George’s Potato Yoghurt Salad

George’s Potato Yoghurt Salad

Ingredients

2 large potatoes (cut into medium sized chunks)

3 tbsps of yoghurt (I used thick goats yoghurt, Greek Yoghurt would be equally as nice, but any will do)

1/2 a tin of chickpeas- rinse so they are not too salty

Small chunk of fresh ginger – finely diced

Handful of coriander, de-stalked and chopped

Handful of sultanas

Squeeze of lemon juice

Sprinkle of seasoning

Method

Cut the potatoes into evenly sized chunks and place in a saucepan. Cover in a kettle of boiling water. Bring to boil. Turn down and boil for a further 10-12 minutes. Then leave to cool.

Place potato in a bowl, and add ginger, coriander, chickpeas, sultanas and lemon juice. Season. Add enough yoghurt just to coat the potatoes. This should be around 3 tbsps, but put in however much you think best.

Enjoy :-)

Raspberry And Yoghurt Ice Cream

I got an ice cream maker earlier this month; A Magimix De Glacier, with a 1.1 litre freezer bowl. So far Ive made two ice creams with it. The first was made with coconut milk, and it was not as such ice cream… but a slab of ice… So this time we decided we’d make try and get a better consistency and texture, using yoghurt! Following a recipe that came in the box with my ice cream maker, we made a Raspberry and Yoghurt Ice Cream (Surely that’s a frozen yoghurt? :-) ) . Anyway, sweet, but taut, and actually looking and tasting very ice cream like, I was pretty pleased with it :-) Here’s the recipe:

Raspberry Ice Cream (2)

Raspberry Ice Cream (3)

Ingredients-

250g Raspberries

100g Caster Sugar

3ooml Yoghurt (We used St. Helen’s Goats Yoghurt, which has a thick and creamy texture; maybe this helped with the texture of the ice cream)

-

We served it with chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips. You could just as easily add these to the actual ice cream; just churn the ice cream for 10 minutes, add the chocolate chips/chopped hazelnuts, and churn for another 1o minutes.

Gman’s Ramblings- NEW ABOUT ME ILLUSTRATION / POSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy new year everyone ;-)

Now, last April, I posted my page, “About Me And This Blog”. It has now come to have 960 Likes, 839 Comments, and 23 Votes! :D

Now, I’ve changed a lot over the past year. So much, in fact, that today I decided, I would make a new About Me Poster in the same style as the last… a new and updated version. Well, here it is:

about me 2013 finished

Now, I’m not going to replace the other About Me Poster on my “About Me And This Blog” page. That would be wrong, as it was the old poster that each of the people that liked my page have viewed. What I’m going to do is decrease it in size, label as “About Me Poster 2012″ and add my new poster at the top. Does that sound OK?
