Yeah but good for you for trying something new, keep tweeking.
I seem to cook the same things week in week out. I realise Its because food is getting so expensive and its difficult to waste when things go wrong, or you like it-but no one else does! Oh I can feel a Nigella Moment coming on. cheers

I think I might make a kind of vegetable bake today -

I think yesterday was a planet too far -


I tried doing pork/chicken kebabs last week and they were wizard - I found marinating the meat in olive oil lemon juice and chili flakes first quickened their cooking.

Rolling Eyes Lemon juice will start the cooking of on its own Mrs P and the olive oil will also be good to  get those juices going when the Heat hits it and those chilli flakes will impart their flavour lovely all tho the chilli when cooking can hit the back of your throat making you cough a little and your eyes to water a bit  Laughing  I love Jamaican jerk seasoning which I buy from a Caribbean store and black pepper I find it go's with most things including gravy's, soups, stew's, as well as a Marinate  I love the stuff  cool2

Last night I bought a pre made hambuger from supermarket put in pan and cook .
Hambuger and pork & beans simples. 

Except the hambuger didn't cook and I don't know why. It seemed to me it was the pan log enough ,but it wasn't. Maybe it's the stove that don't do it right. I can tell you half cooked hambuger is no good !Beans you can eat out the can so's half cooked beans is ok  lol!

A friend dropped round after work - and I offered him supper - he selected an Iceland chicken teriyaki  stirfry plus musrooms and fresh chili -

I thought the pot was HOT when it all got tipped in - by the smoke - and I know the pack said 20 minutes - but he was done in ten - he topped it with two chili sauces and chili flakes - admitting it could have done with longer -

I think he had a death wish

Rolling Eyes Mrs P if I do any Iceland meals and I do have them when I want some thing quick, I normally pop into micro wave do them for recommended setting but for half the time stated, I then leave to stand for a minute or two then blast them again for the other time that was remaining plus a couple minutes, all ways perfectly cooked and pipeing hot  Wink I think our Niagra could well do with a Micro wave cooker a single mans best friend they say or a none cooker persons best friend the holy Grail of the meat pie  Laughing for Niagra's  first lesson don't put any thing metal i.e. tin foil wrappers or trays, knifes forks or spoons inside a micro wave or Caboom  micro wave is gone up in smoke ok  
 Laughing ,,,Right Hambergers  bung in cold Hamburger in the bap or cob and full power for a couple minutes should be enough, taste it first and if not hot enough bung in again for another minute simple, most packet meals come with micro wave cooking instructions on packet, take those times and settings and in my experience add a couple minutes on to stated times, beans open tin empty tin into a small pan bug tin away and turn gas on light it and put pan on flame stir beans using a wood spoon or any spoon that comes to hand, keep stiring until you see it start to bubble it should be hot enough at that point, pour over some toast or side of plate if its part of a fry up  :w1:don't say you don't know how to do toast do you  Shocked take as many slices you want and turn grill on let grill heat up for a few minutes then bung bread onto grill pan and slide under grill flame wait checking all the time until you see bread browning,wait until one side is well brown not black then turn bread over and do same other side as soon as bread is brown both side you have Toast, turn gas off and butter toast or have it plain your choice  Wink there you now know how to do toast so now you can have a hot meal of Bergers and Beans on Toast  Laughing  Laughing

Oh my goodness Stumpy, Smash and bread and butter, that took me back to my student days. It was several weeks before my mother told me it would be far nicer if I added boiling water to the smash...do you know  she was right, delicious cheers
