Chicken and sweetcorn pizza dipped in BBQ sauce is quite simply the best thing in the universe. 

Sheiiit. Barbecue sauce is my lifeblood and chicken pizza is my kryptonite. If you were looking for the number one cause of deforestation, you found it right there.

It's Autumn, so time for my favourite seasonal snack dessert: Warm apple :happy: You just boil/sautee/dunno the apple (put it in a pan with a small splash of water, not even covering the bottom) with some cinnamon and a bit of lemon juice and you end up with something that basically tastes like apple pie except it's healthier because it's just apple and cinnamon and it's done in five minutes. And if you cut the pieces not all exactly the same size you get different textures as well, with the bigger pieces still being firm and having some bite and the smallest pieces nice and mushy like a warm compote.

Dipped pizza of course doesn't exist here! :P

On a related note, Italians don't know what your "meatball spaghetti" or "fettuccine alfredo" are!

*bows to the deity*

 

This said, I screwed up my gorgonzola sauce yesterday...and I screwed it up badly. I'm, like, the worst italophile in the world sometimes. :(


 

I'm tempted to try this, thanks. :)

 

Then again, not sure what you're talking about, as we have fresh apples all year long and they're dirt-cheap, too.

Well, apples are traditionally in the season in autumn even though in this time and age they're available year-round, and the warmness of it and the spices (well, just cinnamon in this case but there's other spices that work beautifully too) make it really autumn-y for me. It's just an association I make :)

Dad wanted take-away last night so we drove around a bit and found a new Mediterranean place! No one really knows they're there so it was really quiet. But it was so good, omg. Dad's a big eater so he just got a bunch of shit to try. Kibbeh, both cheese and meat sambousek, haloumi with pomegranate sauce (dad asked the woman what the sauce was 'cause he liked it so much). Then I had a falafel roll which was amazing. And dad and Jake both had chicken skewers with hummus, salad, and pickled chillies. Dad hated those but I thought they were great, so I had his

 

anyway I'm just in love with the whole place so I can't wait to go back

Mum bought some black pasta last night, and introduced it to me as: "lobster ink pasta". :lol:

 

It's the squid ink one. Has anybody used it before? What does it taste like? Our packet is about 2ft long and looks like tagliatelle.

I saw that in a large supermarket and I googled it immediately...to learn that the squids literally eject ink from their behinds. Still wondering if it's worth being given a go, so...you go first and tell us how it was? O_o

 

Emilie, that sounds like what we'd call middle eastern food. It's funny from a certain perspective...when we say Mediterranean here, we think of a fraction of our own, Greek, Spanish, Italian. But either way, Mediterranean diet is high on protein and fibre, which could be beneficial for your health issues on a longer run, so go for it if both of you like it. :)

I've had that before in a restaurant and don't remember it tasting any different than regular pasta. Nice looking in the bowl though!

Yeah from what I remember it doesn't taste any different. Maybe there's a very subtle flavour difference some foodie would notice or something, but as far as I'm concerned it tastes the same. Its added value is in presentation, making it look good.

Mm, I would've called it middle eastern too. But they called themselves Marjana Mediterranean. Maybe they had other foods I just didn't see?

I don't know but I'm definitely going back soon so i'll have a look.

spending time at Josh's house never ends well. so far this past 3 days I've gotten through 3x2L bottles of Tango, a share size bar of chocolate, a share size bag of crisps, a KFC bucket, multipack of donuts, pot noodle, many normal size packets of crisps, roast dinner, sausage & bacon sandwiches, chips... :lol: how am I not a fat cunt?
I'm just about to put on some spaghetti bolognese (at 11:30am). it's hilarious because both Josh & my mum always say 'you never fucking eat'. WATCH ME.

depends what the food is. Sometimes cheese, sometimes just different spices, or barbecue sauce maybe.

A potato stuck in the soup will have some of the salt sink in.

 

To make food nicer?

 

- ground nuts (mostly hazelnuts and almonds) instead of any sort of a roux

- butter on pastas before they're served,

- olive oil on vegetables, basil, sage or parsley wherever applicable, depending on what goes with what

- wholemeal, brown or rye pasta and pastry

- honey wherever possible

 

Do you have an allergy that impacts your senses of taste and smell? I do, and the above almost always work for me.

CHICKEN WITH SAUTED VEGETABLES AND GORGONZOLA SAUCE

 

(serves two)

 

Ingredients:

- two nice lean chicken breasts

- 1 medium-sized eggplant

- 2 medium-sized squashes (zucchinis? Whichever is green and cucumber-like, regardless of the shade of green)

- 1-2 cups of white mushrooms

- 1 large red bell pepper

- 1/2 cup of gorgonzola - the hard variant

- about 1/6 stick or 20 grams of butter

- olive oil as much as needed

- cooking oil or whatever other minimal amount of fat fat you grill meat on, unless you use a real grill

- basil to taste

- 1/3 cup or 80 grams of cooking cream

- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

- a pinch of dried or fresh chives

 

Cut all the vegetables as you see fit, I usually cut paprika, squash and eggplant in thick stripes. Saute it for as long as necessary in a deeper pan on some olive oil. 

 

Bat your chicken breast if you like it thinner, I usually do. Set aside.

 

Melt the butter in a saucepan and do not allow it to boil and go brown. Add cream and crumbled gorgonzola, cook on medium to low heat until the sauce starts thickening, constantly mixing it. Add ground nutmeg and chives. Make sure it doesn't thicken too much, but don't let it go all runny either, keep it at the lowest heat possible.

 

Grill your chicken any way you see fit.

 

To serve: pour half of the vegetables in a plate, drizzle with some olive oil and sprinkle with some dried basil (or cut some leaves of fresh basil to pieces), put the chicken breast on top and add gorgonzola sauce.

 

Enjoy!

I once accepted a challenge from someone to eat an entire block of cheese in a sandwich. Someday, I intend to complete that challenge.
