I was planning to make canneloni tonight, but instead of being a good girl on my day off and doing housework and going to spinning class, I sat on my arse and watched Californication and Entourage instead. So I needed something that was a bit less of an effort for dinner.
I went for some tvp mince and mashed taters. Easy, quick and pretty good. I also learned that gravy browning has to be mixed with water first and can't just be sprinkled into to hot mince as you get gross brown lumps that you then have to spent 10 minutes picking out with a spatula if you do that! grr.
I had some buttercream left from the viennese whirls so I HAD to make some more biscuits! I used a recipe for shortbread that I found on get sconed, only I had to use 3 cups of flour not two - as it was way too soft to roll out. I think it's because the margarine I use is a lot softer so next time, I'm going to try cutting the margarine by a third and see if that helps.
I also added some lemon zest and lemon extract to the dough and cut them out as butterflies. I added some lemon zest to the buttercream and some ground ginger and sandwiched the biccies together. They are super YUMMO and were perfect with a coffee.
Cooking to: AC/DC - Black Ice (did I mention I got AC/DC tickets for April? HURRAAAHHH)
