When I'm cooking.
When I'm cooking something for lunch/ dinner/ breakfast (baking is a different story- you must follow every instruction! Trust me!) and I have a recipe in front of me, I'll almost always use it as a rough guideline, examine the flavours and recreate my own version. Some times I don't even have a specific recipe in front of me, but I have several in my head so I mush them all together!
Either way, there is no measuring or weighing or trying to figure out what the heck a small- medium sized beetroot is. Nope. It's whatever starts to look good.
For example oats:
A sort of recipe. A typical Steph-style recipe!
It involves this:
A hunk of slightly stale home made spelt bread (any bread will work)
And one of these bad boys:
A huge portobello mushroom! (from the farmers market of course!)
If you guessed a stuffed mushroom then you are cooorrrreeeccctt!
Very filling indeed. I was stuffed! ;)
Do you follow recipes?
Do you simply throw lots of ingredients into a pot and hope for the best like me?
Do you like stuffed mushrooms? I've got to say, I used to hate them... now I think they're pretty darn good. I guess I hated them because I hated mushrooms in general. And stuffing. Ha.
See ya later friends! Have a very very good day! Do something unexpected! :D
