Saw some Angus TBone steaks at the market. Snagged one! Big steak, nice and thick. Haven’t eaten steak for awhile so bought a couple Dutch creme potatoes (boil, slice & shallow fry) and a nice big mushroom to have with it. Cheaper cuts that require long cooking have much more flavor but steak is nice once in a while.

Smart thinking—some baking paper first would have made it easier, probably. (Pastry is kind of a closed book to me ATM.)

Guy I employed at the brewshop used to work at a pizza place: started off every day kneading 20Kg of pizza dough!

He also worked at a landscaping place. Boss told him they were going to a slow payer’s place and thoughtfully selected a pick and a crowbar and loaded them in the ute. Guy didn’t know what to think, looked like intimidation or murder was on the agenda! Nah, they just did some work there. He left not long after that—didn’t like the boss’ sense of humor!

apparently putting toothpaste on a burn as soon as it happens prevents blisters .... used to work at a pizza restaurant and the cooks in the kitchen always had a tube of toothpaste in their for just such an occassion (by toothpaste, I'm talking about the traditional stuff, I'm not sure if the mint, gel or whitening stuff works)

Yeah you're right.

Don't they say most accidents happen in the home.?


So.. a bit blistered today.... not too bad. :roll

Sometimes I really annoy myself. :mad

Jesus, Pinky, be careful!

A woman I knew one time, chip pan caught on fire, she grabbed it and put it in the sink. When she let go—her fingers remained stuck to the handle!

So I was good, right up until about hr 2.
Nearly done, I pulled it out and checked the tenderness. all with a good cloth barrier. But then..? :roll with a knife in my right hand, genty prodding the meat, I grabbed the handle of the saucepan to rotate it...………….. :jump :purple I dropped it , and started running my hand under the cold tap, and have been actively watering and icing it.. swishing around in iced water .. since about 6.00 pm aest.

I managed to eat some of the Osso Bucco in the meantime... :) but.. I must continue to cool this burn down. Cheers. :thumb

I made Osso Bucco today.

Actually used a recipe in a book... but had to substitute some ingredients.

YUM.

BUT sadly I have burned my left hand. IT really shits me off because I had multiple notes to self, NOT to handle the cookware without proper insulation. I used steel cookware, and transferred the pot to the oven, REMINDING MYSELF, not to use the handle.!! Its a nice picee, and perfect , but usually use it as a saucepan, on TOP of the stove. This time I used it to cook the Osso Bucco in the oven.

Reckon I will make a batch of bara brith today.

This sounds like a nice recipe: https://www.bbc.com/food/recipes/bara_brith_24607

Uses yeast instead of baking soda.

Going to make a batch of corn bread too, pan fried.

Food looks great. I am the cook of the family and having trouble with my two boys aged 5 and 3.

If anyone has any good ideas for food that toddlers wont turn their noses up at then i would be most appreciative!


No child has ever starved if food is available.

Try ravioli. With a garlicky pesto.

Stuffed mushrooms.

Make a nice desert—use it as blackmail: eat the creamed {shudder} broccoli and you can have desert!

These are all brilliant suggestions!

I do my own sausage rolls but find it quite labour intensive with me and the missus full time work and a masters degree on the go.

The pie idea sounds great as i can sneak all the veggies in! Its only my crumbed chicken, spaghetti (hi bongalong) bol, and bangers and mash that i know will be a winner. They even went off my home cooked lasagne....... it's not like i'm giving them steamed broccoli

haha i'm at my wits end but wouldn't take it back for anything.

Thanks for all the help.

I wouldn't use sausage. Just some mince, I prefer pork but we also do chicken, mixed with finely diced vege's ..... kids can't get enough

home made sausage rolls are good for that to ... if you use frozen pastry sheets they're very easy to make.

Green veges? :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike

Really young ones like strong tasting food like olives after that it is a battle. Meat and chicken usually not a problem. Fish a bit more problematic except as fish & chips but can’t eat fried food all the time.
