    A cold dinner designed to use up leftovers. We had some leftover roast pork loin and corned beef which was sliced thin and served cold with some cheese. Starch and veg were tomato and pea bruschetta.

    Lemon-tahini coucous with turkey and vegetables topped with sliced almonds, lemon zest and feta. This was a modification of a chicken recipe from eatingwell.com. I used some already cooked ground turkey from the freezer. The recipe put all ingredients together but I preferred the meat, coucous and vegetables separated bowl style. Vegetables were mushrooms, cabbage/carrot mix and baby spinach.

    Replacing the turkey with garbanzo beans would make a pretty decent vegetarian meal.

    I'm in love with my cast iron skillet! Tonight I made chicken with just-picked beans, onions and cherry tomatoes from my garden along with mushrooms. So good! And yes, I devoured the whole thing.

    Didn't realize until I sat down to eat that my lunch today was "salad with a side of salad". :)

    White beans, orange bell pepper, cherry hot pepper, cucumber, yellow string beans, kimchi, sunflower seeds, sesame oil, and fresh lemon juice, with a side of seaweed salad.

    Two slices of sourdough rye bread topped with a lemony basil ricotta, petit pois, runner beans and asparagus. Splodge of the ricotta on top with a sprinkling of garlic and parsley pangrattato. With a big salad.

    Second attempt at mince fish stuffed Chinese aubergines and green peppers with black bean sauce. When we were visiting our hometown in Amsterdam we ate it at the restaurant I used to order takeaway from, and decided I need to learn to make this at home, as I don't see it on any menu's in London near me and crave it often. Cooking time for this meal is an hour, but hope to shorten that with practice and figuring out some shortcuts. It's a restaurant dish that is more elaborate than the Chinese home style recipes I normally do.

    Your sorbet looks lovely. I do not have an ice cream maker and when my fruit sorbets freeze too hard my rescue is to cut into cubes, run through the food processor with a raw egg white, then re-freeze. This seems to aerate the mixture enough to loosen the texture.
