It’s not often that I don’t post something about baking, but I figured it was about time I gave the more student-y among us some suggestions of easy quick and cheap dinner ideas.

This is a really tasty dish, that contains things that you should mostly already already have in a store cupboard, and is pretty hard to mess up, you can also add and take away things you don’t like, which is the beauty of this dish.

Ingredients:

casserole-ingredients

  • Pack of chicken
  • Half a ring of Chorizo
  • 1 onion, diced – personally I use red, but white will do just as well
  • ~250g mushrooms, halved and sliced  – I use chestnut, but again, most will do
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 150g olives, sliced – less if you don’t like olives
  • 2x 390g cartons of Italian seasoned chopped tomatoes
  • 100ml chicken stock, made with one stock cube
  • a large tin of new potatoes (~350g), cubed
  • Pepper and herbs, to taste

Method:

  1. Fry the chicken and chorizo until golden, remove from the pan and set aside.pre-cooked chicken and chorizo
  2. Fry onions until transparent, then add mushrooms, and finally garlic.'shrooms, garlic and onion
  3. Add olives, tomatoes and potatoes, then return chicken and chorizo to the pan.
  4. Add stock and season to taste.
  5. Cover and simmer for around 15mins, until the chicken is tender.
  6. Serve with bread if it’s a bit sloppy.Finished Casseole

Beetroot Muffins

If you ask anyone who remotely knows me, they’ll tell you I fracking love beetroot. I have roasted it, I’ve put it in pies, eaten it pickled, and fresh. I love it’s sweet, earthy taste, it’s vibrant colour, and how versatile it is (not only can you eat the beet, but you can cook the leaves, or use it as a dye). So you can understand why I was pretty excited when I found this recipe while I was looking for candidates for my breakfast muffins.

And how disappointed I was, when I discovered that I don’t like them.

From launching the game, it is clear that Warsow is very much aimed at competitive play. From the initial screen being a news feed of esports events to bot games being hidden behind the online play, Warsow makes it very clear what it aims to do. But does it do it well? Continue reading

During yesterday’s G3 Originals show, we discussed the current state of the station.

There is the link to the full show podcast, but the discussion starts around 1 hour in and lasts for about 30 mins if you want to skip to the pertinent part.

I had prepared a report, which you can read here, but the basic TL;DR is we did very very poorly in 2014 compared to other years. Listeners, website page views, donations and staff were all down. In January last year we made a list of things we wanted to get fixed, but only managed about a quarter of the tasks.

If we want to make 2015 a far better year we need to have a serious look at what we’re doing, what we want, and generally need a motivational kick up the arse. So, to start things off, I’ve made a Listener Survey. If you’re interested in guiding the direction of the station and providing your views, please take 5 mins to fill it out. As always, if you want to share ideas and suggestions in general, you can e-mail us at info@g3-radio.net.

In the mean time, we’ll be pouring over the results and let you know by the end of the month were we’re aiming for in the year ahead.
