    Mexican rice tomorrow.


    I enjoy a bit of filleted Trout , the Mackerel was for my husband. We try and have fish once a week.
    I think I overdid it indulging in chocolate sponge though. Serves me right!

    I came across a slow cooker whilst wondering around the new B&M store in Stratford earlier. I was very tempted - I'm a great fan of leaving food to cook for hours until it's extremely tender and flavoursome.

    I paid the princely sum of 15 for one years ago. Best thing I ever bought. That said, there's only the two of us, I'm not sure ours would cope with a family.

    Had the daughter over today and time got rather short...

    Couple of peppers and an onion sliced and gently sweated until the onions were translucent. Spicy sausages, browned. One bottle of sweet and sour sauce... Mix all together and heat gently for 15 minutes, serve on fluffy white rice.

    Not a scrap left, and one very cheesed off dog!

    Mediterranean shrimp and rice tonight.

    The good lady picked up a cheapish lump of beef earlier this week, so tomorrow I'm cooking a beef, onion, carrot and pearl barley casserole. We'll have that Monday and Tuesday with crusty bread. Scrummy!

    smoked salmon -half price from Asda - chips and parsley sauce.
    I love parsley sauce with chips, and as a treat I like tinned processed peas.

    Well, the casserole is on and smells delicious.

    Tonight we'll have a peach and chickpea curry. - Quick, easy and very tasty.

    Mrs Rebbonk's doing a steak pie for tonight. Must admit, looks good so far!

    I'll wash it down with a couple of good glasses of Jim Bean.

    I think we've got fish, potatoes peas and parsley sauce. I think (hope) Mrs Rebbonk will do the honours tonight. I have some online courses to catch up on and a book review to write.

    So, today I caught up on all I needed to. Still not sure where the morning went, but that's life.

    Tonight, we took the dog for a walk, dropped into the local and afterwards Mrs Rebbonk 'cooked' some Birdseye chicken burgers. I must say, that they weren't bad at all. Decent pieces of chicken, coated with what I took to be rice crispies.

    After going on a holiday to Italy to learn how to cook Italian food 18 months ago, I've finally got round to using the pizza recipe I learned and have invited some friends round to try it & sample my 1st attempt at home brew this weekend.
