In the last months of my pregnancy Kev did the majority of the cooking since i had no energy or interest in doing it myself. I've started to spend more time in the kitchen this past week, not just to wash the endless amount of dishes or to clean out the disgusting oven (oh yes i did!) and cupboards but to cook and bake too.
Last Thursday night i watched Jamie Oliver's program on tv and drooled over his onion soup. Luckily i had everything needed to make it myself (except sage) so yesterday afternoon i made up a big pot. I also made some bagels for the very first time. I made the dough and shaped them yesterday then boiled and baked them this morning. It's a long process but so worth it, they turned out a little flat but they taste delicious and chewy. I'm thinking a little extra yeast in the next batch may plump them up a little.
Oh and did i tell you i have a 'thing' for Gordon Ramsay at the moment? We love watching Kitchen Nightmare's on tv and have recently finished watching the first series of 'The F Word' and loved it! Now we're hanging out to watch the second series but it's not available on dvd here yet :( I also want to read his biography, anyone have it and want to do a swap?
