What to eat? It’s summer, but it’s grey and close.
It’s Sunday and you’ve been working 9 days in a row.
You don’t like red meat (except sausages), your partner won’t eat fish. He’s on his last day of an 11-day shift and you want to treat him.
You get yourself to Nigella and pray that inspiration comes in a cupboard-friendly recipe.
A pie! Comforting, satisfying, servable warm with salad and cold for lunches for the rest of the week.
You can’t make pastry, but hey! There’s a twelfth time for everything. Now… which pie, with which filling, can your full but dinner-free fridge fulfil?*
Sausage. Spinach. Breadcrumbs. Eggs. Hoorah. There is a feast here after all.
I cooked it late afternoon and by dinner at 7pm it was just warm, perfect with a side salad of tomatoes and mozzarella on spinach.
And guess what, it’s gorgeous cold for lunch, too.
This picture taken hastily by the Boy before snarfling the whole piece! Apologies!
I think this may just become a picnic staple.
* Does anyone else manage to do that? Spend £80 in Sainsburys only to have nothing for dinner and a fully stocked and useless fridge? We’ve been eating fried halloumi with Chinese soup this week…
