Bacon and cheddar bread

Recipe adapted from Bake by Rachel Allen, retrieved from http://eatlittlebird.com/2012/05/01/rustic-bacon-cheddar-bread/

Roasted chicken thigh

Season chicken thigh(s) with salt, pepper and your desired herbs (optional). Arrange onto a baking sheet and lightly drizzle with olive oil. Bake chicken in a 200 deg C oven for 30-45 mins or until skin is nicely brown and crisp (time depends on how much chicken is loaded into the oven). Remove from oven and let it cool a little. Arrange on a bed of coriander/parsley on the serving plate.

Avocado and tomato salad

Prepare ingredients in the following ratio — 1 large tomato : 1 ripe avocado : a small handful coriander/parsley leaves : a smaller handful of mint leaves : juice from half a lemon : 1 tablespoon olive oil : 2 people

Peel and de-seed tomatoes and cut into 2 cm chunks. Cut flesh of avocadoes into similar sized chunks. In a mixing bowl, toss all ingredients (excluding humans) and season with salt and pepper. Place a ring mould on the serving plate and spoon salad into it. Pack down slightly and remove mould.

Bacon & Asparagus Pasta

happy vegetables

Speaking of Jamie Oliver in my last post, don’t we all get jealous that he has a backyard full of plump and fresh produce?

Food stuff like vegetables are never out of supply. Ok, I know its TV. But,  I’m still jealous.

zzz made this sometime 2 weeks (or was it more? – i’m such a bad blogger, zzz has to remind me to blog everytime he cooked)

I love love love the baked carrots and beetroots. such a happy sight to see the colors all popping out.

And the pasta. Bacon. enough said.
