The Dairy Book of Family Cookery is in plentiful supply on ebay – I had a look this morning.
I think it’s a wonderful credit to the writers of the book that it has inspired and delighted so many children who grew up with those ‘vibrant’ photos, and who have gone on to have a real love and interest in cooking.
The veggie box has just arrived.
This week’s challenge is fennel.
In anticipation of it not going down well with Nigel I have found 2 recipes and I will not mention what it is unless he asks.
Actually my main problem I’m having with my veggie box is eating everything before things spoil. The wonderful broccoli went off and I never seem to be able to get through my salad leaves before they pass the point of no return.
I am planning to cook and freeze some things, so on lazy days or when I’m feeling under par I can pop out a lovely homemade, organic ‘ready’ meal of my own.
Off to Waitrose in a minute – that store makes supermarket shopping a real pleasure. If any of you have one in your locality and don’t use it try it occasionally – it’s sort of like stepping back in time and entering a food arena for thinkers – they haven’t (as yet) enlisted celebrities to endorse what I refer to as lazy cooking – it’s just very simple - that’s simple in a good way;-)
