I tried that and it was really good!

I did struggle with the omelette to get it properly cooked, but it helps if I read the instructions,
Yeah you have to steam the top of it to keep it moist, while the bottom is being cooked.

Pan fried pork chops done in salted butter, salt, pepper, & chili flake seasoning with a dash of honey & lime juice. They were amazing, not even gonna mention the rest that went with it.

My tapeworm simply was not in the mood for any delays :ROFL: Had a nice char on the outside, fat was crispy and the flesh tender and juicy as hell...

Next time I'll take pics because I'm definitely doing this again!

I guess everyone has their first time, this just seems like an odd one to get to so late in life.

Or do you mean not from a packet and going full manual?

I prefer my curries with a bit more oomph but one of the kids wanted it so that's what I made.

It was mostly manual - I didn't grind all of the spices myself, just some of them.

Hoping to have chickpea curry.

But eish, using uncooked chickpeas I thought I could get away with a 5 min boil then cool for a few hours in that water then cook again but this last cook is taking hours to soften up. Yeah, should soak overnight or use pressure cooker but I had neither patience nor pot. So **** knows when this chickpea curry will be ready. Rolling past hour 3 now...

Wife picked out our desserts for the night.

Something called "Oops I spilled my pot plant" for me.
Chocolate soil, amarula crème patisserie, amarula mousse, hazelnut brittle and coffee syrup.

Was nice but very heavy on the Amarula.

Wife had Melktert with fresh gooseberries, gooseberry jelly and gooseberry syrup. I cleaned her plate for every last drop of that tangy gooseberry syrup. Stunning.
