On sunday night had a few friends over for dinner & DVDs. I decided to cook for a change and make something decent rather than just ordering pizza or something equally as boring, so sunday afternoon off to the shops I went. My first stop was
Leonard’s Lenard’s Poultry as they have all sorts of fancy chicken stuff, which is good, but they were shut, so I went to the butcher nearby instead. Then I went to the supermarket to pick up a few more ingredients, and then headed home to prepare.
First/easiest to prepare was the chocolate dish (yes, that’s right – an entire dish of chocolate of various varieties). This consisted of dairy milk, caramello, and mint triple decker chocolate in the middle, then some caramel Tim Tams, then some Mint Slice biscuits around the outside – it looked (and smelled/tasted) really nice! This was for dessert.
Second to prepare was a salad. Ingredients were lettuce, carrot, a tiny tomato (we weren’t big fans, but needed colour), cucumber, cheese, and strawberries. Apparently it’s not normal to put strawberries in salads, but I thought it looked good and they tasted good too. Put all that in a bowl, mix it round a bit, and voila – salad!
For the main course I cooked chicken kievs and turkey kebabs and garlic bread. I was a bit concerned while the kievs were cooking coz they were leaking a bit, but in the end they turned out perfect.
End result – all the food was perfect, and tasted great too.
I’ve got photos of the salad and chocolate (not that great quality, and forgot to photo the rest) which I’ll post here when I find them.
I didn’t hear of any reports of food poisoning from the people that were there, so I think the synopsis is that I can cook!
