Re: What are you eating now thread?

Last I night I casseroled some partridges in wine and stock, the served the breasts and legs with mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and other veg. The birds had been in freezer some while and were older birds anyway so not so good for just roasting.
---
The game bird season is here again and talking at the farmer's market looks like it could be a good year, prices same as before (4-5 birds for £10). It's the huge commercial shoots that mostly send to Europe have been curtailed but the company shoots that supply the markets here are looking good. (No-one is going to challenge a group of guys with guns over wearing masks!)

Re: What are you eating now thread?

I shall be making a chicken liver and bacon casserole for the family for the first time ever today. They say they are "bored of food", so I shall try to expand my already wide range of dishes.

Re: What are you eating now thread?

Just been for lunch* with the boss to the Roebuck, just outside Otley.

I had garlic mushrooms on a cheese toastie for starters, followed by Roebuck Pie (venison in a red wine jus) with thick cut chips, broccoli, and baby carrots, washed down by a pint of Black Sheep - yummy.

*thought we should while we still could

Re: What are you eating now thread?

Last night I cooked a Hot Chicken Curry - that's what the book calls it.
Fenugreek and onion seeds into hot all
3 onions chopped and fry to nice and golden adding garlic and ginger pastes at right time
Mix chilli powder, coriander powder, salt, lemon juice and 2 tins chopped tomatoes in bowl and add to onions and cook up for 5 mins
Add chopped chicken (around 700g) - I used thigh - cheaper and tastier and cook for 7 mins
Add 1 red, 1 green peppers cut up, good handful fresh coriander and 6 chopped chillies (finger or thai - ideally green) and cook until chicken is done and peppers are slightly soft.
---
Tonight we are doing a lamb mince curry as bunnie-chow for a family in the church.

Re: What are you eating now thread?

Tother week when we were on our family boating holiday we had hot dogs for tea one night, my son poured half a bottle of ghost pepper sauce on his and didn't even flinch as it went down the hatch.
