    Today I'm roasting a duck with pork, apricot and orange stuffing with a roast chicken and sage and onion stuffing accompanied by king Edward roast potatoes ( the best for roasting ), Savoy cabbage, cauliflower cheese, carrots and roasted parsnips with a honey glaze.
    What are you cooking or having today?




    Happy new year to you all too😀


    My eldest sons half Italian godmother was over here from Belgium, so the wife took her and the boys over to see The Lion King theatre production in Cardiff.

    I made myself a Thai stir fry. However, I made a school boy error in not frying the ginger, chili and garlic first, but simply added them at the same time as the rest of the veg. In a dish that requires time, it is better to add these particular later. Stir fry's are not one of those times.

    By adding these three items at the same moment as the rest of the veg, the dish had a harsh taste. By the time they had mellow'd in the coconut milk, my vegetable stir fry was a disaster, as the veg was totally overcooked. Fortunately I had the good sense not to chuck it away, and blitzed it into a soup.

    It was accidentally delicious.

    Don't think so. I forgot to say I reduce the cider to make a gravy and depending on the sweetness of the available cider sometimes i add a spoonfull of honey to the mix .Then do quick and dirty roast spuds and parsnips. Quick and dirty means pour about a half inch of oil into a big baking tray. Heat the oil in the oven to the point of stupidity. While its heating take your pre chopped spuds and parsnips blast em for five mins in the microwave. Once they are done carefully add to the oil and bang back in the oven for five to ten, then turn em in the oil.

    To accompany, a nice light bitter Theakstons OP or Spitfire. Or you can just do what I did and drink the rest of the cider and rum and argue with the wife.

    You

    Gammon, soaked for twelve hours in cider and fresh apricots.

    Then simmer in the cider for two hours. Then take it out place it in a roasting tray add a clove of garlic a pinch of salt a handful of mixed herbs and a generous gulpers of rum. Roast in a medium heat for the appropriate time for the weight of the joint uncover for the last third of cooking.
