This page is for Debs… I will add her pictures as she cooks and she can add her comments. Of course the ideal situation would be for her to be able to do it all by herself but as this is done by me and I haven’t the faintest idea how to change things (at the moment, anyway) this is how it will be done.
Long live amateurism!
Debbie’s first attempt was cooking the No Knead Bread
See that style? Netbook on the counter… glass of wine at hand (condensation beading on the glass…. she’s chilled that properly) and bread started. Full marks, that woman!
Next she did the slow roasted spiced lamb…. despite not liking couscous
Followed by the chillies…
Debs freely admitted she didn’t care for chillies but, you’ll notice, there isn’t a picture of the cooked chillies. That is because as soon as they were cooked they ate them. She has now made them several times and admits to thinking about them, longingly, mid afternoon and having to wait until the evening to make them.
Debs is now a chilli addict.
Her latest cooking escapade was porridge.
I’ll leave her to comment on how everything was received but in recognition of her excellent efforts to try things out… and because I know she doesn’t have one, The Omnivorous Bear is proud to award Debs with her very own spurtle. The first prize ever awarded by the site….An authentic Scottish porridge stirring stick!
Every home should have one.
The spurtle is now in the post to her but as we currently have a postal workers strike there’s no guarantee it will get there before next week.
Keep on cooking, Debs!
Debs then made the ginger ham…
this is what she said
The gingerness went to well with the ham, it was absolutely fabulous and even the 6 yr olds loved it and that’s saying something!!” … and the photo was a bit indistinct.
1Nov – Debs made the pumpkin soup
Tomorrow she will do the pumpkin seeds.
