Chipotle and Pork should be Married

Chipotle and Pork should be Married

Actually, it is probably more true to say that chipotle and *I* should be married! But seriously – how good is that smokey flavour, the heat that creeps up on you but doesn’t overpower… ahhhhh chipotle you have been one of my favs for years and years. I’m glad Aussie palettes are finally getting the opportunity to fall in love with (and totally embrace) chipotle.

The Fussy Foodie just got Fussy-er

The Fussy Foodie just got Fussy-er

Wow – I hadn’t realised it had been so long since I last shared here. I managed to log back into my account today and I even have some posts in draft that were not quite finished, for whatever reason. In recent news, me, Sill, The Fussy Foodie has had to get a bit more fussy about my food because I was diagnosed as a T2 diabetic just on two months ago (July 2017). Since then (and if you clicked that link you’ll see) I have been blogging that journey and now I’m finding more and more that my food world and diabetic worlds are colliding (well… yeah, they kind of have to develop a harmonious relationship, but I mean in a blogging sense!).

OMG Delish Sticky Pork Spareribs

OMG Delish Sticky Pork Spareribs

I drove past our local butcher (where I must confess… I rarely shop…) on Tuesday and saw a special on pork spare ribs; ‘must remember to go back and get those at some point’ I thought and wow, I did remember!
Yesterday was my day off work so I knew I could dedicate a bit of time to marinating and preparation so I bought 2kg of the ribs. Now to find a recipe – originally I thought I’d do them American BBQ style however I have done a lot of those flavours lately. The other flavours that (to me) goes beautifully with pork are Asian. I did a quick search and came across Donna Hay’s Sticky Pork Spare Ribs… that’ll work. I bought 2kg of the ribs but just wanted to try this on half (maybe the others will get the American BBQ treatment after all!) so I halved the original recipe’s quantities.

Beef Brisket and Bourbon BBQ Sauce

Beef Brisket and Bourbon BBQ Sauce

Wow what a week! I haven’t blogged many (um… any) meals this week as it really has just been me and the kids home. My husband has recently started travelling for work and he is away the first half of each week so I really only get to cook up on the weekends.

I met a friend at Costco on Wednesday and saw a big bit of beef that would do well slow cooked and turned into brisket – I couldn’t wait until Saturday!
