At the weekend I made leek and taleggio pie - talking of pie crusts. 'Twas v. nice. V. nice indeed.

Breakfast: banana and oat pancakes, with eggs, heavy cream, almond flour, cinnamon, cardamom, lemon, and probably some other ingredients I can't remember. YUMMY! They were a bit difficult to turn, but once I got the hang of it (after 3-4 ruined pancakes), they turned out good.

Dinner: Had half a pack of tomato soup base (the dried kind with macaroni), added some heavy cream, 3/4 box of chopped tomatoes, some extra spaghetti (didn't have macaroni) and some spices. Yummy! Would probably have worked even better with some meat.

and dessert: Strawberry ice cream with strawberries, and strawberry sauce (and a little bit of chocolate sauce), just because I can!

I'm in the process of making yaksik. Hope it turns out good.
Edit: It was pretty good

Earlier today I made ANZAC biscuits. They are so easy to make and should be foolproof but this time they didn't work... just a big fat floury fail.

And last night I made a chicken, cabbage and speck thing that also turned out to be unsatisfying. I seem to have lost my cooking mojo.

I wouldn't put a lot of effort into getting it transported.

I'd kill to be cooking something right now. All my time is spent either revising at home or being in the library typing up my notes to revise from (my laptop broke and J can't really type notes on my phone/tablet) so I've been living off ready-made food and sandwiches. I have to admit though, Tesco's meal for 2 with 2 different types of curry is pretty decent for £5. The 2 curries have different levels of spice so it's spicy curry for me, and not really spicy curry (Korma I think?) for the Fiancé who sets on fire at the thought of spice.

After my exam I'm going to cook myself a lovely roast dinner with asparagus and mash and a big ham joint and some kind of cheesecake desert.

Similar to my plans.

S'mores with Snickers in place of the traditional Hershey bar. Awesome!

Home-made vanilla fudge - soft caramel, hopefully. It's the second time I've tried, and the first time it didn't taste that good, probably because there was sugar crunch throughout it. I think I got all the sugar out this time, though. Had a taste test, and it's quite smooth.

For dessert (and as a freezer treat) there's vanilla ice cream with a little bit of chocolate and caramel, currently in the freezer (I had a little taste, and it's SO yummy! I hope it turns out good - it's the first time I try making ice cream, but it was surprisingly easy. Probably because my hand mixer did 90% of the job in much less time than I thought it would take.

And chicken for dinner.

Edit: The toffee turned out fine, though a bit cracked (maybe because it had started to set when I had to switch containers). But the taste is good. I cut them to squares, and dumped the shavings and crumbs into the ice cream, which has turned into a calorie bomb.

I ran across a recipe for slow-cooker Mongolian Beef and planned to make that yesterday. Then I took an unscheduled nap (lol @myself, none of my naps are scheduled, I just randomly lay down and fall asleep) and didn't wake up until 3 PM. So instead of putting it in the crock pot, I just simmered the meat in the liquid ingredients for a couple of hours. SO DAMNED GOOD and so easy to make - both of which mean that I'll be making it again someday. Just have to keep an eye out for steak on sale.

Burnt fried eggs.

Seriously, what gives? I could fry eggs perfectly every time when I was in middle school! What the hell happened since then?

Breakfast of half a Grapefruit and a cup of blueberries, Turkey sandwich for lunch, Salmon fillet and wedges for dinner, and then for supper I've prepared dark chocolate coated bananas.

I'm trying to do this "healthy" thing...

French onion soup. I found a recipe for the crock pot version, and I wanted to try it out. It won't be ready until later tomorrow, I think, but I have other things to cook tonight. Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, maybe some chicken/chicken enchilada for one.
