    What are those green leafy bits with the long thin stalks? Look interesting to me, seem them in a few of your dinners.

    Well, if there hadn't been sins against our fleecy wee friends in this very page it was going in the breakfast thread.

    Depends, what are the rules?

    I'm right handed, I just grabbed a fork to give the meat a wee press to show the quality of the cook.

    Fork only - right hand

    Spoon only - right hand

    Fork and knife - fork left hand

    Fork and spoon - fork right hand
    Lang may yer lum reek...

    ^^ Are you talking to me?

    If so, AO, it's kanaa (sp?) or kale I think? We usually have a crop on the go in the veggie garden, in amongst the weeds. I've read that leafy veg is very good for you so try and sneak in a bit now and again.

    It's very easy to grow, even the gardener can do it!

    Fair enough, but you have to admit that in a court of law the pic you posted would be good evidence against that?

    It doesn't bother me, btw. I have several good mates who are gammy-handed.

    Okay I see it now Pak Kanna, which I know and really like, but yours seems to just look good with gravy and mash or spuds. I think when fried over high heat it changes. I like the simple Pak Kanna with crispy pork as a vegetable here. Thanks.

    ^ I pick it, boil it for just 30 seconds or so and add a blob of butter. It goes well with Western meals as well.

    There is a perfectly good explanation:

    I had my diggers in my left hand as I was handed my plate to my right. I placed both to the left originally while I went in search of apple juice. That's the first of my 5 a day, btw.

    Then I thought, the great cremators of TD lamb need to see how this should be, so I grabbed my fork and teased the meat out a bit for closer inspection. Please note, at this point I only used a fork. then I put the fork down to take a picture.

    I will add that this is the first time I have taken a photograph of my food on an offshore installation, but there was nobody looking.

    Your accusations will not hold worth in a court of law, as I shall whole-heartedly exercise my right to plead the 5th Amendment of the Constitution.

    Call me gammy-handed again and you may very well hold me in court for other atrocities!

    I don't really feel the need to be honest, all I eat out here is meat and vegetables. Twice a day. 5pm and 11pm. Soup too if there's no tatties, pasta or beans etc.

    Zero carbs. Keto if you like, but I don't get into the technicalities of it.

    ^ Wouldn't want your electric bill this winter


    I don't normally appease members when it comes to Chitty's Culinary Concoctions in Hells kitchen but I'll make an exception for Mendy..

    With British Reds roasted , accompanied with thick gravy and PEAS!

    The peas were a tad to sweet for me so a controversial point deduction.

    9/10


    Not one to shy away from a challenge and diversify, I produced a damn fine Pad Krapow for the daughter totally off the cuff with no research.

    She was suitably impressed and gave it a resounding

    11/10

    Looks like a bit of a challenge, that verb 'to be'.

    Wilted yellow broccoli is usually a sign of age. He probably just bought the red sticker 1 special before they threw it in the bin as unfit for human consumption.

    A penny saved and all that…

    Got home and couldn't be bothered to do anything fancy. Had 5 eggs to use up and some new boiled new potatoes so add some fried onions and a splash of hot pepper sauce on the middle and it was a Pomme-de-terre-elette. It was so big i had to push its bottom in to get it on the plate as TC would say

    Thank you Joe. That made me happea!


    But of course cooking ain't all about peas. There are plenty of other veg but peas just happen to be top of my list.

    My favourite way to eat a steak is with chips, tomatoes... and peas. We had this the other night, and I know it's a risky business posting a steak on this thread, but...



    The steaks were Imported all the way from Australia and were so juicy that no ketchup was required.



    Occasionally I step outside of my comfort zone in the kitchen and leave the peas in the freezer. Last weekend was just such an event when I cobbled together some coleslaw. Just a note here... that Heinz mayonnaise was certainly not 'Seriously Good' and nowhere near as good as Helmann's or even Kraft, but it was all that Makro had. The Heinz is way too salad creamy for my liking and dominated the taste of the coleslaw, but what can you do?



    First, chop the apple and squeeze some lemon juice on to stop it going brown.



    Grate in some onion and carrot.



    Add chopped white cabbage and salt and pepper.



    And then add mayonnaise to taste. I don't like a sloppy coleslaw so add just enough to bind it all together. Meanwhile I'd also par-boiled a potato for some potato salad.



    Add some corn and pork ribs and voila!



    The perfect Saturday night meal and not a pea in sight. And a bone each for the dogs to boot!

    Fine looking food. Make your own mayo, easy and better than any store bought. Easy Mayonnaise
