don't have a cow man!

Friday night i went for simple and filling
I sliced some thin frying steak and coated it in a mixture of flour, cajun spices and paprika, before frying it, and then chucked it onto spaghetti, with i mixed up with ricotta, fresh minced coriander, garlic and green pesto.
All in one bowl, eat in front of the TV. Perfect for a friday night. The only things i'd say are, it's not very pretty, but then, comfort food, so who cares, and it was a bit dry, I think a combination of ricotta and creme fraiche (sp?) might work better, in the meantime, beer combated the dryness nicely.

Sunday I attempted roast beef, I have only tried this a couple of times without much joy, this time was much better, although well done, rather than medium, the beef was very nice, and to give it a bit of flavour i poured cajun rub over the top before cooking, as the fat melted through the meat it carried the flavour with it so every mouthful was permeated with a light spiciness. Chuck yorkshire puds, roasties and gravy on with a few mixed veg, and everyone is a happy bunny.

    That roast beef sounds delish!

    What's a yorkshire pudding?

    Does roastie mean potato??

    I'm learning so much from you!

    Yes, a roastie is a roasted potato, yummy. Yorshire pudding is just the same sort of batter you would use for toad in the hole,cooked and is a traditional side dish for roast beef. I shall get Marks dads recipe, since he cooks them from scratch and lives in yorkshire at the moment. :)
