We're having Something From The Freezer for tea - OH has to have soup because of his impending throat op, so the girls and I are having a selection of nice things including moussaka and veg curry (you know, all those single left-over portions you freeze and forget about!!) That gives me time to make some proper soup.

The weather is glum and looks glum for the rest of the week, and I have been feeling rundown so a week of eating fabulously is called for.

Tonight: Mega haggis with stilton mash and baked beans.

Am going to prepare a mutton curry this evening for tomorrow evening (always better when it has rested overnight), and then on Wednesday I have something quite decadent in mind.

Hurrah!

Nothing like lots of good food to cheer you up and cure ills and say fie to foul weather.

The week of Eating Fabulously Day Two: Mutton vindaloo slowly bubbling away, milder coconut lamb curry resting, going to make muttor paneer later, dough for Peshwari Naan rising (hopefully) in airing cupboard.

Well, just to add a ridiculous contrast to that sublime menu, we're having a ten-minute spanish omelette (but at least the eggs are local...very local!)

forgot to mention, also in those tarts: potato slices sauteed in duck fat and caramelised onions on a bechamel base, and all topped with a sticky reduction of venison stock.

Just in case you thought I was skimping.

Currently looking for more ways of accommodating my glut of spinach/chard varieties, as I came back from England to a real jungle of them.
So it's chard+chevre quiche - yesterday was indian spinach+potato dish (can't remember the real name) and tomorrow will probably be chard+fetta+pine nuts. There is even, somewhere, a recipe for a sweet chard tart.

Spanakopita is another good recipe for using lots of spinach, Snoops.

WOEF continues with paprika roast chicken this evening. And strawberry wine.

Spanakopita - thanks, yes I like it, but for some reason I have never done filo pastry!!! I am not even sure I can get it here and would certainly NOT make it from scratch.

I used to find it in Carrefour. Agree it is a pain to make from scratch. Making puff is bad enuff.

all the little North African shops in perpigan had it as well. or something very similar. Probably didn't call it filo. Although they never really spoke to me anyway, just scowled menacingly.

Trying to make space in freezers, so had homemade soup for lunch, the kind when you have no idea what is in it when it is blitzed up, but tastes really yummy, & the freezer is half a dozen marg tubs emptier.

Tonight is homemade burgers & chips
