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

I just had two very out of date M&S crème caramels.

I think I've done it this time.

Anyone got any horse strength imodium ?

Or a cork ?
Fallen off the diabetes wagon again?

And all for a couple of manky crème caramels?

You is a sad lad. :razz:

I had eight Bird's Eye fish fingers & a pile of Aldi crinkle cut oven chips with grated cheese but that's because I've been energetic all day, so earned it.
Back to boring old ribeye steak & salad tomorrow...:mrgreen:

Keep it up matey. the end result's worth it, as in you ent going to be dead yet.
I've dropped 36lb now, despite still indulging in IPA. Walking & hiking 5-6 days a week makes a BIG difference.
 
Try this as well....... I'm certain the recipe originated in Naples, then crossed the Atlantic to the US .

Pasta Patatas e Provelo

3 spring onions, or 1 small onion, chopped fine

3 tbsp decent olive oil (doesn't need to be extra virgin, can overpower the dish)

2 slices smoked bacon

Around 7ozs 1/2" chunked potato

7oz short pasta shapes (Tradition says it must be 3 or 4 different shapes if you have them)

5oz smoked provelone cheese (very difficult to get, so I use a ball of mozarella and some grated parmesan)

5 cherry tomatoes, quartered

2 cloves of garlic

1 pot of vegetable stock in a mug of water and a glass of white wine

Gently fry the garlic and potatoes for 10 minutes, while bringing the stock to simmer, (it goes really well with a part baked ciabatta put in a hot oven at the same time)

Add the bacon and onion to the potatoes, upping the heat till it starts to cook, stirring to prevent sticking, then back to simmer.

At the same time, add the pasta to the stock, bring back to the boil, then down to simmer, check the bread, should be about ready.

In 5- 10 minutes, it should all be ready, the potato mix should be tender, the pasta tender and slightly soupy, add more boiling water if needed, but do not drain.

Finely slice the mozzarella, add the cheese and potato mix to the pasta, stir gently until the cheese has melted through, serve at once with chunks of bread.

Top with a little fresh parsley and basil

Serves 2.

This was poor people's food, now a real favourite, but everyone makes it differently, try it then alter to suit yourself, add chilis etc
Any pics?
 
I found out this morning that when using a clacker it is not a good idea to use it twice if it does not loosen the top the first time.

I finished up with a soft boiled egg in a demolished egg shell.

No pics because I was too busy trying to separate egg from crumbled little bits of shell.

Try it, it's lush. Crispy on the outside, moist on the inside.
Indeed very lush, made one yesterday and started snacking it. Don't dare make one often as I'll scoff it all and sod the weight gain...not a good idea. :) I prefer it made with good quality wholemeal bread.

Yesterday was braised pork shoulder steaks, mash and sweetheart cabbage.

I'm getting quite attached to forswearing spuds/pasta/rice & just bulking up on the veg.

Tonight's effort was a big onion, half an aubergine, a big courgette, half a red pepper & eight big cherry tomatoes combined with two skinless chicken breasts (reduced to 69p in Morrisons).
(That's seven of my "five a day" sorted without the peach I've already et & the strawberries & cream I'm about to).
Sautéed the lot in a little unembuggerised olive oil, with a couple of cloves of garlic, oregano & ground nutmeg. A splosh of soy sauce then simmered for 30 minutes.

Sod what it looks like - tasted so bloody good I nearly forgot the fotie.

I have just finished a rather nice dinner but the picture of that makes me feel hungry all over again.

Have lots of Likes.

Edited to add: and the following pics made me feel hungrier as well.
 
Evening BBQ with a few friends this evening. Sadly, the weather wasn’t kind enough for us to sit outside, but at least it stayed dry so that I could incinerate the meat!
