Beef bones simmering slowly on the stove, smells delish.

Get to find the Kenwood Chef cookbook, has an excellent stollen recipe. Will make two, leave one here, take one to Tassie. Will make some ginger cake too for the trip.

Going to make Mango Butter with cardamom seeds. Utterly deelish! The mangoes I bought are a trifle overripe so will cut down the sugar and add some lime zest and juice for some tartness. Recipe is from an English book, “Sensational Preserves” by Hilaire Walden, my fave preserves book by far. It was a library book, last borrowed 20 Oct 2010 :) Slice of bread, slather with the butter, yummy lunch!

well .. I've added chopped fresh mango to arrabiata pasta sauce ( Barilla) from the supermarket..
some additional hot chillies (from the garden) and freshly cracked black pepper, on the pasta of choice.. it is yum, and a chance discovery.
I had a ripe mango, and ate some, but never usually do so,, so had left over mango.

Worked really well.

A great spread which is what I want it for, quick lunch on my block. Can make it a layer in a layer cake, add to ice cream or fruit salad etc. A fruit butter is just the fruit boiled down until it is the consistency of soft butter. Use it in mango chicken, etc.

there's my problem ... I don't do mango chicken (sounds terrible), prefer my icecream in a cone, like my fruit out of a salad and i try not to use spreads in my sandwiches (i'll make an exception for nutella) .

Your loss. Also nice in porridge.

Currently have a nice piece of pork belly in the slowcooker. Bit of oil, layer of onion then the pork belly rubbed with a mix of fresh ginger, garlic, soy sauce and bit of smoked paprika. Will cook broadbeans and make some coleslaw to go with the pork.

ohh my god ... tried that once years ago ... I swore then that'd I'd never again order porridge.

Cause I'm a sucker for punishment I did order again about ten years later t see if it had improved ... it was even worse than I remembered.

HAHAHAHA! Mum sort of force fed me porridge back in Holland, I returned to it not that many years ago. Nice with a handfull of sultanas and a spoon of jam or honey. Very stick to the ribs stuff, excellent winter breakfast.

Will make a batch of Anzac biscuits to take with me to Tassie, another great use of oats.

After we arrived here Mum forcefed us trombone—cheap and filling I suppose. Now I cannot stand anything in the pumpkin family. Is a problem—soup du jour is pumpkin soup 90% of the time.

We do not tend to make mashed potatoes. My younger sister married a pommy and he likes mash potatoes—nursery food IMHO. So Mum made some. I wasn’t there, much the pity. B-i-l stuck his fork in the mash potato on his plate. When he lifted his fork—the WHOLE pile of mash came up with it. In hysterics Mum told me “The look on his face!” :ROFL1:ROFL1:ROFL1:ROFL1:ROFL1:ROFL1:ROFL1

I have actually tried to make decent mash spuds, even adding cream, fresh cracked black pepper yadda yadda. Ultimately—not worth the bother. Roasted spuds OTOH!
