So yesterday. Day one:
I learnt to make a proper cup of cocoa for the husband. However he didn't enjoy it as much as hot chocolate but its a skill to have.
I learnt that dark chocolate chips in an apple and pear crumble can only improve things :) (have I previously mentioned oatmeal in crumbles?!? Makes them all crunchy - just add a handful)
And I learnt that James Martins bread mix is really not very good!!! It didn't rise and was very stodgy - does this look like a good loaf to you?!?
So onto today - Day 2
I learnt that sometimes an oven chip sandwich is the only thing that will do
And I cooked these potato cakes for the little mans dinner.
Very easy to make - mix leftover mash potato with 2tbsp of flour, an egg and a handful of cheese. I then shaped them into patties and open frozen them before putting in a freezer bag. To cook I started to fry them as stated in the recipe but they were cooking in the middle so I shoved them under the grill.
The possibilities of these are endless and I will add some other bits another time - such as peas, ham, tuna.
