Receiving A Little Love. Sharing a Little Food.

My post about the lovely things Joy sent to me is over at The Teapot.
Suffice to say, Pomme & Bib were very excited about A BOX!!!!!!!

It's my box! Mine, I tell you!

No, I think you'll find it's MY box!


Yesterday's quick curry, using chorizo, was okay, but nothing to write home about. I'm not sure it's a recipe I'll be using again, however.

TODAY: We're having a recipe that I found on the Innocent Smoothies website, which no longer exists. (the site does, but not the page) It purports to provide 3 of your five-a-day. Falafels with imam bayaldi and tzatziki. I'm possibly going to make some Jamie Oliver garlic and herb flatbreads too. This recipe gives the falafels and this one gives the imam bayaldi and tzatziki (just ignore the steps which include lamb!!) I think it's all yummy enough so Mr FD doesn't roll his eyes and say "Wot, no meat?" But I do have some chicken spring rolls to have as a starter, which were on special offer at Carrefour!
 

SUNDAY: Basque Chicken from the Sainted Delia. I've cooked this several times and it is nom-nom delicious! It has peppers in it, but we'll also have roasted chicory (which is a new discovery for me. I love it!) and some carrots to pump up the vegetables.

MONDAY: Crispy salmon with leeks and courgettes - probably with some sautéed potatoes too. It's a quick recipe as I don't get home till quitelate on Mondays.

TUESDAY: Chicken with chilli and leeks - Cook two onions & 2 leeks in a smidge of oil until soft. Add 2 chicken breasts & cook for 3 - 4 minutes. Add 2 tbsp chilli jam/ sweet chilli sauce. Mix together. Pop in a casserole dish. Stick in the oven (190°C) for about 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked. We're having this with some sweet potato wedges and green beans.
 
:WEDNESDAY Penne with leeks and salami We appear to be eating our body weight in leeks this week. I hope I've bought enough!! We'll have this with a chicory-and-blood-orange salad.

THURSDAY: Dead-easy salami tart with a tomato, onion & chickpea salad
Unroll a sheet of ready made puff pastry. Fold the edges over to give a "rim". Prick base all over with a fork. Spread with a jar of aubergine pesto/ home made (or otherwise) tomato sauce/whatever is in the fridge. Arrange slices of salami and tomato on top. Bake at 200°C for 20-25 minutes.

FRIDAY: Griddled aubergine & courgette gratin. It's a fast day so Mr FD will have to lump the no-meatiness of this. He can have a slice of ham with it, if it offends him so much!


I will reply to your comments but Blogger (or maybe my computer!) is being dead slow today and I'm getting verry frustrated. TTFN. Back later!
