My lover told me to make something special for Easter. I wanted to make rabbit in honour of the Easter bunny, but that was banned. The kill joy.
I still can’t find baby leeks. So to console myself I savagely beat some chicken breasts after work.
I have no idea what a baby leek is. I’m assuming it’s a really really young one, but I can’t seem to be able to buy one. So I cracked open half a kilo of frozen peas and cooked this instead. Take that Jamie Oliver.
So I’m not nailing my colours to the mast and saying that spring has sprung, but its not far off! I’ve replanted my window boxes after killing my winter plants, and as a bonus; some crocuses I thought I’d killed last year have come back out for another year 🙂
I won’t lie to you, last week was a long, hard and tiring to make. I also had Moussaka three times. When it came to actually getting the pans out at the end of the week for some tomato-ey pasta I realised that I needed to add something new and quick to my week-night repertoire. Something lightning quick I could whip up
before sitting in my chair and watching Geordie Shore re-runs and Netflix boxsets with a pack of biscuits until bedtime when I get in from work.
Normally when I attempt a recipe I halve it so I have a sane amount of food for me and him. I’m not sure why I didn’t do it this time… This week, I have mainly eaten moussaka.
So this week when it came to choosing a new recipe to cook all my wild ideas of reaching for Madha Jaffery or the Wagamama’s book were hampered by my lover having a massive stomach ache, which was caused by lashings of gin. (more…)
As the title suggests, its Duck l’Orange, but with fizzy orange juice. As the title should also suggest, this weeks meal came from Rachel Khoo again! Hurrah! (more…)
What’s this? The first pudding post in 7 months? And on a Friday? It must be Fiesta Friday’s first anniversary! (more…)
