Comfort food

It’s been a bit of a stressful day. My hubby is away for work, on another continent, and has fallen seriously¬†ill. Fortunately, private travel insurance meant he was dealt with quickly and hospital bills weren’t an issue. All this worry has left me exhausted and I’m in need a bit of comfort. No wine left in the house. Tempted to swing by Waitrose for a pizza – maybe dough and cheese will make it better?

An initial sweep of the leftovers has identified frozen spicy chicken wings, some soft goat’s cheese, unripe peaches (prob shouldn’t leave those in the fridge) and an avocado that has finally ripened. Did have Thai chicken curry scheduled but not sure I can be bothered with that now; and just realised that the leftover coconut milk I’d saved for it has not gone off ūüôĀ sod it.

Right, in that case I’ll go for chicken thighs saut√©ed with onion and some of the fresh mushrooms which arrived in this morning’s veg box, and I have no idea what I’ll use them for. Splash of dry sherry, touch of Dijon mustard, and a little cream and tarragon to finish. Smidge of garlic would have been nice but yummy anyway – like chicken pie without the pastry! Hug in a bowl.
