Our plan to go for a long walk today and maybe find a pub for lunch along the way got scuttled by the weather. It isn't that cold, but it is grey and rainy and not conducive for the outdoors.
So when it got close to lunchtime I was thrown on the resources of pantry and fridge. And came up with a really delicious adaptation of this Delia Smith recipe.
Basically, a bag of mixed salad leaves and a diced ripe pear went into a bowl with a bag of baguette croutons (we hardly ever have bread in the house, so we don't have bread to go stale and get made into garlic croutons from scratch). Then in a small pan I melted a (rather nice, unpasteurised, very runny) ripe camembert with 3tbs of white wine vinegar and 2 chopped cloves of garlic and poured it over the salad when it fell from my whisk in creamy ribbons.
Delicious! And the sauce was so good it will probably get an outing poured over steamed broccoli. Or possibly on a steak if we decide our arteries aren't hardening fast enough.
