Random Food Thought #1

Don’t ever make homemade Macaroni Cheese with Red Leicester cheese, even if the BBC Food recipe website thingy tells you too.

Do however buy a small baguette, cut it in half lengthways, drop several small knobs of butter along the squishy side (opposite of the crusty side) of the bread along with a bulb of roughly chopped garlic (per half). Wrap each half in tin foil and cook at 180 degrees (celcius/centrigrade/whatever) for about 25 minutes or until hot and garlicy. Eat before it cools. Yum. :)

Go love me.

    Sounds delish. I’ve never been able to figure out how to make real garlic bread rather than buying the horrible frozen stuff from Tesco. Then again, I’ve never been a good cook… And I hate Red Leicester cheese X(

    Recipes a la Jem? I would promise to try it out, but my parents have banned me from the kitchen as I tend to…well, have kitchen accidents which involve burning food, setting off fire alarms, and blowing up the microwave. I’ll take your word for it though. :)

    I can vouch for the garlic bread. Excellent. The pasta wasn’t half bad..it was a learning experience! I personally love red Leicester..but it’s not a saucy cheese..

    Random Food Thought #2 I need to dissemble my microwave and ask each part why it doesn’t heat my food properly.

    Lesson: Never read Jem’s food postings while you’re stuck at school and didn’t eat breakfast. >.< Sounds great though, I'll have to try that when I get home. :)

    Yum, garlic bread. But I prefer the baguettes to be plain.

    ^ me too me too : ( I don’t know what Red Leicester cheese is -at all- but I do love regular old homemade macaroni and cheese, the way it’s all stringy ~mmm and it just generally tastes yummier.

    Gawd, I so want a baguette right now! I’ll guess I have to settle with my fish sticks, hamburger-bread and my mashed potatoes made of potato-powder. Oh yeah, a fishburger ahead!
