Busy evening in the kitchen last night. Starting to get fedup with the book being American, so many of the ingredients are a pain in the ass to get.
Chocolate chip cookies pg. Had to substitute treacle for molasses. When it was all mixed it seemed a little too dry for me, anyway made 12 big fat cookies and they baked ok. Taste wise they are a little too salty, recipe has 1 tsp of salt which seems excessive or maybe my marg has more salt than normal in it.
For dinner I made the mushroom sauce pg to go on pasta. First time I have cooked with arrow root powder. I added it to boiling water and it went into a ball of slime. Second go I mixed with cold water first and that worked grand. Sauce wasn't really good enough to go on pasta also tasted too salty, could be the stock I used.
To go with the pasta I made pesto pg, pesto is always great and this recipe is no different.
