    Most dishes chilli for us too - but I thought that a stew doesn't usually have those, well not a British one anyway. Sure they wouldn't harm though. I just worry sometimes that everything I cook has onions, garlic and chilli and am I just making everything taste the same? I like those tastes of course but I don't want to get too repetitive.

    leftover homemade tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwich. as kids, we'd have tomato soup in the winter after we'd finish shoveling snow from the driveway and sidewalk, it's still weird for me to eat it on just a normal day. it still maintains that "reward for solving snow" connection.

    New You, New Stew.
    Dried apricots are a vital part of a lamb tagine - guess you wouldn't be interested in the lamb but I'm sure you could do a similar dish bashed on butternut squash or something.

    However I'm 100% with you when it comes to raisins and sultanas in savoury food. Just no. Not ever. Vile.

    Last night was pasta, nothing too exciting.

    This evening we had something I invented years ago, in my student days: jalfrezi cottage pie. Really nice, great to eat on a cold day in front of the fire.

    Cottage pie cept the beef is cooked in jalfrezi sauce. Out of a jar is fine, you don't gotta be Madhur Jaffrey about it.

    Shepherd's pie is with lamb though, cottage pie is with beef.

    I think that's right, certainly shepherd's pie is with lamb. Is there a pork version called Swineherd's pie or something?

    Also I'm eating some Portuguese ckes... Leo do you know what they might be called, they are tasty dough bites with a softer centre flavoured with honey and nuts and perhaps orange (I think).

    hmm, not familiar with those. fwiw, the Portuguese neighborhood where I grew up in the states has some slightly different foods compared to what we found in Lisbon. the vast majority of people in my old neighborhood have family roots in the Azores, not the mainland.

    also, we used the term Shepard's pie to cover any sort of meat, which obviously is incorrect.

    Ok turns out they are called broa castelar - apparently they are made out of sweet potato and are mainly a Christmas thing which explains why we just saw em appear today. If you do an image search you will find them.
    Yeah love the custard things... especially with a bit of cinnamon.
