Barnsley Chops 🐑

My brilliant dad @chrisanncarter bought me a giant box of meat for Christmas. So much in fact I had to freeze some. I had totally forgotten about them and I found some Barnsley chops at the back of the freezer.

I had never heard or tried them before. They’re a bit like lamb T-bone steaks.

I covered them in salt and pepper and put my griddle pan on high. I held them in my tongs and fried the fatty edge for a few minutes to render it down and it get it nice and crispy. Then about 5 mins on each side. I let the steaks rest.

I saw this @deliciousmag recipe for roasted sliced potatoes with rosemary and salt.

The Barnsley chops and potatoes were amazing. It was like a thick juicy lamb chop, and with the salty crispsy potatoes it was delicious

My pizza makes me happy 😀🍕😍

The old favourite 🍕 – I just can’t beat it. Especially after a long hard week.

I love being in the kitchen constructing the pizza, then watching it bake, and then of course eating it.

This evening’s was mozzarella, blue cheese, red pepper, egg and chili. Fan-bloody-tastic 😀🍕😍

Pasta Station 🇮🇹🍝🍕

I popped into the Pasta Station for the first time and it was like stepping into Italy.

It’s a deli with amazing looking meats, salamis, cheeses and cannolis. But they also have a glass fridge counter full of fresh homemade pasta. You can eat different types of pastas with sauces, and some pizzas.

I had a delicious focaccia style pizza with a fantastic crispy crumbly onion and cheese topping, plus extra cheese and prosciutto in the middle. Deeelicious!

I’ll be going back and next time I’m trying the homemade pasta 🇮🇹 🍝 🍕 😀
