The pie and soup I made yesterday has fed two people for dinner, lunch and dinner again. So it looks like my chicken will actually stretch over four days. Today I cooked a chicken, chorizo and rice bake and I made some white bread for the side. I think I should have let the bread to proof for longer than I did (i.e. rise in the bowl before you cook it) but it looks and tastes fine. I can’t eat anything more today, so I won’t try the rice bake until tomorrow. I did take the liberty of changing the recipe to include 200ml chicken stock (from yesterday) and 200ml water. Having only 400ml water sounded a little lacking in flavour….but what would I know.
More than one person has told me that I must be an excellent cook and have tons of gadgets in my kitchen. Both are incorrect. I like to cook, but I’m not a great cook. For example, I forgot to take the pips out of the squash yesterday…I’d get fired from a restaurant for that, but it still tasted great to me. Secondly, here’s a picture of my preparation surface. I have a knife and chopping board! They’re all my gadgets. Oh, maybe apart from my N810. I use twecpie on the N810 whilst I cook. Finally, you may also pick out a bowl of yesterdays soup I was eating as I was waiting for the bread to proof
