    Dinner 2019

    I'm an English girl living in semi outback Australia whose only 'American Experience' was Disney Land Florida circa 2001. I do not Cornbread. Teach me your ways. Edit to Add: I know there will be a thread or 6, off to find..

    Thank you so much. Re Stuffing balls. So simple. Basically you save up every single roll / heel of bread that missed the eat fresh cut in the freezer until your significant other looses their mind. (I find for maximum effect its better that you don't store said rolls together - more a haphazard, every third package is a stale roll type of situation). I process to crumbs, blitz one or two onions. Ton of Sage. Bind with egg and squidge. Cook for 25 mins around the roast or, if not roasting meat I cook in my dripping reserve - because heart disease is unfortunately tasty. 🤷‍♀️

    CantCookStillTries: Series of Unfortunate Events. I have not had the energy to cook in a long time. Today I tried. Ain't She Pretty, Rolled Fore Rib. Final stages Over Sized Retro Roast. Tick. Carrot, Beef, Gravy, Broc, Cauli, Mashed Swede, Sage & Onion stuffing balls, Peas, Yorkie, Roasties. Hubby gets held up/ I have no desire to eat? That's a wrap.

    It's not pretty, fancy or hard work but it was delicious, comforting and nostalgic. Jacket Potato with Beans & Cheese. A staple of my Uni diet.. but back then I made it in the Microwave - which resulted in a distinct lack of Jacket.

    Beautiful Meals Guys. Beautiful. You know I freely admit my failings. Disasters. Mistakes. Many mistakes were made. 🥂🍻🤢🤣 I did try and redeem myself tonight after yesterday. But the picture is as out of focus as I am.

    A "Mixed Grill". I'd like to argue it was a balanced meal but there were 3 Pork products to 1 each of Lamb, Beef & Chicken 🤷‍♀️

    Lunch 2019

    Not topic friendly but wanting to learn. I had hoarded a couple of lamb leg bones (in the freezer) to make stock. It was the first time I had tried lamb stock, intended for a barley based soup, but it smelled. Not bad exactly but ... strong. I have no problem with the smell of lamb or mutton whilst cooking or cooked ... but the stock whiffed "strong". It tasted fine but the smell made me throw it out just in case. Does lamb stock have a strong smell whilst cooking? Much more so than beef? Am I an idiot?

    Lunch 2019

    I bought some pork sausages that (to me) were horrible - heavy on the Fennel. So deskinned, added Sage & White Pepper, sweated onion, carrot and spinach. Partially cooked the sausage meat to defat a little - combine with a little faffing about and Voila! Lunchbox fodder for the small dude.

    Lunch 2019

    Lunch Al Desko from the only food establishment in walking distance from my work - The Servo / Petrol / Gas Station. Chicken Ceaser Wrap. It wasn't bad, actually kinda tasty, and according to the label, only 8 hours old at the time I purchased it. Was it worth $12.50? Probably not. But I could only manage half (due to size) and it was way better than any of the hot box offerings.

    Dinner 2019

    Grabbed a bag of baby potatoes lured by the promise on the bag that they were 'perfect' for potato salad. I have yet to find an Australian potato that resembles the golden waxy new potatoes of my childhood. So yesterdays side of simple boiled Pots and butter was a little meh. Tonight's reincarnation is much more pleasing and I didn't bother to make a 'main' for this side.

    Apologies. Slow Cooker, six hours on low, no liquid. Meat was premarinated and the instructions I recieved were from he who raised the Moo and prepped its meat. My own googling leads me to believe not long enough for the collagen to break down / maybe needed liquid?

    So I tried to cook and ruined Beef Ribs for the first time! Followed the butchers instruction of 6 hours low. Worst thing I've ever cooked. Just rubber. I didn't even try mine after watching hub grimace, saw and choke through a couple of bites. Anything I can do to repurpose them? Bin? Luckily I always make too much potato salad.
