Oh no. Amazon sent my new cookery books out with the awful Hermes courier. They tried once and sent them back, shame on them. I will have to reorder them and wait, again. Wonderful. On the plus side, it snowed. Yay snow day, two days off work – admittedly unpaid – but nevertheless, off work. Also, I mentioned we went food shopping, at last. Nearly seven weeks since we went last. It does mean that hopefully I’ve bought everything for the whole week of noms and won’t need to buy expensive last minute ingredients at the expensive store on the way home from work. Bonus.
Plans For This Week
– Hungarian Goulash
– Levesbe Galuska (lit Soup Dumplings) – also Hungarian
– Mushy Pea Curry, Slimming World Style
– Seaside Fish ‘n’ Chips with Mushy Peas
– Indian Barfi
– Nutella Cookies
– Tteok [this was word of the day on my other blog!]
I used to go to Slimming World and a lot of people swore by Mushy Pea Curry – it’s full of super speed foods [metabolism boosters, low in calories, high in density etc etc] and it supposedly tastes great. Now I’m still in Christmas mode, so I’ll try anything. Even mushy pea curry.
Favourite Food Of The Week – Kedgeree. So it didn’t look like the picture. So what, it tasted good. Hot too, which isn’t a bad thing. And filling, especially good for the budget when a bag of rice is around 10p.
Worst Food Of The Week – Pizza dough. After several attempts it still failed. The toppings were lovely as I splashed out on ‘authentic’ italian meats and cheese. But the dough was a disaster. Funnily enough, pizza dough appeared on todays Saturday Morning Kitchen and James Martin blames my yeast. Maybe third time lucky.
Til next week. Nomnomnom.
