Air Fryer CATCH UP

(04/01/19: ETA Chocolate Fondants)

Don’t want to bore anybody but don’t wish to let down anyone who is actually following this stuff, so I’m just doing a quick summary of the Air Fryer Adventures. Move on now if you have no interest.

The spreadsheet is now updated, more or less. I have of course left it too long to be able to remember essential details of time and temperature, and I apologise for this. There have been other meals in the fryer but I see no point in repeating notes once the nitty gritty has been firmed up. I’m just noting down the new recipes.

Here follows a small gallery of the more interesting items produced recently.

Confit Duck, Nov 2018
Piri-Piri Chicken 17/12/18
Bacalhau com Natas 25/12/18
Bacalhau com Natas 25/12/18
Grilled marinated chicken 27/12/18
Fried new potatoes 31/12/18 – the Coq au Vin was cooked in Mr D’s Thermal Cooker (more of this, later)
Chocolate Fondant Pudding, served with Dulche du Leche, Cream and Toasted Walnuts

In addition, there was a dish of fried Halloumi with couscous but the photo came out sub-par and I am not sharing that one. I have shared the Duck Confit even though that has been covered previously but, you know, it just came out looking so very good… All of the above were cooked in the van on our travels.

I have full step by step photos of Christmas dinner and the Bacalhau com Natas, if anybody wants me to share, please ask or I may never get around to it.

Hot, hot, hot

I really am a poor blogger these days, aren’t I? Sorry. The notion that I would keep a Nature Diary here soon fell by the wayside. A pity, that. Perhaps I will try again next year, The thing is, we packed ourselves up and wandered off in the van again and when we came back we were, for various reasons, at a low ebb. Energy has been lacking and especially the mental variety. I amContinue readingHot, hot, hot



Having chosen to live in France, I try hard to live French. I really do not want to be that Brit – the one that moans how they can’t get such-and such in France or that some-other from the UK is better… Certainly, in my humble Brit opinion, there is so much here that is better than back in Blighty. Bread and butter for one two things, for instance. However, I do have a beef:Continue readingB-B-B-B-B-Bovril

It’s coming…

It’s coming…

We are getting ever closer to our new van. It is supposedly 13 days away. I say “supposedly” because we have been here before and I shall not quickly forget the horrors of last year when Mr Snail had to stay near Paris for several nights after travelling up on the train at 6am and… Continue reading It’s coming…

Well, that was unexpected…

Well, that was unexpected…

I was confiding that Heidi’s days with us are numbered, we had picked out our new van and that Mr Snail was taking her to Cognac to get a PX price… Things did not go to plan. Heidi was looking gorgeous, considering her age, and we both agreed that the fact that they had asked… Continue reading Well, that was unexpected…
