    I would like to know why you didn't actually inspect the place before you moved in, though.
    We did inspect the place properly. The problem is its a rented, fully-furnished accomodation but all the furnishings are bottom-of-the-market cheapest stuff available. The washing machine died, I fixed it. The tumble-dryer died - we got a new one for our Christmas Present from her parents. The kitchen stuff we can't replace.

    The house itself was OK for us. Our first home it ticked every box, at an affordable budget. Not a long-term solution of course, but as a short-term accomodation for 2 people who'd always lived with family (exc. my time at uni), had only been going out together 2 months and where she doesn't drive so limited geography close to work, I have no regrets. There were better kitchens available if we'd gone for a nasty apartment on a reallly rought and dangerous council estate nearby (which wouldn't have had a garden or garage or safety). No thanks.

    Looking to buy a house ASAP but more important to get the right one, than the first one.

    Chicken breasts, sauteed in a bit of olive oil, then topped with a couple of spoonfuls of jarred salsa and a sprinkling of cheddar cheese. Served with corn (from a can, even) and broccoli (fresh, microwaved).

    Time from beginning to cook to sitting down with dinner - 8 minutes.

    The key to the whole dish was 375ml of Crown Lager beer poured over the meat and vegies just as it enters the oven/BBQ.

    De-fucking-licious.
    Wow, that does sound tasty! I like men who can cook like that.

    I like cooking, but generally don't have the time to cook the way I like during the week so I get the weekend cooking duties.

    Bitter posted a recipe for green soup months ago and I copied and made it at home several times and it was very nice - I think I'll do that one again this weekend.

    *Oh and as for that BBQ roast fillet in beer, if you're doing pork use Jack Daniels and Coca Cola (has to be coke for the sweetness) instead of beer but cook the vegies separately. The Jack's n coke leaves a sticky sweet glaze on the pork that is indescribable.

    Tonight I'm cooking a honey balsamic chicken. Spicing the chicken with thyme and a bit of salt and pepper with a balsamic vinegar and honey glaze. Served with mash and vegetables.

    Sounds yum Rand.

    Is the glaze just balsamic vinegar and honey and nothing else?

    I've never tried a glaze before.

    Yeah. After cooking the chicken (2 breasts) on the frying pan for about 20 minutes, I put it on a plate and then mixed 2 tablespoons each of balsamic vinegar and honey and put that in the pan. Stirred constantly for a minute and then poured on top of the chicken.

    I'd never tried it before either, but it worked really well.

    Not really, unless you just want to eat veg meals.

    My mother occasionally uses canned chicken (drained and rinsed really well) or tuna, but I don't particularly like either.

    If I use canned vegetables, it tends to be in a southern style casserole - take your canned veg, add a can of condensed cream of chicken or cream of celery soup (or some mayo) - a bit of chopped onion, and sometimes a little cheese.

    Covers up the taste of it being from a can, anyway.

    And I try to buy no salt or reduced salt whenever I buy anything that isn't fresh.

    My black bean soup recipe (that's not exactly what I do, but it is the general idea, I just modified it for me) is mostly not fresh - but it probably makes more than the two of you could eat in a sitting, anyway.

    We're cooking up a storm tonight for a big pseudo-potluck we're hosting over the weekend. To cook tonight? Let us see...

    1. Brisket
    Simple - take a brisket (doesn't have to be a particularly good cut, but the better the cut the better it'll taste), dump it into a crock pot with BBQ sauce, garlic cloves, pearl onions, and chopped up potatoes. Wait ~6 hours.

    2. Garlic Roasted Cauliflower
    Raw cauliflower chopped up into a baking pan with garlic cloves, seasoned salt, a touch of olive oil. Add other vegetables and seasoning as desired. Bake.

    3. Chocolate Pecan Pie
    Eggs, sugar, margarine, light corn syrup, dark chocolate chips, and pecans. Dump into a 9 inch pie pan and bake.

    4. Broccoli pie/casserole/thingy
    Easy way to add a tasty vegetable side: Chopped broccoli, onion seasoning, mayo (ugh, I know, but I swear we only use it for this), eggs, flour, and milk/creamer/whatever. Dump into a pie crust, cover with something crunchy (bread crumbs, cornflake crumbs, whatever). Bake.

    5. Mexican Pasta Salad
    Haven't a clue if it's mexican, but it's got beans and green olives and stuff so it's gotta be something, eh? Cooked pasta, corn, beans, bell peppers, lots of scallions, spanish green olives, optional tomatoes. Dressing: lemon juice, cumin, cilantro, olive oil. Garnish: Grated cheddar and salsa.

    6. Asian-y Cabbage Salad
    Pretty basic: cabbage, scallions, roasted almonds or pecans, uncooked ramen noodles, craisins, sesame seeds, optional mandarin oranges. Dressing: a sweet soy sauce vinaigrette.


    We're also making a pretty basic lasagna (noodles, sauce, cheese, veggies, and crumbled beef stuff) and a couple of other salads, but they're pretty boring and standard. We might throw in a simple fruit soup as well. As you can tell, we go with *really* easy recipes.

    Tacos are fun!

    But messy

    And best with company, but ah well

    Tacos are the Deus Ex of foods

    Mention them, and someone gets a craving

    That's what happened to me!

    Singapore style rice noodles with plenty of spice - from Noodle Box, they cook it up in front of you and it is one of the more edible takeaways I am willing to eat.

    Cold roast beef and salad and Turkish bread tonight, lazy but tasty.

    I love big fat olives stuffed with parmesan cheese.

    Cold beer tonight, Carlton Dry Fusion with Lime.

    Now you're talkin'.

    Love olives, green olives, prepared in just about any way. Stuffed with garlic, or chillies, or peppers, or with fetta, or in various oils and herbs, or various combinations therein.

    Never heard of em stuffed with parmesan, but sounds yum.

    I don't like olives

    Last night I made a dish with spicy sausages, cut in short pieces, fried, with some onion and bell pepper and lentils, then added some stock and tomato paste, and salmon, and let it cook until the salmon was done. Served with couscous, very tasty

    And tonight I'm eating at a friend who promised to make something very tasty

    I baked a strawberry cake.

    It's delicious.

    I don't mean to be evil, but the fact that the strawberry market has collapsed so hard that farmers are saving money by letting the crops rot on the field is making me extremely happy in the grocery store.

    Tonight the entree will be turkey tettrazini, unless I piss-off the cook/wife. I'm supposed to come up with desert. "Nothing from a box" she said
