NIGELLA LAWSON'S STIR FRIED MUSHROOMS W PASTA @I HEART COOKING CLUBS


Its Potluck time again at I HEART COOKING CLUBS again this time guys and though usually am all excited to get my post up as soon as possible,am lagging this time around...well my pics are done
(i usually cook up the week before)and the recipe to but havent written in a bit and thats what....ok theres absolutely no pressure here...and i so love to indulge in the delciousness of all the rest of the gang bring in so head in I HEART COOKING CLUBSto catch 'em all....


But can go on rambling some gibberish about how busy it was with college and attending classes and working on assingements,doing as muc as house work as can (my mom to me is my princess,a princess i adore and love and with our househelp not around i do it all for mom-we actually fight over doing the dishes but not the way u think...we fight to do ;em :-))) )))

And then the dinners and lunches and breakfasts and in betweens that we share...


Ok,does this sound like am cribbing...no absolutely not coz i dont usually indulge in that activity :-))))..Im sahring with u my happy pals coz aint that what blooging is about..(too,with a host of other goodies...)




And yeah am sure that all u my happy pals are far busier and come up with fantastic deliciousness and posts in a jiffy (ok ok hold ur horses gurl,i tell myself,now aint the time to 'share' about ur hanging laptop that needs a boost more often than considered desirable enough to be put up with...)




And today have been jumping around excitedly with a goody parcel i recieved....yeah right from picking it up to the drive home---oh was already unpacking it on the back seat even before we got home,even had a siscor carried in my havasack to assist in stubborn packaging material....




Now i got a few moulds and hearty tart forms and silver and goldd papers and my fav cookie cutters and yeah...sprinkles.....And u'll see 'em all in the coming weeks as i use 'em and i got this cute pink digi weighing scale and a few cup cake liners too.....



Ok it aint any wilton or amazing amazon goodies but for me the world and the best i could find in another city and my family got it down for me...so half the day in filling every nook ,corner and drawer of the kitchen which i seem to be evading with my tools,so that it looks neat and i dont clutter up and yeah am geared for another shopping trip already.....:-))))).....


Ok now back to I HEART COOKING CLUBS,which is what this is about really and this weeks potluck.....


This is a rocking group where we cook any of NIgella'a recipes evry week ,fitting to the theme chosen by the lovely trio who keep this great group going eith their wonderfull collages and posts every week.

I chose this recipe ,inspired by DEBS KAHAKAI KITCHEN,which she coincidently cooked up for last months potluck(this wasnt planned i promise.i made it awhile ago...:-))) )




This is a fantastic recipe and i tweaked it good ,in the sense i replaced the fish that go with the mushroom stir fry with PASTA...hehehehehe....and the greens(bok choy)with spinach(ok aint it green too???)


But we had these wonderful button mushrooms and have been wanting to stir fry this one evr since i saw it ...infact even Chaya @ sweet & savoury says it all had this one up....

A NIGELLA LAWSON RECIPE ADAPTED FROM DEBS KAHAKAI KITCHEN
 1)BOIL A CUP OF FUISLLI PASTA AND AMERICAN CORN EACH-A CUP EACH IN V LIGHTLY SALTED WATER.

2)HEAT 1 TBH OF OLIVE OIL..
ADD 4 CLOVES OF GARLIC MINCED
(i also tipped in a few de seeded(catch the flavour not the spice)fresh red chillies,green onions and red peppers chopped fine)



3)FRY 1 POUND(450 GRAMS-BUT I USED ONLY 400 GRAMS) MUSHROOMS TILL JUST DONE( MINS)
(pre-cooked mushrooms-jus placed the mushrooms chopped in a pan and they got well pan grilled as the water released dries up)

4)NOW ADD 3 TBH SOY SAUCE + 1 TBH SESAME OIL AND STIR FRY TILL WELL BLENDED AND DONE.(Arnd 3 mins max)
5)ADD AROUND 2CUPS PALAK ROUGHLY CHOPPED(instead of bok choy in the original recipe).COVER THE PAN FOR A MIN OR 2 till they jus wilt.


6)DID ADD A PINCH OF SUGAR AS WE DO FOR MOST OF OUR COOKING OR LOCAL PALM SUGAR AT TIMES OR A SQUEEZE OF HONEY-WE LOVE HOW IT HEIGHTENS THE SWEET UNDER TONES OF A SAVOURY DELICACY.

 7)SERVE ON A BED OF PASTA WITH A SQUEEZE OF LIME AND GARNISH OF RED PEPPERS ,OLIVES AND WHATEVER CATCHES UR FANCY IN THE KITCHEN.....


A Perfect hearty dinner with a tossed salad of colored peppers,steamed sweet corn & sweet potatoes,cherry toms,shallots ,parsley with a dressing of cream and lime and honey.....

    LOTS of LOVE

  35. Hi - I just wanted to mention that I use a free download - Picasa 3 - to edit photos and add my name to them.
    When they show up sideways as I import them - I am able to right them up again in Picasa.
    Hope that helps!

    Also, many industry analysts believe we have already achieved 'peak oil' ' that point in time in which all the oil on the planet has been found and production must decline, no matter what technology we apply and no matter what else we do. Another way to determine estimation is to use a calculator on the internet.

  37. Smartlipo laser assisted liposuction melts those stubborn pockets of fat and tightens the skin.
    It contains natural ingredients like olive oil, jojoba oil, and other essential oils.
    Finding a way to prevent it in the first place remains an impossibility
    until science can tell us where it comes from.
