Cooking for the Week

Try buying a large dutch pot. Really helps if you want to make like 10 portions of something and freeze it in seperate containers. Good things to make are stews, curries and pasta sauces. That way you can reheat them in the microwave for 10 minutes and cook your sidedish at the same time like rice, pasta or potatoes. Keep a range of them in the freezer so you don't have to eat the same thing all week. My favourites are Hungarian goulash and Jamaican curried goat.

If you feel like eating something a bit lighter, try making a few pre-mixed bags of stirfry vegetables with your favourite sauce (oyster, teriaki, sweet and sour) and freezing that. When you want to eat it, fry up your favourite meat or fish and then add the stirfry pack.

Warms salads are great too because they are so speedy. I make one with flash fried pollock fillet, crispy chorizo, grean beans, asparagus, potatoes, lettuce, avocado and a lemon dressing.

I hope this helps! Apologies if I've repeated the same things from other posts!

Leftover Fig flavored Goat Cheese

How about your goats cheese & caramelized onions baked inside filo pastry parcels, served with a fig and walnut salad? The textures are beautiful. When you bite into the crispy parcel and the melted goats cheese oozes out it's amazing!

What are you baking these days? May 2012 [old]

Just moved to a new house and within the first week I accidentally ran my neighbour over. I was reversing and didn't see him behind the van. He wasn't badly hurt at all. Anyway, as an 'oh shit, I'm soo sorry!' gesture I baked him a chocolate, chilli and ginger cake.
I used the Angela Nilsen Ultimate Chocolate Cake recipe and just added a finely diced, medium-hot chilli and a couple of table spoons of ginger powder.
For the topping, I made a dark chocolate ganache and decorated it with diced pieces of stem ginger and dried chilli flakes.
MMM cake makes everything better :)
