This will be my last post for a week, we're off on holiday this morning. A week of driving, walking and eating around Northern Britain. I am hoping that some really top-quality blogging will result!
But it meant that last night there was some work to do. Everything that was likely to perish in the fridge had to go. And to my mind, the best thing to do in this situation is to put everything in a pan with some olive oil and a tin of chopped tomatoes.
So - a couple of slices of leftover jerk beef, a leftover chicken thigh, an onion, a red pepper past its first firmness, a couple of big flat field mushrooms, an aubergine and 4 small tomatoes. A sachet of French onion soup that is far too disgusting to have as soup but makes a useful thickener and seasoning. The last of a bottle of red wine that wasn't very nice.
Now the fridge is clear, we won't come back to funny smells and we can enjoy our holiday.
