It's a chilly Sunday, so today we're doing very little. Bit of napping, bit of rugby watching. And we're going to go through our freezer. It's got to that stage where it's full, and we have no idea what's in it. I really enjoy doing that sort of thing, actually. It's like an icy voyage of discovery.

I'm very much in a cooking mood this week. I don't know if it's the weather, but I want to cook all sorts of deliciousness. We've got lots of interesting and new to us foods, because we're still devoted to our philosophical path - the Quest To Eat Everything - so we have eddoes, samphire (which is amazing cooked in butter with leek and garlic, alongside salmon), sprats, globe courgettes, red chicory, and so forth. Quite excitingly (ok, excitingly for me, culinarily), Matt's recently decided that he does, after all, like rice. All the rice-based recipes that he wouldn't eat before are now fair game!

We're lucky, because one of our local supermarkets has just started doing more unusual vegetables, which makes the QTEE easier. And I did try llama the other day. It was... a little disappointing. Quite chewy and tough.
Thing is, we don't expect to love everything we try. But it's a lot of fun trying them nonetheless.


Chopped red onion, garlic, lemongrass, chilli and ginger. For...

...Chilli sauce.

Yum yum yum.

So, how does langoustine taste, anyway It looks a bit like a crayfish or lobster. Also, your chili sauce sounds yummy! And does your QTEE include things like deep-fried candy bars or fried ice cream? And have you ever watched Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern? That guy eats some weird stuff!

It tastes pretty much like shrimp or prawn, Shawna. And yes, the sauce is delicious. :)

Of course! Everything means everything! I tried a deep-fried Mars bar once. It was quite good, but there was no way I could eat a whole one.

No, we should look that up. :)
