Yep, Robbie Williams, we love his music
58 is no age at all. You must miss him very much. *hugs* My mum died prematurely too (69), but luckily she made her long-wanted trip to Australia. (she was diagnosed with cancer a few months after she got back).

Anyway! Enough of this dismal, non-food related stuff!

I have pork shoulder to "rub" and corn to discuss!

We are having pork belly tomorrow night, first time we have had it

We are going to cook it like Maggie Beer does, the crackling is going to be amazing

Take the stem out of the mushroom, drizzle some olive oil and season with a bit of s&p, add whatever you want with lots of cheese and top with some breadcrumbs. Bake for about 25 minutes, and let sit for another 5. Eat it on a bun with whatever else you want to put in there. It was very good. And messy...

Chopped walnuts or pine nuts. Or bits of lovely smoked bacon. Anything with a bit of texture and crunch! Absolutely delicious.

Since Stirling is off GM'ing a game, I had steak. Stirling isn't big on "slab-o-beef". I love it.

I had a spencer steak, also known as ribeye, with fried onions and I nuked some frozen corn - all that talk of corn made me crave some. I made a quick sauce by deglazing the pan with red wine and reducing, then added some butter and cream. I would have sauteed some mushrooms, but they were growing fur .

That sounds like a nice impromptu sauce.

It is and it gets all that yummy fond off the pan. It also makes the pan easier to wash.
