Marvelous. Tasty. Healthy. Boom!
This time of the year typically inspires hearty food to warm our proverbial cockles and so this dish was a bit of a shock to my kitchen last night. Yet despite the name, it actually is a filling, hugging dish…it’s basically just a roast with a couple of slightly more exotic ingredients!
Overall I did enjoy it but I have to be honest in that I felt it was a little on the bland side. This recipie came from Tom Kerrdge courtesy of his new book “Toms table”. Whenever I cook from his selection I really expect something to wow me and previously he hasn’t disappointed but this one left me feeling lack luster. Probably not a dish to add to my “to make again” list.
Chorizo is delicious isn’t it?
I wanted a tasty dinner to end my working week but by the time Friday hits me I need a dinner which quite frankly doesn’t take too much effort. So, I found this easy and fast pasta recipie which has chorizo in and thought, perfect!
Cooking this simply entailed frying and boiling, it could not have been more simple but the outcome was deceptive! A spicy, moorish hug in a bowl.
But be warned fellow foodies, these are calorific making them only allowable as a special treat! I enjoyed these on movie night….my naughty night ☺️
They are a creamy, cheesy, crispy contender for gold!
Here is a low fat chicken tikka recipie which allows you to enjoy this class I dish without feeling the guilt of excessive calorie consumption!
Granted, it does lack the luxury creamy quality that a tikka typically provides but for a week day dinner I don’t think it’s a worry complaint.
I scored additional brownie points with this dish as its a bit of a favorite of Gavs! 😄
The wind was blasting last night and I enjoyed the cosyness of my PJs and slippers whilst listening to the howling gales!
It seemed rather appropriate on this blustery night that a hearty, body warming dinner should be on the menu and so that’s precisely what I did!
This dish of roast vegetables and a pork chop is humble, simply, hearty and tasty (not to mention easy)
Simply take your veg (I went for parsnips and Butternut squash) and roast for 15 minutes in olive oil and seasoning (I added oregano). Then depending on the size of your chops, place the pork chops on top of the veg, sprinkle in some chopped apple slices, and toast for a further 15 minutes. Done! (Add Gravy if you like)
Lamb, when cooked right, can be one of my most enjoyed meats yet all too often, lamb for me is just too lamby.
Not on this dish though, this lamb was ridiculously brilliant, outstanding! It was moist, soft and full of a sweet flavor which paired with the fruity tangy pomegranate and onion salad was a match worthy of a Sunday!
I also added some of my granddads home made gooseberry and mint jelly which was a brilliant addition, of course you can’t do that but I’m sure there is something comparable available!!
Well worth the pay out for the leg joint, I don’t believe you would get the same cook on a smaller joint such as a chop. Worth the time also!
Tom Kerridge made another appearance in my house over the weekend. OK, so it wasn’t actually Tom in the flesh, but his new recipie book did feature in my food adventures, to be specific, the Jerk Chicken.
It’s not the 1st time I’ve noshed on this spicy poultry but Toms tip of oven cooking with a steam element (from a water bath under the chicken) is NOT to be ignored! Honestly, I cooked the chicken pieces for 45 minutes. I thought to my self “this is going to be dryer than the Sahara itself” but to my surprise and delight, it was as moist as moist can be!
A simple dish with a fiery flourish…go for it. (Not sexy to eat though, unless sexy to you is carnivorous finger lickers)
Everyone who reads my blog will have seen that each week I have a movie night and typically the food that accompanies this night is naughty, comforting, tasty and did I say naughty?
This week we had this dip. It’s a really great, simple dish but packs a flavor punch that will leave you dazed and elated!
For the chips (semi homemade)
Awesome guilt food at its best
