Red pepper, egg and olive Ciabatta 

Toast-it, Vegetarian

I swoon over a nicely topped ciabatta, I often go for the typical bruschetta or mushroomy mix but this offered something different.

As you can imagine it was really very easy and quick to make and it was delicious. The sweet peppers twinned with the salty olives worked really well, as did the crunchy bread and creamy egg. 

A great Friday night treat.

Chilli with a cheat

Beef, Spicy

I love a good chilli and it can’t be beaten when you have some lovely big nachos to scoop with! 

I’ve recently started making a cheats version of home made nachos, simply cut up some tortilla wraps, drizzle in oil (I use chilli oil) and bake for 5minutes on 180 fan. (Be careful as they can quickly burn)

 
They are totally tasty with a great crunchy texture.

Confused pork

Pork

This is one of those dishes which you defiantly would not serve to a food critic! Yes it tasted great, in fact Gav was really impressed, but it was quite a confused dish featuring elements of cuisine originating from all over the world. I suppose you could call it fusion but I think I’d be stretching it on this dish.

So what was in it? 

Well I used pork medallions and cooked them in a Mediterranean sauce which then started to verge towards a bbq sauce…don’t ask. I made some potato and onion rosties which were deep fried and defiantly felt American and I added some coleslaw just for the hell if it. Nice but unusual.

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.
