I heard on the TV that most people who regularly cook for their families have a repertoire of 7 recipes that they regularly trot out. I had a think and felt like I may have become a bit samey. SO, with the help of Good food magazine I got cooking. Vegetable curry.
Now, I’m not a bad cook but I do have a style. If you come for dinner you will get something that looks after itself while I spend time with you pretty much drinking wine and laughing. Not for me the endless hours in the kitchen pan frying, I’ll do it all beforehand. Don’t get me wrong I am going to go all out for you and yes we will have 3 courses and more wine. If you’re not full and drunk I’m not happy. So I am some what of a siege cook. I tend to cook once feed 12. The freezer is my friend. I guess you’d call them ready meals, which my lovely brother would shudder at. Cooked from scratch by my fair hand? I often have 2 sittings to contend with (modern life) and some days I don’t even want to eat let alone get creative.
Eating veggie always involves so much chopping.
Aubergine, squash and potato in 2 tbsp tikka masala paste
Sauce made with onion, coconut and tomato.
Courgette and my own peppers added.
Plop away then cartoned up for another day. We will have some tonight with rice and homemade nans . I also tried a recipe I found in an old magazine I found while tidying. It was a Christmassy one, spiced mixed nuts. They taste lovely and will keep for a month.
Yesterday was bouncing down with rain so I was at home and have made sweet corn relish. Boy it does not look good but tastes lovely and goes well with a barbecue burger. Sally (dog) and I will put on the fire and hook after we have done the ironing. Hope you enjoy your day. Stay cosy peeps.
