I certainly hope so. I'm trying to work through a very trying time. I hope this will help.

Remember what I said. If mr fob ever kicks you to the curb. I'll be there waiting with a high tech kitchen and your very own nerd station. .... Amanda will understand.


Um...

... We could go live in Utah.

Please excuse my Northern chum. Perhaps they have a different name oop t'Naarth.

Fig Newtons are well known in this part of the country.
Pig Newtons remain a little harder to find.

Dinner tonight was Chicken Biryani (frozen, Waitrose) with a home made veggie curry in sauce. Accoutrements were poppodums with chutney and M&S naan bread (the best I've tasted outside an Indian restaurant - shall have to try ours soon.)

Although not really cooking, I liked filling the house with the smell of curry and also the fact there was barely half a bowlful of scraps left - which I shall have for tea tomorrow.
I love it when food I make is devoured voraciously.

Good news is I only used about 1/4 of the frozen biryani.
So I know I'll be called upon to make it again. And this time Mum won't be wary of buying the extras (without the starters and naan they were less then 1, but I know the 'rents love the addditional dishes.)
They both enjoyed it so much.

She won't ask Dad. He prefers Tesco's prepacked curry to anything else. Nothing to do with the taste, he just likes the routine of buying it and reheating it, makes him feel secure. She'll either tell him the same night we're having Cherry's curry, or just tell me to make enough for the two of us instead.

Either way is a little sad, but if I cook, by the end of the meal he'll be happy.
Whereas Mum will be very cross with his "fart-arsing around" if he's trying serve up his own meal at the same time I am.

Wish I had her voice.
But then she probably wishes she had my curry tonight.

I made crispy battered honey chicken with steamed bock choy with a little soy sauce and white rice last night. It was a hit. Almost as good as a chinese take away apparently. I wasn't happy with the batter. I will use different flour next time.

I used plain flour and cornflour. Next time i will use self raising flour and cornflour so the batter is a bit plumper.

Great minds think alike. I recently made a subscribe and save order at Amazon for Vegetable Korma and Bombay Potatoes. They're the Tasty Bite microwave pouches.

As a further coincidence, I ordered Green Tea with Acerola Cherry, which I just realized sounds like Cherry's areola. I think I just figured out what to get Sarge for Secret Santa.

Teas' Tea Half and Half Green Tea with Acerola Cherry, 16.9 Ounce (Pack of 12)

Tonight was thin steaks seasoned with rosemary, sauteed red bell peppers, and peach slices (from the giant mutant peach crop that we are apparently having this year; each person got 1/2 a peach and it was still too much.)

It was actually supposed to be sauteed zucchini instead of the peppers, but somehow the zucchini didn't get purchased.

Steamed and sauteed brussel sprouts and asparagus with pepper, garlic, and anise ... and a crisp Sauv Blanc. Plus a side of bike trainer.

I see. Never know until you experiment with different recipes.
