    Think I'm going to go for Chinese style with the pork belly and boil it in stock first.
    It will the be marinaded and roasted in the oven after.


    Hmmm, not a job for today, as I have chicken soup to make
    got a recipe for that? sounds rather scrumptious.

    The Alfa isn't a hooligan tool, although the Skoda Ateca is.
    Hooligans don't buy Alfas because they were told that 40 years ago Alfas rusted, therefore they must be very unreliable today.

    So, why rule out the Levante/Jag/Merc?

    Gnoll Park closed.

    Cemetery closed.

    Footpaths closed.

    I thought we were supposed to be getting exercise?

    Walked all the way up the unclosed road to the top pond.

    Sadly enough, the toad/frog spawn I put in the "everlasting" puddle proved futile as the puddle wasn't "everlasting" in the recent drought.

    Ho hum.

    Still I tried.

    Better to have tried and failed that never to have tried at all.

    The Leg complained a bit at the top, but seems ok at the moment, thanks for asking.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    Sure

    It's going to be similar to this one.....

    Sticky Chinese Pork Belly PLUS VIDEO! - Nicky's Kitchen Sanctuary

    Apart from:

    Ill leave the pork belly slices whole and boil in stock as per the above recipe.

    Once boiled in stock I will apply a similar marinade, brown sugar, honey, a little cider vinegar (as I have no rice wine), garlic, ginger, maybe some 5 spice, salt and pepper.

    Chilly doesn't work well for the Mrs, so will leave that out.

    Preferably, Ill leave overnight marinading in the fridge.

    Will then roast at 180, rather than fry, probably will be around 40 minutes or so. YMMV.

    The Korean place up the road does excellent ribs, but due to lack of work, for both of us, I'm not paying anyone to cook for me, ATM.

    The good news on that front is the Mrs. application to be a BCS assessor is progressing well.
    For one student a portfolio assessment takes a day, which pays £500 and can done from home on a sole trader basis.

    Because I like the Audi Q7 and the Volvo XC90.

    I used to have an Alfa Romeo 164 Cloverleaf - As far as I'm concerned the Stelvio Quadrifoglio *is* a hooligan tool. YMMV.

    Currently watching the ebay clock ticking down on a rather nice looking Rover P4 110.

    I've not bid on it.

    £3200.

    Bargain.

    Looks nice too.

    If the government had created the "stay at home" challenge and put it on Facebook, the virus would be gone by now...
