Yesterday was shopping day, but I still had quite a lot of leftovers in the fridge so dinner was a bit of a pot luck. Or should I say, a pot of gold 🙂


  • Pork sausages, browned.
  • An onion, carrot and celery mirepoix perked up with a handful of smoked pancetta lardons, 2 cloves of sliced garlic and some shredded fresh sage leaves.
  • A mug of fresh chicken stock with a tablespoon of tomato paste (for colour and to thicken the finished stew).
  • The end of a bag of frozen cauliflower and broccoli florets.
  • Half a mug of coconut milk, smidge of Dijon mustard and a nugget of mature cheddar, grated.
  • A drizzle of EVO (I need the extra fat)

Drumroll please…………….


[the wine was also leftover, so had to use that up too 🙂 ]


Taco omelette

90% of my breakfasts are now eggs in omelette-format, so I try to keep things interesting by varying my repertoire. Now this may sound a bit repetitive, but is this really any different to the cereal/ stuff on toast rotation most people have in the mornings?

Having raided my fridge scraps I found an orange and a green pepper, some fresh cherry toms, grated cheddar and half a pot of guacamole. Added a handful of shredded, crunchy lettuce and ta daa!  Fresh, tasty, filling – what more could a girl want?
