Butternut Squash, Mushroom & Gorgonzola Pilaf


On 19th October 2014, This was dinner

Butternut squash is one of my favourites at the moment and anything with mushrooms is always a winner. I thought I’d really got in to my blue cheese but if I was making this again I’d use a blue but something a bit lighter. Thank goodness I didn’t stick the lot in or it would have been beans and sausages on toast for me.

Once I actually got out of bed I had…

Cauliflower Fish Curry

On 17th October 2014, This was dinner

We were supposed to have fish sandwiches for dinner tonight. I have a bag of frozen fish in the freezer for when we just want a quick dinner but we were going to defrost, breadcrumb and fry. The fish wasn’t completely defrosted so we had a chicken burger instead. Nothing exciting.

Obviously we still had the fish to use…

Smoky Bacon Pasta with Savoy Cabbage

On 13th October 2014, This was dinner

I came around a little today. You have to channel your inner Kermit, take a sip on something nice and say “other people are dicks but that’s just not my problem!”

The idea came from the latest BBC Good Food Magazine Smoky Bacon & Kale Pasta but as I couldn’t get my hands on any kale I just bought a savoy cabbage instead.


  • boil the kettle
  • chop some…
