Had a lovely risotto with lobster tail, tiger prawns, broad beans, chili and garlic for dinner last night (at Strada in Brum before the Kaisers gig).

Today I had "Oats so Simple" & a cuppa for breakfast, and I'll be making eggs benedict for lunch in about an hour's time.  Dinner tonight will be steak pie, mash, and gravy with a steamed vegetable medley (carrots, runner beans, and leeks), and pancakes for dessert.

I purposely don't bring snack foods through to my study because I know I'd just stuff my face all day without realising how much I'm eating.

Bren, when are you inviting me over to dinner? YUM. (The 26 hour flight could be a problem). I can smell it now. The eye fillet and the bacon. I've cooked those potatoes once - when I was training to teach Hospitality.

I had takeaway fish and chips tonight for dinner which is rather a let down compared to your dinner.

Yesterday I had sultana bran with skim milk, a slice of raisin toast, 2 biccies for morning tea, an egg and mayo sandwich on low GI bread.

Now for dinner last night, I had fillet mignon. It was on the menu at the restaurant I went to last night and after all the discussion on it, I had to have it. Its just a piece of eye fillet of beef about 6-7cm in diameter x 5cm high wrapped in bacon and cooked on a grill or hot plate. I like mine rare. YUM. Did not have fancy vegies with it, just on a bed of roast vegies.

With regard to the bean discussion, I have it on good authority that Aldi beans beat Heinz hands down. They all taste the same to me but bean connoisseurs should be able to tell the difference.
 
Been bad today - had a steak bake, a cheese & ham pasty and an apple turnover from Greggs. No idea what I'm having for dinner but I'm not in the least bit hungry so it might be nothing!

Branston beans in this house.  Used to be Sainsbury's own - Jnr wouldn't touch anything else - but they went horrible over the last year, and after much trial and error we discovered Branston to be the best alternative.  /offtopic

We had pancakes at lunchtime today - crepe style and american / scotch drop-cake style - some with lemon & sugar, others with Nutella.  It was our Shrove Tuesday since this is the first time we've all been home and I've had time to make them!

Stupidly unhealthy day for us all round; we've just decided to have fish supper for tea.  Whistle

I made pancakes (crepe style) for Chloe on Friday. I love them with sausages and bacon for breakfast but this was Friday night so we spread Nutella over them, rolled them up, drizzled maple syrup over them and had some M&S coconut and mango ice cream on the side. Fabulous!

That looks like quite good value. If I wasn't a spinster I'd buy it myself.
 
Only had a toastie today, I'm too tired to eat :(
 
Oh but I had a large Dominos pizza on Saturday night. Whatever you get, replace the pizza sauce with barbecue sauce and get garlic butter on it. Amazing. I'm not a big fan of pizza but I would take Dominos anytime.

I'm quite annoyed with M&S just now - they seem to have stopped doing the Taw Valley Cheddar dip and the Garlic & Herb (my absolute favourite). And they never seem to have the Natural Cotton oil but are awash with the horrible other kinds. Their spray starch is the best, you can smell it off your clothes all day and it's lovely.

Back OT - I've had toast and Primula cheese & chive for breakfast, sweet & sour vegetable soup and a ham salad sandwich for lunch and braised steak and roast potatoes for dinner. Was starving after yesterday.

I cooked this beaut crab dish last night. I used green blue crabs (because they are ready to cook) as opposed to mud crabs (they're bought alive and kicking - I can't handle that). Cooked it in ginger, garlic, shallots and stock. Served with noodles cooked in the reserved sauce. Finger licking good and messy too.

The inagaural series of the Australian version of Masterchef finished last week. The 2 finalists had to make this chocolate dessert that had so many components to it as one of the 3 challenges. They printed the recipe in the paper on Wednesday, so I decided to give it a go. Apparently to order this in the restaurant it originated from (Aria), it costs $24.00 per serve. I've made all the components except the chocolate half pipe (I don't have a sweets thermometer). The dessert consists of a chocolate tart with chocolate pastry and filling, a topping like a ganache, chocolate macaroons and chocolate sorbet. I do have an icecream maker, so I've just finished making that. It taste fantastic.

Well its a chocoholics delight!!. Having said that, I don't know if I would try making it again - so much work, and the quantities make a lot more than needed. If I went to Aria, $24.00 is worth the amount of work that goes into it.

http://www.masterchef.com.au/aria-chocolate-tart.htm - Aria Chocolate dessert

The amount of washing up I generated for the dessert was horrendous.


Posted By: MargiABC
Date Posted: 27 July 2009 at 13:43
I finally plated the dessert as per picture in the link, except I cheated and used a tubular chocolate filled wafer biscuit instead of the choclate pipe. I couldn't eat it all - it was so rich.

Balmain bugs are members of the lobster family, often called a slipper lobster. If you've ever seen microspopic pictures of some bugs, they kind of look like that, except they are about 15 cm long.

Here's a link with piccies.

I accompanied my sister to a gluten free expo today held by the Australian Coeliac Society(she is gluten intolerant). It was a good day. They had quite a few exhibitors with a wide range of gluten free foods to sample and sell. I must say I ate so many samples I didn't need lunch. The foods I saw and tasted today were so good compared to what was available when my sister was first diagnosed 9 years ago.
I ate lots of chocolate biscuits, crackers which almost tasted like regular crackers (my sister is sick of eating rice crackers and these were great), beef pie, sausage rolls (I went for 2 samples of these), muffins, cakes, marshmallows, banana bread, pizza bases.
My sister went prepared with her own shopping cart and a few spare shopping bags, for all the items she bought.
