Sometimes I can go for weeks without stumbling across a new blog or website which really interests me, and other times I find several all at once. Happily this has been a good week for blog discoveries. Carl found me reading this today
The blog is called The Modern Housewife Series Volume 1 and is written by 3 different ladies. When he noticed the title, he said, slightly wonderingly, 'your ambition really is to be the best housewife in the world, isn't it?' Well actually, I have to say, no. I want to be the best housewife I can be, to keep a welcoming home and put healthy tasty food on the table and give comfort and hospitality to all those who visit me. But not in a competitive way, just because it is the right thing to do way.
I cooked the recipe linked to above for dinner tonight, making a few tweaks here and there. I had everything I needed except for some kale, and the local shop yielded only spinach, so I went ahead and used that. After I added the ginger, I didn't think it was quite gingery enough, so I used a pinch of powdered ginger to give it a boost. I also had a tiny piece of cheddar to use, so I spread a layer of the beany butternut squash puree across a plate, grated over the cheese, then topped with the gingery tomatoey spinach.
It was really filling, and very flavourful, definitely one to make again. I think I will have to give some of the other recipes on the website a try too.
What did you have for dinner tonight?
