Nice photo Edo and a tasty healthy meal too.

Allan, the salmon was bought at M&S and labelled Wild Pacific salmon not Scottish farmed. Hmm. Wild has more mercury than farmed but farmed can have other problems and has less taste.

 

(I had two glasses of Pinot Noir since I drink light red wine with game fish. White is fine too but a decent white is more expensive.)

Zoomed today (search term: 'overcooked food'), but no sale of this image yet. Can't think why...

Not zoomed, but viewed with the same search term. Apparently yours was the only that got zoomed.

It may be related to the search for reheated food. Maybe even with taste food unhappy. No search for %burn%food% on the same day.

Have there always been this many searches for %food%? 99 pages @100 for the rolling year!

So you can say, you ate the Koolade rather than drank it, as the old saying goes! 😀

I most certainly can, Michael!

Well, here’s the Chocolate Guinness Cake I made yesterday. You can’t taste the Guinness in it, I think it’s more there to give it the dark colour. It tastes fantastic though, with or without the soft cheese topping.

That looks lush, can't wait to see your next bake😄 I'm in the process of doing a plaited loaf for a neighbour, with any luck I'll be able to use available light😂

Scrumptious. Not a good idea to come to this thread before lunch.

Thank you quality control has seen most of it gone already with icecream....

This is the problem, isn't it? I bake a 900g loaf, the sort of size that should last a week, and we scoff a third of it in 15 minutes:lol:

I made a plaited loaf yesterday for a neighbour, I wing it with the plaiting but it turns out looking ok, still not happy with my food photography though - I'll keep trying ha ha, another plaited loaf for another neighbour tomorrow or Saturday 😁

The solution is to bake a massive one, or just do 2. They still don't last, shopping bill down electricity bill up from the oven, swings and roundabouts etc .🙂

I make a large cake, slice it up and freeze most of it. Then just take out a few slices at a time.

Self control......😇

I don't know those words when it comes to cake 😁

 

As for freezing it, I think I will need a lock on the freezer, once I know it's in there........the rest as they say is history🙃

 

I've decided to make another Christmas cake but ok I will call it an Easter cake just the same recipe, just been out and bought another bottle of brandy😄

The cake mixture requires marinating in brandy for at least a week and then more gets added every few days 😄

 

More just prior to baking and then more on a weekly basis until it gets iced😄 I was told it was pretty good😁

My dinner on Saturday.  Roasted veggies.  Put them on seasoned Israeli couscous.

 

Food Sheet pan roasted vegetables zucchini onions cherry tomatoes Stock Photo

That is making me hungry ! I have similar tonight but with chicken and red pesto and veggies...

 

My plaited loaf is in QC🙏

 

My fruit for the Christmas/Easter cake is quietly marinating in a bowl on top of the kitchen cabinet, being checked and tested every few days, no doubt will have to top the fruit and brandy up before making the actual cake😄

 

Today am debating whether to make a Chocolate and black bean torte and/or wash the car😄
