  1. Just polished of a large bowl of chilli beef&rice
    put a kilo of shin beef in first thing this morning with peppers,onion some fresh chillis and 2 OXO, garlic and tomoto puree, left it all day in slow cooker and just troughed it with Uncle Bens on my return from the pub. It sure took the chill off, and enough left for a late night snack

  2. A big stew with doughballs or in a large Yorkie pudding, served alongside a decent ale/wine always a winner for me. :hungry: Failing that, curry is a winner.
  3. Had a beef goulasch round a mates house on Saturday, had seconds and scraped out the schaefer dish as well.

    My mate and his mrs looked at me like a right greedy bast*rd, they'd anticipated having the leftovers for lunch. Ha, bean-stealing, gotta love it!
  4. Corned beef hash -- luvverly! :)

  5. Lanc hot pot.

    Cut price Tesco leg of lamb boned, chunked and browned, some cheap lambs kidneys cored, layered with sliced onions, same weight of sliced spuds and in a wide dish. Topped up with stock, the one off a boiled unsmoked gammon worked well (left over roast lamb and gravy also great). Covered. Low oven for a couple of hours. Uncover, dot with butter, throw on some chopped rosemary. Mid oven till brown.
  6. I just tanned a large pepperoni pizza, choc eclair for pud.

    Now im firing into a large bag of peanuts with a large botle of ginger beer.

    Fcuking heaven.
  7. Cooked a massive beef casserole with parsnips, carrots, leeks, courgettes, lentils and the ubiquitous dumplings (I'm a southerner) - good for 2 days. Served with jacket potatoes and hot mulled wine. For dessert home-made mince pies with clotted cream. Washed down with real coffee from a coffeehouse in the Wirral (thanks Trans-sane) - added some Aquavit from Sweden.

  9. Heaven.

    Temp is down to a mere 10C here in HK so we had a chilli and home-made refried beans last night - wonderful! (It did get a bit cold during the night - the duvet kept being blown up into the air......)
  10. Oh - and if it carries on like this a cassoulet is DEFINITELY on the cards.
  11. With haricot beans? Always loved any meal I had in France which involved these. Could never quite replicate it back in England - started to look like baked beans in a tomato sauce!
  12. Man the fuck up and get some cold, fruit dumplings in butterscotch sauce, down you.
