Don't know if I've posted before, but this is a really simple recipe and probably reasonably healthy.

Baby spinach leaves, big handful or three
Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half, as many as you like
Avocado, half a avocado, sliced, or a whole one if it's a big salad
Chicken thighs, skinless, roasted after drizzling with olive oil and seasoned well, takes half an hour or so, then sliced

Throw in the first three ingredients, season, dress with light French dressing, toss, then top with warm chicken slices and toss again.

It's great!

This is a recipe I tried today and it turned out well:

Six gourmet sausages of your choice, I used tomato and onion sausages.
One red onion, sliced into thin slivers, not rings.
One red capsicum, you can leave this out if you like.
A few crushed garlic cloves.
A can of crushed tomatoes.
A quarter of a cup of white wine.

Just throw it all into a slow cooker, and cook for four hours on high.

Serve the sausages with mash, and a teaspoon of chilli jam on the top of the sausage, drizzled along the sausages. The chilli jam is an essential addition!

Been making Calzones a fair bit lately, so easy to make and take next to no time. You can also put whatever you like as a filling.

Tonight I made a brilliant Steak burger with Onion and Pineapple!

Pumpkin sourdough loaf is the bread. Scotch fillet steak, grill, make sure it's not overdone. Barbecue the sliced onion, white or red, thinly sliced into rings, along with the pineapple rings. Make sure the onion and pineapple are put on a low heat, and caramelises. Then place mixed leaf salad on the bun, steak, top with barbecue onion and pineapple, then beetroot, top it all with barbecue sauce, with beetroot relish spead on the top side of the bun.

For this, I should be nominated for Queenslander of the Year.

Can't believe offensive behaviour like this is allowed on the GH.

Disgusting precedent set by administration.

Bought a new slow cooker a couple of weeks ago... and did this today... OUTSTANDING!

And just to clarify, the "broiler" is just the grill setting for your oven, but putting it on a low rack... Took five minutes to make the skin very crispy and sizzling.

Tonight I made roast chicken with apple and prune stuffing. The secrets... wash the chicken, then pat dry, then rub over the skin with cracked pepper and milled sea salt... the stuffing is a diced green apple, and diced pitted prunes and a small amount of Italian bread, softened with water, then bound with an egg, make sure it is very moist... after stuffing the chicken, put in the pan upside down, and drizzle with olive oil and go over it again with the milled sea salt.

Cook it an hour upside down, until the skin is golden, then turn over, baste, and mill sea salt over the top again... and cook again until golden. Overcooking shouldn't be a problem, as there is a good moisture in the stuffing etc. In fact, let it cool in the oven, oven turned off, for half an hour or so, once you think it is close.

Just watch you don't make the chicken too dry.

I like my chicken moist.
