug… and committed to stopping watching Masterchef and thus getting carried away… . :joy:


Mrs took me out for dinner to celebrate. Well, I told her to, then booked the restaurant and paid…

Anyway, a bone marrow burger and a roasted leg if lamb later, I’m totally stuffed.


Pizza night :star_struck:


Was the aubergine pre-cooked or did it cook like that on the pizzia? Just asking as pizzas cook so quickly.

I fried the aubergine first.

More NOT cooking nonsense for Friday!

Loaded fries and a lush panko chicken burger down at a pop up van type jobby at the local cricket club. Kids run around wild and tire themselves out for the night.

Wine in the fridge back home for when they go down. :heart_eyes:
