So its been a while. Every day will be complete before new years 2014 bit at the moment new house has taken over. Can’t wait to get cooking in the new kitchen. For now it will have to be when possible. Oh well.
Another resolution of mine was to get fit this year. We’ve got parties and weddings coming up and I want tiny clothes. So this week I stocked up the fridge with plenty of greenery. Today recipe is going to be made up by yours truly. Be nice.
Chicken Ratatouille Stew
2 pieces of chicken
1 pack of chunk med veg
Pasta for two
What To Do
In a caserole dish put the med veg and chicken. Add a generous amount of tomato puree. Cover with passata.
Stick in the oven for 30-40 mins.
Cook up some pasta. Take out the chicken. Mix the pasta through the veg and sauce and put the chicken on top.
So it is Shrove Tuesday. Also known as Pancake Day. I believe the idea was to clear out your ‘bread’ before fasting for Lent. Lent will hopefully feature a little more this moth as well as I’m making a foody change and will be experimenting in the kitchen. Today however I’m serving up good old pancakes.
Easy to prepare, hard to pull off with great skill. Here goes.
Seasoning – sweet or savoury, I like both.
And it is that simple. You can go down the traditional route of sugar and lemon or the increasingly popular chocolate spread. I love a savoury cheese – like you couldn’t guess.
I don’t measure this, sorry. I just start with 2-3 eggs, whisked. Add milk and flour while continuing to whisk until you get a batter-ey consistency.
Butter a frying pan. I prefer the crisp it gives the edges compared to oil. Fry on one side, toss, fry on other side.
Fill, roll, eat.
And that’s pancakes over for another year. Don’t forget to try whipped cream and maple syrup either.
