I seem to have been on a bit of a cooking kick over the last few days. So far I have made a casserole which I have eaten on two nights and still have another couple of servings in the freezer. Then I managed to get some reduced price fish so I made a couple of fish pies, both of them are now in the freezer as well. Along with a pizza and another couple of things that means I now have at least eight meals in the freezer. With the rest of he vegetables I didn't use in the casserole or the fish pies I made a soup which I will be having for dinner tonight.
Currently I have some caramelised red onion chutney simmering away in the kitchen, once bottled I am planing on using some this as Christmas presents. All in all I have been the very figure of the domestic goddess.
In the eighteen or so months that I have been on my own I think this is only the fourth or fifth time I have used the microwave at all, and on those occasions it has been to defrost or warm up something quickly. I have never been fully comfortable with microwaves and would not buy one if I did not have one already. So what culinary delight did I need to use this piece of technology for? A baked potato with grated cheese and baked beans. Even this Domestic Goddess has her off days!
