We haven't seen Dave post in this thread in a long time.  I hope he didn't eat anything that didn't agree with him.

I'd try the recipe, but no idea where I'd find malt biscuits here. They appear to be somewhat ridiculously priced to import via amazon. Hrm....

Well, he lives in Canada, where the growing season is two weeks in the summer. He's probably in hibernation now, and just didn't want to show us the salmon carcasses that made up most of his recent caloric intake.

... wait ... Has anyone seen a picture of Dave?

http://edmondscooking.co.nz/recipes/fritters/mock-whitebait-patties/

Another great Kiwi recipe -- Mock Whitebait Fritters.

It doesn't actually CONTAIN any whitebait, or taste hugely OF whitebait. But remember, you don't need to faff around with actually catching whitebait.

When cooking this, you don't need to boil the potato or anything, just clean, peel, and then grate the raw potato. It would probably pay to put it in a clean teatowel after grating and squeeze the liquid out, though, or you'll have very runny fritters!

Goes great with tomato sauce.

I'm just seeing these today, all's well, i still haven't recovered from Photobucket and picked another hosting site. Still cooking and almost ate something that didn't agree with me but thought better and passed.

Made a meatloaf this month that went over well with the others, i cut into and knew immediately i wasn't going to eat it. I've always hated meatloaf and it's been maybe a couple decades since i last ate any so thought it was time to revisit, people change, it appears meatloaf doesn't, totally vile. My wife ate a thin  piece, my daughter a thin piece, her boyfriend the rest of the first half of it. He took the other half home and ate it, maybe shared some with his parents, i didn't ask.

When i was mixing it up, seasoning, i was frying up bits of the mix so it tasted good before i panned it and baked it and it did. Form it into something, forget it, meatloaf, meat balls, i'll pass on sausages, hamburgers can be wonderful with enough helpers to disguise the meat texture.

I didn't take pictures of the finished product,  quoting my daughter's boyfriend, "Your dad looks so disgusted!", cracked me up.

Well Happy New Years guys!

Here's a thread i post in on another site that hosts the pictures. The thread's for 2018 to date.

I tried the mango flavor and it's surprisingly good.

Not bad at all :)

Surprising how much water comes out of grated potato, though.

My brother cooked "blins" today, after watching the Life of Boris youtube channel. They're Russian pancakes, basically.

Considering he's never cooked before in his LIFE (and he's over twenty), they turned out surprisingly well. He didn't stir the mix well enough (there were still lumps), and he needed some tips on how to cook them in the pan (more oil, and don't try and do pan-filling ones if you're just starting out and using a crappy spatula), but they were not too bad.

I might try my hand at making "pelmen" next weekend.

The pelmeni turned out amazing, especially with some sour cream. And they store very, very well in the freezer -- you can make a heap of them and freeze 'em down, and just take some out as you want 'em, bung 'em in boiling water for ten minutes, and there's your tea done.

I ran out the other day (worked my way through the bagful I made a couple weeks ago), so I tried buying some dumplings from the supermarket.

Hoisin Pork and Cabbage dumplings taste utterly revolting. Horrible. I'm not sure I even want to give away the ones I haven't cooked yet, I couldn't do that to some innocent soul.

I need to make more pelmeni.

Been using 'postimage' at diystompboxes a bit so put a few of the new meals from the past two weeks up onto postimage, we'll see.

Last night was Roast Kale, cannellini bean, chorizo, tomato...
Pink pasta, smoked salmon sauce over fresh taglierini...
Blade steak, low and slow in the oven then seared on a screaming hot chimney. With mixed mushroom risotto, wasabi/horseradish sauce...

I'll say again, Russian Pelmeni are amazing. I really, really need to do another big batch. And if anyone had any tips on rolling and folding big batches, I would really appreciate it :)

Searing a blade steak on a chimney, edamame/corn succotash with garlic/lemon/evoo smashed mini potatoes potatoes.

I had been wondering what Dave has been eating.

Building has fallen off for me as well. Hopefully I can get back to it in a month or two. Haven't touched my Iron since November.

I know that if I eat too much food, my pants will feel tighter.  Here I am just looking at food and experiencing the same thing--- yikes!  :o  I just figured out why!  :-[  :-[  :-[  :P
