Ever have one of those mouth watering moments where you are wondering what you can make with the bog standard usual ingredients already in the cupboard/fridge that isn’t the bog standard usual you always seem to have. Well I had a sort of something like that, I dived into the idea of some tasty fajitas, beefy strips cooked in the seasoning, with a few mushrooms for flair, all wrapped up in a tortilla with a throw of lettuce as ‘greens’ option. Hmmmm, just one problem bog standard cupboard does not stock tortillas, no problem, I will get some and create this culinary taste heaven.
The delivery came, the ingredients were prepared, all systems were go, the meat fried with the stir in sauce, the tortillas warmed in the micro, the spoon was ready to dish up. Oh yes, my gastric juices were flowing, I was anticipating the deliscious satisfying pride of a good eal devoured.
I didn’t ….. After wrapping and re-wrapping the wraps in doing so the juices slowly seeping down my finger. I took a mouthful and okay it had the expected the flavours, it was mediocre but not the “ohh ohh ohh hmmmm Mmmmmm orgasmic agggggg” Homer Simpson style euphoria that my mind envisaged. My taste buds were left feeling deflated and unsatisfied and instead turned their attention to a few cravings.
Now me and my cravings can and often do transcend into the not so straight forward. Here has been this weeks
- Pork Pies, with brown sauce or branston pickle
- Lettuce with tomatoes drizzled with extra virgin olive oil
- Lettuce sandwiches
- Chip Shop Fish with tartar sauce and lemon juice
- Aero minty bubbles
- Raw Peanuts [are these get able or to be fit for human consumption do they have to be roasted and coated with salt]
- Wine Gums
- Corn on the cob
- Pork Scratchins
- Green beans, cabbage and gravy
I am having another go tonight, chicken in smoky barbecue sauce fajitas,because I have tortillas left to use – wish it was a Turkish feast pizza from round the corner instead.
