life matters

No matter how much you plan your life — from batch cooking base ingredients on Sunday so dinner’s a snap during the week to ironing all the school uniforms as soon as they’re washed — there’s really nothing you can do to prepare for an unexpected illness. A few weeks ago I found myself in this exact situation, except that I hadn’t batch cooked or ironed anything. That Sunday, when I could have been ‘batching’, I was lying in bed shivering and aching, and any time I might have had for ironing was spent at a school working bee.

“IT WAS SUPER DELICIOUS BUT SO EASY, TOO!” One-pan fan When I saw the recipe for the One-pan Yellow Pork Curry with Coconut Rice (August 2016, p28) I just had to try it. Not only was it super delicious but so easy, too. What’s not to love? Thank you Super Food Ideas. Bernadette Hendry, via Facebook Ed says: Thanks for the delish pic! STICKY WITH IT The Sticky Vietnamese Chicken Wings with Spicy Mint Sauce (September 2016, p76) was so yummy and such a great recipe! The marinade gave it a delicious flavour with a great chilli hit.

Globe artichokes This beautiful-looking vegetable might be a labour of love, but they’re well worth the effort. Made up of several layers, the soft ends of the inner leaves and the heart can be eaten, however the tougher outside leaves and central choke cannot. TO STORE: Globe artichokes are best eaten on the day they are bought, but will keep in a plastic bag in the crisper section of the fridge for up to two days. PERFECT PARTNERS: Tomato, basil, white wine, lemon, capers, chicken, lamb, parmesan cheese, parsley, bacon. QUICK IDEA: Brush prepared artichokes with extra virgin olive oil and cook on a chargrill pan or barbecue until just tender.

Green onions Sometimes labelled shallots, this member of the onion family can be added to so many dishes for its flavour and bright colour. Store in a plastic bag in the crisper section of your fridge for up to a week. PERFECT PARTNERS: Bacon, fish, potato, peas, tomato, chicken, beef, ginger. QUICK IDEA: Combine thinly sliced green onion, grated ginger, soy, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil for a quick dipping sauce. Cherries Wonderful in sweet dishes such as tarts, meringues and pies, cherries also make a lovely addition to cocktails and savoury salads. Select cherries with green stems still attached; they should look plump with shiny skin. Store in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to four days. PERFECT PARTNERS: Dark chocolate, goat’s cheese, roast turkey, roast pork, cinnamon, orange, star…
