swedish chef

five minute sauce

Quiet Sunday, after my two lessons including the most challenging one of the week. Dinner was rice and some veggie meatballs that had been languishing in the freezer, in sauce a la flavio (mostly the rest of that passata jar that had been sitting in the fridge for days, on a soffritto of garlic (chopped frozen garlic from Waitrose because I'm so lazy), a bit of onion that happened to be around, whatever dried herbs there were in the kitchen but mostly oregano, a bit of pepper and a few leaves borrowed from Basil the basil plant, who has amazingly survived some four years sitting at my room window. That wasn't his intended fate, as he was just a 99p basil plant from Tesco's -they normally die within a couple of weeks. All this unlikely mix worked.
