    Slow cooker rump roast

    Dear Reader, It’s a cold, cloudy day in Canberra, with a maximum forecast temperature of eight degrees Celsius today. That’s 46 °F for any reader in the USA, Liberia, and Burma. It felt like a good day to have the slow cooker on as well as the heating. While grocery shopping this morning, I saw a nice […]

  • Pork knuckle and vegetables

    Pork knuckle and vegetables

    I’m using a pre-cooked pork knuckle from Coles. While the Coles product is pre-cooked, to get the crackling crispy and crunchy it needs some more cooking. I went with this because during the week I had a lovely pork belly dinner but the crackling was disappointing. It was soft and limp. I needed some crispy […]

  • Reverse seared scotch rib fillet steak

    Reverse seared scotch rib fillet steak

    The last few weeks I’ve cooked salmon under vacuum (sous vide) on a Sunday night. Yesterday, while grocery shopping I saw a nice thick piece of scotch rib fillet steak and thought it looked too good to go past. Tonight I cooked the steak by the reverse sear method. That is, I start cooking the […]

    While cooking salmon sous vide isn’t necessarily quick and easy, tonight I didn’t want to fuss too much about the vegetables so I used some frozen peas.

  • Slow cooker pea and ham soup

    Slow cooker pea and ham soup

    Today was a pea and ham soup sort of day. I’ll have enough of this for lunches this week. I won’t be lighting any matches tonight that’s for sure.

  • Chicken and vegetables

    Chicken and vegetables

    I came home early today. I’ve got ManFlu. I went to bed last night feeling a little under the weather. I’d had a poor sleep the night before and I wasn’t sure if I had an infection or if I was just over tired. I woke up this morning with a headache and while at […]

  • Oven baked deboned chicken thigh and crispy peas

    Oven baked deboned chicken thigh and crispy peas

    Hmmm…I really lacked imagination and motivation tonight. I’d left a chicken thigh dry brining in the refrigerator overnight so knew I had that. I just couldn’t be bothered making a salad and I had some baby peas in the freezer. I’ve enjoyed using a mortar and pestle lately for grinding whole peppercorns and iodised sea […]
