Re: Ready, Set, Cook Discussion Thread

Kids  lol

Nakita knows that if she has a day off she isnt aloud out of bed - she has a tv & dvd in her room.  If you dont enforce it she will be getting out of her bed & start opening her craft boxes or beading containers - how can a sick kid make that much mess?

Clayton when he is sick is happy to lay on the lounge with a blanket & watch dvd after dvd - last year we got him all 5 seasons of Ben10 plus the movie that was out then. It was expensive but has saved my sanity twice this year when he has been unwell.

Re: Ready, Set, Cook Discussion Thread

I cooked the "Salmon and tomato" challenge tonight using Chef Tom's recipe for "Salmon in a basil cream sauce".

I added slices of grilled tomato to the dish for the tomato component, which went well with the basil sauce.

In between stages were not photographed as the dish moves quickly and I did not want the salmon to overcook.

This dish was very tasty, with the salmon still a little pink.  yummy

Re: Ready, Set, Cook Discussion Thread

Im sorry I missed posting the next months challenges yesterday, I have to start work in 20 mins so will do it this afternoon.  Just handed in my resignation to work on Monday so have been a bit preoccupied with job searching.

Re: Ready, Set, Cook Discussion Thread

Hi MrsM, good luck with your new career, hope you find something suitable  crossed


I'm going to have a go at this one, slight changes will have to be made as I can't afford $20 for that much creme fraiche!

Re: Ready, Set, Cook Discussion Thread

That looks impressive Luvmegrub! Jamie isn't a fan of the bechamel sauce, is he. I might try my vegetarian lasagne recipe but make changes to make my daughter like it more! It has a cheese sauce with ricotta mixed in, but she really dislikes ricotta and can pick it a mile away. Maybe creme fraiche - or something similar and cheaper, will work better. smile
