|"Perfect" cullen skink, according to The Guardian! Don't get any skinkier.|
|Easiest. Theme. Ever.|
Best to move on to Cookbook #11 before I get confused and just start transcribing "To a Haggis." The Essential Appetizers Cookbook (Whitecap Books, 1999). Provenance: Mom. Previous recipes on this blog: none. If I was amused by the Britishness of Good Food Fast, I was straight delighted by the Australianhood of this sucker. The presence of "Mini Corn Dogs" in the "Tex-Mex" section, for example, is fascinating. Also the fact that the recipe includes six instances of the word "frankfurt." Skewer those frankfurts for an authentic Tex-Mex experience! I also enjoy that nachos are, I absolutely swear to you, called "Spicy Tortilla Triangles."
But I shouldn't make fun, partly because I'm the one who's been walking around calling cranachan "gromack" like a fool, A FOOL, and partly because there are really a lot of nice-looking recipes in here. I personally would eat the hell out of some spicy tortilla triangles. But for book club on Saturday I decided to go slightly more upscale, selecting Crostini with Pepper (or Capsicum if you are Australian and confused by the word Pepper) Roulade. I thought a roulade sounded 1) kinda fancy and 2) like something I would probably botch and I know that's secretly why you all come here.
|You're in luck!|
Joke's on you though, schadenfreudists, as roasted peppers on toast taste perfectly good even if they aren't in nice froufy little circles.
|I'm only ever aiming for an appearance of "more or less intentional."|
|Sometimes I am using the eggs to hide mistakes. NOW YOU KNOW.|
Verdict: lots of appetizers. I like appetizers. I am childishly amused by the language quirks of other English-speaking nations. Keeper!
Hey Anna, isn't it super nice of Cali to be reading you a story?
Well, don't take it personally, Cali. She was in kind of a mood after a recent bout of engineering failure.
