Food Blog of the Week… What Us?

How could I forget to tell everyone (anyone?) that we, us, the disciples of oat, actually got some recognition for being kitchen luddites. How bloody far out is that? Not only did we get “Food blog of the week” but we actually inspired “Mama” to start off the weekly awards in the first place. I here by crown myself and the MCC Sensi with a crown of linguine and basil.

This Mama Cooks! Food Blog of the Week

While I’ve been gone…

Holidays are great! You go away, you eat nice food, if you’re lucky the sun shines and you eat more nice food, time speeds up and you feel like you’ve been away forever and then you get back and nothings changed and everyone says “have you been away?”.

I’ve been back a few days now and I’ve missed two MCC’s and Sensi and Fraggle have been on an uber cook up without me. Lime noodles, Italian night with garlic bread, mozarella and avocado salad, and some penne dressed in a lovely looking tomato sauce. Not only have they started to drip feed me photo’s to make me realise all that I don’t know, there’s not even a recipe in sight… I’m not bitter, just hungry…

Spaghetti (South) Western & the Secret of the Lost Scrolls

Last week we went Mondo Bongo Italiano with slow cooked Tomato & Basil sauce, three colours salad & a garlic bread recipe that’s sharper than the creases in a pair of stay-press trousers. Yet, despite our best efforts, the forces of darkness were @ work that night, and the ancient scrolls containing the recipe manuscripts were stolen.At this very moment the M.C.C. is on an Indiana Jones type mission deep in the South American jungle attempting to recover the aforementioned ‘scripts. Wish us luck…MCC Sensi.
