A simple supper for a girl with a cold…


A simple supper for a girl with a cold…

Nothing elaborate today, my Bubs have shared their cold with me, and to be honest I am struggling to taste anything and am looking forward to my bed.

A quick scout of the fridge and freezer unearthed some leftover chorizo, a few wilting spring onions, some lovely peppery rocket and a few tiny tender scallops.

It’s a long time since I last ate fried bread, but when done well it is a true joy. A splash of garlic oil and a slightly stale slice of white resulted in a tasty treat, a salad of rocket and parsley would not normally spring to mind, but was a success, and I could taste it. Topped with good oil and balsamic I felt like a good girl for getting some much needed vitamins.

A flash in a hot pan for some sliced chorizo, a tiny bit of chilli and the sliced spring onions, gave a punchy hit, topped with juicy scallops for texture…a squeeze of lemon and my tasty treat was complete…..it took all of 5 minutes, they 5 minutes well spent.

Sweet Dreams

About thesideplate

I think its fair to say I am a self taught cook, inspired by a childhood of tough roasts and lumpy mash. After a rare treat out at a local pub where I was served roast lamb with a rich gravy that wasn’t made from Bisto, followed by a creamy gooseberry fool, I started to understand why some people loved food. At the age of 19 I rented a flat, bought a wok and a cookbook and embarked in a culinary love affair. In summer I still love to go down the garden and pinch a stick of rhubarb to dip in sugar, and am pleased to say that my children know what a home grown potato tastes like, and that a chicken is something that runs round our garden and isn’t just meat from the fridge. Nothing makes me more content than sitting in the kitchen trying out a new recipe for a new cookbook and then sharing it with friends. The washing up im not so keen on.

  1. Good day! Would you mind if I share your blog with
    my facebook group? There’s a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content.
    Please let me know. Thanks

  2. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question
    that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Appreciate it!
