I've just had a Minions Mac & Cheese Cup, which my daughter brought from the US for my delight.

My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

Pat, what have you done to p**s off Katie? :shock: :shock: That stuff is NOT food. It may well be Trump's hair coloring.

As fast, dried, rubbish goes, it was quite nice! I'd have it again.

After an evening of running around a corn maze in the dark, I am snacking on Italian wine salami, gruyere, and cornichons. Mostly so I can have that glass of sparkling I've been promising myself since the belt test.

We had fried chicken for dinner, which goes better with the theme, but you know how it is, you have to snack with what you just randomly happen to have on hand... :wink:

Eating lots of "leftovers" from the weekend cooking binge. Treated myself to a massage after work and had dinner all ready when I came home. What a way to improve a Monday. :D

I wish it would get cold though. Still in the 70s and it's really hard to get excited about chili at that temperature. The first cold front is going to be a huge shock. Glad I'm squirreling away lots of soup in the freezer. :wink:

It's one of the ones I told you about in New Orleans
Mulligatawny is curried (usually vegetable) soup

My recipe is

Paste:
1 tbsp tamarind seeds
6 medium red chillies
6 six cloves garlic
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp fennel seed
6 black peppercorns
6 white peppercorns
1 tsp salt
6 dried leaves of curry-plant or curry-grass (you can substitute 3 bay leaves)

Veggies:
1 red onion
1 white onion
6 medium tomatoes

Grind all the paste ingredients to a powder, and add a little milk or yoghurt to make a thick paste

Fry the finely chopped red onion in lemon juice and oil (or lemon oil if you can get it) until they start to brown

Add the paste and stir around until the onions are completely coated, then cover, add a little water and fry until soft

Add the chopped tomatoes and the other coarsely chopped onion and a pint of vegetable stock

Bring to the boil, then simmer gently

Add whatever chopped veggies you like - I use peppers, courgettes (zucchini), sweet potato and a grated carrot

Cover and simmer for ~30 minutes or until all the veggies are soft

Add one or two tbsp yoghurt or cream, stir and serve with home-made puri, or rice, or roasted potato wedges

I usually add rice or soup pasta.
One recipe I discovered included baked beans as the veg!
