Soooo I’m back.. well my kitchen is back to being a regular mess (though that’s mainly due to me not being able to wash dishes yet).
I had 2 days off this week due to working this weekend and made the most of them for once. Tuesday I managed to make crepes with strawberries.
This is what they usually look like (when I’m trying to make them pretty, I usually eat them too fast to care)
I had a bit of a snafu in this plan however as I could not find my Nutella… which is a rather large problem when that was to be the filling for the crepes. I tried to “whip up” a chocolate sauce instead and while it tasted fine the texture was WAY too thin for my liking/plans. I will have to make sure Nutella is on my list.
Next on my list of things to make were Falafels
This is a picture from last year after my first attempt at them, as well as home made Pita. I did not take any picks this time as I was too concerned about eating them. This time i broke the rules and ground the chickpeas, tahini, lemon etc up more than I had the first time, as well as adding 6 cloves of garlic rather than the 2 called for. I ended up eating 5 which should say a bit. I could have still added more garlic (I love garlic, a lot) and will also continue to play around with spices. I also need to come up with some sort of sauce, problem is I don’t like sour cream or cucumbers. Ideas?
I also made Beef Stroganoff for my honey last night which turned out well. Sorry no pictures of that, I took several as I was making it but no final product picture. I also thought the browning meat shots may not go over so well. And to top off last night’s dinner I made these…
I was trying to find a way to use up the darn chocolate sauce.. but despite my efforts (corn starch, powdered sugar, granulated sugar, butter) I could not get it to thicken up (help!). So I just ended up dipping the tops in, and yet I still have a whole bowl of useless chocolate sauce left.
And that’s my week in food, tonight I just had cereal but some nights it just hits the spot. Now off to rest my feet for a long day of work tomorrow.
Have a great weekend
