Chorizo is delicious isn’t it?
I wanted a tasty dinner to end my working week but by the time Friday hits me I need a dinner which quite frankly doesn’t take too much effort. So, I found this easy and fast pasta recipie which has chorizo in and thought, perfect!
Cooking this simply entailed frying and boiling, it could not have been more simple but the outcome was deceptive! A spicy, moorish hug in a bowl.
Monday night equated to noodles. Chicken and veg Chinese style to be specific.
Such an easy recipe ( I know I always say that but it was!) but with such a flavor some outcome! I actually made a change to the recipie, I had some Chinese plum sauce that needed using and so instead of teriyak, I used that. A great sweet flavor resulted!
Once upon a time I thought the only way to add flavor to noodles was by the sauce that you slather on them. I now thank the day I discovered you could boil them in stock!!!
I halved the recipe but I still got a good three portions from it meaning I’m having super tasty lunches this week!
I would really recommend this dish to my fellow noodle lovers.
Wednesday nights are notorious. It’s midway through our working week, just two more days left. Do we celebrate? Or do we mope?
Well, I try to prevent the “mope” mentality by cooking up something scrumptious, which although is healthy, isn’t rabbit food.
Last night the meal was chili lamb!
Now I haven’t purposely picked super quick meals this week, but yes, you’ve guessed it……it was super quick!
The cous cous simply required chopping up a few bits, mixing and leaving to rest in boiling water. The lamb steaks took two minutes on either side in a griddle pan (although the longer you marinade, the better!)
The cous cous gave it that nice stodgy feel whilst still being light, and the lamb was moist and juice with just enough spice.
