New things you've cooked during lockdown

I made some banana cornbread yesterday and some homemade tortilla chips. I found an unopened bag of maize meal at the back of the cupboard. Probably out of date but tasted lovely 😎
 
Wife (no) made some banana muffins the other day after no-one would eat the black speckly bananas left in the bowl.
We had our first bbq of the summer last night (just the 4 of us before anyone starts) and I did some beautiful lamb chops
Having roast chicken at some point this week so I'll make my usual veg soup with the leftovers
Think it's steak or meatballs tonight, depends who loses the coin toss for cooking duties.

Going to do some meals in my pressure cooker this week too. Try and alleviate the boredom
 
Nettle soup
Good man. Full of nutrients.

I've gave that a miss and making shepards pie today.
Pot Noodle
Should have wet with the nettles marra
beer bread (dampers) - easy and lovely. luckily had everything in the cupboard already (missed the chives off) . they've just come out the oven there.

self Raising Flour, Salt, Parmesan, Spring Onion, Chives, Caster Sugar, Beer 375 millilitre

Classic Beer Damper - Stay at Home Mum
Sounds interesting. Are they like scones?

Been trying to make some alternative healthy breakfasts instead of the sticking to the usual fruit and yoghurt each day....
Banana Oatmeal pancakes Healthy Banana Oatmeal Pancakes (made right in the blender!)
Creamy mushrooms on toast Creamy mustard mushrooms on toast with a glass of juice
Peanut butter overnight oats https://minimalistbaker.com/peanut-butter-overnight-oats/

For dinner/lunch have tried a few different things lately.....
Cajun Chicken Fried Rice
Maroccan Scrammbed eggs
Using some left over baby potatoes made something like a spanish omelette.
Bacon & Egg Pie
Curry Marinated Steak (& chips)

Wfe's loving it at the moment as she has something to look forward to coming in from work, she managing to come home for lunch at the moment, she's admitted that she doesn't know what will hit when I get back to work as she is getting used to it :lol:

Tried a few Thai recipes - fishcakes, salt and chilli prawns and an asian beef salad.

They were ok but for the amount of fannying on and the amount of fresh ingredients required they weren't worth it.

Still, kept me busy for a couple of hours.

Things must be really bad

So long as you don’t make those oatmeal cupcakes again 🤢 .... even the birds didn’t go near them!
