Quick Tea

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

We’ve all just returned from holiday and needed a quick dinner plus we had some pears looking a pit peaky.


Boomer took the pieces of toast and obviously the pear slices fell off but she just picked them up once she had finished with the toast.



Slices of wholemeal bread

Pesto (I used red pesto as that’s what we had in the fridge)

Slices of pear

Slices of cheese (whatever type you like we had a selection of whatsleftinthefridgeous variety)

Some fresh basil leaves (admittedly we didn’t have this tonight but I’ve used it before and it’s delicious)



Lightly toast the bread (either on one side under the grill or quickly in the toaster). Slice the toast half to create smaller pieces to create a couple of

Spread the toast with a slather of pesto, place a slice of pear and a leaf of basil on top and finish with a thin slice of cheese. Place under the grill until the cheese is nicely melted.

Leek and Tattie Soup

Friday, July 14th, 2006

Boomer ate almost as much as me when we dined on this at grandpa and grannies house. Boomer liked eating the same as us and she grabbed my spoon to get at it (see tattie soup photo)



·        equal quantities of leeks and potatoes

·        olive oil

·        vegetable bouillon powder  (reduced salt)



Clean and chop the leeks into small pieces and sweat in the oil, over a medium heat, for about 3mins. Peel the potatoes and chop into small cubes, then stir in with the leeks for 2mins. Mix the stock to a strength that suits and add sufficient to just cover the leek/potato mixture Bring to the boil then cover and reduce to a simmer for 12/15mins. Liquidise but don’t puree – lumpy bits are interesting. Serve with crusty bread for the baby to dunk and season to taste for the grown-ups.

If you want Cream of Leek & Potato, then before serving stir in some milk, cream, or yoghurt.
