I’ve started watching 10000BC on Channel 5.
Always intrigued by these type of social experiments (I was gripped by Living In The Past in the 70’s) it’s fascinating to see specifically what a decent meal means to us humans.
Until something is taken away, it’s sometimes hard to fully appreciate how much we truly would miss something were it not available.
It’s good to go without sometimes. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
I’m missing cooking. In particular, I’m missing cooking my favourite recipes.
If absolutely desperate to do so I could probably rustle them up. It’d take longer, and it would be difficult but I probably could. Or I could just wait another 8 days, and then I will have 2 hands to do the job.
As a compromise, and because some of you may not have seen some of my recipes I decided to share my top 3 today.
Probably my favourite slow cooked recipe is lasagne.
Most people I mention slow cooked lasagne to are surprised it can be cooked in a crockpot. But not only can it be cooked this way, it’s also my favourite way of cooking it. It really is good.
Another recipe I’m missing is this A-Mazing spicy soup.
A firm favourite here, and such a winter warmer. Perfect for a February evening.
Moving onto a sweet treat, this cupcake I discovered by accident.
My jam sunk in the recipe and voila Sticky Bottom Raspberry Cupcakes. A great finale!
