Beef tongue in Madeira sauce.

I still had the readily cooked tongue in the freezer, cut it in thin slices and just steam it mixed with a little garlic, one onion, pepper, soup powder (bio), a little orange juice (I'd use apple, but no need to let the orange go to waste) and the Madeira.

We will eat it with instant potato mash spiced up with nutmeg and a bit of brown butter.

 

Comfort food.

Don't throw away the seeds - they are edible. Spicy.

 

- er, what do you do with them then?

Do you need to roast them or anything?

Metall's Super Fast Chicken Legs:

Loosen the chicken skin and sort of roll or pull it back like a sock, but do not cut off.

Liberally dust the meat with curry powder (or slather on ajvar or any other tasty paste).

Roll the skin back on. Sprinkle salt on the skin.

Put in a roasting pan (preferably with a little water in it and the chicken raised on a grate).

Roast super hot and quick for cruipy skin and tender meat - 20 minutes at 250 Centigrade (500 F).

Cook rice while chicken is in the oven, maybe add a salad etc. Yum!

 No need to roast them, but you may use them as a substitute for ground pepper - or look up the recipes online...

Thanks Katheliz for the tips. Mum taught me the tip re dusting sultanas in flour. Liked the idea of rum soaked( save water I say!).

1/2 a banana is the same as 1 egg, so I often use this as a substitute to make cakes vegan.

My favourite to make is a Vegan Earl Grey Tea Cake :)

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, there was a shortage of peanut butter in this country.

 

Now it seems there is a shortage of yeast. Yes, yeast. Neither fresh nor dry to be found in all the 5+ stores that I've visited this past week. Odd. Have written to Dr. Oetker, am awaiting a reply.

 

Not to worry, though, as this is sourdough week for me.

 

I seem to remember someonce once missing Marmite, and saying that the little jars here are so expensive. So, though I've forgotten who said that, here's something (for all Marmite lovers) that I ran across while researching rye breads:

In case one has nothing else to do this week. Enjoy.

Being in the US, I have several packets of dried yeast, and a jar of dried yeast I keep in the fridge for emergencies. Instead, I need flour. Any chance of arranging a swap? :)

Oddly Baked Beans is one of the things that keeps being out of stock when my food shopping is delivered.. considering how many they normally have in store and with the limits here in the UK of a max of 3 or 4 items depending on the supermarket, I'm surprised that this is the case.

Seems more like a demand-booster to me.

You probably didn't live in halls of residence with full catering in England, haha. 

 

PS- What is appealing at Mac & Cheese :)?

beans on toast is goopy starch on what should be somewhat crispy starch...which seems like a lose lose.  

 

I don't think I need to defend mac and cheese.  Tender pasta with melty cheese, baked until it gets crispy around the edges?  Oh ew.  

 

:P
