What's Cooking

The last time we cooked steak and kidney we did it in the oven for too long and with the heat turned up too high. The stupid thing is I could smell it burning but refused to believe my nose. This can't be happening, therefore it isn't. 

This time we cooked it in the slow cooker- which uses about as much power as a light bulb and would take days to burn anything. 

Steak and kidney- with the emphasis on the kidney- was one of the things I most missed when I was a vegetarian. Top of the list was bacon, but steak and kidney came in at number two. Number three was pork crackling.

I've taken to eating bacon for lunch. Either I fry it  with eggs and tomatoes or I cut it up small, fry it to a crisp and scatter it over pasta.
