    I don’t “do food”, but I do other stuff. So I’ve cooked up a cunning plan for our kitchen.

    Going to extract the 30 year old Termite tasty suspended “oregano“ beams and joists, the “weetbix” dishwasher water damaged Structafloor sheeting, and replace with a firm robust tasteless base of Steel Galvanised beams and posts, topped with a delicate carefully crafted layer of Compressed Fibre Cement sheeting........ then garnished with a sprinkling of new Terracotta tiles.

    Should be a recipe to “see me out”........


    Back on topic, keep posting up your mouth watering creations.

    That is one neat menu happening in the kitchen...........I think a good Aussie Shiraz would wash it all down nicely !

    My comfort food at the moment is mujadara
    A simple mix of lentils (brown) rice, caramelised onions, garlic, cinnamon and cumin
    I add eggplant as well.

    Butterflied chicken on the BBQ and home made hummus.

    Oh - and copious amounts of chilli and garlic

    simple, easy, cheap and great Sunday meal

    I have found that using left over roast meat makes the best shepherds pie - regardless if it is beef, pork or lamb :)

    Shepherds pie last night from a recipe I picked up from a bloke doing lockdown cooking videos.
    Do not check this out if swearing offends...

    But so far I have done "End Of Days Bolognaise", "Wham bam, thank you Lamb", "Chuck a sickie soup", and yesterday "Self Pie-solation"
    All have been brilliant to eat, and easy to cook. Friends have done "The crowd goes mild chicken curry", and others, with similar good results.
    His 3 or 4 minute video recipes do tend to take rather a lot longer to cook.

    Cooking, proper cooking, is such a great skill to have......
    It really is easy to flash up a tasty meal from pretty basic ingredients.
    Some really clever people making great, relatable clips out there !
    Cheers,

    Nat's recipes are all based on non packet stuff, fresh ingredients only.
    And stolen rosemary.
    Simple good food.
    And if you can get past his looks and swearing, they are really entertaining videos.
    My daughters are impressed that I like a bloke that I would cross the road to avoid if I met him in the street.
