it makes a good stew. might seem loony to test a hatchet by making a stew but you never know if it will be needed

I'll see if there is some left (supposedly someone put gnocci in it so it lasts longer as a sauce because I made it thicker)

I was in my 30's before I discovered hot & spicy, mother was an excellent cook but didn't do hot.

These days just about everything I eat gets covered in Cayenne pepper. Salt, black pepper, Cumin, Cinnamon and lots and lots of Cayenne on just about everything  :salute:

I believe that was the case with curries in India... I could be wrong though (unbelievable, I know).

well the general consensus is that stews make the worst meats very tasty, especially if they have a bit of kick to 'em

Well I'm fat, FOS, so there, proof I can cook!  :drink: 

I quite like Indian food, recently had an Indian consultant here for 2 weeks, went to one of the local restaurants and had a blast........he gave instructions more than placing orders, and I really enjoyed trying stuff I would usually not order simply because I don't know what it is.....

Tonight will be crumbed chicken breast strips covered in cream and......you guessed it, cayenne pepper!  :gimme:

Last night was Zebra steak with garlic, onion and button mushrooms.......some feta cheese crumbled over that.

I know it might seem funny to many of you, but in some places in our country Zebra are quite a nuisance!  They are protected and I've been told it's very difficult to get a permit, but there is one shop where I occasionally get Zebra, most of the time Oryx.

I don't eat beef anymore, not that I don't like it, it doesn't like me! Gout......
Cattle farming is however very harmful to the ecology, and I wish more effort would be put into sustainably using wild game.

We are a nation of meat eaters across all cultures  :facepalm:

i agree with the farming part. especially the mass produced food industry (meats, vegetables...) is a bit of a hot mess.

but i'm still willing to try out different foods for the most part. there are some that i probably wouldn't have the stomach for

I only recently (as in a few weeks ago) found out how cattle promote bush encroachment locally.........

I will try just about anything except silly smurf like eating live animals etc. 

During my survivorman phase I tried bugs, grasshoppers are good, and the exception to what I said is a winged termite that we get before the rain.....those I catch in flight and eat just to freak people out  :rofl: Nice, sweet little snacks  :gimme:

Finally managed to get a chance to use the wonderful tool Sparky sent. They cut down a tree in my neighbourhood so I helped myself to a few pieces for yet to be determined projects.

Step 1 was debarking and as you can see the hatchet and Mora did a fast and nice job (I'll remove the inner bark when it dries out a bit)


Now to figure out 2 things - does this count towards the axe user badge and what projects to take on
