First topic message reminder :

While watching the playoffs, I’ve been busy in the kitchen.

Made a huge pot of pasta e fagioli and there’s plenty left for lunches. Of course I omit the onion and don’t add celery as I just don’t like it, but a good sprinkling of smoked Spanish paprika is delicious. Serve it with some grated Parmesan and crusty bread and salad.

Second is banana and pecan bread. Pecans are a huge business in Arizona and just before Christmas is harvest time. I have a super lovely older lady patron who gives me a massive bag of freshly picked nuts as a Christmas present. They’re expensive so I’m grateful. I’ll probably make a pecan pie or pecan bars with the rest.

What have you got on the go?

Even I would buy it. just to look at the  meals you prepare. What’s cooking at your house? - Page 4 3922118137

Now the weather is improved (cos this meal is best served outside in the sun) I have taken to preparing tapas.....so little effort on my part but it looks so colourful on the plate.

These prawns would be an excellent cold tapas. Marinade 1/2 tbsp cumin, zest and juice from 1 lime, pinch of sugar, 3  smooshed garlic cloves with some coriander root/stems and a bit of chopped coriander. Leave for 15 minutes.

Heat wok with 1 tbsp oil, throw in prawns and marinade. When Prawns almost cook pour in 4 tbsp of tequila or vodka and flame it up! Once flames are gone serve hot or cold.

Thank you. I’m thinking about it with a fellow librarian who is half Chinese and lived there for many years as well as Korea. Would be fun!

I'm having prawns with salad for tea. I might do a version of what you suggest Cass. I have fresh lemon and garlic and a bottle of vodka, I will call it Russian prawns, Razz

Yey….do a cookbook, I bet it would sell like hot cakes. (no pun intended) cheers

I call this Spanish eggs. No recipe, I just made it up. Thinly slice new potatoes and 5 cloves of garlic. Mix in olive oil and salt and pepper until coated. Add in sliced Spanish chorizo and mix again. Bake at 420 till potatoes start to crisp (stir a couple of times) anywhere from 30-40 minutes. Crack in eggs and back in oven. Once the whites have set, put it on broil for 3-5 minutes depending on how you like your yolks. Serve with fried halloumi. And lots of bread and brown sauce according to Mr. C.

I find most bbq sauces either too sweet or burn your mouth out. I make a good one from scratch espysince most bottled types have onions.

Thai basil chili and chicken fried rice with spinach, crispy fried egg, prawns and cucumbers to cool off after the chili. Guaranteed to clear out the sinuses!

Nowt.
My mojo's got up & gone. Weather's hot.
So for now, it's mostly quick green salads with a selection of cold meats.

Gosh I reeeeeally fancy a tiramisu, I luv that delish mix of coffee, chocolate & vanilla flavours.

No cooking required, you can buy readymade sponge fingers. Knocked up this pic for inspiration & added text.

Might give it a go.
