Friday food links – 3 July 2015

Salad for dinner. Yes, it has chicken, bacon and egg in, but still a salad!

It has been a hot and sunny week in London, a heatwave in English-weather-speak. A taste of living in a different climate, and a chance to try out those holiday eating rhythms at home, or to pretend we live in the Hamptons, or Santa Monica, or Italy. Lots of tomatoes and cucumber. Watermelon. Avocado. Ice cream or lollies for desserts. Some grilled meat, but nothing needing the oven. For once, it’s a relief to relax into the wather, knowing that it’s not going away tomorrow, and to feel that the ice-cream stash in the freezer is justified (for once).


Without a recipe:

  • Chopped cucumber and tomato salad
  • Tacos with black beans, leftover pulled pork and avocado
  • Meatballs (from the freezer) with tomato sauce over pasta
  • A big Cobb salad, or something approximating it (see photo above)
