Due to ongoing time constraints, its another quick linky post from me tonight. I adapted this recipe with the only changes being oyster sauce for bean paste and beef mince for pork. Simply because that was what we had in the house. Served over steamed rice it was a tasty treat.
This week’s slow food market yielded a lovely little collection of eggplants. A handful of different varieties and colours that I simply could not walk past. Nor could I wait to eat them. They were required market evening eating. I had been eyeing off a recipe for eggplant and red miso for some time. It […]
Parental brag first. So and Heir rode over 10km today in two separate stetches. LIttle champ. I bet he sleeps well tonight. The way home was harder than the way there but he made it! Now that’s out of the way, let’s move on to food shall we? You may not be surprised to hear […]

I was just loving the thought of this afternoon. Lot’s of kitchen pottering to do. Dinner to make, lunches to prepare for tomorrow, yoghurt cheese, goats milk yoghurt to make, bread to bake, kombucha to brew. So much fun to be had. One thing I didn’t factor in though…fighting Ankle Biters. I swear the little […]
This is a lovely spring dish but it would be lovely in winter too. I used the lovely long thin asian eggplants. I find they don’t have the bitterness of the big egg shaped eggplants so don’t need to be salted before cooking. I was considering making a straight eggplant and olive caponata to go […]
