Bolog blog test

Having a go at blogging while I cook. It might be going horribly wrong. The blogging, I mean. The pasta sauce tastes nice.

Mince around midnight

Bolognese on toast. The perfect, late-night, post-Push The Button supper. I made it following the Jamie Oliver recipe but tweaked it a bit. Soz Jamie.
In other news: I'm determined to get the rest of the Christmas photos up BEFORE THE END OF JANUARY. There are only five more sets to go...

The twelve eats of Christmas: 6

Back in Wales. Straight off the train, to the Beefeater. Brains, paté and salmon. We're at the halfway mark! Phew.

The twelve eats of Christmas: 4


A Boxing Day lunch treat: cold ham and turkey, loads of pickles and bubble and squeak, made from the veg leftover from Christmas Day.

Manhattan Pizza Odyssey

A $5.50 "special slice" from Ray's Pizza - pepperoni and chicken escalope

$1.50 pepperoni slice from 2 Bros Pizza in Hell's Kitchen.

The practical difference between the two pizzas - apart from the chicken - is that the $1.50 slice is best enjoyed by dragging the toppings and cheese off with your teeth, and throwing the base over your shoulder.

Meanwhile, this pizza came from The Irish Pub on 7th Avenue.

You might think that there's something wrong with this picture. You're right. It's a picture of a pizza with large florets of broccoli planted into it.

Brisket For A Biscuit

Half of a brisket sandwich from the Stage Deli. A tiny slice of bread is perched rakishly on the fist of meat, and it's all set off beautifully by a large dry gherkin. Here it is again, from a more daunting angle.

Breakfast The Fey Way

A breakfast sandwich from the Stage Deli in Manhattan. Fried sausage, fried egg, extremely fried streaky bacon, all served between two thick slices of very fried bread. The only thing that isn't fried is the cheese, but to their credit, they did melt it slightly to bring out its own natural oils.

This sandwich has a name: it is called the Tina Fey.
