Roast rack of lamb with garlic and rosemary.

I regret not adding vegetables but I haven't had time to do a proper shop yet. It was still very nice though.

You just got back to halls and are cooking like that?! Laughing out loud

Looks well good

One for the foodies. I want some home comforts tonight after my library sesh, I'm not the greatest cook in the world but I'm not bad, I wanna do a nice meal that doesn't need a huge amount of ingredients, ones I can buy down sainsburys local. I'll be cooking for one too, any suggestions?

Beat me to it.

If you're making the onion gravy with granules, then make the gravy first before you even start peeling potatoes, that way the gravy and onions really combine together, rather than it just being gravy with onions in.

Smiling I was thinking that! But I want to step out of my comfort zone, do something I haven't cooked before. I know you don't know my meal history, but I don't generally cook meals that take much effort, don't think it's really possible to prepare good stuff when cooking for one.

Stew and dumplings?

I can get you a recipe for dumplings that uses butter instead of suet and doesnt need to go in the oven either.

Plus any left overs, will taste fucking amazing tomorrow.

It definitely is possible to make nice stuff for one, what do you feel like? Could make something big which you can store in the fridge after, a nice chilli/bolognese/lasagne works well for that, you could get some cubed lamb and do something like this: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/3414/minty-lamb-kebabs
you could do a mini roast and eat the left overs as sandwiches

There are loads of possibilities.

I had stew the other day, lovely stuff. I might do a lasagne, it's my favourite, still want to try something new though…I really like spicy food, my gf's mum taught me a really good recipe for a thai curry, I could give her a ring and ask her to talk me through it again. I'm not a big fan of lamb really, never have been. I want to start to learn how to cook this term, I'm going to be really busy with my dissertation and a couple of big essays to finish my MA, so I want to stop going out and knuckle down, I can spend my cash on nice ingredients to experiment with.

Can I have this please, last time I made butter dumplings they were good but too stodgy.

Luke I think the things I suggested were more because you said comfort food rather than trying to be challenging, how about tom yum soup Cool

Yeah comfort food was probably the wrong phrase. That soup looks good! There's an asian supermarket just opened across the road from me, I might wander in and make some of that.

best way to cook lamb steaks ? id normally do em in the oven, but sometimes can overccok/dry out, could pan fry i guess with a little olive oil, but i dont want em too greasy.

I don't think they would work well with butter, it's a different kind fo fat to suet, it melts too easily, wouldn't they be really stodgy ?

Normal dumplings don't have to go in the oven, you can drop them in a pan of stew on the hob if you want, they just won't be crusty on top.
