Default what I cooked yesterday and last week!

HI there
Thought I'd show you what I cooked last sunday and this - I'm teaching myself to cook in the wood oven
Last Sunday
I cooked a briam - like ratatouille but Greek version (minus eggplants/aubergines - hate the things)
stuffed tomatoes - Greek style (what can I say - it's where I learned to cook!) the tomatoes were too juicy - hence there's too much liquid - this did reduce once they'd cooled.
Chicken and potatoes (last sunday and this - youngest refuses to try my other efforts!

This Sunday
chicken wings in my spicy BBQ sauce (which I made up with whatever I had in the cupboards - still tasted nice!)
then the chicken and potatoes
followed by a beef stew (for today) with red wine etc which I put in in the afternoon and left for 7 hrs - my oven is shop bought and doesn't retain heat probably as well as it should.

Have to say I impress myself!!!!!! Just have to learn not to use too much wood like I did yesterday and the chicken cooked at super speed!
If anyone wants me to tell them the recipes (all made up in my mind) be glad to!

Default Re: what I cooked yesterday and last week!

Bit late in the day - but I don't use a thermometer - but light the oven and keep it lit till dome is white - then I let the flame go out - push the ashes to the sides/back - leave to cool slightly and cook in order of what I would in a normal oven (highest temp first etc)
Briam first:
I used
sliced courgettes (zucchini)
sliced onions
green bell peppers sliced
thinly sliced potatoes
2 cloves garlic - sliced
2 tins chopped tomatoes
tsp sugar
loads of freshly chopped parsley
dried oregano
plenty salt/black pepper
3tbsp olive oil (or if you are Greek - glug glug glug!)
throw everything in baking pan - top with water (to top of veg) mix
pour over olive oil and bake in oven without foil or lid (close door)- you'll see when it's cooked
Serve with feta cheese and crispy fresh bread.
