To all those people who keep not coming over, this is what you've been missing out on ;)

Fondue for two

On account of having been stood up two weekends in a row, we decided we'd do our own fondue anyway.  It was fricken awesome! ;)  Altho I did mean we ate over half a block of chocolate each .. oops!! ;)

Friday Veggies

For some reason (can't have been Masterchef I'm sure) .. most likely because I'd eaten *crap* all day.. I felt like cooking veggies tonight.

So this is what I made:

Friday veggies
It was all really just experimenting.  I fried some onion, garlic, oregano, Greek seasoning and some of the mushroom in some oil, while cooking some portabella mushrooms and capsicum halves in the oven.  Then I mixed  the stuffing mix with some cheese, breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.  Plomped the "stuffing" on top of the mushrooms and in the capsicum halves and cooked for a while longer.  I also cooked some bok choy which was getting old in the fridge in some butter and garlic.  It was all pretty tasty, but quite a bit of work (took over 3/4 hour to prepare and cook).

Then I made Stu watch Babe, cause he'd never seen it   (!!)
I think he liked it :)

Omelette!

I felt like cooking something warm for lunch today.  Thought I could give an omelette a go.  I don't think I've ever cooked an omelette before!  And I've only ever done scrambled eggs half a dozen times *tops*.  So I really had no idea what to do.  Internet to the rescue!!

This is everything in the pan cooking

And the finished result

Stu thought it was excellent.  Which is the main thing I suppose heh.
I made another one after that for me, and I thought it was yummy too, but awfully filling..!

Apple Sauce!

We were all set for a dinner party tonight, except our guests couldn't come at the last minute.  So we cooked the roast anyway ;)

One thing I decided to do this time was to make a real apple sauce for the roast pork.  Just three apples, a little sugar and water, and a sprinkling of cinnamon.  But sooooo yummy!  So much nicer than the stuff you get in a bottle, and much better for you too probably.  

We have plenty of leftovers for the week now.. :)
We (I) used to cook pizzas every Friday night.  Until I got sick of them.  We haven't had any in probably a year or so. But last time we went shopping we picked up some pizza bases (just lebanese bread) and so I made some tonight.  They were pretty good.  Best not to overdo things though methinks.. :)
