Today we followed the choices from the week before, and we cooked the following;
For starter, we had swede and parsnip soup,
followed by a main course of chilli con carne with rice.
Finally, for desert we cooked and ate upside down pineapple cake with custard.
The soup proved to be very popular, as did the pineapple upside down cake which some members hadn’t had before, others last having it as a desert in school!
Today we cooked some oriental style food, quite Chinese based…
For starter, we had vegetable spring rolls which had beansprouts, chilli, red pepper and onion inside wrapped in filo pastry.
Our main course was a chicken and cashew nut stir-fry with vegetables and rice.
To finish, we had ‘apple snow’ which is egg white whisked with sugar, served with blueberries and strawberries.
With the main course one of the members would like to cook lamb with mint instead of chicken with cashew nut stir-fry.
One of the members really liked the apple snow because it tasted nice, most of the members would like to cook apple snow again.
