Hey well its me DH birthday 2mo and I want to make him something different, im always doing chicken with something so Id like 2 make some thing differen

homemade fish n chips!
i posted before how i do my chips and i make crispy battered fish using guiness and flour mixed together to a thick batter.. im useless with weights etc so i put some flour in a bowl and then add small amounts of guiness until it gets to a nice batter
then i fry in 4cm of oil turning until brown
Ill add that 2 me list cheers hun, I really need to start cooking more I enjoy it as well so no excuess really, im just pants when it comes 2 ideas
tonight we had chicken wraps for dinner,
i made chicken strips using breadcrumbs, egg and flour as i mentioned before then i baked them in the oven. opened a pack of tortilla wraps and put them in the microwave to warm, then loaded the wraps with lettuce and tomatoes for my husband and added peppers and onions to mine. i had mine with salsa out of a jar but my husband didnt have anything.
and i put some tortilla chips on the side!!
you could also try a pork casserole?
just put some chopped veg and some browned off pork in a casserole dish, add some stock,some thickener and some seasoning then put in the oven at gas mark 4 for an hour and a half then serve with fresh bread!
i think what ill do is ill come on this thread every day and update with what we had for dinner
yesterday we had a gammon joint which i roasted with honey and soy sauce, my husband had homemade chips and peas with his and i had mashed potato. served with fresh peas and sweetcorn
I now cook everything we eat from scratch too. I used to rely heavily on jars of sauces and thought it would be too much of a pain to cook completely from scratch. About 8 months ago I started making stuff from scratch, it is more time consuming but I get a kick out of knowing I've made it and I know exactly whats gone into it too.
I cook alot from Jamie Olivers Ministry of Food book, really easy recipies too.
this one sounds the ticket is it easy to make?
yeah its really simple
i boil my gammon joint for around an hour, preheat the oven to gas mark 6, criss cross the fat, in a pan heat equal amounts of honey and wholegrain mustard, add a dash of soy sauce (you can leave this out if you want) and 100ml of dry cider heat until it goes thick then spoon over the gammon joint
roast for about 25mins (obviously depending on the size of the joint
cheers ill try this 2night fingers crossed I dont blow it hahah what are all the ingredents that i need?
I looooove Taco Salad. It's a meal in itself!
Thousand island dressing
mince/veggie mine (I use veggie)
Cook off the mince with taco spice as per instructions of the pack.
Then layer everything in a bowl! I break up the taco shells into little pieces and do it: lettuce, sweetcorn, cheese, mince, taco, dressing.
That's it! It's SO yummy. I cooked this for the guys on base this week and they all wolfed it down and they hate salad
To make it low fat, I use veggie mince, low fat cheese and low fat dressing.
a ham joint/gammon joint
3tbp wholegrain mustard
some soy sauce (optional)
100ml dry cider
potatoes for chips
boil the ham/gammon for an hour, preheat an oven to gas mark 6,
put the honey, mustard and cider in a pan, bring to the boil and cook until it thickens
criss cross the fat on the ham joint, place in roasting tray
pour over the glaze mixture and roast in oven for around 25mins
Thank u ill be trying this fingers crossed
Fry off some onions in a pan and add the peas. Add the cream and simmer gently.
Add cooked spaghetti and stir.
Season generously with black pepper.
You can add parmesan, chicken, cooked prawns, asparagus....anything really. I just find the above it a good starting point for a nice base sauce.
let us know how it goes
I love cooking from scratch but i always run out of ideas and i rarely use recipes just kind of experiment. Its really satisfying and an ego boost when you make something from scratch and its a hit.
