Hi everyone! Its been a busy few weeks and I had little or no time to cook anything tangible for this blog. Either that or when I cooked, I was so hungry and ate before I could take a picture!*hides face in shame* Well here is a really quick dinner that my roommates and I ate on our last night together in 2010. We are all going away to our families in the next few days, so we had a little dinner. Nothing fancy! Hope you enjoy.
Grease the pan with 1tbs of oil and place defrosted fish in pan. Add seasoning salt, oregano and black peppers to taste. allow to fry for about 15mins, turning fish every 5mins.
Grease pan with 1tbs oil, add mixed veggies and allow to fry for 5 mins. Add 3 tbs of soy sauce and 3 tbs of oyster sauce. Add chili sauce if you wish. Stir and allow to cook for 10mins.
Peel potatoes and boil in salted water for 10mins or until considerably soft. Grease pan and add potatoes. sprinkle basil on potatoes and allow to roast for 7 mins. stirring occasionally so it does not get burnt.
This meal took me approximately 30mins to make (with the help of my roommates) But it is really easily and really tasty!!! Try it and let me know!
****Serve with a glass of white wine for maximum laughs...:D
Merry Christmas and Happy new yr to all my readers! I would be at my parents till the new year. I would try to update from home! Till next time
One of the things about visiting a lot of food blogs daily is that I get a lot of inspiration on what to cook. Sometimes they do not even have to be food blogs just regular blogs inspire me and I am grateful. On one of my numerous blogrounds(I dont remember which blog sorrrry!!!!) The blogger mentioned Curry goat and Roti and I just felt an instant hunger pang(Exaggeration much???..lol)and set out to make it the next day. Here is a simple recipe.
(click to view larger image) Curry Goat
1lb goat meat-cut into bite sizes 1 large onion, chopped 3 Scotch bonnet peppers, 1 teaspoon allspice/adobo salt to taste black pepper to taste 3 tablespoons curry powder (more or less to taste) 2 garlic cloves, minced
Season meat with the seasoning salt. Heat the cooking oil in a large pot & add 1 Tablespoon of the curry powder. Cook stirring constantly until the curry powder darkens quite a bit . Put meat in pot along with onions, scallions, garlic & scotch bonnet pepper. Fry a little (about 5 minutes) over medium heat. Add thyme, remaining curry powder, black pepper & a little (1/2 teaspoon) of seasoning salt. Cover with water & simmer uncovered until meat is very tender & sauce is thick. Taste sauce & add more salt, if necessary.
Roti Flour – 1 cup Salt – 1/2 tsp Oil – 4 tsp Warm Water – 3/4 cup All-purpose flour – for rolling and dusting
In a large mixing bowl, mix Flour and Salt well. Add Oil and mix until all lumps are gone.Add Warm Water a little at a time to form a medium soft dough ball. Do not overwork the dough. Add few drops of Oil and coat the dough ball. Cover and let it rest for 15 minutes.Heat skillet on medium heat. Knead the dough once and divide into golf ball size balls.Dip one ball into the All-purpose flour to coat and roll it out into a thin disc. Keep dipping the rotli into the dry flour to prevent it from sticking to the rolling surface. Flip to the other side once you see bubbles appear on the surface. Allow it to cook for 10-15 seconds.
This was a G.O.O.D. dinner on a snowy evening after work. Hope you enjoy!!!

This week I am challenging myself to eat three times a day. I have VERY bad eating habits where I just do not eat. Not because I do not have food at home, but because I am not hungry. This has made my metabolism VERY slow. I am trying to jump start it(sigh). along with my ridiculous gym regimen, It is about to be a GOOD winter!
So today I cheated a little.. I went to church without eating..:( But I had a Jamaican patty right after church and got home and made this YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY DINNER! It might not be the healthiest but I was craving something messy with bbq sauce all over it. Tehehehehe..and voila..:)
I am making these YUMMY cupcakes tomorrow if you are in the Ottawa area (and I know you) stop by my house and grab one around 7ish. lol
*Have a good week..watch out for my article on www.jaguda.com soon! *I also just signed up for a new project locally(Ottawa) as well! I am excited about it too! I'll fully let the cat out of the bag once I have everything set in stone! * I am going to start a new section about drinks soon..I love making different drinks too and discovering new drinks..alcoholic and virgin..:) Watch out or that!
p.s Pardon my horrible photography. The lighting in my new kitchen is horrible and my flash was SO far away..and I was too hungry to go get it! lol

#FactAboutMe I do not eat eggs. Among many other things. I am not a picky eater, I just do not fancy eggs. If I discuss the main reasons for not eating them on this blog, I think I might offend some people. So I would just keep it moving with the post. Tehehe
Among my friends, it is common knowledge that I can cook. Even though I might not make something often if i am given a recipe I can possibly make it. So almost weekly I get asked to make almost everything you can think of. The bestie asked me this week to make him some scotch eggs. I immediately said "I don't eat eggs so I cant do it" to which he replied "who told you to eat it? I just want scotch eggs joor" Anyways he had to beg and beg and beg and I called him "beggy beggy" after which I looked up the recipe. Turns out it is actually not that difficult to make. So I set out to make something I would not eat. Here is the process.
Boil the eggs...
This is all you need basically..
cover the eggs in the sausage meat...
roll in bread crumbs
DEEP FRY OR BAKE
I think it turned out really well. This is what it is supposed to look like right? My roommate from St Vincent ate it and she loved it so much. So I guess it tasted good. lol
