Worrall Thompson eat your heart out

Today after a morning watching food programs I decided that I should make an effort to produce some fancy food for myself. After racking my brain I decided that I would make a pork casserole - it being fairly easy. I checked out a few recipes online, but they were all rather shit so I just made up my own recipe, which I will reproduce below:

  • 400 grams diced pork
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1/4 clove of garlic
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 leek
  • a few closed cup mushrooms
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 pork stock cube (knorr)
  • 1 can of strongbow - preferebly left over from a house party, but make do with buying some if necessary
  • salt and pepper

This is very easy to preper, just chop up all the veg, put everything in a casserole dish, add the cider and stock, cover and place in preheated oven at 175 C for 1 and a half hours. This dish is accompanied by a sweet potato/normal potato mash as follows:

  • 2 medium sized potatoes
  • 1 sweet potato
  • some butter
  • coarse ground pepper

Boil the potatoes, then mash up and add the butter and pepper, et voila! This casserole should serve two - or if your eating it on your own like I was :( - then will leave enough to keep for another day. The mash is especially nice even if I do say so myself. Now get to your kitchen's everybody - I want to hear those pots and pans rattling. Send me your comments and suggestions on what you think of this or alternates to this recipe.

That end todays cookery corner - I may change the supposed nature of this blog from astrophysics to cooking, but then again we all know that I've never really kept up on the astrophysics news side of things so we'll see how long this new fad lasts!
