Friday food links – 5 June 2015

Lettuce (chomping snails not shown)

June already? Well, at least in the last couple of days we’ve had a taste of summer, so it feels like the weather is catching up with the calendar again. This week has been a catch-as-catch-can week for dinners, scraping together all sorts of odds and ends to get us through a busy week, and one where bedtime has taken even longer than usual. A roast chicken on Sunday stood us in good stead. Another batch of white chili (this time without the chicken, as it had gone off before I got to it) did duty another night. And, last night, M&S pizza filled the gap. Hoping to get back on track this weekend, with some batches of food for next week, bread and granola.


Without a recipe:

  • Chicken salad – with stuffing crumbs, moonblush tomatoes, cucumber and radish
  • M&S Pizza
  • Fresh filled pasta with tomato sauce
  • Chicken curry

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.
