I found this little book in a box bound for the car boot sale on Sunday - a freebie with a ladies magazine. Nigel Slater is one of the 'old school' cooking writers who I quite like. He quite simply appears to really enjoy his grub. So he's been my bedtime companion whilst Mr F is off being brilliant somewhere else for a change. My favourite quote of the book 'I must admit I rarely measure anything'. Now that's my kind of cooking. He also talks about essentials for the store cupboard, sensible chap that he is. I'll keep reading and nodding when he's right. Might provide some inspiration for a few more quick and cheerful home cooked grub - which I'll no doubt share on 'This Wee Lass Eats' - where this post SHOULD have ended up.
Ah the joys of plentiful blogs and sleepy blogging by (not so) smart phone. Until next time.......I might challenge myself to read some of the one million cook (and gardening) books I have - that will keep me busy over the winter. And rest assured its almost winter here in Orkney, none of this 'autumn chat' from the rest of you. Its firmly proper winter here now - quick-spring/summer will resume next April/May.
