On the Monday before Christmas, when we were all together thanks to holidays and snow days, we got into the car with The Huge List and did The Big Shop. We did this in Ballyclare, local market town and big residential area, which would, we foolishly thought, have guaranteed fairly clear roads. No!
The Huge List was, however, most successful, and only tonight have I come to the end of freezer, fridge and cupboard supplies. Helped nicely by Nigel Slater. On the Monday after Christmas (I think) I watched his Simple Suppers' Festive edition- a week's meals from the weekend's left-overs. Maybe not quite so bowl you over with lifestyle as other celebrity chefs, but reassuringly accessible on ingredients and graciously humble on a nonetheless bowl you over with lifestyle kitchen garden. And I wept my way through Toast on i-player yesterday lunch-time.
Anyway, the recipe for Perky Turkey is super with turkey or the remains of a roast chicken. (Can you identify seven ingredients without checking the website??!!) And it lets me sneak late through the door, again, of another Alphabe-Thursday!
