OK – it is coming up fast – and I’ve been remiss – here is the current list of ingredients:

Cream of rice, cornish hens, honey, something derived from a goat (meat, milk, cheese, yoghurt, butter, etc), rocket (arugula), cashews, macadamia nuts, pomegranate molasses, hot bean paste, chestnuts, grits, chicken thighs, ham, kale, dried beans, miso, simple syrup, buffalo (bison), veal scallopine, limes, aphrodesiacs, chocolate, wattleseed (yay! I have some thanks to the estimable Noodle Cook who sent some in his Australian spice care package), pears, lemons, pomegranates, flowers, cinnamon, gambas (prawns I believe – no use checking on Google – it gives you millions of software development results) and verjuice.

Wow! we are getting really creative here! I like the idea of the goat and aphrodesiac possibilities!

I’ll run the rules and past results up in a subsequent posting and I’ll also pass on recent cooking exploits (failure at homemade crumpets, success with lemon myrtle spice from the Noodle Cook, great fried rice, and lots that I have forgotten because I didn’t write about it….)
