A great recipe I tried out, which Tim and I thoroughly enjoyed, was the Pumpkin and Luncheon Meat Combo.
Delicious ripe pumpkins were easily available at Coles, and I snapped up the ripest Kent pumpkin I could find for this recipe. A can of SPAM, some dried shrimps, lots of shallots, toss them all in, stir-fry up a storm, and voila! A hot, yummylicious meal on a cold winter's night. I chose a pumpkin of the brightest orange I could find as that would guarantee sweetness of the pumpkin. It wasn't easy removing the tough skin from the pumpkin though. A lot of near accidents there, that I'd tell you.
I don't normally create great successes when it comes to food, but I have to say this was a real achievement. It was absolutely delicious, and I was so excited about it that I immediately took a photograph of the dish and emailed it to Pablopabla (the author of the blog), raving about his recipe. That was just a little over a month ago.
From then on, I continued trying out his recipes, and so far, each had been a success.
