    Does anyone else here fancy themselves as a bit of a chef? I love spending time in the kitchen and being "between jobs" as I am at the moment I took time yesterday to tidy up the kitchen and make some bread (and I didn't cheat and use a bread maker either). I've just polished off the last of the rolls I made and they were awesome!

    I might get the pasta machine out tomorrow and make a lasagne. I've not done that for a while. Somehow I can see myself putting on a lot of weight in the next week...

    On a whim, I bought some lamb's hearts today. Time to dig out the River Cottage Meat Book for some ideas!

    couple of suggestions.......

    Placenta Cocktail:
    1/4 cup raw placenta
    8oz V-8 juice
    2 ice cubes
    1/2 cup carrot.
    Blend at high speed for 10 seconds


    Placenta Lasagne:
    Use your favorite Lasagne recipe and substitute this mixture for one layer of cheese. In 2 tbl. olive oil, quickly saute meat of 3/4 placenta, ground or minced; plus 2 sliced cloves of garlic, 1/2 tsp. oregano, 1/2 diced onion & 2 tbl. tomato paste, or 1 whole tomato.
    ewwwwwwwwwwwwww.................. :doctor:

    Ummmm good on your ScoobyA4!!! ( I think!)

    I'm learning how to burn lots of things since becoming single again, but I have also found that having a pub that serves decent food a minutes walk from my front door a great advantage.

    Well after thinking about it all day at work today I did the heart tonight and must say that it was absolutely wonderful. I trimmed the fat and sinews, then sliced the heart into small strips and quickly fried them with some finely chopped onion, garlic and a cheeky few bits of bacon. Onto a warm plate and into the oven while I whacked some sliced mushrooms and a touch more onion into the same pan with a dash of red wine just to deglaze the pan and make a little sauce. Meat out of oven, on to plate with rice and sauce.

    I was really surprised how delicate a flavour it had; it was identifiable as lamb but different from, say, a lamb chop. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would heartily recommend (ho ho) everyone to give it a bash.
