I had another Moussaka experiment yesterday. It was pretty good except the 'cheat' I used was a Bechamel mix that has been acceptable previously but I wanted to make it thicker than previously, so used ore of the mix.

Unfortunately it was then too salty. Why is salt an ingredient of a Bechamel mix?

I added some extra tomato today to take the salty edge off and it was fantastic.

Next time I'll have my stepdaughter do the Bechamel properly but I'm also going to try it without.

Usually now it's just an apple or banana for my tea as I've stopped eating after 4:00pm.

Making French onion soup tonight. My God, it smells absolutely amazing but I'm going to have to wash every item of clothing in the apartment. If I could fit the sofa in the washing machine that would have to go in too.

Is there a better smell in the world than cooking onions?

Brewing coffee, baking bread, garlic sizzling in butter...all great smells. Or should that be aromas? Aroma sounds much classier than smell, like, you know wot I means.

Only bacon jam! Made 2 lots recently and it includes caramellised onions. What wine did you use?

Here's a recommendation for Spam Bacon. It's obviously not bacon but it's not bad.
From the leftover chickens that went on Sunday dinner and Monday curry, we had club style sandwiches and spicy fries yesterday. But we had no bacon so I used this instead.

Two of the other three thought it was bacon. The one that didn't, opened the tin and sliced it while I was doing the other bits.

I had tofu and sprouts again but was out of wine or sherry for the gravy so used some of the cherry flavoured bourbon I use in wing sauce, not bad!

I'm making corned beef hash for supper, so quite possibly could have corned beef hash with eggs on top for breakfast. If you're having corned beef hash with eggs on top for breakfast you can absolutely have a beer with it.
