Ok every one,Christmas/ Holidays' is over. We are all feeling a little depressed as January grind's on. Dead Plant's, dark night's, shite weather, however, all is not lost, given that we enjoy an International Forum, I feel we should take advantage of our unique situation.

Now, I don't know about you, but I enjoy some Comfort Eating, during this dark time, so, I thought, we should share our Comfort Eating Recipe's.

What is it that you run to during this time, ?. What is it that get's you through the winter. What do you eat that takes you the rest of the year to get rid of.

Come on you bunch of closet GEEKS, share your stuff, (not you Data, your well out of the closet  Cheesy) Let's find out what is truely fuelling the future of computing.

Your Recipe's please.  idea

Haha, I guess I am a geek yes.

I made some nice roast potatoes yesterday, nothing like a good roast at this time of year, surprisingly mild as it is.  This is a doddle to do.

1) Chop up some spuds.
2) Boil/Steam for 10 Mins.
3) Preheat a shallow roasting pan roughly half full of oil for 5 mins in oven at circa 200C or 180C fan oven.  You can do this half way through boiling the spuds if your oven heats up quick.
4) Remove pan & oil - gently put in spuds and roll in the oil - watch those fingers !  Maybe use a knife or spoon and get the spuds covered in oil.
5) Sprinkle with Rosemary.
6) Cook at same temp for 40-45 minutes to get them nice and crispy.
7) Don't bother turning them.
Cool Make sure you have cooked other things too.

The End.

LOL Freddy  lol

I’m no cook so can’t really contribute, but my favourite food is fresh bread, not the pre-sliced stuff, oh no I mean real freshly baked bread.

Go to Sainsburys and get a French stick covered in poppy seeds (has to be Sainsburys they make the best).

Slice it in half then fill the two halves with mature Cheddar cheese, tomato and chilli then sprinkle with salt. 

Eat both halves as quickly as possible, maybe give one of them to your spouse. 

I’m happy  Cheesy

Ooh! This sounds like fun! I'm in!

Dave's Western Meatloaf

Ingredients:

1 lb Lean ground beef
1 lb Hot Itallian Sausage (ground, not links)
1 small red bell pepper
1 small green bell pepper
2 small garlic cloves, crusuhed
1/2 lb medium cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes (1/4 to 1/3 inch)
1/2 cup Sourdough Croutons, crushed into crumbs
2 small eggs

Steps:

(you're going to be getting your hands dirty here, since using your hands is by far the best way to combine these ingredients)

1.) Preheat oven to 350°F
2.) In a very large mixing bowl, combine beef, sausage, eggs and bread crumbs until well blended.
3.) chop the bell peppers finely (after removing the seeds, of course), combine with the crushed garlic, and sautee over medium heat with no oil in a non-stick skillet for 3-5 minutes, or until just tender.
4.) Fold pepper mixture into the meat mixture until fully mixed.
5.) Add cheese cubes into the mixture, again making sure it's well mixed.
6.) Place mixture into 2-3 medium sized loaf pans, set into the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until no longer pink inside.

Serves a WHOLE LOT of people!

I never thought that this would get any posts. How wrong can one person be.  lol

Ok, here's mine. Not for you Data,as it contains stuff that was walking around under it's own steam.

Take 8 Bangers, (Sausages to the yanks), Cumberland are best. (Sorry yanks)
Cook in the oven, gas mark 7. ( What ever that is in a foreign language) Most of the fat will drain away.
Chop one large onion and two large Mushrooms.
Mix two table spoons of Ketchup and Brown sauce, add some Garlic granules to taste.
Once the Bangers have browned, drain a little of the hot fat into a frying pan/scillet.
Fry the onions and mushrooms until golden brown.
Add the chopped up Bangers and the Ketchup mix.
Cook on a high heat until reduced.
Serve on some French Bread and enjoy.

Heaven help your heart with this one, but, it tastes so good.  Tongue

When I do roast spuds, I put 'em in for about 30 mins at 200C (gas mark 6 or 7). 200F seems a little low. Should that be 'C'?
Water boils at 212F, 100C, 373K.

Need some help here.

I have been experimenting with a Garnish for Steak. What I have used is Fresh Sweey Peppers, cleaned and sliced, Diced Smoked Bacon and Onion. However, I have used White Onion, Red Onion and Spring Onion to add some extra flavour (not all at the same time I must add) but, it needs something else to add a different flavour. This little lot is shallow fried in Olive oil just to heat it only.

Any ideas anyone.  scratch-head

Diesel have you tries a touch of Dijon spicy mustard and barbeque sauce, you could also switch out the Olive oil to a salad dressing. I used Italian salad dressing and came out great Smiley

Black pepper and/ or garlic also adds great flavor.

Diced Rhubarb also adds a different and unique flavor providing one like the Rhubarb
