Here's what we've eaten as "meal of the day" over the last week:
- Sunday: Haggis (as described before)
- Monday: Kidney Bean & Chorizo Risotto
- Tuesday: Vegetable Curry with Lemon Rice; accompanied by Banana & Avocado
- Wednesday: Sausage & Pasta in Tomato Sauce; with flaked Parmesan
- Thursday: Cheese, Chorizo & Mushroom Frittata; Ciabatta Rolls
- Friday: Stir-Fried Beef & Pasta Salad with Avocado, Tomato & Lamb's Lettuce
- Saturday: Beef Madras with Lemon Rice; also accompanied by Banana & Avocado
- And tonight promises Roast Chicken with Baked Potato, Steamed Buttered Savoy Cabbage & Fennel and Garlic Sauce.
The two beef dishes on Friday and Saturday were because I bought a good, reduced price (because of short use by date) piece of organic beef at the supermarket on Friday. This made me amend my original plan for Friday of Smoked Salmon and Pasta Salad.
Like all our cooking these dishes were made from fresh ingredients and in our own idiosyncratic way designed to be healthy(-ish), and quick & easy to do on the hob at the end of a working day. No buggering around with difficult cream sauces, 29 steps, three ovens, a grill and spun sugar. Good food doesn't have to be difficult, over fancy or time-consuming; and quick food doesn't have to be unhealthy.
Just as well, mind you, that we've eaten so well this week as I shall be condemned to survive of gutless rubbish next week as I have a series of medical tests (postponed from 2 weeks ago) which mean I have to have a special diet for a few days. Bummer!
