Comfort Food

Last week I prepared all our food for the week on Sunday- I just felt like being unusually organised! The recipes from the week came from Jamie Oliver’s Comfort Food book (available here on Amazon for ¬£8)

There were 2 meals for the week

– Bloody Mary Beef

– Chicken Pie

Bloody Mary Beef

Delicious slow cooked brisket with Tabasco, vodka and tomato, served with horseradish mash and curly kale. You use 1kg of beef in this, so it definitely lasts more than one meal. We just threw a bit of red wine into the dish later in the week and reheated it for 40 minutes. The beef is like a pulled beef- tender and tasty!

Chicken Pie

For this pie I slowcooked the filling (not strictly true to the recipe’s method) and then left it to cool. I also prepared the pastry and wrapped it in clingfilm and put it in the fridge overnight. Then, when I came home from work, I just rolled the pastry into my favourite pastry dish from Le Creuset (Available here in John Lewis), through the cold filling in, and then egg-washed it.
