    I'm with you all the way PAG until the heart burn kicks in and the skin peels off the roof of your mouth because you can't wait for its temperature to drop below 130C before you start eating it.

    A 'make it up as you go along' kind of day. A pasta bake easy enough to make and will do a couple of days worth from the fridge. Looking what to pack it with, opted for green, yellow and red peppers, and onion.



    Along with roasted cauliflower.



    Fried up some chopped garlic and fresh green chilli first of all. Put to one side to mix with the cheese sauce later, along with some fresh tarragon.



    Fried up the peppers and onion mix, again put to one side.



    Started on the cheese sauce, making a roux, while the pasta was cooking.



    Slowly added milk, then the cheese and the fried garlic/chilli mix, the tarragon, and some mustard powder.



    Added the pasta and vegetables to the sauce, mixed together.



    Going to give it a crust of fresh breadcrumbs and parmesan mix.





    Packed the crust on top, and added some sliced fresh tomato.



    About 40 minutes in the oven until the crust started to brown.

    Did it stink like Mbudga? And did you make it to the Paramour?

    Puttanesca sauce originated in Naples. It is made from tomatoes, black olives, capers, anchovies, onions, garlic, and herbs, usually oregano and parsley but sometimes also basil. It is an easy sauce, briefly cooked, and is very fragrant and spicy. Puttanesca translates as “in the style of the whore.” The name derives from the Italian word puttana which means whore. Puttana in turn arises from the Latin word putida which means stinking.

    Now I’ll bet your wondering how this tasty dish became associated with such sordid content. As is often the case when sifting through culinary history, there are multiple explanations. The first interpretation is that the intense aroma, (harking back to the “stinking” Latin definition), would lure men from the street into the local house of ill repute. Thus, the Napolese harlots were characterized as the sirens of the culinary world.

    Three additional accounts all hinge on the fact that Puttanesca sauce is easy and quick to make. The first is that the prostitutes made it for themselves to keep the interruption of their business to a minimum. The second is that they made it for the men awaiting their turn at the brothel. And the final version is that it was a favorite of married women who wished to limit their time in the kitchen so that they may visit their paramour.

    Whatever its origins, Puttanesca is a tasty and vibrant sauce.

    There's no lunch at work on the weekends so today I grabbed what I thought was a baguette from the hotel.

    I discovered it was a 'wrap'... and I just couldn't figure out what kind of meat it was. It looked like lamb but wasn't quite right.



    Turns out it wasn't meat at all and this was a 'Vegan' wrap.

    Amazing really.

    'Vegme'

    Sounds like something a vegan chick screams after 2 glasses of vegan wine and a nibble on the ear.

    BTW, do you know that with Google Translate you only have to point your phone at such text and it immediately translates it into Bristolish.

    ^ Edit: Was it Father's Day today?

    Happy Father's Day, Joe.


    ^^ I'm a busy man... no time for piss-arsing about with my phone in the morning.

    To be honest if you see something 12 inches long, torpedo shaped and wrapped in a brown paper bag in Norway, 99 times out of 100 it'll be a shrimp or smoked salmon baguette. I was just unlucky today.

    It wasn't too bad tbh and I was amazed at how realistic the 'meat' was. I've been half considering going vegetarian for a few years now and this was a useful experience.

    Anyway, to continue the Vegan theme... not strictly lunch but tonight, along with a bottle of wine bought with the last of my hotel vouchers, I had a kebab with Vegan cucumber, lettuce and red onion. I finished work today and have a lunchtime flight out tomorrow... so I thought I'd spoil meself. I can just turn off the alarm and enjoy unlimited episodes of Two and a Half Men with a few glasses of wine... but I know I'll still awake at 4am.

    I'm glad you used up those vouchers!

    Going Vegan for a while might not be a bad idea, as one gets older its healthier to be thinner.


    In fact if we get enough interest we could start a vegan diet and recipe thread, maybe one cheat day a week.

    I'd be up for it for a couple of weeks, anymore than a month though im not so sure.

    Safe travels mate!
    Shalom

    Though I wouldn't have said no.

    Vegan rules state that most of the cheese should flake off when eating....but I would have suffered through it.

    Vegetarian Tuesday. Sweet potato wedges, coated in a mix of olive oil, lemon juice and zest, ground cumin, sumac, chilli flakes, crushed garlic, dried thyme and fresh rosemary then roasted, and a cauliflower cheese.
