Meals in minutes...

I've long been a fan of cookery programmes on the TV and it always fascinates me how they manage to create superb meals in no time at all; more often than not with ingredients you're quite likely to have lying around.

It was challenge enough getting home last night with most routes between work, home (with recently acquired moat) and the local supermarket having closed so when I did finally get home feeling tired and rather too damp for my liking, I'm afraid my culinary muse had deserted me.

I would have hit the shops today but it seems the weekend sniffles have developed somewhat further resulting in my first "sickie" in probably a year or more. Fortunately, it's not the dreaded man-flu so there's no need to write my will just yet, but in-between nodding off in front of the UKTV Food programmes on TV, I've decided to see if I can be a bit more inventive for the rest of the week and make the odds and ends I've got last until the weekend.

Well, certainly a bit more imaginative than the cheese and Marmite on toast with Spiderman pasta shapes served last night...

You could cheat and order on-line from Tesco's (other monolithic supermarkets available).

Liver, fava beans and a nice chianti spring to mind...

Get well soon.

I hear good things about online shopping and keep meaning to give it a try.

Thanks for the meal suggestion - I think I'm missing all three ingredients although I may have a census taker in the freezer somewhere...

Big J wants his spiderman pasta back!

His Scooby Doo pasta shapes are still untouched - does that count?

Wish I could say the same for the Disney Princess pasta. Sounds like I'll have both of them on my trail...
