A little bit of sunshine
sun is shining, my three little cherubs are playing harmoniously in the
garden (read: taking turns tripping each other up on the trampoline)
and I have a spare moment to try out a new recipe from an excellent blog
that a friend suggested to me: Dinner A Love Story. Now
whilst I am lucky enough that my eldest girls are junior foodies, I can't quite
guarantee that everything served up for tea will be greeted with the same
kind of enthusiasm that, say, Waitrose Finest's pizza will be.
"Mummy, this is DELICIOUS, you are the best cookerer ever!"
Thanks girls. It came out of a box. So, tonight, to go along with the
parmesan and polenta-crusted plaice and minty mushy peas, I wanted
to try these chips (http://www.dinneralovestory.com/fish-chips),
as in my children's minds chips/fries/crisps elevate any meal into the treat
We're having sweet potato later in the week (Eating Well's black bean & sweet potato chilli) so I just used white potatoes instead. Also, my oven is on the hot side (generally temp is out by a whopping 30 degrees) and so I did need to keep my eye on them but after 15 mins at 220 they were crispy, crunchy and the perfect vehicle for persuading my littlest to eat her greens. Look....chip, mushy peas, KETCHUP - yum!
