My lovely Hubby is affectionately known as the ‘Grande Fromage’, due to his love of cheese 🤓
From today till Monday is the ‘Bestival’ on the Isle of Wight, the last music festival,of the season in the UK. Have a look http://www.bestival.net My youngest 2 kids and their mates will be ‘doing their Thang’ all weekend, so Hubby and I have a few days together, which means we can eat what WE like 😋
Tonight will be gammon steaks with Cauliflower cheese, new potatoes and peas.
I steam the cauliflower, stem, leaves and all – all cut up in the Varoma on the Thermomix, then the cheese sauce is made in the bowl – I use this recipe with some tweeks. http://www.recipecommunity.com.au/side-dishes-recipes/i-love-your-cauliflower-cheese-bake/110161
I use 300ml milk, 30g plain flour, 30g butter, 100g cheese, a teaspoon of mustard powder and a sprinkle of salt and pepper, cook for 7 mins at heat 90 speed 4.
I put the cooked cauli into an ovenproof dish and cover with the cheese sauce with a sprinkle of grated cheddar on top, and wack in the oven at 180 for 15 mins. This will be enough for 2 meals for us, I am freezing one for Sunday dinner.
I will ‘dry fry’ the gammon steaks which I bought on offer through Moneysavingexpert.com from Market Porter.com and I must say the produce has been excellent, and they give you details of where it is from etc
Boil the new potato’s and then I microwave the peas, as it’s easy 😇 Hubby’s not happy as there is no Pineapple ring on the gammon – Ring Ring… Oh it’s the 1970’s calling….they want their menu back 😝
