I’m still reading ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ and LOVING it! I’m sure the writing style wouldn’t be for everyone, and some of the passages are quite long-winded, but it’s a very complex and intriguing story of providence, betrayal and revenge. And look how much I’ve devoured in two short weeks, thanks to Tiny falling asleep in the car a number of times recently (as opposed to not at all, grrrrr):
And this week’s meals have been chosen from these three English beauties:
Will be posting a recipe shortly for a tomato-less bolognese sauce (I know! Crazy, right?!) from the Market Kitchen Cookbook – it was REALLY good, and was even better on day two according to Tall. Tiny scoffed a heap of it, which was amazing as he’s not really a big meat eater. He also luuurved Tana Ramsay’s Carrot & Parsnip Mash (so simple: (for 4-6 servings) boil 300g each of carrot and parsnip for 12mins; drain; return pan to heat to remove any moisture; remove and mash lightly; stir in 50g butter & freshly ground black pepper; check seasonings; add freshly grated nutmeg and serve.) which was amazing as he usually won’t eat anything remotely vegetably!
