I feel like I’ve been tied to my kitchen all week.
Last Sunday, I fried fish. Never again, I swear my house still smells like fish despite light candles every day.
Cheese rolls, which in an attempt to get them brown I left in the oven way too long so they exploded. Tasted fantastic regardless. 🙂
Beef patties. A labour of love that I can not say I will be repeating.
On Tuesday I started my traditional pot of Pepperpot or as I used to call it when my kids were small “Black chicken”. It is a “stew” of meat, mainly beef and/or pork, cassareep and spices eaten with bread or rice. It is cooked for at least 2 days before consumption.
This year for Christmas I decided to make a couple of gifts as my parents need NOTHING. So for my Mom and Dad I made
Holiday spiced nuts. I only used 5 cups of nuts but it still turned out well.
For my Mom, I made Bailey’s
For my Dad who has issues with dairy, I made a non-dairy version.
FYI, the dairy version is very simple to make and tastes so good in coffee. 😀
Today my Mom and Aunt are coming over for dinner. I am making turkey parts (legs and thighs), potatoes, stuffing, gravy and steamed Brussels sprouts and carrots.
After tonight I am retiring from the kitchen for a while.
