For Dinner Tonight:

Roast Chicken
Cheat’s Fassoulia
Green Salad
Homemade Bread
Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream

I cheated on the fassoulia by pre-cooking the haricot beans then simmering them in pureed tomatoes (frozen from last year’s harvest) with bay leaves, lots of our own garlic (getting pretty dry now) and a good slug of olive oil.

The vanilla ice-cream was made using this recipe from the wonderful Pleasant View School House. I’ve never had success making ice-cream before but this recipe is absolutely amazing. We’ve tried it with strawberry puree mixed in too – it’s the cat’s pyjamas!

Tonight was a good night. Last night it was peanut butter sandwiches for the boys and a frozen ready meal for us. I have a very understanding husband.
