Lately I've been marinading it in chilli, garlic, honey and lemon and putting it in a container and cooking it in the Philips Airfryer. Before that I just did the same in the oven and a little oil, but we've griddled it, too.
Oh! I've never marinaded it! good thinking! I can't digeste too much fat so are the air fryers good? I don't deep fat/fry any food?
( if I don't reply immediately I'm not ignoring you - I have to do some jobs & will be back later btw).

Yes, you can cook most things you'd fry or cook in the oven in smallish quantities. It's quite big in size. I don't eat meat or fish so I haven't tried that:

We haven't had it for long so aren't completely au fait with it.

Aww thank you - I'm going to bookmark these & read tonight - I am really interested. I'll let you know what I think later. I love innovative kitchen gadgets! But as I said I can't digest too much fat but some foods need the flavour plus I do like to cook for all my family's tastes in a healthy way. Thank you again.

No problem!

I love cabbage flan! Haven't had it for ages so thanks for the reminder.

Tonight is a meal for spring, even thought it's blowing and hooley and we had hail last night. Tagliatelli with baby carrots, leeks, green beans and fresh peas

That sounds lovely, very simple and fresh.

Stodge tonight. Steak pudding, mash and spring greens.

Do you have a recipe for your lentil lasagne? It sounds really nice



Tonight i'm having pasta with ham and sweetcorn in a creamy (possibly cheese) sauce.

Duck breasts with a Mexican-ish sauce including tomatoes, chilis and mango. Served with Gallo's 3 Grain mix, which we use a lot.
