Spinach and Potato curry with batter flat bread

 As an evening meal we made the Sag Aloo recipe from book 3. Although here is another recipe that might work. 

As I had 1/2 a can of coconut milk left from Monday's from spade to plate, it was a great way to use it up.

The flat bread that we made was more of a pancake. No need to roll it out. It did puff up and was a fun alternative. Not sure if I would make it again if the normal flatbread ingredients are around.

Not much in the allotment at the moment, but still some delicious meals

 This week I had to be creative as at this time of the year there is not much and with this week's heavy frost even less to harvest.

With this in mind, the Spinach Orzo turned out really well. This quick and delicious meal was a real winner.  We did make enough for 3 hungry mouths so after all was tidied up, I had a walk in the sunshine (very slippery under foot though) to give June a taster

As I had a can of tomato in my cupboard, we turned it into a creamy tomato soup that we had as an evening meal in the end.

Today's from Spade to Plate. One-Pan orzo with Spinach and Feta (and pinenuts as suggested by Julie) The end result....? A gorgeous lunch, made with input of 6 of us. The 2 ingredient tomato soup was quick and tasty.

suggestion to serve with a parmesan topping was genius. All in all, another lovely cooking session.

Wednesday 20th January Zoom session - Festive warm brussels sprouts salad with 'mushroom bacon'

      For tonight's dinner:we made this  Warm brussels sprouts salad  and mushroom bacon

It was extremely easy to make, I did not use the oven and fried the brussels sprouts and mushrooms instead.

We had plenty of  time to have a chat, and have found out that Brussels sprouts were available in the USA, Finland and the UK!

It was lovely to see Meghan and Ying and look forward to seeing them again next week.

We had this 'salad' with quinoa and liked it so much that tomorrow I will be making it again.
