LTK, I will use frozen spinach for saag paneer only because you are supposed to squeeze as much liquid out of the spinach as possible and it's a whole hell of a lot easier to do with frozen than fresh. But I honestly hate the taste of spinach, so both kinds taste equally bad to me. My husband (who is the one that devours saag paneer) doesn't really care either way in regards to fresh or frozen, he just really likes spinach. So neither of us really seem to notice much of a difference, even though we have very different tastes.

Well, no food pr0n, but between the local Asian market and farmer's market, made a nice stir fry.  I used pork for hotpot (nice and thinly sliced, although any protein source would work), 3 baby bok choi, 2 small white onions, 3 small green bell peppers, a couple handfuls of bean sprouts, 3 cloves of garlic, several sliced Thai chillis (these weren't all that hot), fresh ginger, five spice, fish sauce (1 tsp), 1 persimmon (all I had, I should have used two), and a couple tbsp of oyster sauce. 

The pork was thin enough that I just threw everything in there at once, so the veggies would remain crispy when it all cooked.  Should have used a bit more ginger and five spice, but it still turned out pretty good.

This year I've been doing two things on my gas grill.
Making Pizza
and
Deep Frying.

The pros of this are 1) you don't have a 600 F oven heating up your house in the summer. and 2) deep frying in the house is hella messy. It's like if they had a flavored spray oil called "burnt" and you just covered everything in your kitchen and adjacent rooms with it. Outside with a big lodge cast iron skillet, it's great.

Cooked steaks for myself and Partner for the first time and I'm pretty chuffed. The steak was high quality which helped a lot but other than only owning a tiny pan making it a little awkward, cooking it was a lot easier than I expected.

Think I've found my new favourite recipe. Super simple, garlic and lemon chicken. Getting a slow cooker was a great move.

Saturday, didn't want to go out and I didn't want to order any take-out.

I ended up looking around for what I had and ended up making a pizza with a pesto base, topped with mozzarella, cheddar, bacon and shredded duck breast.

And you know what? It was pretty damned tasty!

Also bought a cast iron griddle pan and I'm loving the way it's cooking steaks now, like much better than in a normal pan.

I tried making Bolo de Rolo (a Brazilian style of roll cake) again. It was a disaster, but it was less of a disaster than the last time I tried making it, so I think that's progress.

I'm making rhubarb and red onion chutney and the house smells amazing. This may be the greatest thing I've ever made.
