Decided to make 2am cornbread cause why the hell not?
Ive done that, but healthy food isn't my bag...
Minestrone soup with bacon , onion, garlic , carrot, celery, tomato, cabbage, kidney beans and risoni.
My wife made banana egg pancakes for breakfast. Solid healthy alternative to regular pancakes.
I'm busting out spaghetti & meatballs tonight. We had a cook until recently but had to let her go due to COVID-19 basically halting our income. Going to have to get creative to avoid bankrupting myself ordering delivery...
I've had some lamb shanks on the go since late last night. Another hour or so & Its time to dig in.
6 shanks tossed in seasoned flour, then brown. Then cook off a red onion, a few cloves of garlic, roughly chopped carrot, zucchini & capsicum. Combine in a big wide saucpan & add 1kg diced fresh tomatoes, 1/2 cup red wine, 1 cup beefstock. Cook on as low as you can for at least 12 hours. At the end add some chopped basil, oregano & salt & pepper. Serve with mashed spuds.
I want some of this. I imagine it would also make a great pie filling.
I was thinking exactly the same thing re pies. It’d be awesome I reckon. Actually I reckon ive got 3 or 4 recipes that would make awesome pie filings... pity I’ve got NFI about the pastry side of things, haha. I reckon I need to fix that.
Made a great one-sheet dinner tonight. Spicy German sausage, potato, peppers, black beans, and broccoli with a little oil drizzled over it, spices for flavoring, and then an hour in the oven.
Made a Sri Lankan lamb curry, with a stir-fried green bean and curry leaf side dish and flatbreads.
Made tuna cannelloni for dinner, a favourite in our house, took a pic which came out lousy and didn't do it justice but the end product got devoured.
Made an amazing Mexican nacho skillet tonight.
Turkey mince, peppers, onions, and garlic browned together. Throw in a cup of uncooked basmati rice and let it crisp up. Add tinned tomatoes and 1.5 cups of water. Let it simmer for about 15 minutes. Add seasoning, chili peppers, jalapenos etc. and let it cook another 5-10.
When it's all done, grate some cheese, drizzle some queso & salsa, and garnish with corn chips. f**king mint.
Turkey mince is now widely available in Australia and i made a meat loaf out of it once and liked it so much that now i only make it with turkey mince now and not beef.
Just put on beef bourguignon...
Gonna have it with a Clonakilla Pinot Noir
bourguignon is a timeless classic, so much amazing flavour!
One of my faves.
I'm usually torn between doing a bunch of Malay (used to live there) Vietnamese, Italian and classic French cooking.
Although not tonight. Corned beef
Indian Bajhis, I love these things
classic euro dishes are classic for a reason. Made a big pot of Bolognaise ragu the other day (basically spag bol for people who can actually cook). 50/50 beef and veal mince, some bacon, and lots of onion/carrot/celery, cooked slowly in a bit of wine and stock with only a small amount of tomato paste for 2+ hours then a cup or so of milk stirred in. No garlic or herbs apart from one fresh bay leaf. So much flavour stirred into some fresh egg fettucine.
Pho Bo...still cooking....4hrs now
I did beef Ragu the other day with every thing on your recipe but the celery. I used half a cup of toatato puree and a t\blespoon of tomato paste. But I added oregano and a sprinkling of chilli flakes with the bayleaves. Cooked for 4 hrs.
Baked leatherjackets with lemon garlic potatoes, served with simple green leaves and a couscous , capsicum and pomegranate salad
