    Started with onion bhaji, veg pakora and veg samosa followed by chicken balti with basmati rice and finished with the man from Del Monte's fruit cocktail, jelly and ice cream...

    Left it too late to do the slow cooked Bolognese sauce as both the wife and I were on work conference calls (separate ones) for the entire afternoon. So we had evening breakfast - smoked bacon, scrambled eggs, toast and a mountain of mushrooms fried in butter with garlic - which always hits the spot. Limited myself to a single rasher of bacon, my only one of the year, due to incredible salt content and my self knowledge that I could easily eat an entire pack.

    That’s the one Steels.

    Not had a bad meal from it yet. And it’s easy to adapt and add to any of them. Which in my case usually means adding heat. This week, in addition to the salmon one above, we’ll be having the sweet potato and sausage one with a few additions, including chipotle sauce. The steak and rosemary potato one is good too, as is the duck breast and rice, though spiced up the rice and crisped up the duck a lot on the second time.

    You can tell it’s a well used cookbook because it’s got my scribble on every page that has a recipe that we have tried, and quite a lot of the ingredients stuck in it too.

    Enjoy!

    I did an improvised homemade curry for the boys, browning off some cubed chicken breasts and the remainder of a packet of pork meatballs, adding some chopped onion, courgette, mushrooms and aubergine, and then - the piece de resistance - stirring through a Co-op lentil dahl soup.

    We didn’t have naan bread, so made do with warmed wraps, and I mixed up three different 2-min micro rices in a Pyrex bowl, which ended up rather wonderfully colourful.

    Lil’ Uberette (the pesky-wotsit) had fish fingers, chips, peas and sweetcorn. It doesn’t really matter what you give her as she drowns it in Tommy K anyway.

    Reminds of my daughter, for her 21st we took her to a swanky restaurant where we ordered a gourmet meal and the look on the waiters face when she said "Where's the ketchup?"... Priceless... <laugh>
