Cheese and tomato on toast. When it comes to cheese on toast, for me the highly-processed cheese slices that come wrapped in plastic are where it’s at.
Dinner was Italian ‘Polpette’ meatball and pasta soup. This is one of my favourite mid-week suppers and goes down a treat with the family.It is very quick too if I buy pre-made meatballs. Slice onion, dice garlic,carrots,celery and zucchini,brown all. Add meatballs an brown, add a jar of pasta sauce or passata and a cup of red wine and simmer for 45minutes or so until the soup is thick,deeply flavoured. Before serving, throw in a few handfuls of spiral pasta and cook. Baby-G has his with garlic bread. We find the soup on it’s own is enough.
I always make enough for leftovers the next day.
I made this up on the hoof. It was a dark and stormy night, we were back late from school and although I wanted to cook something fast, I wanted it to be a bit special for our weekend guests. A thick, warming fish stew seemed to fit the bill. Served with crusty bread and butter.
I sliced 1 medium brown onion, crushed two garlic cloves and sliced 2 sticks of celery. Added these to a thick casserole dish with a bit of olive oil and sauteed. I then added small diced potato (about two large baking potatoes, a tablespoon of mixed herbs,a tin of chopped tomatoes and a jar of herb pasta sauce. I simmered all this on low for about 30 minutes.
When the veg were all cooked through, I added 2 filets of salmon I had diced into cubes, 3 filets of cod, a pack of frozen prawns and some mussels I found pre-cooked and vacuum-packed at Aldi. I heated this all through until the fish was cooked, and served.
It was LOVELY. And I am planning to repeat it very soon.
