    Leftovers for lunch from last night's copycat KFC meal. Chicken was lightened by using the air fryer instead of deep fryer. Slaw was lightened up by replacing half the mayo with yoghurt. Spice mixture from the Chicago Tribune recipe where I substituted corn meal for the flour.

    Grilled steak and sausages. I stick to lettuce and green beans for vegetables.

    Katsu curry. We have a company called spice entice that sells the spices, you just need to get the other bits. Rather than coating the chicken and having it crispy though I just put everything in the slow cooker and it was lovely. Took it into work to eat and colleagues were jealous :)

    Fried rice for breakfast. Hispi cabbage, a chinese sausage, leftover rice, soy, garlic and a pinch of sugar.

    I started some homemade beef vegetable soup early this morning with every kind of vegetable. I made some cornbread to go with it and all of it will be ready in two shakes. I don't put sugar in my cornbread because after all, it's not cake. I use a well-seasoned cast iron skillet to bake the cornbread in. Real butter for the cornbread.

    I only post in this thread when I make a disaster, lol.

    Anyway, I made some stew last night and it turned out pretty bad. The vegetables are fine, the sauce... eh, I used canned tomato sauce because I'm lazy so it's pretty sugary and nasty, but the seasonings, dill and garlic I added mostly balance it out so it's okay.

    But the meat is just... not good. The acidity didn't break it down nearly as much as it should have, the seasonings didn't seep in at all and the meat wasn't the best quality to begin with. In short, it tastes like bland, tough, boiled low-grade beef :s

    Not sure what went wrong... Pork usually treats me better than beef but it's harder to find stew pork meat. Here's hoping it'll improve as leftovers...
