  1. I've just had peppers prepared this way, I think they are roasted and then marinated in oil and vinegar with lots of garlic. Absolutely delicious and the same kind of satisfaction and meatiness you get with steak, it was a side dish but I could see it being a really good veggie main dish
  2. I've recently rejoined after using lock-down and work from home as an excuse to splash out, nothing amazing but good enough. It's so nice to play all of the games I've been drooling over, or playing paired down console or IOS versions of them
  3. I've struggled with this despite being a big fan of the series, something tends to annoy me enough during a game that I end up making a new one, and then never get to the finish line. I think I just need to dedicate to finishing one. The main issue seems to be that I can't quite figure out the military tactics, how to take a city, what units to use against which, how best to defend if I'm not going after a military win. With previous versions it seemed to just be through enough units at a city and take, this seems a little more complex.
  4. Roasted aubergine, courgette, red onion and tomatoes with olive oil, garlic and rosemary. Served with my first attempt at homemade tzatziki which was absolutely banging.
  5. I've not managed this but I like a crispy shell so cook it for maybe longer then the minimum needed, opening up the legs so they're not pressed up against the body should help then cook quicker. To get crispy: pat the bird dry, score all over in a criss cross pattern just before the last of the fat breaks and rub sea salt in.
  6. With lemon and sugar
  7. I felt inspired by your pics of Chana Masala but didn't have any chickpeas so did pretty much the same recipe with cauliflower instead. Absolutely lovely
  8. I loved this and am definitely going to try and see some of his On hype, it's always nice to see a really good film without it, rather then be told this is amazing and then being well yes I guess it is, and it's ruined some films for me though thankfully not this one. But smaller and foreign language film rarely get seen by most people without it.
  9. Really enjoying it, 4 episodes in
  10. One genre that I feel Europe do so much better then the UK and US is romantic comedies and low key dramas. They're complicated, explore the human condition, have something you can actually connect with or relate too, and tend to have deeper female characters. I frustratingly can't remember many names but Perfect Strangers and Gloria stand out in my memory
  11. Quite disappointed with Mini Motorways, not just because it's the sequel of a much better game, but as a city building enthusiast I could feel what could have been a good game in it. The main problems are: traffic lights are useless, you don't get enough motorways, and there's not even a limited ability to move buildings or at-least change the entrance/exit of the warehouses/malls whatever they are. Meaning that the game time is very limited and to 'win' you need to partition colours off into isolated groups, meaning that it's not really a city building game anymore but a puzzle.
  12. Has anyone been playing Mini Motorways. So far it feels like a really nice sequel to Mini Metro
  13. It looks like we're going to see Frank Turner and Dropkick Murphys next year somewhere in Europe as they're touring together. So that's no 40 quid tickets out the window ha but it's two acts we want to see and we'll make a trip out of it
  14. I've got tickets for Cat Empire and Dubioza Kolektiv booked for early next year. Both great bands that you can really dance to. Sadly and stupidly missed out on Chemical Brothers and they have no dates yet for next year But I'd love to go to more that aren't 40 quid a pop. Anything that you can have a good stomp to, I particularly like brass, gypsy, jazz or Celtic inspired punk and rock. I'm guessing that New Cross is a good shout
