    My kids complained for a while that everything I cooked tasted burnt although it wasn't, :confused:
    Until I found a well cooked croissant up the back of the oven from weeks ago,...... oh no dads in the kitchen again.

    Just to continue the chilli theme.
    I'm sitting in Broome at Matso's Brewery and they do a mean chilli beer. You can taste the oil in it. It burns on the way down and is ice cold.
    Unfortunately I haven't found it as a take away anywhere but you can get Angry Ranga. A chilli ginger mix.

    I did a kilo of Chinese pork belly / rib strip in the dehydrator once. Only had a short cord and the kitchen was busy.
    So I put it down low

    Came home and one of the kids had let the dog in.
    Karsha was laying on the floor with the biggest smile on here face And a very fat belly

    :mad::mad::mad::mad:

    :)

    Not a very attractive offering but very yummy.
    Biscuit base, with layers of shredded coconut, choc chips and pecan pieces then a tin of condensed milk poured over the top and baked until browned. Then drizzle white chocolate over the top.

    I also made a chicken pie for tomorrow nights dinner - its always better when its made the day before.

    Sure Chris - I use leftover BBQ chicken as it adds a nice flavour

    Herbed Chicken Pie

    2 sheets of frozen puff pastry
    egg or milk for glazing

    Filling:
    60g butter
    2 tablespoons plain flour
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
    1 clove garlic
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup white wine
    1/2 cup cream
    2 cups assorted cooked vegetables (e.g. strips of carrot, celery, zucchini, onion, mushrooms)
    500g chicken, chopped and cooked (1/2 a BBQ chicken is easy for this)

    Turn on oven to 200C. Blind bake your bottom sheet of pastry while you are making your filling. I always line my dish with baking paper.

    1. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add flour, thyme, garlic, parsley and salt & pepper (if using). Cook 1-2 mins.
    2. Off the heat gradually add in the milk. Stir continuously over medium heat until sauce thickens and begins to boil. Reduce heat.
    3. Add wine, cream, vegetable and chicken. Stir through and simmer gently for a few minutes then add to the pie dish that you have already partially cooked the base puff pastry.
    4. Add the top sheet of pastry crimping the edges then pierce in a few spots with a fork to allow the steam to escape. Glaze with either egg or milk then you can add some sesame seeds if you want and I also give a shake of chicken salt. Cook at 200C for about 35min or until golden brown.

    Always tastes better the next day!

    You could replace the chicken with salmon or tuna if preferred.

    Certainly looks good.
    Could use fish you suggested but try chicken first.
