A lovely breakfast
~ and then ~
Potato & Green Chilli Fritter with Salted Cashews
White Wine Spritzer
This morning I found a few little pieces of Stollen and 2 mince pies in a tin in the back of the cupboard, maybe the last of the Christmas leftovers! I was going to make bread pudding with the stolen but then, having no particular breakfast in mind, decided to experiment and, to be frank, my experiment was based on something I read on the internet a while back on Good Food Shared I chopped up the Stollen poured over some double cream and baked for about 15 minutes at 375ºF/190ºC/gas 5. And the result?Gobsmackingly delicious (and rather naughty).
Undeterred I also had a great lunch. I have a tendency to cook too many potatoes for dinner and therefore, when wandering about the kitchen looking for lunch inspiration, I found 3 cold cooked potatoes in the fridge. I nearly threw them out as I can’t remember when I put them in there but my inner greedy pig got the better of me and instead I heated them in the microwave, mashed them with mayo and green chillipickle, made a little cake, coated it in panko crumbs and fried it …
Then I ate it with, as is my wont, with a handful of cashew nuts.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll … I’m so, so, so glad I can cook. Every day I eat food that is, for me at least, outstandingly delicious (not only can I cook,I also have a big head) yet it costs me very little and takes me hardly any time. Anyone who doesn't learn this crucial skill is a daftie!
