As you will no doubt be aware, we abandoned wcoic 2014 after the group stage because life kind of got in the way and we rarely had a quorum of bodies in ThePalace(OfLove) to make seeking out recipes worthwhile.
But we’ve still been making an effort to try new things. When we were meal-planning, Joe/Frank suggested duck and pineapple red curry from the really excellent abc delicious: more please
I was somewhat doubtful because of the pineapple, but it was amazingly good, extremely simple and so very quick!
We halved the recipe and it was perfect for the 3 of us. Essentially half a bbq duck, some red curry paste, coconut cream, lemon-grass, spring onions, lime leaves, brown sugar and fish sauce in a wok.
Perfect Friday night food – this will be entering the repertoire.
Bessie was keen to expand her cooking repertoire from all-cakes/bikkies/slices-all-the-time and branched out into crackers. Don is in heaven!
crackers with zataar, thyme and fennel seeds
Really delicious! I (along with my waistline) will be delighted to follow the savoury adventure.

I cannot even convey how wonderful it was. Surely the best corned beef we’ve ever had.
And while cooking, as ever, we’re surrounded by adorable, always-hungry kitties:
