Frying up random stuff is fun. Tonight was spam (never tried it before, will try most things once!), sausage meat (usually tasty, soaks up flavour nicely), carrot (eh, it's a vegetable, I can tell Mum I had veges with tea), plus the usual onion, salt, and pepper. Got some mushrooms, too. I ain't broke yet.

What's a nice, hot, hot sauce? And what kind of thing does that sort of sauce go well with? (Besides Gordon Ramsay going fuck shit fuck shit fuck shit fuck.)

Don't use white button mushrooms. The sauce doesn't taste the same. Use common brown mushrooms, like the recipe says, even though they cost more  :-\

You can use these, just don't expect things to work per usual :D

I fried some bacon, potato, and onion. When I added the button-mushroom sauce, it formed a nice gravy with the bacon grease. Sometimes, you just get lucky.

Made some cheburek tonight, and also made a complete mess of my kitchen.

Flour everywhere.

I went by the Life Of Boris video. Didn't have any green onion, so I used chives, instead. (When I was a kid, we had a planter of chives outside, and sometimes Mum would send me outside with scissors to get some, to chop up into the mashed potato.)

Insanely tasty.

I like how as soon as I change the title because the balance of posters in the thread had finally outweighted Dave on a regular basis, and then he posts a beautiful bowl o' noodles right after.

I would never had noticed that Jon, i'm shattered time for a good cry... anyways thank you for the kind words Jon! I haven't picked up a soldering iron in a few years so not much of any sort of participation during that time but i do check the new posts daily to see what's happening.

Still doing lots of cooking pictures but only post on Instagram and one other forum with a food section and image hosting. The third party, party has left me scarred, first i used Imageshack then had many 1,000's  of pictures with photobucket when they got stupid and since then a picture here and there using postimage.

A couple from last weekend, steak and eggs, reverse sear blade steak- low and slow . Butter chicken, aloo gobi matar, basmati and store bought naan & samosas.









Figured out how to maximize/manipulate our oven for pizza betterment.

Weekend before.

1.Mozzarella, celeriac, radish, turnip, pickled ot peppers 2. Pissaladiére Sardine/anchovy paste, onion compote, fennel, peppers, olives







Always great to see what others are up to in the kitchen.

Last night I made Marzipan Cheesecakes. half-pint mason jar sized, cooked in a water bath with my immersion cooker. Very tasty (assuming you like almonds) and horrendously calorie rich, so I've also broken out the stationary bike again....



And just to doubledown on the calorie bomb I'm making "Cajun" "Alfredo" tonight. Chicken thighs and andouille sausage cooked up with garlic and a generous helping of cajun seasoning mix, a pint (~475mL) of heavy cream added and simmered for a minute or two, 4 cups of cooked penne pasta (~225g uncooked) added, then about a cup (~240mL) of shredded Parmesan mixed in (with a bit of fresh parsley and pecorino romano for finishing).

edit: Ok... added a wee bit too much cayenne to the spice mix this time around. Wheeze. Sweat. Cough. Still yummy, but with a dose of pain.

Tonight's fry-up turned out really, really good.

Chopped up onion, carrots, cubed jumbo brown mushrooms, some mince, cubed spam, salt, and some pepper. With boiled spuds on the side. No sauces.

I'm surprised at how good this is.

Cauliflower and potato curry.



Learned how to make cauliflower so that it doesn't taste awful. The secret is basically to cook it longer. For this I did 15 minutes boiled in water, then roasted (with oil) for 10 minutes on the bottom of my oven and broiled for 15.

Chorizo, porcini mushrooms, a bit of mince, veges, and rice. Very tasty indeed, no pepper or other seasonings needed at all :D

So I just had a bowl of brisket pho for lunch (I must admit it was rather average) and I just found this thread. Feel like something yum to eat to balance out the disappointment.

School hols start for my kids this week, so next week will bring a day baking pretzels. Shall try and get some photos.

We had a chili cookoff at work, so I made vegetarian chili with grits toasts.

Our site leader told me, when I was setting things up in the morning, that he thought "vegetarian" and "chili" are contradictory terms. I'm like ... dude, "chili" refers the the vegetable in the stew.

Last year the vegan chili apparently won, so I thought I had a shot if enough vegetarians stopped by and had only one option ;)

I have experienced an “oh thanks but you don’t have a chance” entering my vegetarian chili in a contest at work.

Looks delicious Jon!
