  • My favourite dinner

    I do enjoy a varied range of food, so I wasn't sure which meal I eat/enjoy the most. So I decided on this one because it's easy to stick in the oven and very tasty :D

    Sausage and chips

    It's home made potato wedges (chips in other words) with sausage ( meat or vegetarian ones) and peas. Instead of gravy I usually use French or wholegrain mustard.

    Method:
    Cut up several large potatoes according to required quantity in half lengthwise, then in half again, then again until you have some nice thick pieces. (Delia Smith recommends they are soaked in cold water for a while to get rid of the starch but I don't usually bother).
    Put into a large bowl and put a little olive oil on and sprinkle ground sea salt and black pepper on. Mix well, then transfer to a metal baking tray and put into a hot oven (about gas mark 6 or 7) for approx 40 mins or until browned.

    Add sausages into the same tray at the beginning if the cooking process, making sure they get some oil on them and cook until thoroughly cooked through and browned to your liking.

    I also add a few sprigs of fresh rosemary from the garden during cooking. It smells heavenly :D

    Add cooked garden peas (fresh or frozen) or other veg if you prefer.

    Serve with side salad, gravy (if used) or mustard/ brown sauce.

  • Food glorious .......

    I have a few favourite meals that I throw together, but a Saturday night just has to be my easy spag bol, except there is no spag but twists, and the bol probably isn't typically genuine.

    In sauce pan throw in some roughly chopped or sliced onion [usually use a red one] and mushrooms, fry then a little in olive oil, add the mince, stir until mixed and coloured.  Add the knorr beef stock pot and the knorr mixed herb flavour pot and a can of chopped tomatoes, stir, bring to a decent manly simmer, put the lid on.

    At this point I usually do some else like empty the washer/dryer, or load it, or put away dishes and clear messy area.  After about 10 mins I put the pot of water on to boil to cook my pasta twists.

    Once cooked, serve, and devour making glorious tasty noises.

    The absolute best bit comes next Saturday.  I usually make a double portion bolog, one portion goes into the freezer.  So next Saturday I removed frozen portion from freezer, place in micro for 10 minutes on defrost and start the pasta water to boil.  When the water is a good rolling boil add the two-ish handfuls of twists and leave to cook at a reasonably vigorous simmer.  Micro pings, using warmed spoon stir the defrosted bolog and out back into the micro for 2 minutes.  When micro bings, dish up and devour.

    What I cannot fathom is why the second portion tastes so much yummier than the first.

    I do the same with my chicken curry, beef stew, steak kidney casserole, Somerset pork ........... but it does not matter which day of the week I have those :p

  • One of my favourite things, Dinner.

    What is your favourite meal for dinner and why?
    Dinner time for me, I know, in other places called the evening meal, is about 6pm, and the ingredients are,
    One large potato, one large egg and three rashers of bacon. 
    At 5pm the potato is first microwaved for 5 mins and then wrapped in foil, placed in the oven set at 180 untill required. At about 5.45pm return to the kitchen, remove foil from the baking potato and paint on a thin coat of cooking oil, return to oven, this browns the skin. 
    Heat frying pan with a little oil on stove top and start to fry the bacon, after three mins turn bacon over and break the egg in to the frying pan. Remove baked potato from oven, cut in half lengthways and fork butter in to each half, add salt and mash the contents of each half inside its skin.  Remove the now ready bacon and egg from the frying pan and place on plate with the baked potato. Preparation time about 6 mins plus the 5 mins at start. 
    I will probably start writing my own recipe book next week.
    Now, tell us about YOUR favourite in a new post.
