I'm baking that half pumpkin I saved from the other day and I'm about to make a pumpkin pie. It seems like an easy recipe but I am kind of nervous, I hope it comes out good. I'm thinking about adding some cardamom and nutmeg to the pumpkin filling to spice it up a bit. I will upload a pic if it doesn't totally suck.

Me, me, me against them, me against enemies, me against friends, somehow they all seem to become one, a sea full of sharks and they all smell blood.

I made some Milo Cookies, but instead of Milo, I used coconut

Mum gave me 20 (from my birthday in July ) so when my other-half gets home, I'm going to try and convince him to have pizza with me from this awesome place called Pizza GoGo (like the best pizza ever, and I have SED! :p).

If he feels too sicky from the hot weather though, I'll still be having pizza, but just from the freezer instead - classic cheese & tomato but with hotdogs in the crust! My latest favourite. Times like these, I'm glad I didn't go veggie with my other-half!

Lots of nutmeg I love nutmeg! How did it turn out? It sounds super yummy.

Opinions about spices vary. They're all in the allspice-nutmeg-cinnamon-molasses branch of the family, so I guess cardamom should work, but cinnamon especially. Some people like so much spice that the pumpkin becomes essentially just a medium for delivering spices, but I like less than that. A store-bought pie will usually be toward the spicy end of the spectrum and might even have ginger (which I love in other situations, but not in a pumpkin pie.)

Good luck! Story time: The main thing I got wrong on my first several pumpkin pies was the texture, since it's basically a custard pie and I needed some practice to get it smooth. If I overcooked the pumpkin, too much water would separate, so I could bake the pie until the eggs curdled and it still wouldn't be right. But! canned pumpkin puree is available where I live, so I no longer have to demolish entire pumpkins. On the other hand, there are other winter squashes that don't get pureed and canned, like turban squash, that also make very good pies and can be worth the considerable torque that you need to put on a very strong knife blade to force them to yield. YMMV a lot of sources say turban squash is weak in flavor and you ought to try something else. I suspect they may be overcooking it -- my experience is that it makes at least as good a pumpkin pie as pumpkins do.

@Bellasaurus & @r-deNoube it turned out ok. The crust was somewhat soggy (even though the regular flour-water-fat crust is something I NEVER get right) and the filling was too spicy :/ Basically it was just nutmeg. It tasted like bechamel rather than pumpkin, but even though it was eatable, I know next time I will do better.

/me moves in with Zarathustra... and gains a.lot of weight

I did get to make the lasagna I'd been wanting. And it was good. BUT- I made vegetable beef soup for tonight. And damn, it.was.mmmmm.mmmm.GOOD! Well worth the (almost) 8 hours it took to make. I think I've outdone myself for the week and should make nothing but store bought frozen stuff for the rest of the week!

You may want to reconsider that, in light of the fact that dinner tonight was a frozen pizza!

Still, frozen pizza makes me happy- my family would always do pizza-and-a-movie nights on Fridays as I was growing up, and since Grand Canyon was a million miles from everywhere (it's closer than that now) that meant frozen pizza and Netflix. Well, this season, Wednesdays are my Friday- and I still have Netflix... Tradition can make even cheap premade food taste good!

Today I will be slow cooking lamb shanks in another of my wedding presents - you guessed it - a slow cooker :P

I do them in lamb stock with lots of garlic and oregano and a squeeze of lemon. Kind of like kleftico only without the potatoes because stupidly I forgot to buy any. We'll have them with rice instead which actually works quite well as the yummy stock gets soaked in to the rice when it's all on the dish.

Opah tonight. It is a pretty fish inside & out, and the meat is something like tuna but milder. They don't swim in schools so there's no good way to catch them on purpose, but they sometimes travel with tuna and get caught along with them, so they show up in stores once in a great while.

(l. to r.: Opah, fisherman.)

I'd eat it. Looks tasty!
Made sausage and lentil soup for supper tonight. Eve actually loved it, probably because it tasted like sausage haha. But it was really tasty. Next time I really need to measure the lentils though. Sucked up all my broth.

Soft tacos. First time I've had soft tacos, I usually make the crunchy shell ones.
It was okay, I kinda missed the crunchy shell.

Thick, center-cut steak, marinated in a honey-mustard and garlic blend for the last 24 hours, pan-seared, then topped with some thin slices of red onion and stir-fried garlic cloves. Green beans almondine for a side, a salad of the veggies that are ready to harvest from my garden (lots of that over the last few days ), fresh-baked sourdough bread. Looking forward to a glass of Jameson and a slice of German-Chocolate Cake for dessert in another few minutes...

That's it. *packs bags and moves in with Zarathustra* :D

So far I've stuck to the frozen foods- although it was just 1 night really: frozen enchilladas. I couldn't make up my mind which to get, so I got steak and chicken. Meh. I'll stick to making my own from now on.. which is another all day thing. But mine are so much better. Tonight was left overs, nothing particularly interesting. (Left over soup and I ate the last 2 enchilladas.)

Lazy food tonight for my hubby and me - Sausage, egg and chips

Today is our Monday (we both work Sat - Wed with Thu/Fri as the weekend) so we never feel like cooking properly!

Sausage egg and chips is a lovely dinner! I'm probably going to be eating a lot of that when I move to uni next week
