    YUM! That's funny - I just made that not long ago. A hot pizza stone works great for making naan.

    Really good mashed potatoes:

    3-4 golden Yukon potatoes
    Salt
    Pepper
    Basil
    Rosemary
    Garlic Powder
    Unsalted Butter
    Cream (optional)

    Preparation:

    Peel and cube potatoes. Place in pot full of water, turn burner to medium-highish heat. (But not so high your pot boils over and douses the burner flame! )

    Add to water: salt (liberally), pepper, a pinch of basil, two large pinches of rosemary, garlic powder (liberally--enough to thinly cover the surface of the water).

    Cover pot. Leave potatoes to boil for ~20 minutes. Stir occassionally. When they are ready, you should be able to easily poke into them with a fork (like the consistency of butter).

    Drain pot of water.

    Mash in pot with implement of choice until they are a smooth consistency. Add two pats of unsalted butter (and a small amount of cream if you so desire) while mashing.

    Eat.

    I doubled the ingredients and used 2cups of milk instead of 1 cup. This weekend I'm making pumpkin molasses muffins. Will post the result

    Brother-in-law's Lasagne, simplified by Tamske...

    I learnt a great lasagne recipe from brother-in-law...
    I changed almost everything in it...

    Ingredients (2 hungry persons):
    * 800 g tomatoes
    * half a package precooked lasagne sheets
    * 400 g ground meat (pork or mixture beef-pork)
    * the smallest tin of tomato concentrate
    * mozarella cheese
    * emmentaler cheese

    Take the biggest pan you have. Heat some olive oil. Add ground meat. Stir while baking. Add tomatoes. Put a lid on the pan and lower the heat. Let simmer until the tomatoes give off juice.

    Cut the mozarella in thin slices. Grate the emmentaler.

    Add the tin of tomato concentrate. (You can add herbs/spices here - I take the ones that take my fancy. Provencal herbs and pepper. Or thyme and rosemary. Or basil. You can use a laurel leaf too, but you've got to add that in the beginning).

    Fill an oven pot with layers of tomato-ground meat mixture, lasagne sheets, mozarella slices and end with mozarella. Cover with the grated emmentaler.

    Put in oven for 20 minutes on 200°C.

    Have a good meal!

    I've recently found that HP sauce from the UK is absolutely spectacular as a dip with sweet potato french fries or chicken nuggets.

    Tomorrow I'm going to make salmon patties with cheese grits. All you need is canned or packaged salmon, an egg or two (depending on how much you make, 1 egg per can should suffice), chopped onions (optional), and bread or cracker crumbs with salt and pepper to taste. I've always made it with cracker crumbs, but I'm actually going to try it with torn pieces of bread this time. Just mix all of the above together (except for the grits, which will be a side dish), form into medium sized balls/patties, and fry over medium heat in olive oil or butter until lightly browned on both sides.

    If anyone is interested, I'll post what my results were with bread crumbs vs. cracker crumbs.

    Just in case anyone wants to know, the salmon cakes turned out great with small, slightly dry breadcrumbs from the two heels of "healthy white" bread. I actually like them better this way than with crackers! I used one package of salmon, one egg, plenty of chopped red onion, and almost two pieces of heel bread cooked in olive oil to a nice brown which takes 3-5 minutes on each side (traditional southern people use butter, but I'm slightly more health conscious, especially since I'm already going to be putting a pat of butter on my grits).

    For cheese grits, just make them according to the directions on the box (I use regular not instant) and add a little butter and maybe 1/4 cup of sharp shredded cheddar cheese for two servings. I like to add salt and pepper to both grits and patties. Sometimes I dip the salmon patties in some ketchup, but if you make them the right way they are also delicious plain.

    For people who don't have the time (or skill) to cook, I found a delicious way to make Mexican style food.

    Buy the prepared pot roast in the refrigerated section. I used Tyson because it was on sale. Just cook in microwave according to package directions.

    Then in the frozen section buy a bag of onions and peppers mixed (I saw store brand for like 88 cents) or pay a dollar more and get a "fajita mix" veggie bag like I did. Cook those in a pan over medium-high heat till they are nice and soft and the water has evaporated, maybe with a little oil so that it won't stick to the pan.

    Fill soft tortillas with pot roast and onion/pepper mix, and add a dollop of sour cream. These are so freakin' delicious and quite easy to prepare. MUCH better than any sort of "microwave burrito."

    Sounds tasty! But... how much is 800g tomatoes, and what is emmentaler cheese?
