Feeling achey and cold today, so I made a batch of pastry then did a quick treacle tart. Made two flan cases so I can do a lemon meringue at the weekend and something else (bakewell?). Pastry is good for you, isn't it?

The teriyaki (sp?) rabbit belly jerky was FANTASTIC!!! The only problem?

It never got the chance to be all finished and done with. Little fingers discovered they could sneak into the oven and nab the bits. Teach me to set a bad example that will Laughing

Tortilla wraps with grilled chicken, and a bit of this and that. I sprinkled mine with slithers of fresh Red Scotch Bonnet, which was properly hot ! C-H Jnr tried a slither, and ran a few laps of the house, drank a pint of water and decided that it was a bit too hot ...

Just stew and dumplings - but what a stew! The shin of beef from our local butcher was so melting it is difficult to describe. Accompanied by parsnip, swede, turnip and onion from the garden. Potatoes and carrots not, sadly.
Made a double portion, but could quite easily cook some more dumplings and finish it now.

Plan for tonight is to pick some scotch bonnets and make Levi Roots' Martinique coconut chicken. It will use up some butternut squash and aubergines too.

At the weekend - Chocolate Dorset Naga chilli, measured hottest chilli in the world in 2008 - I tasted some raw. It was ... rather ... hot. I used the rest to make some Dorset Naga and Scotch bonnet hot sauce. I may give some to selected victims for christmas Twisted Evil

Tonight it is going to be Pork and Quince casserole in cider, served with potato and celeriac mash.

Year and a half old, heritage breed, Blue Slate turkey. Jointed up and slow roasted for many hours.

Tastes nothing like turkey but is so good we keep having to tear ourselves away from the pan Laughing

I'd edit out the typo in the first word We not Wew (!) in the last post but it won't let me

we've just decided on mushrooms and onions ( both need eating up) in a tomato sauce with pasta for supper.

we'll start cooking when Nigel Slater is over

Yesterday we finished up the carrot and lentil soup by adding the remains of a tin of tomatoes that Miss JG had opened to cook Monday's supper. It eked out the soup nicely for two servings and i finished off the curried parsnip.

today I made a sausage casserole - small sausages, bacon, lentils, carrots and tinned tomatoes. There is enough left over for me and Mr JG tomorrow. There's even enough mashed potato.
