Ooh, rhymes. Lovely meter too.
Anyhow, first post since Jon came down with
the plague bronchitis and nearly died needed much care and attention. I have another for tomorrow, a FitFriday worth mentioning and a book extract for Saturday. Yay for return of writing!
Today Jon came home for lunch and this is what we had.
Both need to be prepared in advance. I did Stage 1 on Tuesday and Stage 2 on Wednesday, but you can just leave 2-5h between the two if you like.
Recipe 1: Spicy Lamb and Potato Bake.
-4 lamb chops
-400g potato (I made more, but that was so I could make good use of it for a breakfast tortilla de patatas)
-2 small onions
-4 small carrots
For the marinade:
-6-10tsp hot sauce (tabasco or green habanero sauces are good)
-1tsp Worcester sauce
-chopping board and knife
-cup and teaspoon
1: Mix the marinade ingredients in a cup.
2: Add warm water to dissolve them.
3: Slice the potatoes into 1cm thick rounds. Layer along the base of the tray.
4: Place the lamb on top of the potatoes.
5: Pour the marinade over. Use any thicker parts at the bottom to coat the lamb.
6: Add water until everything is just covered.
7: Leave to rest.
8: Chop the carrots into sticks and the onions into quarters.
9: Submerge the carrots in the marinade and place the onion quarters on top.
10 Bake at 160C for 120min.
11: Bake at 200C for 30-60min.
