Friday food links – 8 May 2015

Morning world. Strawberry rhubarb porridge this morning. Glad to see the sun after storms overnight.

It feels a bit like we’re in limbo here at the moment. After a brief burst of warm weather in April, and then chilly temperatures again, most of this week has felt like neither winter or spring. The leaves are green, but we haven’t really had the little glimpses of summer that I associate with this time of year. So we are still eating stews, dal, porridge – the dishes of winter – and waiting for it to feel like it’s time for asparagus, peas, broad beans and artichokes.


Without a recipe:

  • Pinhead oatmeal porridge – made a batch, and reheated on several mornings this week
  • Sausages and jacket potatoes
  • Pizza – with confit tomatoes and roasted peppers
  • Lasagne – with slow cooker ragu from the freezer
  • Chicken Mole from the freezer (also slow cooker)
  • Chicken korma – Spice Tailor sauce
  • Slow cooker chicken stock

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
