Chemo takes a couple of days to take effect, so in the meantime Mum has been bustling round the kitchen. A breadcrumbed, grilled mackerel recipe for her and Dad, yielded up some spare crumbs which I adapted for my own vegetarian needs.
Mix half and half rolled porridge oats/breadcrumbs.
Quorn chicken fillets or tofu cut to thin fillet shape.
Philadephia cheese (or soft white cheese).
Salt, pepper, mixed herbs.
Add a dash of mixed herbs to oats/breadcrumb mix, then add salt and pepper.
Open box of Philadelphia cheese, eat half of it with a teaspoon.
Wrestle back some self-control, and make a thick layer of the cheese over both sides of the fillet.
Add a layer of the oats/breadcrumb mix on top of the cheese layer.
Grill under a medium heat until breadcrumbs are nicely browned.
Two of the fillets I cooled and then froze for dinner later in the week. The other two went down rather nicely aided with a spot of mayonnaise to which I added a tiny dash of harissa paste.
