I’ve been all out of kilter this week. Things have been undersalted or oversalted. I’ve forgotten keys, books, cakes. I’ve mismeasured ingredients and forgotten pans. Something isn’t right. I have tried to reset myself by getting out for a couple of runs, more for the solitude than the exercise. And setting up some pages for the start of August in my bullet journal. Here’s hoping that puts things to rest for next week.
- Chili Lime Fish Tacos – Pinch of Yum
- Paprika roast chicken – Diana Henry’s A Bird in the Hand
- Claire Ptak’s Nectarine and Cherry cobbler
- Meera Sodha’s Mum’s chicken curry from Made in India – so good
- Spiced spring vegetables from Made in India
Without a recipe:
- Baked cod with breadcrumbs, chips and carrot, cabbage and daikon slaw
- Pasta with pesto
- Cheese, challah toast and jam (yes, it’s dinner – don’t judge)
- Black bean and cheese quesadillas
Reading (and listening):
The Kitchen Sisters produce a brilliant Radiotopia podcast called Fugitive Waves. The episode I listened to this week is a brilliant example of what they do so well. It combines an interview with George Foreman about his childhood, and how he became ‘King of the Grill’ with stories of people in shelters and hostels using his grill to cook when they don’t have access to a kitchen.
