Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
I remember when about 19/20, trying to grab every overtime hour on offer. I was setting and operating machines making ball pins for track rod ends then. I made a few mistakes including starting a machine up on myself and figured I was becoming a danger to myself and those around me.
More recently, my sleep has been erratic with nights with no sleep for quite a while. It does affect me but I don’t think it’s led to mistakes in cooking recently. That’s mum’s department lately. She stuck a load of sauce to the bottom of my favourite pan the other day. Yesterday’s casualty was MaMade and the big pan. A lot of the marmalade was salvageable but a bit discoloured. I think the remaining stuff should clean out of the pot with another go today. I think we put these down to another enemy, stress…
Onto food. I did try the Sag Aloo last week. A couple of changes: I opted to use a salad (said Jazzy on the packet) potato instead of the Maris Piper and didn’t bother peeling, mild chill powder (fearing the other might be to hot for here) and the whole packet (500 vs 400g) of spinach. The illustration seems to show small chunks of aubergine but mine (not that I mind this) wound up as part of the gravy. It was liked here and is one I’ll do again.
