    Awesome

    Can I just say i've been composing and nixing a food type entry for some time.

    I usually don't compose, or think much in depth about what I write. I tend to take pics, then write a blurb. House ... child .. garden ... house .. child .. garden ... that's it really.

    But I like to cook, but I am PARTICULAR .. so I was sort of doing a list of naughty and nice ..
    Naughty - people that sauce/season their food without tasting it first, I want to knife them
    Nice - my flu-time brew of mushies, garlic, ginger and chilli - I drain and drink as a tonic and I swear by it .. plus it's yummy ...

    I don't bake, or do sweet things. No-one here has a sweet tooth. However, we do swoon over a cheese platter. Therefore, I do savoury. Dinner is my field of interest.

    Quite per chance, as i've been a bit busy lately, I happened on a recipe this morning I just thought "oh yes, that is soooo tonight"

    And I don't follow recipes much.
    I cook by intuition ( with a base knowledge of what works and how )

    BUT

    This recipe: Ginger and Sesame Rice with Poached Chicken

    Made me swoon.
    Tonight.

    I am typing with it fresh in my belly, all warming and good. 'Tis good. And simple.
    As food should be.

    Thanks Kim.

    I'm drooling! I think I'm going to have to try that later in the week because it sounds lovely. Did you have any vegies on the side?

    meggie said...

    Yes, that recipe sounded really yummy. I inted trying it also.
    Nice to see it recommended twice.

    Love the warm-in-the-belly sensation.
    Do you find you have to make things mild for Master or will he eat the spicy?

    Em said...

    Okay, you've sold me. I'm going to give it a go.

    h&b said...

    Gina - yes, I meant to add the the best thing about this recipe is that I could serve the Master up, then stir through the chilli for us at the last minute.

    I sometimes forget when i'm cooking hot things :(

    Melody said...

    Yes, I love simple and easy food. And you know what, they usually taste the best! That recipe does look good. Might have to make it myself! Monet doesn't mind eating spicy things. Last week I made 'the' spiciest (accidental!) chow mein EVER and Monet loved it!! Bizarre. I posted the recipe on my recipe blog if you have a look...

    THAT, m'dear, is making me huuuungry! YUM!!!!! Good 'n simple is the only way to go!

    You wouldn't want to eat with my mum and dad - salt and pepper all the way before they've tasted it. A find it a bit insulting - as if they have to ADD flavour to my food. But they do it everytime, everywhere - not one of their better habits.

    I think that dish is on the menu round our way very soon! If it's simple to do and yummy, then it's my sort of meal.

    I've already admitted that I'm a merely competent cook (most of the time) with a knack for burnt offerings, and it's highly unlikely that i'll ever prefer a dish for you, so I'm begging you : PLEASE DON'T KNIFE ME!!! I quite often don't taste my own cooking. I just don't always feel like doing it, and I'm not sure why.

    Stomper Girl said...

    Hmm, that should be "prepare a meal for you" not "prefer" a meal. My bad.

    h&b said...

    No, no, no - I don't often taste my own cooking either ;)

    It's when it's on the plate and people pour something like tomato sauce all over it without first TASTING if it needed extra sauce/salt etc that makes me want to knife them.

    Obviously, hot chips, and sausages, rissoles etc are an exception.

    just noticed your comment...and yep boy does it run.....its more the doing than the wearing

    the coloured pasta that is

    carolyn said...

    Sounds good I could do with a good swoon type meal.

    Muzbot said...

    I'm such a crap cook... well, it's more that I prefer to eat out than cook. The last time I cooked was sometime last year. It was a risotto I think. Not a sweet fan either. Your family is lucky to have someone who loves cooking savory. I bet when winter rolls around the meals are mighty tasty in your household.

    I've copied down that recipe and am going to make it this week. Sick of all my dinners!

    Kim said...

    Haha! So glad you're sharing the love because - as you can well attest - how good is that dish!
