Recipes that pilots can make.

Mussel and Onion Stew.

This is piss easy but makes you look like a proper cook.

1. Chop up 3 or 4 Onions or more as small as you can. It's not important. Quarter them if you like. depending on how hungry you are.
2 Chuck 'em in a big fryingpan with about half a thing of garlic (8 segments or whatever) Munch them up first.
3. Fry with Olive oil (or at least not car oil) for 10 mins. try not to burn if you can unless you like burnt.
4. Chuck in some flour, butter and milk. Cream helps. Just use what works, it's not tricky but try to come up with a sort of thickish goo. You'll need to stir.
5. Add quite a lot of salt and some pepper. If it tastes pish add extra salt.

That's the hard bit done.

During the time that you were doing the above, drop a load of shelled mussels (5 / $8) into about 1 pint (500ml) of any old white wine.

Boil.

Chuck the wine and mussels into the saucey stuff and, leave in the oven for a bit.

Serve with garlic bread.

Keeps for ages.

This is going to be fun...

It'll be right up there with "DIY tasks pilots have a chance of completing successfully without outside help, guidance from their wife or some paper and glue thing done by their three year old"...

Thinly sliced veal (or pork) cut into strips then cooked in Campbell's condensed mushroom soup was the mainstay of our subsistence when we lived in the shadow of Luton Airport. That and minced beef sauteed until brown then a can of red kidney beans and chillie powder - return to pan and 'stew' (chilli-con-carne).

House rule was that whoever returned when no-one else was around was only allowed to consume half (no more).

Previously boiled potatoes were mashed and mixed with flour (and seasoning) then formed into flat 'patties' which were then fried in shallow lard - potato cakes.

Personally (when dining alone) I would opt for lamb chops which were grilled under a high heat so crispy on the outside but rare in the middle.

I now have a pot that turns itself off when the water is boiling. Found shortly before acquiring this device that the copper coating on the bottom of a tea kettle will flake off after heat is applied long enough...

Egg banjos.

They're not real if they don't have greasy paw prints on the outside and if they don't explode when taking that first bite.

Waste of wine old chap.The alcohol has a habit of evaporating when heated.

Sounds yummy. What's a caper?

You lost me at the "big saucepan" bit. A full bloody kettle
of boiled water would be too much for a saucepan. Did you
mean a "big pot"?

Now do you leave the pasta to settle in its own heat or have
the whole thing simmering on a low flame/temp?

I can knock off a stubby in 2 mins flat when I'm hungry. Is
that enough time before draining?

When I mix the pasta and other stuff is the pot still on the
stove when I do, or have I taken it off before mixing (if I
had to leave it on as per one of my prev questions)?

A caper, old chap,is somehing jolly; as when you screw your neighbour's wife. The opposite, a poor show, is when he screws yours.
