Corn and Rice Medley
Very novel and tasty change from just plain steamed rice. I did deviate a bit from the recipe, in that I used parsley instead of mint, spring onion instead of shallot and added frozen green peas because hubby loves them. Also cooked the rice in pork stock that I had sitting in fridge. this dish went divinely with the roast pork and greens that we had that night.Mmmm, will certainly make it again and maybe add pimiento and chili to spice it up.

Spanish Rice Bake
I followed the recipe to the letter with the exception of: adding a couple of chopped chorizo sausage along with the beef mince, using home-made passata sauce instead of tinned tomatoes, used chicken stock instead of water and increased the amount of rice (I used jasmine) slightly by 10 grams. Also pepped up the flavour by adding some chili powder and a dash of Tabasco.Was planning to make chili con carne initially for dinner then thought hmmm, why not do this recipe instead and have a one-pot dish with everything in it. So before transferring to the dish to bake, added a can of kidney beans. A friendly tip while baking in the oven - cover the dish with foil so the cheese won't harden and the rice won't get burned. Hubby loved it, went for seconds. Tasted even better the next day. Got some frozen in reserve for emergency days when there's no time to cook. A real keeper!

Pan de Sal - Filipino Bread Rolls
Did this in a breadmaker and the dough was so sticky I had to remove it in clumps out of the pan which resulted in dough sticking to my hands instead, so had to use a lot of flour to remove. Otherwise the result was very good and soft bread.Gave my mom a few pieces as she's been hankering for pan de sal like the ones we used to get at the "panaderia", will ask for her feedback.
