Good timing to get a swede this week, as we’ll be having a Haggis next wednesday for Burns’ night and use it to make our neeps and tatties. I’ve been craving bubble and squeak with poached eggs, so some of the cabbage will be going that way, and the rest will make a lovely winter coleslaw.
I’m trialling focaccia and apple pizza this week so if they work out, I’ll let you have the recipes. On tonight’s menu is the much beloved mushroom barley bake, which is a fantastic January dish; cheap, healthy, comforting and filling. Do try it if you haven’t already; it’s a bit like a risotto, but with a slightly chewy texture and a lovely creamy and cheesey topping.
