I must start by singing praises to my new addition to Handy Andy. It’s an ‘air fry’ ring, easily available, and it doesn’t half make scrummy chips from a potato and a very little bit of oil. It’s nice to be able to eat chips with a reasonably clear conscience!
You see, I peeled too much potato for my soup on Saturday so had to use the rest up somehow. It wasn’t deliberate, I assure you, but it might well be from now on! if you have a halogen oven, it might be worth thinking about getting one – cheaper than buying an air fryer.
Isn’t the weather ‘interesting’ at the moment. Deceptively warm days (warm in the sun anyway) but with a real nip to the air in the shade and early morning frosts. We even had a bit of sleet and then hail on Saturday. It’s more wintry than winter was and, I suppose, fairly typically March, in like a lion and out like a lamb.
Yesterday I had some fun making pasta. I had intended to make it on Saturday but I had the left over spuds so didn’t need to. I had some with the rest of the stir fry (much better with the added garlic and ginger) and some in the soup and I shall have the rest tonight with yet another recipe I found in Good Food – smoky bacon and tomato spaghetti. It’s in an article entitled ‘feed 4 for £30 and I thought ‘everyone’s jumping on the Jack bandwagon’ but actually it was five main meal recipes for £30, not a whole week’s eating. This one jumped up and cried ‘make me, make me’ so I will! It’s got my favourites – bacon, smoked paprika and tomato – and it’s dead easy and open to tweaking. I’ll let you know!
Now it is Monday lunchtime and I have time to post three blog entries at once. Overkill? Well, yes, maybe. Sorry!!
