100 new recipes: part five

36/100: Creamy Chicken & Asparagus Linguine. This barely counts as a recipe, but I’m including it anyway. I just fried asparagus, chicken breasts, garlic and cream together into a sauce, then stirred through linguine and served it over spinach leaves, which wilted. I’m having a spinach moment. Delicious spinach.

37/100: Succotash – from this recipe. I had no idea succotash was food, and not just part of a saying from a cartoon. A tasty, spicy vegetable dish.

38/100: Roasted Eggplant & Pickled Beet Sandwich – from this recipe. I’m sure you will agree that roasted eggplant is one of the most delightful things in the world. Eaten with goat’s feta and a herby beetroot salad, it becomes heavenly. This is a fantastic sandwich combination.

39/100: Roast Chicken – from this recipe. Such a simple technique, yet results in the most perfect, tender, moist chicken. Brilliant. I also saved the carcass for stock and felt like the most accomplished homemaker ever.

40/100: Chicken Pot Pie – adapted from this recipe. I continued my role as most accomplished homemaker ever, and used up the leftover roast chicken in a pie. I know. I can see you gasping with awe from here.

41/100: Deep Dish Pizza – adapted from the various recipes and tips in this forum. Possibly the unhealthiest thing I’ve cooked this year – a very oily dough, meat and cheese laden filling, and utterly delicious. Although it does leave you not particularly wanting pizza in your near vicinity for some time afterwards.

42/100: Shepherd’s Pie – adapted from this recipe, using lamb mince rather than slow cooked shanks, and a dash of whiskey, which adds a beautiful depth of flavour.

43/100: Carnitas – from this recipe. Such a simple way of slow cooking pork shoulder, delicious on burritos with coleslaw and corn salsa.

44/100: Kosheri – from this recipe. A bit of a pain in the arse to make, with lots of things to cook separately, but very tasty.

Almost halfway! And slightly ahead of schedule.
