The great button cook off

Today we did a family cook off.



I chose to do the main and a fish course with my mum. I made venison steaks with broccoli and cheese gratins and chilli and chocolate. For the fish course we made cod and black pudding with lardons and home made tomato ketchup.

Pea Pesto Spaghetti

This weekend I stayed with my Grandma and Grandpa and I wanted to cook dinner for them. I made a pesto spaghetti meal which I saw in Waitrose when I went shopping with Mummy. I made the pesto out of: frozen peas chilli almonds parmesan cheese mint olive oil We stirred it into some spaghetti and I had lemon juice on it. We also had salad and for pudding I ate lots of fruit - strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. The pea pesto tasted super yummy and we had Appletiser. I am going to make this again at home for Mummy and Daddy. Thanks, bye.

The Great Pork Pibl

I made a pork pibl. A pork pibl is pork shoulder that is spicy and is slow cooked. It is GOOD! We started it at 9 o'clock this morning. We put the pork in the slow cooker with spices. Cumin seed Chilli powder A scotch bonnet chilli (without the seeds) Black pepper Ground allspice 2 bay leaves 2 squeezed oranges cut into 4 pieces A splash of cider vinegar 4 garlic cloves Tomato puree This afternoon I cut some cherry tomatoes. I spread the nachos about in a BIIIIIIIGGGG BOOOWWWL.  I chopped corriander which was very very intense. We sprinkled on red onion and red peppers and avocado.  Then I ripped the mozarella cheese and we had grated cheddar cheese and some jalepenos but not on all of it. Daddy cooked some sweetcorn on the BBQ and Mummy put the nachos in the oven to melt the cheese. Mummy used a fork to shred the pork and we put it on top and put it in the oven. I made a dressing. The dressing was creme fraiche which is like yoghurt. And some chiv

Summer Fruits Cake

Today I made a cake because I felt like it. It is a Victoria sponge cake. I used: 125g caster sugar 125g butter 125g plain flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 small eggs 1 tbsp milk We cooked it in two small tins for about 10 minutes (note from Mummy - about 180 degrees C) and let them cool. We chopped them into rectangles. Then  my big sister Lara made some butter cream with vanilla and I piped it on in blobs. I cut up lots of strawberries from our garden and put them inside. On top I put strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries and currants. I picked them yesterday in the garden. This cake is soft, sweet and summery. With squirty cream I don't think it will taste as good as just the cake because it will make it have too much sweetness. Its very summery because it has lots of summery fruits from our own garden. Even though the gooseberries are sharp, they still are really yummy.
