Tomorrow, I'm cooking a casserole with chicken, almonds, soy sauce, cornflour, onions and pineapple. Never made it in my life before but you know it sounds kinda nice, plus of course I have all the ingredients in my cupboard. What to have with it? Rice or potatoes? Or pasta? Have all three though the potatoes aren't very great tasting.
Definitely rice. Whatever you have in your cupboard. But if you care to, you could experiment with "Texmati" or "Jasmati", American varieties of rices. Or go overboard and get some jasmine or basmati rice, if you have a supplier of these rices.
So it'll be rice, according to all of you and many thanks for your suggestions:) I've only got paella rice in the cupboard (and no money to go out buy more) so it'll be that. And of course you are all welcome:))) Alicante airport is the nearest to here if you find some cheap flights! Oh and if it's nice, I'll post the full recipe tomorrow night!
7 to cater for - no probs! Hey I'm looking forward to this now! Cheese and crackers bring, but hey this is espana, don't bring wine..that's like taking coals to Newcastle (sorry an old British expression), we are a wine producing nation!
Expats welcome here - they bring cheap goods from the UK! Marmite is great for repelling mosquitoes, apparently, but I prefer Bovril!! To drink I mean not for mosquitoes. DEET does very well thankyou Peanut butter nah! Baked beans? The little tins because I can't eat a whole one. Bring some pan bread please!! Oh I could make a list up. They want nearly £2 for a tin of Heinz spaghetti here!
Ok 8 for dinner. Whe my kids were little it was 8 for dinner every day - took me years to learn to cook for 2 LOL. Then at Christmas we used to invite everybody round, friends neighbours grandparents. I cooked for dozens! Blondepoet you are more than welcome
Yup you are right. Ony problem is I have started a curry for the day after tomorrow (didn't they make a film about that?) and that is definitely rice. That's Ok, that's cool, we'll have rice two days a row. No probs.
I'm not going to need it to go further. There is only me and him there and all of you of course I've made one cheap ready-prepared chicken last three days and if I use up all the not-so-good potatoes tomorrow as well there won't be enough for the day after the day after tomorrow when he is back to egg and chips! lol
OMG You're making me hungry now! That looks lovely Served with some liquid cream from a jug...oh forgot to mention you'll need to bring the cream too, The Spanish only have long-life cream which isn't the same.
That is obscene !! We don't get desserts here in China, well we do but not this kind, I haven't seen real fresh cream in nearly 5 years. Maybe the only things I miss here are desserts and good cheese. But then I have lost a lot of unwanted weight !
