Sunday's Selection 2/2/14

On my 5th attempt I think I have finally mastered a basic white loaf of bread! So I had lovely still-warm bread to soak up the juices from a Greek-inspired stew of lamb, new potatoes, lemon and garlic with feta and parsley:

Steak night for my daughter. She could eat it every night. I try to hold her off at least to once every couple of weeks.

Good looking bread Katy! Now to achieve that result each time. For me, I've found that both bread and pastry crust are very dependent on the weather.

*********************

I have to use the shrimp I refrigerator-defrosted on Friday, so it looks like it will be stir-fry shrimp and broccoli. Need to defrost and cook up a chicken breast for the glass noodle soup. I could make it vegetarian, but a little chicken makes it just that much better.

Interesting point CG! Since I started my experiment in December it has rained solidly (Britain is basically drowning at the moment). So the humidity has been pretty high. If we ever get a dry spell my bread may take a downturn!

Shrimp stir fry - sounds yum!

Congrats Katy! You're a better woman than I. In all my many many years of cooking, most would find it hard to believe I never once have attempted to make a loaf of bread. I may have taken my "fear of failure" a little too far?
That lamb stew is really talking my language though!

We're having oven barbeque pork ribs tonight with my special to die for Cole Slaw and garlic toast.
