What are you eating? (food porn)


Recommended Posts

spacing out in front of the laptop screen and then de debbil comes and perches on my shoulder 'say, man...ain't there sumpin' that you should be thinkin' about doin?' and then my mind wanders back to the toms, eggplant and tatties that I got in the fridge and a can of canellini beans that I got from makro a few weeks ago...

 

wash all veges and then quickly chop onions and garlic and fresh chiles...dip the toms in hot water to peel them and then use a neutral oil (safflower) to saute the onions, garlic and chiles in the soup pot...toss in 'the big three' cumin coriander and tumeric and simmer, then peel the toms and add to the pot and smash around a bit...let simmer fer about 10 mins then add the diced tatties with a stock cube and simmer fer about 15 mins...check the potatoes (mash gently with a fork) then if OK add the chopped eggplant and the beans and simmer fer 15 mins...then bob's yer uncle if ye got the timings right (the tatties and eggplant can turn into mush if yer not careful)...sure would be nice to have some nice crusty bread to eat it with...but I'm just this side of paradise...

 

try out some of yer favorite recipes offa the top of yer head to see what you come up with...we all need confidence in the kitchen...

we even got a special kweiteo pot for he preparation of the broth (most important) and then an insert for the noodles that you do for individual bowls...and then someone wakes up in the morning with a vision and gets the broth going and then a few hours later things are ready to eat...

 

tutsi is unaware and downstairs with the laptop and then a vision of delight appears on the stairs (usually one of the delectable 20 something long legged nieces in tiny shorts who was educated in Paris) with the goods in hand...'kweiteo, monsieur?'...

 

oooh la la...

Couple of spicy Thai salads for lunch these past few days. Traditional Somtam (top) and the cucumber version (tam daeng) underneath. Scrumptious light fare for the oppressive April heat. My mouth is still on fire! 🌶️

went to the local tescos the other day and they had green beans! ('runner' beans for our non US speaking friends) most of the time they only got the long beans coiled up that are a bit too pulpy for what I like, first time I'd seen them...

 

now, we got some tatties and a can of borlottis from the last trip to makro so whaddaya think I'm gonna do? eh? also clear out the veg bin in the fridge and grab the stuff that was forgotten about and about to go off, leafy greens and that, etc...

 

chop an onion and a head of garlic and dice the tots... and then dump the lot into the soup pot with plenty of olive oil...saute a bit with a bit of dried red flaked chile (gotta watch that stuff or it'll burn ye a new one) then add the washed and sliced green beans and saute a bit more...add a stock cube dissolved with water from the kettle to cover and simmer for 15 - 20 mins until the tots mash easily with a fork...toss in the drained and rinsed borlottis, add more water from the kettle if necessary and simmer for about 10mins and then toss in the washed and chopped leafy veg then cover and turn off the heat...ready to go in 5mins...

 

be nice to have some crusty bread to eat it with (as in a fresh VN baguette) and instead of looking at porn on the laptop I should be improving on the bread technique in the kitchen...it's nothing less than culinary blasphemy...so here I am with miserable buttered 'farmhouse' toast instead...

 

de lawd he moves in mysterious ways...virtue is it's own reward and etc...
