You've done it again Harry. Looks terrific and the steak is done just the way I like it.

I'm envious of your cress. I used to buy it that way in Denmark. I've never seen it here.

thanks tax,much appreciated!!gotta foolproof(harryproof!)method for steaks.works every time no matter how thick or thin the steak is or what cut it is.think it was a marco pierre white tip.get your pan really hot.whack in your steak for a couple of mins to seal,turn & when blood starts to appear on the sealed side take the steak out of the pan & rest on a warm plate(the steak not you!!) for as long as the steak was in the pan.i cooked that steak for 4 mins total.the skewers took 2 mins each side to cook...bingo..works every time!
the cress IS fab & only costs 50 pence/about 35cents? a punnet.i also grow it like i did when i was a kid...piece of wet kitchen towel or flannel,sprinkle with mustard & cress seeds,stick it on a window sill for a few days...hey presto you've got your mustard & cress!love it in egg mayo sandwiches too

Then added some chicken stock, potato chunks, frozen sweetcorn and a little thyme and simmered gently til the potato chunks were cooked through. After that I added the crab chunks to warm through, some heavy cream and a good grinding of pepper. (And I threw some chopped parsley on top to make it look pretty.)

I imagine the chowder police are on my tail even as we speak!
That recipe sounds like a chowder to this New Englander. You used cream and potatoes for the thickening. What makes it a chowder is that your liquid consists mostly of cream or milk. It is the type of liquid that determines whether it is chowder or soup.

Hamburguesa Colombiana by powerplantop, on Flickr

A Hamburger is usually one of my least favorite things, but I watched the video of that hamburger being made and I am definately going to make it soon. Not only did he put all three sauces on it, but he also topped it with some really yummy looking coleslaw that contained so many carrots it looked orange, and as a final topping, he used finely crushed potato chips. I don't know where I will get the columbian cheese he showed, but that's the least of my worries. The cole slaw and sauces make the burger IMO.

Chowder is named for the type of pot it was traditionally cooked in on fishing boats - chaudiere or cauldron.
