Lockdown Food

We generally cook from scratch anyway so nothing too different. More time for optional extras like nibbles/starters/desserts though so we've out own hummus, made scones a few days ago and today made an absolutely delicious carrot cake (hummingbird bakery book is a winner). Having not thought it through,we now have an entire cake to get through between two of us. There are worse fates...

Stir fry tonight to get through some odds and ends of veg.

Not wanting to make light of the situation as it really is a terrible thing that’s led to this, but the way pollution has cleared up and how so many people are spending more time than ever with families is a lovely side effect.

Realise there are many people out there who are going through very difficult periods supporting those in need, but I do hope big companies take a look at productivity, commitment and employee happiness and realise there may well be some long term learnings to take from this spell.

Good stuff!

My top tip ingredient for beef chilli in a slow cooker is a can of beer!

Wife put together onion soup with cheesed croutons. Looked awful. But the best dish I’ve had in awhile

just eating too much in general - I may not get out of the door post lockdown
fried eggs and fried bread simply today - but a more ambitious prawn curry yesterday - plenty of seafood in fridge and cold box still

Do you cook with it over fire / coals?

That's hardly going to help the former comment! Wink
