Salt N Pepper Squid w/ fresh made Slaw

20151016_19080820151016_190940We were deciding what to have for dinner and Paula wanted to go out and I was for staying in and cooking. It was settled when we remembered the fresh squid sitting in the fridge. I knocked up a fresh coleslaw to go with and chilled it while  I prepped and cooked the squid. The three Squid tubes made far more than expected, I tried to give the leftovers to my favourite neighbour, Meeka the dog (see pic) but she was not home.

Hot Curry, Cold Beer, Crusty Roll

20151015_19381420151015_193823With Paula out for the night at the gun range sighting in the laser sights on her new 50 cal. pistol it is time for the third sitting of the Thursday Dinner Club. This could be described as Lazy Asian Fusion. It is a chicken and mushroom curry made with an Indian style paste and I have thrown in Ramen noodles. It was a fiery curry but luckily enough all member (myself) like a hot one. Just to add to the mix I had a nice cold American beer and an excellent crusty  French roll.

Race Day Rations

20151011_115706Nothing much better to do than sit around watching the Bathurst 1000 motor race on TV but still need to refuel ourselves. Last night I made a duck curry and had left overs so I used the duck breast to make duck samosa, spring roll and duck wontons. Ten minutes prep 5 mins to cook and a couple of minutes for a chilli and blood orange dipping sauce, barely missed a pit stop.20151011_114207
