Thank you. I hardly cook these days, at least this situation has got that again. I'm no substitute for a good restaurant, though.

Tonight:

Pork loin with green chillis (six medium, seeds and all); Sichuan dry-fried green beans without the ingredient I just this second realised I forgot; Jasmine rice. Pork delicious, beans not bad considering.

The beans: par-boil green beans for a couple of minutes, rinse in cold water, leave to drain.

Fry some cut up dried Sichuan chillis and szechuan peppercorn for a few seconds until the chillis start to change colour, then add about three cloves thinly sliced garlic and the same of ginger, stir until it starts to smell good, then (I forgot) add some yu cai (I was going to use nduja, in fact; you could add a little minced pork or bacon at the start instead), then add the beans and fry for a few minutes. Season with salt, plate, sprinkle with sesame oil.

The pork with chillis is based on this, with not enough chilli (I used all I had), and no lard or MSG because I didn't have them either, and the knife skills of a small child by comparison:



I also don't have a wok range like a f**king jet engine, more's the pity.

Fish and chips, Cyprus style. Tonight, more fish and chips, Cyprus style. Just coated in flour and shallow fried. I can envisage this going on until mid-September.

Quite right too.

Wednesday, now-traditional post-grocery packaged pizza. Asda sourdough, decent chew, not bad.

Thursday, chicken burgers with stuff.

Friday, gong bao and ginger broccoli. Remembered I owned rice bowls. Need to find some small square plates.

Pork and peppers again. The veg dish was tasty but ugly, so no share there.

Bought a new induction bowl burner (for woks) and resurrected my old wok that I haven't been able to use since I moved to an apartment with no gas cooking.

It's a bit powerful.

Made another two Fuchsia Dunlop recipes, both new to me: broad beans with ya cai, and sichuan chicken livers with celery.

One of my best meals of the whole lockdown.

Lunch yesterday: bacon, mushrooms, eggs, cream cheese on sourdough.

[Img]https://i.imgur.com/aEL8fs2.jpg[/Img]

Tonight's dinner: broad beans with ya cai (second time); sichuan fish-fragrant pork (first time); rice. Got my wok under much better control this time, and this was delicious.

All hail Fuchsia Dunlop.

Yesterday, a very simple and child-like day (albeit quite a large child).

Lunch:

Dinner:
https://i.imgur.com/glU32MB.jpg

Today, lunch, Japanese instant noodles and Matteson's smoked sausage

https://i.imgur.com/oEaLOkI.jpg

and, dinner, black bean chicken (first time), mangetout with chinese sausage (second time), rice. The chicken should be with green pepper, but I was unable to source one and wasn't prepared to waste several, so orange it was.
