Radio is blaring out Motorhead’s version of Sympathy for the Devil, and I am contemplating the sweetheart cabbage, lying forlornly in the wok wot does double duty as a vegetable bowl. Nigel Slater to the rescue! This was tasty and left an decent amount of parmesan sauce that I am scheming how to reuse tomorrow night…..*
*the aubergine tries quietly to sidle under the red onions, unaware that they will share its fate…..mwah hah hah….
Another one, this time a nut and bean roast. A little luxurious with the artichoke hearts and chestnuts, perhaps one to save for a special occasion…..?
Six-day work weeks. Gotta love ’em…pphhzzarrghhhh *collapses*. However the days are getting longer and sunnier, and it’s nice to sense the faint “Beep!…..whirrrrrrrrrr…” that is Nature rebooting itself for another Spring.
Managed to get a full weekend off, and spent most of it cooking furiously in the manner of a devoted foodie who has been living off quick and easy noodle stirfries for the past month. The Grauniad newspaper rose to the challenge with several delicious vegetable/nut roasts, and first up is my version of a chickpea and vegetable roast….
(Hopefully photo later, camera being re-charged…)
(Update; no photo, obviously too busy eating to tend to the pictorial needs of this blog…)
A good, cheap 3-days-until-payday bake, using store cupboard staples (particularly relevant for January, the Official Month of 3-Days Till Payday). Nothing too sophisticated but moreish and goes down well with a spot of ketchup!
This is a little more complicated than normal, but very, very moreish….
