I have 3 kilos of green tomatoes and 1 kilo of onions macerating with a good handful of salt, waiting to be cooked into Green Tomato Pickles. I have never made this before, in fact i have never made any kind of pickles or jam. There is always a first time for everything. I will post photos of how it turns out.
Last night I cooked corned beef for the first time ever. I followed the instructions, made a lovely mustard sauce and served it with steam potatoes and asparagus. It was awful!! I never really liked corned beef anyway, but thought I should branch out with the family meals a bit. It wasn't a winner for anyone in the family and will join my increasing list of bad meals. Nothing has topped the dusty meatballs served with
porridge cous cous that started the "Mums most forgettable meals list". I think I will just go back to pasta and curries! While these type of meals are traditional in their own places of origin - they are not the types of food I grew up eating. I wonder what sort of foods my children will be cooking when they are older. Will they consider my type of cooking (the successful meals!!) as old fashioned?
