    Dinner 2020

    @Kim Shook Thanks! Exactly what I was going for. Really wanted a good old fashioned Englush style roast - conceeded the pumpkin for my Aussie audience. Yes the enamels nest. Some on purpose some by happy accident (half belonged to my grandmother and I had sent over when I spotted them in the 'dump' pile on facetime 😂). Stuffing balls are my cheaty get ahead. Stale bread and sage blitzed to crumbs, combine with cooled sweated onion and garlic, bind with egg. Roll in to balls and cook for 20 mins in a little stock. Then I usually freeze for a quick side that looks like I tried hard.

    7 adults and my kidlet. I introduced 5 adults to Swede for the first time!

    Roast Lamb and Trimmings for us. I'm only allowed to make roasts when we have company as I tend to have scaling issues. Think I used nearly every Enamel pan I have! Lamb Leg Rubbed with Garlic Lemon and Rosemary. Very bad pic. In the last 20 mins of preparing a Roast I get frantic - and pictures add another layer 😂. It worked out medium heading to well. Husdudes brothers have a fear of pink 🤦‍♀️. Roasties Butternut Pumpkin with Sage (forgot to take a before photo). Yorkies Broc & Cauli
  4. And Ps. No, this is absolutely not one I will take for the team. I'm still scarred from the 1 mountain dew chip I tried 🤢. Even the KID chose to throw them away.
  5. Please make it stop, I want to get off.
  6. It is a silly thread. It's nice to be silly sometimes 🤷‍♀️. Noone is wrong noone is right, everyone does things different, we all agree on that. Plus we still get to judge the way other people do things, but we can laugh about it in a nice friendly way 😂.

    I didn't cook tonight, that's more relevant to the other thread on mojo, but I did put together the quintessential Australian ICBF to cook meal. Bread roll, Coleslaw, Rotisserie Chicken. I was actually okay to cook, but hubby came home from the big town with a chook in a bag and the rest. Comfort food I guess.
  8. Hey this is a judgement free zone! Like someone already said, there's no really wrong way as long as your enjoying yourself! Cultural mistakes are a different kettle of fish. I also do the sequential eating but I'm not as bad as I was as a kid. And even I know I did that "wrong" I start with my least favourite thing on the plate and work my way up to the favourite thing - by which time favourite thing is no longer at its best and usually cold 😬. Sauce / Ketchup is for dipping only! I also do not understand smotherers. Messy.
  9. I was curious, I have decided to create this topic (that has probably been discussed before) because I have been deemed a weirdo by my husband for the way that I eat certain foods. It started innocently the other night when I told my son he was eating his Lasagne "weird". He eats Lasagne by scraping the top level of cheese/bechamel off and eating that first, then consumes the rest. My husband said I had no right to say that because I roll the whole top layer of cheesy pasta off the lasagne, put it to the side and eat that last 😂. He just eats the layers in one spoon like a normy.
  10. Woah. Wakes up in Australia to tinpiegate 😁. I agree mainly with that review @rotuts - I can't lie and say I didn't often wonder if it was cat food with a pastry hat. Especially on a lazy day when I was served it still in the tin. Hat was worth the cat though.
  11. At the risk of being booted from the forum, I must confess, one of my favourite childhood meals was a steak and kidney pie from a.. ahem.. a can. Fray Bentos was the brand. I thought they were magic with the way the pastry rose out of the tin - my favourite part was the uncooked soggy pastry right on top of the gravy... shall I see myself out? Not my image screen grabbed from a google search. They sell them over here but my husband would not get over me spending $8.50 on a pie thats in a can.

    Dinner 2020

    It's that time of year again when the mecury begins rising to the mid thirties, the air con switches back on - and my cold northern hemisphere soul turns its seasonsally confused attention to rich brown gravys and stews and all things root vegetable 🤦‍♀️. Blade steak, onion, carrot, swede, turnip, red wine and stock etc
  13. Our bakery is not open on weekends so I haven't taken that sausage roll for the team yet, but I did go to a party, and to spare @haresfur these are 'Party Pies/Rolls'. Just small pies and sausage rolls (beef) that are seemingly a staple of any Australian youth / Footie game goer. The pastry is sh!te, the meat filling is questionable - but pretty much everybody that grew up here loves them. I don't hate them, but then I would eat pretty much any meat in pastry ever. But not with Ketchup. Heathens.
  14. Its homemade @rotuts, trying to recreate a northern hemisphere mcmuffin - it's me that can't melt cheese 😂 For authenticity.
  15. In our little part of the world we don't have a Mcdonalds, and sometimes thats all that you want to fix the leftovers of the night before. So every now and then my husband arrives home in the early hours of the AM and hands his ever patient (ha!) Wife a pack of muffins and sausages... 🙄😂.
  16. I am with you on the beef thing. Everything sausagey is beef by default here in Australia - which is wrong - pork first. Spent a while thinking everyone was feeding me mouldy food when I first got off the boat and stayed at a hostel (cheap bbq beef sausage- when expecting pork). The taste was wrong. I will endeavour to get to the local bakery just to offend you guys. Not only does their sausage roll contain beef, it is also filled with chia seeds.
  17. My only input regarding pie flipping and how I serve pies right side up - Burnt fingers 😂. Upside down, Inside out, Pie is Pie is Good.

    Steak, Chips & Salad for Monday Tea. Oven Fries - slightly over done, I have an air frier but couldn't be bothered fetching it out. Anchovy butter for the rib steak (lemon, wholegrain, anchovies, capers, garlic & onion). Beetroot, Carrot & Onion with Rabbit food for salad. I tried the constant flip method for the first time for the steak, flipped every minute for 6 minutes total. I have to say, having been firmly camp don't touch, it wasn't bad. Although I probably wouldn't have burnt the chips if I had left it alone!

    Lunch 2020

    It was fine. I had some shrinkage as you can see. Base was a little under. I am a lazy cook, and I believe really good shortcrust requires speed to keep the butter cold. Speed I cannot be bothered to have on a lazy Sunday 😄. (Or a MTWTFS).

    Lunch 2020

    I made a Quiche. With Bacon, Onion & Cheese. Everyone knows that spring, when the temperature is rising above 30c again is the perfect time to dabble with melty melty shortcrust 🙄. My first batch of onion turned green. Weird. I threw it out after some googling.

    Dinner 2020

    Freezer Finds Pael-Nah. Featuring frozen peas, some hotdogs that were deemed 'yucky' when had in buns so went in to the cold ( because I can't stand throwing out food ). Couple of chicken thighs, rice onion garlic tomato tumeric etc. Needless to say when I told the kid we were having 'hot dog rice' he was really disapointed when I gave him this and not a hotdog with a side of plain white rice.

    Dinner 2020

    I've been put on a shopping ban until I clear some freezer / pantry space. It's got to the stage where I have flour in the kids toy storage - and I don't even bake! So pretty boring meat and veg meals for the boys. Giant pork chop with BBQ marinade. Porterhouse, Egg and Veg. And yes I know us "Dead Eggers" are the flat earthers of the foodie world but some people don't like goo! (And hey, my son dosen't eat egg and I saved your eyes from his side - shop bought plain, white, pasta - no EVOO, no butter, no S&P, no ch
  24. So many beautiful sausage rolls. Anyone else picking imaginary flakes of pastry from their clevage reflexively? Just me? Carry on. 😄
