We had monkfish cheeks wrapped in parma ham, baked on roasted taters, veggies & chorizo.
Buuurp.

We had Gurnard fillets, baked in foil with a bit of lemon and butter, with carrots, spinach and a few Charlotte potatoes from our (very) meagre crop.

Tonight it will be beefburgers.

For tonight I am making squab pie* (which doesn't actually contain any pigeon). Mutton, apple, onion, sultanas, spice. Was supposed to be a 'diet' version with crumpled filo pastry on, but the pack of frozen filo turns out to be puff pastry. Oh dear, what a shame, never mind.

*: based on this recipe, but modified when MrsC, who is Cornish, insisted I check all her Cornish recipe books as well, hence the addition of the spice and the sultanas.

I had leftovers when I got in from my ride, which was a Caribbean style curry, featuring kidney beans, sweet potato and coconut milk.

That didn't satiate me so I ordered salt & pepper tofu & mushroom rice from the Chinese at the end of my road.

I went shopping & came back with all manner of tasty meat things.   Then got sidetracked & ended up having spaghetti with asparagus & home made pesto.  Strawberries & cheese to follow.

Remains of last night's fridge curry.  Mmm perfect.  All the sharp corners knocked off and the depth of spice and flavour so improved and rounded.
Why don't we cook all our curries several days ahead?

I've just done the charred tomatoes thing again , this time with lamb steaks.      I was left with a bowl containing a "soup" of yogurt, warm, herb flavoured olive oil & tomato juices , but no bread.   


Reader , I got a spoon ....  :P
