Daily eats

I’m just roasting some veges right now, and they smell so, so good. Nothing special: zucchini, capsicum, potatoes, onions, and garlic with a splosh each of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Mmmmm. To go with: some green leafy rocket, balsamic seared pork chops (shield yr eyes, veges and vegans) and applesauce with rosemary. Goddamn, the house smells fantastic!

Yesterday when I got home from Lugano it was cold, wet and miserable, and the fridge and cupboard were bare. Having missed lunch (except for a packet of chips and an apple somewhere between Lugano and Zürich), I craved someting rib-sticking and hot. I managed to scrounge up the ingredients for a fortifying tomato, bean and barley soup which we ate with bread and cheese, and finished with a decidely rib-sticking sticky toffee apple pudding with butterscotch sauce. It really hit the spot, I tell you.

Tomorrow its home-made buttermilk fried chicken, and somewhere down the line this week I want to make my friend Gabriella’s caponata, with sauteed aubergine, zucchini, capsicum and potato, mixed together with vinegar and sugar (that sounds awesome). And I’ve had a dark, sticky ginger cake on my mind for some time now, too…

  1. Is this pudding similar to your sticky toffee pudding recipe from January 2005? Do you just add chopped apple, or is it different in other ways? I’d love to try it.
