  1. Restaurant pet peeves

    The hat indoors really gets up my goat. It's respect that sadly is diminishing quickly. Wait staff who don't know that the way you leave your knife & fork tells them if your done with your meal or not.
  2. OMG. I feel like I need a glass of wine & a cigarette after that..
  3. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Thanks. Nothing real special. I par boil to just under tender. Drain in a large colander and toss around to fluff them up a little. Veg oil S & P and into the oven. Sometimes I'll shallow fry depending on timing.
  4. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    Sardines on toast. Yum. Not that the rest of the house shares my taste.
  5. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Pickled Pork cooked in the pressure cooker, served with roast pumpkin and spuds.
  6. Pumpkin

    Never had or even seen pumpkin pie IRL before. But pumpkin is a regular item on the plate for us. I especially love Pumpkin diced with cumin, S & P some olive oil tossed over the BBQ served on Bruschetta with feta cheese.

    I love Liverwurst and much the same as you I don't buy it unless I come across it. I have never seen it sliced like you have done, I guess your making up for it while you have it....
  8. My Pressure Cooker & Sous Vide. These two definitely make my life easier and tastier.
  9. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    My quick and easy Stamppot with Rookworst & left over grilled capsicums.
  10. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Beef Fajita and Spanish Omelette. All done on the BBQ. Ignore the spring..
  11. Homemade Broth/Stock lasts how long?

    I do have a cast iron stomach and a keen sense of smell @Anna N lol. I'm not overly concerned because the use of my stock will be heated to probably over 65c for whatever it's intended use. I suppose you could always micro wave it to just under boiling to kill any bacteria before use.

    Smashed Avocado, Crispy Prosciutto topped with poached egg.
  13. Homemade Broth/Stock lasts how long?

    I usually keep a 2lt bottle in the fridge and use what I need at any given time. It sits in the fridge for weeks, never had any problems. I freeze the rest. Some I put into plastic zip lock bags to freeze as that make a good portion size. Never boil for making stock but will reduce stock for use in a sauce etc. My 2c.

    My wife and I would have Mayo & sweet chili sauce on our pouched eggs often. The wife still has sweet chili with hers. Give that a shot @Anna N
