I am not really sure where the weekend went to. I don't think I did anything major, but it felt busy and I woke up this morning feeling that I needed another weekend!
I DID do a bit of cooking, though.
On Saturday, I made Feta Ravioli.
It was wonderful, and reminded us of Malta. Of course, it was the memory of Feta Ravioli from Malta that inspired me to make it in the first place! The kids loved it too, especially our younger son who is on a fitness kick and was happy when he read that feta is actually pretty good for you!
Sunday I cooked a lump of pork - slow roasted a roasting bag with a home made marinade - from memory it was soy sauce, 5 Spices, ginger, sugar, black pepper, chili powder, paprika and a squirt of sweet barbecue sauce for luck. It more or less fell apart when we tried to slice it. Mmmmmm.
I did Noodles and stir fry vegetables to go with it. There was also home made naan bread. Until recently I had only had the shop-bought version of this.
Nice enough. But then, a few weeks ago when I went to London for that weekend of wargaming, I had the fresh stuff. Ooh yeah, that was how it was supposed to be! So I got together the ingredients and worked away - a few extra ingredients, but generally no different to making normal bread or pizza bases. They only took 10 minutes to bake, so I was cooking them right along side the vegetables and noodles - when they came out of the oven I brushed them with melted butter and cut them into pieces. So good I forgot to take a photo! OK, strictly speaking, naan bread should go with curry and not stirfry, but it was still great and I can't wait to make more next time we DO have curry...
Maybe I will remember to take a photo next time too...
