later that day.. it was a big family get together again.. 8 adults, 9 children..
I got some soup out of the freezer (that was made a few weeks back with 2 of the grandaughters helping).. went down really well as a starter, everyone loved it... went back for seconds... even thirds !
then we had a full roast chicken dinner
and as the evening drew to a close some of those that stopped wanting nibbles so I went looking for bits.. made some chicken pittas (with the leg/wing meat from the roast dinner... did I mention I cooked 3 chickens for it ?)
put some stuffings on the side of the plate if anyone wanted it.
and the freezer yielded some samosas and spicy hot chicken pieces
I feel I should share this as well.. during the cooking all day it wasn't just the people I was feeding... also fed this thing about 4 times during the day, keeping everything done and put back etc... this morning I emptied it and have reloaded it twice since..(been cooking again as well)
two of our grandchildren stopped last night and wanted some breakfast... the sausage is a pork and sweet chilli, with the bacon and egg... (not bad for 4 and 5 year olds)
and then for lunch they had some lasagne I made one Sunday and saved a few small portions in the freezer for "justin"

Whew 8 adults and 9 children last minute good thing you freezer was well stocked. Don’t blame you for not wanting to cook the next day.
All looks great!

I cannot keep up with your unfolding food drama, Steve!
You should keep a blog with a running tale of your gorgeous meals and snacks!! I love that soup with the pie in it -- my sort of food!! Also really feel like one of those chicken pitas!
Mannnnn ... you cook! In more than one way!

Your 50/50 reminded DH of amphibious landing craft I love the clarity of the photo.
Oh Steve I see those fresh figs and will be right over that is the best way to start the day in my opinion.

Steve, you are seriously making me drool over here and I have just had breakkie two hours ago. Everything looks so delicious!

Well you may have noticed I've been away.. on holiday... so here are some of the dishes we had....
(all of these are from my mobile phone)
in the airport, we had a very long queue to put baggage in... got though and wanted something to eat... so we had a "sharing platter starter" in one of those American chain places that I keep calling tom and jerrys lol
mid flight we had our meal - a bolognese sauce with gnocchi
first morning we had cornflakes !!
one day after a few hours walk, we called into a bar/restaurant that we have been to on past holidays .. after few drinks we were given some battered chicken pieces with sweet chili dip
other half had pork chop in the hotel later
I had the mixed grill
breakfast in the hotel - full English with brew and toast etc
another breakfast... weetabix on our balcony
On a previous holiday we walked to the next town but it was grueling and we were dying of thirst halfway.... so she decided to do it again, only take some water this time... after a good couple of hours or so of walking we got there, needed another drink so called at a little cafe.. didn't mean to eat, but they were doing kebabs (gyros) with really pieces of pork... had to sample
village salad at the hotel
Steens Restaurant in Protaras doing whale and chips..(cod but VERY big)
I had the steak
Greek pizza in the hotel, lunch time snack
tahini dip in a new Cypriot Restaurant
back at hotel (some pics of food are on my proper camera so hence the jump).. this nearest is the double doner in a pitta, and behind the double greek burger... we always thought they were the same thing, just one was cut up... but this time we could see and taste they were different
and another new to us restaurant.. this is slow cooked chilli beef (with chunks of beef)
pork chop in hotel
lamb chops in hotel
double bubble breakfast at a place we tried a few times... presentation to me looked wrong
so I adjusted it !
my mixed kebab at the Cypriot place (Thomas shack)
same place as the double bubble breakfast, this is a starter of spicy chicken
and mozzerella sticks
breakfast in hotel again
basil and tomato soup
sausage dog !.. English sausages, fried onions and grilled cheese on a baguette..
This was called "the new york slider" burger... bacon, cheese etc.. tasted great but I have always thought a slider was a small, almost bite sized burger that you would be served 2 or 3, maybe several ?
BBQ night at the hotel.. chicken and pork on the souvla
bbq on the plate
burger in the hotel
Large Irish breaky in Steens
went for a drive, got hungry.. had some starters for lunch - dolmades in an egg and lemon sauce, really good... dips and pitta
mixed grill in Steens
marmalade on toast from the English breakfast in the hotel
We were talking to Andreas who runs the bar and restaurant about the dolmades we had on our drive.. he was shocked that we were having to go out to eat them.. next day he brought some from home that his wife made... they were also lovely... he is now adding some more Cypriot dishes to the menu
last meal in Cyprus, pork chops again
Sun Sep 29, 2013 7:44 amFood.com Groupie
and these are from the main camera
clam starter.. never had clams, went all Rick Stein on these... slurping the broth from the shells etc... really good
butternut squash filled pasta with a blue cheese sauce.. same places as the clams, really good
same pasta but without flash, showing how the lighting effects pictures
from the Cypriot Restaurant (Thomas Shack) my sea bream.. lovely
ribeye steak (from Mojitos, where the double bubble breakfast was from... they have 3 different menus, one breakfast, one lunch and evening)
at Mojitos for breakfast this was called "the posh one".. served on a focaccia bread, smoked salmon, poached egg with tomato and mushrooms and a glass of champagne... didn't need booze for breaky but I wanted the salmon and egg... really really good
this was same place with a light delight breaky.. grilled and poached etc
Thomas Shack again.. feta and yoghurt dip..
Steens, liver paté starter
and even though I'd gone in thinking I'd have one of the homemade burgers, one of the specials was liver, bacon and onion so I had to have it
oranges on a tree
From the Nautilus (our fav Italian) a dark chocolate sponge and icecream.. we don't do puddings but this was very dark and lovely
Mojitos (they do a big selection of countries and styles) an Indian selection sharing starter
and this one is from the mobile phone... missed it ..
going home.. roast chicken dinner on the plane

and now back home...
first day back suffering with bad colds (still are) but family wanted to come up and see us... so we did a bit of shopping and came up with a no messing about tea.... hot dogs with chilli (tinned chilli !!).. steamed onions, cheese etc... went down really well
still not feeling much better, knocked up some Chinese chicken noodle
and because I wanted the breakfast I'd had on holiday again.. made some mini focaccia bread, and put salmon and poached eggs on (also added cream cheese and chives to make it even better)
using up the focaccia for breakfast... had some sausages... seemed to plain for a sausage butty, so used the sausage meat to make a burger (stuffed with cream cheese) and added a poached egg on top !
cooked breaky day after (no lunch, kept going until evening meal)
One of the restaurants had felafel on the menu with tabouleh salad... but they had run out... we went back a few days later and the lunch menu had falafel wraps with tabouleh salad, but again they were out... I'd craved it for days..... so last night when we went shopping I got some chickpeas and bulgar wheat and made my own...Wraps have pea shoots for salad, houmous, falafel and mint yoghurt on them... the bulgar wheat was cooked in veg stock, allowed to cool, mixed with fresh tomatoes, cucumber, roasted red peppers and loads of parsley
and as I had some left I used the wraps and tabouleh to make a sausage wrap for breakfast (even had houmous on) tasted great
