Deep fried battered shrimp. I couldn't decide whether I wanted garlic mayo or sweet chili sauce to dip them in, so have both. It's good to be the king.
edit: This is the point where I change the oil in the deep fryer. You can cook chips for a long time in the same oil but when you start using batter lots of little bits go to the bottom, and as soon as you start cooking wings or sausage or shrimp time starts running out fast, and you only do deep fried oysters once without an oil change before cooking something else. That's why I pan-fry my oysters.

We used to have a deep fat fryer and when we thought it was time for an oil change, we'd do wings or drumsticks and then change.

We got rid and now use the actifry which is great. But now I have a hankering for fish/sausage in batter which obviously won't do in the actifry.

Stepson decided to treat everyone to Chinese. But I find Canadian Chinese to be rather ordinary and their curries are totally different to British Chinese ones.

So while they had their won ton soups, ribs, chicken balls, rice , egg roll and veggies I made my own chicken curry and it was delicious.
I made two actually. One for the fridge.

Am thinking of buying a deep fat fryer. Reading this, perhaps I should just do that.

<br /><br />While it does give me the freedom to make chips on a whim and a little more safety than a pan of boiling oil, it isn't a hard necessity. For small things like a handfull of shrimp or a few battered whatever a wok with just enough oil in the bottom and the Chinese "fishing basket" or slotted spoon does a good job. When a 1.5l deep fryer is on sale here it's usually half price, or about $30 - $40 Cdn (I'm on my 2nd one). I also have a 3l Bravetti in a box in the basement in case I ever need it again.

I'd arranged to go out for dinner with a friend tonight, but when I got home from work I was starving so I had a small bowl of muesli to keep me going until dinner. And when I say a small bowl of muesli I mean a big bowl of muesli.

So about half an hour later I was in food baby labour, sweating like a pig, stomach out like a zeppelin, knowing that I still had to go and have a meal in about a hour.

I want to make chicken wings and shrimp, peppers, mushrooms etc, rice, and that spinach and garlic thing that sounds so good. There may be a case for getting the big cast-iron wok out of the bottom drawer of the stove. We'll see what I do.

What does everyone think about the plausible report that says we need to cut our meat consumption by 90% to save the planet?

I eat much less meat than I used to. I like it but I just find it harder to ignore the fact that meat production is environmentally devastating.

I think it sounds plausible.

Meet you halfway; I keep eating all the meat I want but allow you to produce it in as environmentally friendly a manner as you see fit. What I really liked was the period when I lived mostly off of meat and fish I hunted and caught myself. I think I was pretty healthy then.
Picked up some potstickers to go with supper tonight, just need to set the wheels in motion...

We don't eat much meat now. Mainly THXG and Christmas the rest of the time the only meat is the fish I catch. The only thing I really miss are sausage rolls.

We used Skip The Dishes to order from a Malaysian restaurant.
I ordered a bunch of appetiser things and one main course that could be divided up and I made some fried rice in case people didn't have enough.

I tried to satisfy all four of us. My stepdaughter will try anything, anything stepson doesn't recognise is weird and he's sceptical about it and mother in law is not very adventurous. But give her due, she will try...and she's always very happy that she's had something new.

The fried rice was unnecessary.
