    I've been a bit lazy recently with dinners so decided to make more of an effort this evening :
    Marsala, thyme & garlic-marinated woodpigeon breast fillet, with roasted diced potatoes, asparagus and a blueberry sauce.
    Woodpigeon slightly overcooked and you could stand your knife in the sauce - but it tasted lovely.

    I love Chin Chin, Movida too. Like you say though, eating out doesn’t have to be expensive, plenty of $10-$15 options.

    Marsala and wood pigeon sounds like a good combo. not had woodpigeon for ages, a difficult one to get just right.

    Me too. I made my kid beans on toast with cheese, and I had a slice of toast and some cheese and some lager. Pretty swish.

    Thanks! It's been quite a journey from completely bed-ridden to pretty-much the fittest and leanest I've ever been, I'm so grateful my diet marries up with my ethical beliefs :)

    That sauce sounds immense, I must try that! Last night we had sausages and sweet potato mash, using almond milk, tumeric and maple syrup. Gravy with caramelised onions and mushrooms and some mixed boiled veg :)

    We had mutton chops tonight. I don't think I've tried mutton before, certainly haven't cooked it at home.
    It was very underwhelming. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing special. I thought it would have a stronger taste than lamb, but that wasn't the case.
    Not sure if it's worth bothering with again?

    Did you get the pan nice and hot and get lots of fat rendering out? Essential to break down the sinew in older meat.

    Either that or cook it low and slow for a long time, but not sure that works with chops so much.

    Oooh also a good 12-24 hours of marinating would have been a good shout too.

    Lasly, overcrowding the pan is a common mistake when it comes to cooking for the family. Cook a few at a time in batches so you get that real nice sear happening.

    Yep, griddle pan was nice and hot. It wasn't tough or anything, just not as flavoursome as I thought it would be.
    I decided not to marinate it as I wanted to get the taste of the mutton without anything added.

    Not deliberately :) But yes, well cooked on outside, pink inside.

    Maybe I will try it another time.

    Mr GL has just ordered a whole lot of gamey stuff, including hare and squirrel :( So more cooking experiments coming up.

    Squirrel! Plenty in the back garden....

    Big fan of venison. Stakes or a shank. It’s a lean meat and delicious with something sweet.

    Ever tried reindeer? It’s amazing, makes even the best fillet steak seem tough
