Serendipity in the kitchen - a random thread

I made an apple tarte tatin tonight but I put far too much cinnamon in it and I was worried it would taste awful. Turns out it was bloody amazing.

I tried to cook lamb chops for the first time ever the other day and they turned out surprisingly delicious and kind of perfect. I was very proud of myself and wholeheartedly advocate the killing of baby mammals for the sake of dinner.

assface cheapo ikea wok just started losing its non-stick shit all through my dinner. ARGH.

i've managed to pick most of it out, but i'm a bit worried that maybe i didn't get it all and i might die of teflon poisoning.

i made some apple crumble muffins the other day, speaking of apples and cinnamon. they were pretty alright.

I'm trying to work out an apple cinnamon cookie recipe for a special cookie cutter I ordered. I make apple oatmeal ones, but they're drop cookies and I want these to be shaped.

This is maybe a little bit sad, but I just put together a greek salad that looked so good that I had to take a photo of it. It didn't taste half bad either.

That looks like it might belong in a recipe book.

Should we make an anorak recipe book?

I've had a long period of frequently consuming Greek salads. Then I started replacing the feta with mozarella, adding avocado, et cetera, until it transformed completely away from its original Greek form.

It sure looks tasty though (although I'm not too fond of red onions)!

Mmmm, sounds good, and also more demure than the Greek temptress some others in this thread prefer.

that is one thing i've always disliked about olives, that the pit-hole (does it have a name?) looks like an anus. i'm alright with the fact that i eat food that at one time did have an anus but i don't want to see it there right on my plate.

I made a corking sauce for my dindins last night. I shopped up some mango and bunged it in a saucepan for a few minutes with a half teaspoon of chopped red chilli and quarter teaspoon of chopped garlic, a tablespoon of applejuice and some crushed ginger. Then I whizzed it in the blender and poured it over 2 chicken breasts and popped the lot into the oven for 25 minutes. It was fabulous. The perfect combination of sweet and hot for my taste. I had one breast last night (hot) and plan to have the other tonight (cold). Served with a baby leaf salad and anya potatoes both ways. Nommy nom. If I do say so myself.
Give over.

I had a last minute cooking drama in the kitchen today. Just before everything was done, the pan with potatoes fell over to the ground. In a stupid reflex I tried to catch it and burned my hand quite badly. Plus all my food was on the floor.

I let out some pretty loud Dutch curses, I'll have you know.

I'm not sure how to take that. Only then? And stupid? I'm ok if that's what you're worried about, thanks for asking.

Pffft.

Does anyone else occasionally get the urge to have beans and a sausage in a mug?

It sounds brilliant but I've never tried it.
And by me, I mean, Flexo.

Not really in a mug, but in a bowl for sure.

Beans, sliced up sausages and cut up bacon, all mixed together in a bowl, stir in some brown sauce or maybe curry powder, grate some cheese over and eat with a few slices of bread.

Thats about as experimental as i get in the kitchen, but it's a simple, tasty dinner.
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner

I think the whole of Anorak has gone stark staring bonkers this morning.
