    Miso soup with gyoza and pak choi again to use up the other half of the pak choi. Experimental pudding I threw together this afternoon which was just gingernuts sandwiched together with plain yoghurt (nothing else) and bunged in the fridge. This actually worked and was really very good.

    Had the pudding first because I couldn't wait to see what it had come out like. Next time I would add lemon zest. Everything is better with lemon zest.

    My mum used to make a wonderful thing in the 70s - ginger nuts dipped rapidly into whiskey, sandwiched together into a long sausage shape with whipped cream and lemon zest. Wrapped into foil and left in the fridge for a few hours. It was AMAZING - squidgy biscuity alcoholic gorgeousness.

    OK. This was fucking good :)

    I have managed to avoid pork and potatoes for Two nights running. This was Patanisca de bacalhau com arroz feijao.

    Battered cod with salad and a rice side dish with beans, onion, red and green pepper in a light tomato salsa. A meal in itself.

    With bread, and a beer, less than €10 all in. Fabulous.

    Yeah, I had heard rumours of such puddings. I have now proved that you can do it with just yoghurt. It's nearly healthy :hmm:

    Rollo de carne summat, or other...

    dinner.jpg
    Some sort of rolled joint of beef (loads of it) in a salty, smokey, BBQ type salsa. The chips and salad are good. I'm still working my way, little by little through the rest. Paid for - gotta fucking well eat it.

    Stuffed. It was a roll of beef filled with something. Rolo de carne rechalado - I think. Six thick slices of roast beef. Think I can give food a miss for a day, or Two :)

    That was €7 plus €1 for the bread, and €1.30 for a very nice beer. I'm eating in this place everyday presently. Excellent value, fresh, home cooked stuff. The sauce was a little too salty for me this time. Usually, it is spot on.

    I'm at work and someone requested my cottage pie. Remember why I don't cook like that at home much. I'm a total gluten and ate way more then I needed. It was a proper childhood comfort food mind and takes me right back. :cool:

  24. Last night it was steak and bratkartoffel, raspberry crumble with cream and ice cream and loads of wine. We went to a really fancy place in town. Definitely the fanciest place I've ever been. The steak had incredibly thin slices of pig cheek on top of it that had almost melted into it.

    Tonight we've had hummus and bread and having a diavolo pizza next. Yum.

    Still can't figure out how to control focus on my budget smartphone. Got 'professional mode' now, but...

    carne.jpg

    Done this before. Carne de Porco Alentejana.

    Pan fried pork covered with diced, 'chipped' potatoes. Heavy garnish of coriander and pickled cauliflower and carrots. It is pretty good when you are in the right mood for pork and potatoes.

    --// it has a token sprinkle of shellfish also.


    I'm getting locals prices here now. For that I have to put up with them ripping the piss out of my Portuguese... "You speaking Catalan, or Gallego, or what?".

    I am speaking Castellano with a Scottish accent ;)
