Tony Macaroni

Dinner with the usual gang. Aa had Crab meat linguini. Aa felt the meat wasn't fresh. Can or live seafood? hmm.. I wonder .

Prawn Rissotto. Rice was well cooked and infused with stock but the prawns were springy and plain.

Check out some of the other food that I took during the pre-white balance days lol

PeriPeri Spice Chicken with Cous Cous

Studying can be boring.. which is why i am here blogging. Dinner from sometime ago. Aa marinated some chicken in a green jalapeno sauce which gave it a very nice peri peri taste. Cooked up some Cous cous. Never thought I'll like cous cous but its quite nice when simmered in a vegetable stock. Boil up some courgettes and carrots and we are off to go.

Gu Desserts (Highly Recommended)

J recommended this dessert to me quite sometime ago and I found it on offer the other day at Tesco for 2 pounds. I assumed its quite an Atas brand since Waitrose sells it as well.

Yup. It was good quality cheesecake in a glass NOT PLASTIC ramekin. Its pretty much like a goldmine cheesecake. I'll definately be making this sometime after my exams. .

Oh and I kept the ramekins.

Happy 2010 !!!!

Happy new year! So fast so fast 2010 has arrived. I am sure everyone has lots of memories to reflect on from the past ten years. 10 years since the the turn of the millenium, when I first started JC and finally... finally!! I am going to graduate well .. again LOL!... Anyway, we can leave that all to one side and focus on the food.

So K decided he wanted Turkey because he had to slog on Christmas day and miss the dinner. Since Aa and C did most of the cooking this time, I guess it was my turn to volunteer and help as well.. Didnt do much, K, XL and WY did most of the stuff.

As you can see above is the giant 5.65kg turkey bought from Sainsbury. We decided to get it before Christmas and freeze it in case we couldn't get one for the new year dinner. Guess what!!! the price of turkey fell by half after Christmas. Stuffings fell by 50% on Boxing day Morning and fell by another 80% that very same afternoon..... -_-"

OK anyway... The turkey was deliciously moist and well seasoned. I am not a big fan of the big bird because they tend to be dry in texture but this bird was fine and the stuff in it was great too. The use of orange blossom honey perfused the bird extremely well added a nice char to it.. Well done K..

I did a tomato pesto baked ORGANIC !!! salmon... I've never bought organic stuff but since it was on sales.. why not. It tasted great hahaaha guess it was due to the freshness more than anything else.

Broccoli, aubergine and cauliflower? gratin. Nice and not over cheesy. Made by K.

WY's potato dish inspired by Jamie Oliver and salvaged by XL. I commented that it tasted like chicken rice and WY pointed out that he added chicken stock to it. Taste great and provided some balance to the turkey.

And there goes the turkey!


As usual.. more desserts and here's a christmas log to finish off with some B and J's!

P.s: Congrats K and XL.
