My first attempt at a bulgar wheat pilaf ... it cooks a lot faster and easier than I was expecting. In fact, it'll probably replace quinoa in my cupboard, since the flavor is cleaner, doesnt need rinsing, and it cooks faster. Cheaper too.

Recipe:

2-3 tbsp sweet butter
1 jalapeno, cored and diced fine
1/2 cup Minced Scallions
1 pint Bulgar Wheat (I think mine was medium coarse)
--------
3 1/2 cups Half Strength Chicken or Vegetable stock, hot
--------
1/2 fl oz lemon juice
1/2 fl oz honey

Directions:
* Mix together the lemon-honey dressing in a small ramekin and set aside.
* In 3 qt pot, sweat Jalapeno in butter over med heat until al dente, add scallions and saute 30 sec until fragrant.
* Raise heat to high and add bulgar wheat (dry), and stir until all butter absorbed and pilaf is fragrant (2 mins).
* Add hot stock, bring to boil, lower heat to medium, simmer 5 mins, stirring occasionally, until liquid absorbed and craters form.
* Cover, remove from heat, let stand 5 mins.
* Upend into a large (3-5L) work bowl, sprinkle with the honey-lemon dressing, and fluff (to shed steam, stop cooking, and separate all the grains. Stir periodically until no longer steamy.
* Serve lukewarm, with additional herbs and/or oil to taste.

Had a random thought at work about whether it was possible to bake an egg inside of a bread roll. First experiment today. Still need some work on timings, but in principal, not bad.

That which may be thought right and found convenient in one age, may be thought wrong and found inconvenient in another. In such cases, who is to decide, the living, or the dead? -Thomas Paine

Hot dogs taken to the next level.

Home made rolls, home made sausages (friend keeps pigs on his smallholding, and produces all sorts of goodies when they're slaughtered), home made saurkraut, home grown onions, home pickled jalapenos.

Think the only things in them that were shop bought was the mustard and ketchup.

Last night I made the Burritos of Doom again, only it was more like Burritomageddon. Honestly, I don't understand how I can eat that stuff and not die, or at least develop an ulcer the size of an octopus.

Brandy.

Take one glass
Add some brandy
Drink, and try to forget that landing at Glasgow Airport.

"Please be careful opening the overhead lockers, as the contents may have shifted during the flight". No, they did not shift during the flight, they shifted during the first eight seconds or so of not-flight. Which the brandy is helping me to forget.

If you're sitting in a window seat and you all-of-a-sudden see the centre line of the runway out of your window in the middle of reverse thrust, things are very close to going very badly wrong. I'm not sure how many other people on the flight noticed little details like that, but I did.

Don't try to eat money, Nef Yoo. Coins are notoriously filthy; and banknotes are equally manky, but with added traces of cocaine.

I am currently eating whatever I can find in the kitchen after I left my revolting offspring in charge of the house for two weeks. Oh, he can buy wine and pizzas and ready-cooked chicken, but he can't buy bread or anything that might pass as a vegetable? Bloody kids.

Joong/Zoonzi or sticky rice wrapped up in bamboo leaves . I made them from a recipe on Youtube , it was my first try . The first batch was a mess ; half burst open and all were misshaped by they tasted almost on the mark by the third and last try . I can now make ( after many hours and much cursing ) a pretty tetrahedral specimen that almost tastes like ones aunty made !
