We’re on a Mexican tirado, Quesadilla’s with spicy green sauce

We had slow cooked roast Moroccan chicken last night for dinner, which meant stacks of leftovers. Of course all the potatoes cooked in duck fat were snaffled up by SO last night, as he was putting the leftovers away. Damnit, he does it every time! I cook more than I need, so I can have…… Continue reading We’re on a Mexican tirado, Quesadilla’s with spicy green sauce

Me, on the other hand, shops at Woolies, the fresh food markets, Asian grocers and…… Continue reading Brussel sprouts, cauliflower and chorizo spaghetti, who would’ve thunk it?

Potato and leek soup, with whatever is in the bottom of the fridge.

I’ve been given a big bag of spuds from dad, and just happen to have 3 leeks, a cauli and some bacon languishing in the bottom of my fridge. We eat so much meat in this house, it’s time for soup. SO laments, “But soup isn’t a meal. Even meat soup isn’t a meal”. Unless…… Continue reading Potato and leek soup, with whatever is in the bottom of the fridge.

Slow cooker Beef Bourguignon

It’s hard to come up with new and different slow cooker beef recipes. I’m part of a slow cooker Facebook group with over 13,000 members, so the recipes are diverse, different and sometimes downright odd. But there’s never a dull moment or lack of inspiration, if you’re a slow cooking fan, that is. And that…… Continue reading Slow cooker Beef Bourguignon
