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.
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.
Almost halfway! And slightly ahead of schedule.
