Burger with Pulled Pork & Chipotle Slaw

Leftovers time!

Well we had another leaver at work today. Sarah, who I have worked with for about seven years has gone. Not completely unexpected but quicker than I thought and without time to say a work goodbye. A meet up for cocktails is on the cards…

We decided to have the remainder of the pulled pork with a shop bought beefburger and the remaining coleslaw.

It was definitely a case of getting…

Pulled Pork Brioche Burgers with Chipotle Red Cabbage Slaw

Pulled Pork Brioche Burgers

I am quite proud of myself. I almost gave up on these brioche buns, thinking that I’d made a hash of them. These have been staring at me from a copy of BBC Good Food for weeks. I just made a different coleslaw and couldn’t be bothered with the home made barbecue sauce.

Mix 250ml of warm water, 2tsp of dried yeast, 3tbsp of warm milk and 2tbsp of golden caster sugar. Leave it for 5 minutes to…

Pasta, Courgette & Mozzarella

I’ve actually made this one before and only recently but it’s that good we wanted it again.

Preheat the oven to 180ºc (fan).

I fried some shallots as in the taco recipe last night but not as…

Pubs, Spas & Smoked Mackerel Tacos

I went out with family (females only) tonight as I haven’t seen my Nan in ages. We went to Marr Lodge which has recently been done out, although I haven’t been there in years.

It was nice to catch up, we had a sharing platter for starters along with bubble and squeak and I had the venison steak for main.

Some of us who went for dinner were up nice and early for an Elevenses spa break at Aqua Sana…

Vietnamese Rice Salad

Our second Vietnamese style dish this week and just as tasty.

The recipe comes from a Good Housekeeping cook book we picked up on the cheap a couple of years ago called Healthy Family Recipes. It’s been well used.

Cook some basmati wild rice. When it’s done, pop it out in a thin layer on some foil and leave to cool.

Put some muscovado sugar in a small pan with a little water, let the sugar…

RosemaryPork & Rostis

Quick, cheap, easy and made with what we already had in.

Preheat the oven to 190ºc (fan).

Grate a couple of potatoes then squeeze out the excess water through a clean tea towel. Season with black pepper then, if you can, ‘build’ the rosti by pressing down into a chefs ring. Cook for a couple of minutes each side then transfer to a baking tray to finish off in the oven.

Pop a little rosemary oil…
