Thursday morning and still dark
Fed and happy we settled down to watch a film. Mike had already gone to bed for a kip and once Shiona had departed I too followed him. Supper last night was the steak from Tesco - say no more it was tough and terrible and would have been better stewed.
Today I have not really got any plans but will need to do a bit of shopping for odds and ends and I still have a batch of ironing to get rid of so that will keep me occupied for a while. Then I suppose there is no reason not to make the sloe gin as the sloes are frozen and just need a bit of a bashing before being bottled. I have some lamb chump ends which I will roast off in the halogen oven which we can have with new potatoes and a salad.
Recipe for cold left over roast meat
Slice the meat thinly and then add a sliced red onion and a handful of capers in vinegar. Dress with a good splash of olive oil and salt and pepper. Then leave to marinate for a few hours before eating.
This would make a nice cold alternative to Annes recipe for a hot gratin. It works best with either lamb or beef but can be used with pork, chicken or veal.
