As a starter for my date night gourmet burgers, I decided to make some chicken, pesto and coconut cream pies.
We had the family over for lunch on Sunday and as my dad loves a good lamb curry, I decided on an Indian menu with the curry made in a potjie over the coals for a South African twist.
I recently came back from an over landing trip in Africa that took me a month. This had an impact on my cooking time and I decided to make up for it by creating a couple of dishes. Seeing that it is winter time and very cold in Cape Town currently, I decided to make 5 different soups.
Last night’s French menu for date night was filled with culinary mishaps but we still ended up eating lots of good food.
A friend of mine recently gave me a nice cut of bacon. Upon first seeing the piece of meat I thought it was a duck breast. The idea of duck got stuck in my mind and I decided to convert an Angry Duck recipe into “Angry Pork”. This will then be a starter for date night where the two other dishes are Mexican Soup and Lamb Shank with oven roasted veg.
OK, so winter is upon us, so we have to take the soup pot out! Normally I start the first soup of the winter with a chicken based soup. This winter is no different.
Feeling nostalgic for our Bali holiday so long ago I decided on an
Indonesian menu for this week’s date night. Continue reading Indonesian Menu – Pork Sate, Coconut Chicken, Gado Gado and Bami Goreng
