    Finished mango coconut ice cream the next morning. This is a useful easy dessert that can be whipped up from store cupboard ingredients. I added a shot of vodka which helps the ice cream not to freeze too solid, so that it is scoopable taken right out of the freeer.

    Next time I might try the same 2 to 1 mix of tinned pineapple to coconut cream, along with lime juice to taste and a shot of rum for a pina colada ice cream. Just blitz everything together and freeze. Also might freeze this in a large metal roasting tin instead of a 2 litre plastic box which should shorten the setting time. Once I have a trayful of slush I can transfer to a plastic food storage box.
    Oh I bet the vodka is why it was still a bit soupy at 8 hours in yesterday. That makes a lot of sense. Looks tasty though.

    +1. I'd like to try it with one watermelon and one mango. Freezer is packed full, so I would need to use that up prior to attempting this.

    I made this with a 800g tin of mango and a 400g tin of coconut milk and I really like it. Will try it with coconut cream next time, as specified by the recipe.

    I was busy yesterday so I had the slow cooker going! (And made dozen hard boiled eggs in pressure cooker)

    Seasoned Pork shoulder, white onions and green salsa all in one. After a long day, shredded it and ate with romaine lettuce. Nice tang and saltiness. It's going to be my lunch for the week :)

    Roasted salmon marinated in lemon juice, lemon zest, grated ginger, grated garlic, harissa, and a little bit of sugar. The recipe called for orange juice and zest but I had a bunch of lemons and zero oranges - it would have been better with orange juice. In addition, I roasted waxy potatoes that I sliced thinly on the mandolin.

    Lunch was a salmon burger which was ok but I realized that I don't actually like salmon between two slices of bread. The salmon was great though and really well seasoned.
