|My mum's offering of snert (thick pea soup)|
We take it in turns here to cook. Well, not under normal circumstances, but during Corona we do. At my mum's insistence, as she didn't want to do all the cooking. Mind you, it isn't all bad: the one who makes dinner, doesn't have to help with the dishes. Usually.
My mum is the cook who decides what we eat. Mostly. My dad is the cook who uses my mum as his armchair cook. I am the cook who will try different things. Some with great success, others ... not so great.
|I might have to try and recreate this pizza I had in a Roman restaurant|
Yesterday it was my turn. First I had to make dinner for my dad. He was going back to work in the evening and needed to eat his dinner at lunch time. He got boiled cabbage. Last night I had to make dinner for me and my mum. There was some leftover spaghetti and I had seen a recipe that required spaghetti.
The recipe called for goat's cheese, ricotta and parmezan. I added some bacon, although next time I will keep it original I think. It was done within 15 minutes and it tasted great. Definitely a repeat performance at some point in the future.
However, now my dad has started work again, which means his turn will mostly be taken over by either me or my mum. I am always on the lookout for other dishes. Not necessarily vegetarian, but low in carbs (ie no or very few potatoes or pasta).
|This is so yummy!|
I try to swap mashed potatoes for mashed turnip and carrot (on the Hairy Bikers fish pie, mmmmmm). I try to find other types of rice (cauliflower or broccoli) to cook with, although so far haven't tried it.
Basically: if anybody has a recipe for a lovely meal (low carb/vegetarian/regular): yes please! Oh, and don't worry: Yam's mock oxtail and Yam's pumpkin soup are already in my new cookbook!
