I recently learned the term ‘pluviophile’ which describes someone who enjoys the rain and gains peace of mind from it. Like a number of people I can absolutely relate to that: do you get that feeling of instant comfort when you look out the window and see that it’s pouring outside? I think there’s almost something reliving about it; like it gives you the green light for a few guilt free hours of relaxation – I mean you couldn’t possibly go out and run errands in such dreadful conditions, right?
This recipe is a great alternative to the Sunday roast when you’re in the mood for a more relaxed evening in rather than watching over numerous dishes cooking away. Using cheap cuts of meat cooked low and slow in one pot you’ll get a delicious, hearty meal that saves money and washing up. More time for relaxing!
It’s not just a man’s heart that food can find its way to. No, no, no. The best way to show your mum how much you love her? That’d be with something homemade, sweet and totally delicious. And perhaps washed down with a few glasses or prosecco whilst staring at a beautiful bunch of flowers… but you get the idea: cake first.
With a hearty base of penne pasta and packed with all kinds of raw and fiery veggies this is the kind of salad that’ll put hairs on your chest. The kind that’ll make you want to chop wood and grow a beard do other gender stereotypes I haven’t mentioned. You get the idea: this is a fiery dish that’s perfect for celebrating the arrival of warmer weather.
You may remember from my previous post that I’m in the process of reviewing a whole host of kitchen goodies by Panasonic. I can’t lie I’m enjoying this collaboration so much: every couple of months something exciting turns up at my door and I try to make it look at home in my kitchen. I say that, because the Panasonic range is seriously shiny and the appliances look ever so slightly out of place in my not-as-shiny kitchen… they look as though they were made to stand upon sparkling marble work tops!
