For Dinner Tonight:

Chicken and Vegetable Couscous
Homemade Bread
Cherry Ice-Cream

We do things with couscous that would make a North African weep. Tonight involved leftover cous cous, leftover roast chicken, lots of chopped mixed vegetables, cinnamon and Vegeta (can't cook without this magic powder) all fried up together in some olive oil. Very nice, especially with some garlic chilli sauce on the side. The boys didn't like it though - 'mixed up' food doesn't always go down well with them. They did enjoy the bread, which for a decadent change I made with just white flour. For the ice-cream I cut down the amount of sugar and stirred in a cup of Turkish Cherry Jam, which I had found lurking way, way in the back of a cupboard. How I miss the Turkish shops of north-east London. Sigh.
