Mac and Cheese!

If I was a cartoon character, I’d be Jerry. Yes Jerry from the good ole Tom and Jerry. Not because I’m too clever by half  (that too) but because I adore cheese. I’ll even fight menacing cats and  huge dogs to get to a nicely treated chunk of Swiss cheese. Or any kind of cheese for that matter. Cheddar cheese for example is another Swiss  cheese for me. Forgive me cheese connoisseurs for saying that. I really am basic when it comes to explaining my choices. While preparing a pizza, lasagna,mac n cheese etcetera etcetera I do pop a huge chunk of cheese in my mouth. I roll it around till the tang settles deeply into my taste buds. Then I chew it bit by bit. My canines, molars and premolars gnawing cheerfully. I savor my cheese to the last particle. Then, I lick my lips in a classic 80’s villain faced-with-pitiful-victim style . A suitable end to a lovely odyssey.

Spicy Spaghetti And Lazy Days

There’s always one Saturday night when I’m up late and the rest of the house is asleep. Inevitably I get hungry, and I want something instantly. No, I won’t order something from Pizza Hut or Nandos. Because when I do that, I fall asleep after placing the order. I am terrible at waiting 😛 Someone else has to get up from their dear sleep, and get the food in. I’d rather go to the kitchen and make my supper spicy spaghetti. I can’t say enough about them. I love them and will have them any time.Especially with a side dish of mash potatoes! Sharing my recipe here!

  • Add the shredded chicken to the pan and stir.
  • Add pureed tomatoes to the pan. stir. Add all the spices,sauces and vinegar and stir them into the material in the pan.
  • Put cornflour in cooled chicken stock and mix with a spoon. (Warning: putting it in hot stock will curdle cornflour)

  • Lastly add boiled spaghetti to the pan and mix them into all the fried material. Fry every thing for 5-7 minutes

Your super spicy spaghetti is ready. The more you make them, the less time it will take. I take maximum half an hour to put the deal together. I love the hot and sour-ness of these!
