Richard sent me this recipe the other day and decided it was something we should try, probably because I have this ridiculous love feast going on for rocket and because it included steak topped with cheese. If you top anything with cheese Richard will eat it - including he says shit! This is the man I am marrying, how proud I am!
Following @BigSpud on twitter, I noticed that he too had tried it. Which I thought was a big coincidence but apartly there has been advertisements about it all over the place, which I haven't seen, 1 because we don't have waitrose in Scotland and 2 because I sky plus everything as I hate adverts!
I got 2 lovely sirloins from Andrew Gordons and made Richard do the frying, because I am such a girl and scared of hot oil!
I have to say although the steak and indeed the recipe was delicious I just don't think there is such a big difference from Hestons near deep frying method and my usual oil to meat, meat to dry griddle pan, but hey Heston is a genius is he not?
Richard also commented when eating it that it smelt nice, which prompted me to ask, "does that mean it doesn't taste nice?" He assured me it did, he was just saying is all!
Before we indulged in the fillet steaks from Andrew Gordon, we had a simply starter of scallops served on rocket, with black pudding, crispy bacon and a warm balsamic dressing - need I say more?
I picked up these fillets steaks from Andrew Gordons, they were delicious, served just simply with mushrooms and onions fried with some markies cream cheese with black pepper corns to make some sort of sauce - I could eat this any time any day.

My very first cucumber plant has started to grow, it looks like it is just sticking it's bum out to test the air, since this 2 others have appeared as well!
Parsley has also decided to make an appearance this week - will I really be one day chopping this and actually putting it in my cooking? I'm impressed with myself!

Came across this blog on twitter and thought I would recommend it, it's about a chap who won a competition in which the prize was a years supply of burittos (well 52) he has decided to use these as a basis for 52 dates in the hope of finding love.
He's only been on 4 so far, but the blog has started well - thought I'd pass it on.
