Above: Golden Syrup Steamed Pud. Perfect for when it's raining...which is every bloody day at the moment in Wellington!
I can't remember what I actually cooked for dinner that night, (ie, the meat component) but I do remember what I made on the side - a wonderful, wonderful thing called Pan Haggerty which comes from The Accidental Vegetarian. I know that some blogs post recipes but I'm not sure whether or not you need permission or something so you don't get sued. So, I won't give you the recipe but I will say this: (slowly) You thinly slice up potatoes and an onion, layer it in an oven dish, dot with butter, bake, then top with cheese and grill. Pa-dah! So good...I might make it again tonight. The photo below is a bit rubbish (especially in the context of the standards of the rest of the photos) but I thought I'd include it as it seems to convey the golden warmth of the potato-ey, cheesey dish.

By the way, this is what happened to the pudding. (not just Tim and me eating it though!Everyone except Emma - who is celiac- had some.)
