Meatball Monday

Beef, Food

After a mammoth weekend (the good kind) today I feel about as energetic as a sloth may feel after a long walk and the consumption of a Sunday dinner…. Not energetic at all!

For that reason I nipped to Marks and Spencers and bought some meatballs and mini roasties. A simple 25 minutes roast and dinner was served. OK so this lacked afford on my side but come on, everyone needs a break once in a while?

As it happens, I didn’t love it. I’ll stick to cooking from fresh next time…

A weekend of terrible attention to detail

Cook book, Food, Food general, Foodie, Kitchen

I was on top culinary form this weekend but failed miserably in the documentation department 😟

I think this was possibly due tho the fact that Gavin was home from China and so I was a tad preoccupied ☺️

Regardless, here’s an update of my antics:

Saturday night: A light dinner of bruschetta and tequila prawns. (Bruschetta: raw red tomato, red onion and garlic, all mixed up with a tossing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. Tequila prawns: prawns soaked in tequila, girdled with sweet peppers)

Sunday night: base burgers from the gourmet burger book. These were just a plain ham burger with all the trimmings.

Off the hook: I had some carrots and tofu which needed using or disposing of. So, I found a recipe for a tofu carrot cake! The tofu made the cake super moist!!!!
