CW now tells us of some research from Yale Uni's School of Medicine.

The Overall Nutritional Quality Index - known commercially as the NuVal system gives a persect 100% to broccoli .. blueberries// green beans and okra.

Meats score low and with a can of peaches being of higher nutritional value than lean chicken breast :? :?

Fish? Salmon scores higher than lobster (use monkfish - similar meaty texture .. scores higher per the list on

www.nuval.com

But okra.. :scratchchin:


OK .. get

10 oz monkfish (cut it into cubes)

9 oz okra

2 tbsp olive oil


1 sliced onion

1 crushed garlic clove

one small sliced ginger root

quarter pint fish stokc OR coconut milk

2 tbsp Masala



MARINADE

3 tbsp lemon juice
grated lemon rind
quarter teaspoon aniseed
slat/black pepper to tastes


Garnish .. lemon wedges/coriander

OK .. make the marinade first. Bung everything into a bowl.. mix it well .. then put the monkfish in to marinate for an hour or so.


brink a saucepan of water to boil. Cook the okra for 5 minutes.

Drain.. slice the okra to half inch slices

Heat the oil in a wok. Add the onion and fry till golden brown. Add the ginger and garlic .. fry for a minute. Add the fish with the marinade and stir fry for 2-3 minutes or so.

Stir in the okra.. the coconut milk or the fish stokc (whichever preferred :wink:) Let it all simmer for 10 minutes.

Serve with the lemon or lime wedges and coriander. And garlic bread

:cloud 9:

ENJOY :bighand:

Hailed as the wonder food of the week in all the tabloids.. the PLUM.


I like plums...especially when my wife puts them (pitted/stoned) in the centre of a doughnut :yum:


Another foreign version is to wrap the plum in a potoato cake dough and deep fry in the same way as a doughnut... in olive or vegetable oil and well drained.

But I have another recipe which most of us mere men can handle - 20 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake in the oven.


You need

5 oz butter (plus some to grease the baking tin :wink:)

10 oz self-raising flour (plus some to roll out/dust)

2 oz caster sugar

grated zest of an orange (and its juice - so after you grate the peel - stick the orange in a jug and hit that turbo-charged blender. (I liken my hand held blender to me Black n decker drills - it has various speeds :lol:)

about quarter pint milk


About 1lb or more plums - cut into quarters with stones removed (obviously :roll:)

2 oz muscovado sugar

teaspoon cinammon

icing sugar to dust..

cream or craime fraiche to serve.


OK.. preheat the oven to 200 C /400 F or Gas mark 6. Lightly grease a 9.13 incch swiss roll tin or similar.

1. Cut the butter (4 0z)into pieces . place in bowl. Sift the flour into the bowl and rub the butter into the flou until in#t looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in the caster sugar and the orange zest.

Pour in most of the milk and mix with a flaat knife to form a dough.

2. Form into a ball with your hands. Caress it gently. :wink:

Roll out on a floured surfaceto roughly the same shape as the tin. Gently place the dough in the tin


3. Scatter the plums on top and dot the remaining butter over it all. Mix the muscovado sugar and the cinammom - sprinkle over the plums. Pour the orange juice over the top.

4. bake for 20 mins till golden brown and bubbly jiucy plums


5. remove for oven. Dust with icing sugar. Cut into squares (about 12).

6. Serve with cream

Enjoy! :bighand: :drink2:

OK grab that tub of leftover popcorn :popcorn: from "Friday night at the movies".

Raid the dried hrbs/seasonal powders shelf in the larder for curry powder (one teaspoon) - likewise the ground paprika .. ginger .. marjoram. Grab the bottle of olive oil.

pit the spices in a large bowl and pour on r3 tablespoons of olive oil.

Stir this and mix and blend it well.

Add the popcorn (you need about 8oz or so)

Mix it all well.

Then lounge in front of the telly .

Enjoy! :bighand:


Or what if you had the tortilal chips instead (and the folk behind me did .. and it was a crunchier performance than the "love scene" :roll:)

Anyway .. take the leftovers home. (you need about 10 oz of these chips so I would suggest - eat the porcorn or buy an ice cream tub as not so noisy :popcorn:)

Grab the jar of salsa which wife (mine) bought at supermarket and forgot about... an ounce of chillies.. 4 oz grated cheese and bunch of chives (ither from garden or bought from supermarket - from reduced counter if poss)

Place the chips in a baking tray or shallow baking dish. Distribute the salsa ovr them, Slice the chillis and sprinkle evenly over the chips.

Sprinkle the grated cheese (I find cheddar or gouda work well)

Bake o#r grill til the cheese melts

Sprinkle the chopped chives over the top.. Serve and eat in front of the telly :bighand:

You can also use up leg#ft over bolognese sauce.. chillli con carne or avocado - and CW tells me avocado is a cyclist's super food and that cyclists on the Tour de France are encouraged by their teams to eat an avocado every two days.

Enjoy :bighand:

Ok .. so I usually play "internet" in morning. :lol: over coffee und BRIOCHES...

Which I bake myself und they are easy so all the mere males on here can do it. I dare say that even my critics may even find it fun - they can pretend they are thumping me when they do the kneading bit too :hehe:


Anyway for Brioches the quicky working Mama way (My Mama's recipe :wink: My version ist a bit richer und take a bit longer on the standing preparation bit)

10 oz flour (strong white bread variety)
7g pack easy blend dried yeast
3 medium eggs
2 0z caster sugar
2 fl oz warm milk
4 oz butter

pinch salt.


12 choc blocks - or choccy paste or fave jam

I give recipe for batch of 12. I normally make a lot more as there a lot of folk in this household. I do actually do some work here. :wink:

Sift the flour/salt in bowl Add the sugar/yeast. Stir well. I let it stand for 5 minutes whilst I read the internet thread :lol:

Make well in middle. Pour in the milk/beaten eggs. Mix well to a dough .. elastic to feel.

Put onto floured board und knead it for five minutes. (Let it stand. Read the "wind up merchant on the internet" ... then .. go back to the dough und give it a good thumping. :lol: or a gentle kneading dependent on what you just read .. ::hehe:

Smear some butter on the dough. Knead it in, Coontinue doing this until yoou use up all the butter. Your dough should look a bit shiny und have little bubbles showing on it. It lovely fun messy stuff. Your kids should just LOVE helping out on this one. :wink: Dough should feel greasy elastic.


Cover with a towel (or wrap over with cling flim if making the night before as I usually do :wink:


Then in the morning when you get up - after first cup of coffee or tea or water with a lemon slice whatever your first tipple - knead your dough again fairly gentle briskish. (I usually pretend it the Mad Doc at this point... :wink:)

Break your dough into 12 portions. Shape to form circles. Flatten them a little. Place your chosen filling in the centre. Gently wrap the dough over this. Seal it with a little egg. Place on baking tray or in bun tin - joint size downwards.

Bake in oven till golden brown for about 15-20 minutes on 200C/400F/Gas 6.

Let it cool on cake wire. Be careful as the choc/jam will be very - very hot und that need to cool.

Enjoy. :bighand: It makes a rather nice/relaxing breakfast. You find you can slot it around typing on here or on there.. :hehe:

Cooking give me great pleasure. I finding it rather therapeutic at the moment. :wink:

I will put up my other recipe later. Got to wave off the children und Mad Doc on the school run which I normally do und get back to some routine housework und stuff which include just resting und some gentle exercise too.. (I got to get my figure back into shape here after the "twin ordeal." :wink:)

Brioches eh? Yum.


Well Easter may have been and gone .. but CW this week tells me that my gorging on Creme Eggs did not do me any harm. Only 170 calories per egg :lol: I burn off each one at just 14 mins of riding at 15 mph :lol: (Bum.. I will have to ride some MILES all the same. :lol:)

How many did you eat in 5 minutes though. CW tells me the record is 19 eggs - held by a \mr Rick Barker :bow: 200 million eggs are sold each year and they've been around since 1971, I know. I've been eating them since then :lol: (I wa a lad at school when they came out.. :hehe:

Meanwhile C+ tells me to take Ginseng tablets as they contain B1 /B2 /B6 and B12 and folic acid. I suggest Wildy tries these given the situation she's in :wink:

It's funny you say that, I've just started taking them myself. They're not cheap here but I was told to try them. You can buy quite a lot of herbal stuff here, and "real" fresh fruit.

Couple of issues back.. we were back to oily fish and spices.

OK .. so I visited the old Chinese supermarket .. and bought "five spice powder" which seems to be a mix of star anise. cinnamon. cloves.. fennel and szechuan peppercorns.

OK . you need 2 teaspoons of this stuff.

4 salmon steaks

one leek..
one large carrot
.. 4 oz mangetout.
small piece of shredded root ginger (cheat . it comes in a jar on Tesco's spice counter :lol:) .
. 2 tablespoons of Stones Ginger Wine ..
2 tablespoons light soy sauce..
1 tablespoon olive or veg oil..


Garnish with shredded leek.. junipered carrots . shredded ginger strands.

OK .. rub the powder into both sides of the fish.,

2. shred the veg into a large bowl. Add the ginger and the ginger wine and i tablespoon soy sauce,

3. Heat the grill to medium. Smear the rest of the soy sauce on the fish, Grill the fish

Should take 2- 3 mins for each side :wink:

4. Whilst your fish is cooking.. heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan. Stir fry the veg for 5 minutes. Do not overcook. This is best "al dente" :wink:

5. Put on serving plates. Place the salmon on top. Garnish. Mmmmmm! :bighand:

He reads my recipes on here. :lol: They seem to turn up AFTER I posted 'em up! I should have been a chef. I am thinking of opening a restaurant when I eventually retire :lol:

This week's CW tells me to drink expresso coffee (made by coffee machine) and eat porridge and banana for breakfast. To eat salads,, and be sure to take some multivits and fish oil as this will prevent "farting" :shock: when riding :shock:

Yep.. .. it does say that on page 31 :lol:

Coffee seems to be one of those things that is good one day and bad another !
Paul always said that he could get up (or down) the Country on expresso, and occasionally did so !
I tried it with a fair bit of sugar and it does work! :)

I saw some TV that was showing grow your own medicine cabinet - that sounds like fun and sensible.
I hope to restart my veggie patch ... our tomatoes in 07 never got eaten as we were away so much, however 3 tiny tomatoes made it !

I too take various vitamins and buy from online, Boots/Superdrug or Tesco it is bizarre how variable the prices and doses are.

I hope to grow fruit trees and berry bushes too in time - love strawberries especially - used to have some plants but the landlord destroyed them ! (few yrs back)

I wonder what foods people do like to eat on car picnics or help keep them awake.

I heard years ago about a small blue pea sized berry from Scotland that was meant to give you amazing energy, but have failed to find it ! - any ideas anyone ?

Acai - apparently makes great ice cream.. :bighand:


I grow strawberries, rapsberries and gooseberries . along with mint... parsley.. thyme in little tubs on the patio in my garden here.

Have a two apple trees . one Cox and one Bramley. Do grow the odd cauliflower/lettuce/cabbage .. and I find it quite cathartic to potter around the garden

Food's rather a passion. I really do enjoy cooking! :cloud9: The Mad Doc can also cook .. but I think I beat him to a pulp on my simple but fun ideas. :lol:

(The Mad Cats have a whole flowerbed full of stuff .. along with old tyres used for growing spuds .) I envy them that damson tree .. and their wild strawberry/blackberry patch.

They also grow peas.. and I have never managed to do this successfully :banghead: )

Nothing wrong with vitamin supplements or Sanatogen Tonic or even the Tonic Wine! :lol:

I take one Ginseng and one Centrum tablet per day.

June's issue of C PLus tells me to consider coconut oil .. pumpkin seeds .. eggs . soya beans.. walnuts for Omega 3... eggs

For DHA and EHA . to think of salmon.. trout . mackerel.. herring .. anchovies.. kippers.. tuna..

for Omega 6 . sesame .. sunflower corn. nuts

for GLA .. evening primrose oil . and blackcurrant seed oil.


Most interestinly . C+ June tell me that MILK SHAKES aid recovery... so I plan to do some whipped up smoothies with the fruit from my garden :lol:

OK this one for Wildy who needs B12/iron and stuff. OK so I teach the "toppest know it all on the planet to suck an egg here" :bunker: :bunker: :bunker:

OK . you need a handful of flat leaf parsley

organic streaky bacon (which I know they buy from a farm shop equidistant between us :lol: as I am just up the A66 from them .. over the county border . about 40 mins drive :lol:) You can have smoked or unsmoked. I know the Wild one prefers "smoked"

You need about 5 rashers

clove garlic

250 g lambs liver (tender.. wholesome.. pure tender meat full of B12/iron etc)

2 tablespoonns plain flour and olive oil

bay leaves (2)

sea salt/pepper


OK .. warm the serving plate on low oven.

Chop the parsley finely. (I cheat with sharp kitchen scissors and then use the chopper)

2. trim the rind from the bacon. Cut each rasher widthways and lengthways to make thin strips chop the garlic finely#

3. cut the liver into strips Coat in the flour .. you can add salt and pepper to tastes here :wink: Coat well

4. Pour the olive oil into frying pan. Heat to medium. Add the bacon and bay leaves Fry till brown /crispy. Put on serving plate.

5. Add more oil . turn up the heat. Add the liver and sizzle till brown

6. garnish with the parsley

Serve on cocktail sticks. or with tomato/spinach/beetroot salad :lol: with crusty bread or on potato cakes .. :bighand: :drink2: :drink2:

ENJOY! Yum.
