I tried a new 'Nigella Express' recipe tonight. Mellow Meatballs were all the name promised. A tasty, delicious meal in a relatively express timeframe. Miss Mischief was happy that chickpeas were part of the ingredients list. I was happy that I still had some homemade stock on my fridge...as well as all the other store cupboard ingredients for this recipe, thanks to our delight in Nigella's prawn and mango curry recipe. To add to my enthusiasm for making this meal tonight, the meat was already defrosted and in the fridge. So coming home after 5pm and having to start on dinner straight away was really not much of a problem! No waiting for meat to defrost in the microwave.
You know what? I didn't even fiddle with the recipe. Just did exactly what it said to do! This meal will end up on our menu plan over winter....absolutely. The bonus is that Dh & I have lunch for tomorrow and Dh had seconds tonight. That recipe went a really, really long way.
