Some ideas for the weekend
April 6, 2012
Midterm break means…….bedlum really. A new recipe? Completely out of the question I’m afraid so I’ve done a quick trawl of things I reckon might be nice for long weekend. Here goes……
Blood orange season is nearly over so enjoy them before they go. Skye Gyngell’s recipe for caramelized blood oranges is a lovely one. All you need is a little ice-cream and maybe a slice of toasted panettone and you’ve got a simple, elegant desert. Or how about an intensely chocolately roulade with a blood orange salad for Easter Sunday? Or there’s a cake with almonds and a vanilla mascarpone topping that always goes down a storm.
If you’re planning a big meal for Easter this week’s fennel makes a fantastic gratin which goes with any roast. We’ve also got some early courgettes which I think I’ll use to make a soup with Parmesan. Right, I think that’s it. I hear Lee bawling downstairs, gotta go. Have a fantastic weekend xx
