    Lidl sweet bbq pork rib rack and some chips to go with them because I can't be bothered with much else at this time of night when the Mrs is on a late shift.

    Not bad in fairness and the meat falls of the bone.

    Hey cookers! What's the best pea for pea & ham soup? I've read about split peas, marrow-something etc.. I assume my frozen petit pois are not going to cut the mustard?!

    I'd generally use dried split peas.

    So went with onion/garlic plus yellow split peas dowsed in the vat of stock I saved from the ham earlier in the week. Ended up too runny so emptied a bag of frozen peas too. Started with onion/garlic and added some sour cream too. Blitzed it with the blender and threw in the ham, sprinkled with chili flakes.

    Bloody delish.

    I make pea soup quite often as it's something healthy I can make with stuff from the corner shop.

    Whole bag of peas (400g - 500g)
    Half an onion, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1 veg stock cube
    Half teaspoon english mustard
    Salt & pepper
    Bit of olive oil

    Cook onion in oil till soft, add garlic, cook for a bit longer, add peas and mustard and just about cover with stock. You can add more later if it's too thick. It's easy to make it too runny. Simmer for 15 minutes then blend (I pour it into a smoothie maker. A hand blended is OK but takes a while and is annoying). Add salt and pepper. Done. Add a dash more stock if it needs it. Add ham or fried bacon bits at the end if you want, I don't think it needs it though.

    This isn't for dinner (obviously; I'm not a maniac), but I thought I'd give sticky toffee pudding a go.



    Recipe I used omitted dates, but I thought I'd add some anyway, in both the cake and sauce (not a load though, who wants that).

    It sank a bit in the middle unfortunately, so I think it's probably going to be a bit dense, but fucking hell that sauce.

    Definitely chicken. And definitely something Mexican. That's as far as I've got.

    Christ, that looks like something I've produced. Out of my bum.

    Beware ecosse, competitors are on the loose!

    If you're shitting out tasty desserts, there may be a place for you on Britain's Got Talent.

    Anyway, with the comparisons with a slab of poo out of the way, here's a close-up.



    I don't want to be one of those arseholes that uses the word 'decadent' but... this might actually kill me.

    Ok, I take back my previous statement. The second photo does it a lot more justice and it looks pretty tasty.

    I'm trying to build up a resistance, as it's all we'll have to eat after tomorrow's election results come in.

    I made a sort-of sausage and baked bean casserole thing tonight. Browned some sausages in a pan, then removed them and sweated down some onions and mushrooms. Dash of soy sauce for those DEEP UMAMI FLAVOURS (I hate myself), then deglazed the pan (still hate myself) with a bit of chicken stock. Added in half a can of chopped tomatoes and a full can of beans (yes, I mean Heinz baked beans, none of this borlotti or 'garbanzo' nonsense), chopped up the sausages into bite-size pieces and threw them in too, and then the rest of the chicken stock, and let it simmer for a bit.

    Meanwhile, I peeled, sliced and par-boiled some potatoes. Then I put the sausage/bean/tomato gear in a casserole dish, topped it with the potato slices, put the lid on, and bunged it in the oven for half an hour. Grated cheese on top and grilled to finish.

    It was basically like a sausage and bean melt, but not in pastry.

    Oh yeah, I put carrots in it too. Thinking ahead, as we'll need to be able to see in the dark when the Brexit-related brownouts start.
