This is pretty much the recipe from Leanne Brown's Gooxd and Cheap, with a few tweaks according to what I had on hand.

Loosely based on a recipe from budget bytes which calls for italian pork/fennel sausage, which I cannot find.

So I accidentally tipped WAY TOO MUCH rosemary into the first stage of this recipe and the result was amazing.

This is a simplified and budget-ised version of Melissa Clark's Rosh Hashana recipe at the New York Times. (Which, by a co-incidence of menu planning, I have cooked on the first night of same. Happy New Year, anyone observing!) Australians might want to save it up for late summer / early autumn, when plums are a thing.

I don't get to make Haloumi Pilaf much anymore, because the fried Haloumi really needs two people to eat it up (it tastes weird after it's cooled) and because haloumi is really hard to find here.

Today I finally made an acceptable alternative. I also solved my 'the spinach in this dish is giving it a grainy texture, wtf I thought I'd washed the stuff' problem, *and* the goat's cheese will last with the leftovers.

This started life as roast parsnips and stuff with couscous, and that was really boring. Turns out the soup version is great, though.

I'm finding the eating-stewed-apple-chunks part weird. Whether weird enough to motivate me to puree the soup in future remains to be seen...

highlyeccentric: Dessert first - pudding in a teacup (Dessert first)
8.30pm at the end of a long weekend and I'm finally bored with being alone and crocheting. So I considered 1. making a decadent dessert or 2. going running. Obviously #1 won.

I served this as a side dish to a roast chicken, and then took the leftovers and cooked them into a risotto using the basic recipe I used here. Om nom nom.

I'm assuming this will store & keep overnight and be tasty cold. Note, the broccoli is still crunchy - if you prefer soft broccoli, perhaps steam in the microwave for a few min first.

1. Curried cauliflower with almonds and green beans.
Or: most of the spices for aloo gobi, without the aloo.

Note: other spices that might be good include mustard seed, garam marsala, anything that's supposed to be in aloo gobi, and garlic.

2. Somewhere between iced tea and punch, for hot days

Dear Internet, I made a delicious. I made it by smashing together two daal recipes and this soup recipe. I was aiming for dhal consistency, but I think I put too much water in, so I have really chunky soup.

Produced because I could not face more chilli this week, even if it WOULD be the most sensible batch food for a theatrical run week.

I have almost-turned eggs to use up. Thus last night I dined on carrot and corn fritters using this recipe, and this morning on orange pancakes.

Below, a simpified version of the women's weekly orange pancakes, also simpler and cheaper than my go-to decadent breakfast pancake.

Of late, due to poverty in both money and time, I've been eating an awful lot of tomato-based batch food. This week I hit overdose, and came up with some alternative plans. Tonight's experiment foods both have [twitter.com profile] msjackmonroe recipes somewhere in their ancestry.

Mango and Eggplant Curry

Concocted using Jack's Jardaloo Ma Murghi (which produces delightful, but tomato-based, mango variants) and this mango chicken recipe.

I originally decided against the chickpeas - the dish looked hearty enough without them! Having eaten a bowl, though, it was too fruity, and needed something more savoury to balance it out, so I added a can to the pot that was still on the stove.

And, carrying on with the theme of What to do with leftover fruit, I present:

Apple and Sultana Soda Bread

This is a pretty straightforward variation on Jack's Bramley Apple Soda Bread.

I think next time I will scatter brown sugar on the top for a caramelised crust effect.

* I seem to have purchased an EXTENDABLE BREAD TIN. I cooked this at 22cm long - i could've had any of about six settings between 20 and 30cm. It made it super easy to turn out - i turned it upside down and extended the tin away from the cake!
