As I said in my last post, this weeks Saturday dinner will be cod with Mediterranean roast vegetables and a tomato relish. This one is, pretty much, going to be my own concoction, with a few sneak peeks at recipes so, hopefully, it won’t go too far wrong. I made a batch of the relish yesterday and it tasted pretty good even if I do say so myself.
While I was browsing for other ideas I came across a recipe for Spaghetti Alla Carbonara by Gino D’Acampo; so I decided to start the weekend with that for Friday’s dinner. I followed his recipe; just changing the amounts to suit just the two of us and, being British, changing the Pancetta for unsmoked streaky bacon. Gino that was very easy to follow and, despite the ingredient change, it has to be the best carbonara we have ever eaten. Thank You.
On Sunday we are switching over to Hawaii for a slow cooked Hawaiian pork loin in pineapple source on a bed of basmati rice. This will be the first time using a slow cooker for me but it looks too good to not try it.
