    I have an allotment garden and I have suddenly had a glut of ripe tomatoes.
    So I have been looking for ideas to use up all these tomotoes I have and I cam across this.

    https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/vegetables-recipes/minestrone-soup/

    Since I have plenty of leeks , onions, garlic and beans that I have grown so the shopping list was massivly reduced and I have a pot of soup on the stove for tonight and several portions for the freezer.

    The Moroccan chicken with preserved lemon recipe from the Modern Jewish Cooking cookbook. I halved the recipe, took the skin off of the chicken (I really don't enjoy chicken skin when it has been braised), but used the full amount of preserved lemon and garlic.

    I have actually made that recipe @preserved lemon. It's so good with chicken. I usually add Israeli unpitted olives too. Yum!

    I'm jealous.

    I quite liked how hands off it was as well! I ended up using olives that had been marinated with garlic (among other things). I have two meals worth of leftovers and I think it would be really good with couscous. But yeah, preserved lemons are amazing. I think I might try to make preserved lemons next week if I can find some (very early) meyer lemons.

    The brisket recipe in that cookbook is also really good.

    Did you use some of the liquid in your couscous? Omg! I have actually made the brisket too. Super good. Sighs.

    I didn't know - I didn't end up making couscous today but I probably will tomorrow. I also cooked down the liquid enough that there's no way I'd be able to really use it for couscous.

    I'm the weekend and company cook. Friends coming round for dinner on Saturday. Classic caesar. Roast potatoes and roast beef with garlic sauteed spinach and bearnaise. Clafoutis with strawberries or blue berries if still in season, or pears otherwise.

    Going to try out a novel technique for the bearnaise.

    Thai curry with boneless skinless chicken breast (a little over cooked - this is why I use thighs...), bell pepper, and delicata squash.

    Dinner tonight was a team effort. We'd marinated the pork ribs and chicken wings and left it for the menfolk to grill up because we weren't going to be doing that in 109°F. Potatoes and broccoli on the grill with aromatics. Southern beans meets Oregon flavours - they basically took the Southern sausage spicy beans we'd started and turned it into Oregon bean ... Kinda like a pimped up truck. Creamy shrimp. Got distracted with football and took our eyes off for a second - a tad over done.homemafe Mac n cheese. We also made Rotel cheesy turkey nachos dip, but that all finished before we had returned from our PM run so I couldn't get a pic.

    ** All was pre-prepped and ready to monitor over the grill or gas stove by our friends who preferred to drink and watch football, rather than join us for our run. :laugh:
