In case anyone is flagging accompanying me on my walk to Europa Point, I thought I would put up a quick food post.
I am not a fan of packaged food. At all.
I make all our soups, sauces, and casseroles – the only occasional lapse is when I buy some vegetarian escalopes or steaks from the supermarket. We all run out of inspiration at times, and they are handy to pull out of the freezer.
But I must confess I do like the spring rolls at Marks and Spencer. They are excellent. They are not cheap – £2.99 for six tiny rolls – ie 50p each. In fact I was feeling so mean the other day that I only cooked three and split them in half to serve as a starter.
I was very pleased with myself at this economic measure – especially as it meant I could have the remaining three all to myself for lunch the following day.
Spring rolls need a good dipping sauce. So into the pot went:
extra virgin olive oil
soya sauce – tamari
parsley (from the finca)
some fresh green onion
chilli sauce – I would have preferred fresh chillies but had used them all.
I made enough dipping sauce for the following day. Until someone decided to mop it up with his bread. Oh well, at least it was enjoyed.
