That is 'homemade bread' that Manu is holding up there. More like a golf ball! Kat obviously had never attempted bread before. She used 4-5 sachets of dry yeast to make her 20 bread rolls. The dough looked like pastry and didn't rise after the first prove. They looked like rocks when they were rolling them - like playdough - and looked even harder when they took them out of the oven!
Why, why, why would they put that on the plate?
Night after night we are treated to flop after flop and I do realise there is huge pressure in the kitchen to produce 3 courses with 12 portions but seriously! I realise it is all choreographed and that things will miraculously get better when they get into the MKR kitchen but this has been going on for weeks. Show us some straight up, in the home kitchen talent! I am losing interest! I don't even have a favourite team!
What irks me is how they change a recipe. "I've made this a dozen times, its a family recipe but today I think I'll put some red wine vinegar in my chocolate mud cake .... oh gee, that doesn't taste good! I don't know what went wrong!" Are you kidding me?
Or attemping to fillet a 6 foot tuna then complaining that there are still a lot of bones in it!
Most of the crap could have been cooked by a Year 10 Home Ec student! Okay, I'll stop now...
I might send Kat my recipe for bread rolls which uses only 1 packet of yeast!
Things had better start getting good or I'm out!
What do you think?
I am enjoying season 5 of Downton Abbey. I have been taping it and watching it later but it's good! I will grab it on DVD when I can, to add to my collection.
I bought this colouring book recently and sat colouring like small child...
Very relaxing! It takes a bit of concentration and I wish my eyesight was better...
This is the picture I am going to attempt next...
Well, its Tuesday here so its a quick tidy through after the long weekend then off to work. No doubt Gus will have lots of paperwork for me after him being away all last week.
Lovely cool temps here with 23C expected today - my kind of weather!
