I Made It Challenge – November 2013

I’ve been invited by Tandy over at Lavender and Lime to host the November 2013 instalment of her I Made It Challenge series. With the last three challenges being nougat, cassoulet and mission impossible (!), I knew I wanted to choose something simple yet still impressive. Something I’ve been wanting to try, but just haven’t gotten around to.

I Made It

After thinking about it for awhile it finally came to me. Paneer! A squeaky fresh cheese that I’ve most often encountered in Indian cuisine. I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making this for the longest time, but being the supreme procrastinator that I am, just hadn’t gotten to it yet.

So my challenge to you it to make your own paneer and use it in a dish of your choice. I will probably be following the instructions over on The Kitchn or wikiHow, but you are welcome to follow whichever recipe/instructions you feel most comfortable with.

I hope you enjoy taking part in the challenge this month and most importantly that you have fun making your own paneer.

Ready Steady Cook Challenge

Ready Steady Cook Challenge

A while back Lady Raven over at Add to Taste decided to host a blog challenge based on the popular BBC program Ready Steady Cook. The basic premise of her challenge being, bloggers signing up would be supplied with a list of seven ingredients by a fellow blogger. They would then have to create a three course meal using these ingredients and a list of allowed “pantry” items.

I signed up and was partnered with Sam from Oven Loving, this is the list of ingredients she gave me:

  • Beef
  • Beetroot
  • Bacon
  • Brinjal
  • Brie
  • Butter beans
  • Banana

Over the next few days I will be posting the three courses of my entry.  You can keep up-to-date with entries from all the contestants in Lady Raven’s round-up post.


Hi there…

Welcome to the new home of Wots For Lunch?, feel free to have a look around and let me know what you think.

I’ve migrated posts going back to the beginning of January this year from Letterdash and am thinking of leaving the previous three year’s worth of posts there as a kind of archive.  Don’t be too alarmed if things change a little over the next few weeks as I tweak the look and feel to find my perfect fit.

If you have any comments or suggestions please leave a comment or contact me directly via email.

Happy lunching
