Tonight I cooked..........

Sirloin steak (an ickle one) & a big bowl of mixed salad stuff.

I'm getting quite used to large helpings of rabbit food, either as an accompaniment or with cheese/eggs/ham added for lunch & all cheap as anything too.
 
I did some mixed kebabs last night. Chicken, steak and shrimp, marinated in lemon/cilantro/garlic/olive oil for a few hours. Boiled spuds and grilled squash with it. The photo was a bit dark; the light was fading as I took it, so I fiddled a bit to brighten it up.

Reported.

For using the word “cilantro”.
 
I’ll be keeping an eye on you.
On a serious note; I think using the term cilantro to describe the fresh herb & coriander for the seeds/powder is a good idea, as their uses & flavouring are completely different.
Salsa would be 'orrible with ground coriander, whereas a good curry would be sadly lacking in depth.
Mind you, fresh coriander/cilantro is an essential in the former & significantly enhances the latter.

I think you will find that it’s actually a bad idea, a very bad idea. You see, Roadster is British by birth and by virtue of that is morally obliged to use (and promote the useage) of Her majesty the queen’s English.

I’m currently in the process of authoring a strongly worded letter to the COs and the editor of The Daily Telegraph regarding this terrible slip in standards. I shall also be calling for suitable sanctions be placed upon him in respect of this. At the very least, I think a beheading would be appropriate.

Yes indeed.
Most enlightening.
But I have it on good authority that you're a vegetableist & more interested in a brinjal biryani than real food.

I think being blown from the mouth of a cannon would be most fitting...

I quite agree; however, so are you. I've always felt that British people are tolerant, so I will forgive the failure to capitalise "Majesty" and "Queen". :)

Now we'll never know what happens.

Because I'm addicted to kimchi but too tight to keep paying €25 A tub, I did a bit of google-fu and made my own.

Ingredients were 2 napa or Chinese type cabbage, scallions, white radish and carrot. Spice mix is Korean red pepper flakes, ginger,garlic, fish sauce, bit of sugar and loads of salt- to mix with the cabbage for two hrs before rinsing.

Rinse cabbage then mix everything together before sticking in a couple of large jars. It'll ferment at room temp for 5 days then after a week in fridge it's ready to scoff. It'll last a year in the fridge.

 
Chicken drumsticks. Some sort of spicy marinade with Korean chilli sauce, brown sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, half a tin of chopped tomatoes, half a ton of chilli flakes, ground black pepper and probably something else, I forget. Shoved them in the oven for an hour or so.

They look like road kill, but the chaps said they were quite nice.

See the "5" on the boogiebox? That's quite apt, because I'm making them listen to 5ive's CD every day to try and force them to hurry and finish the job. It's not working, so it might have to be Girls Aloud next week.
 
And due to an Arrseoutfall, so to speak, I bought a new kitchen gadget to play with.
This one will be used quite often and won't be lurking in a cupboard for years or seen in a charity shop.

Answers on a postcard to Porkbrain Towers, with a lightly soiled sheet of kitchen paper as first prize.
