I have decided to cook a roast chicken dinner for tomorrow's lunch in honor of the change in seasons, I am about ready to have a break from the salads and think about roast potatos, Yorkshire Puddings and root vegetables again.
So early this morning before anyone else woke I could be found in 'the reading chair 'with my cookery books.
I love this book: Home Cooking by Rachel Allen.
It is the perfect family cook book.
Inspired I got into the kitchen.
I made a huge batch of Chilli-con-Carne for the freezer using the Roast Tomato and Garlic recipe (see Flowers, Tomato's and Plums post) as a base sauce.
I made cupcakes and mini cakes for a sweet treat for after tomorrows lunch using the recipe's from the book 'Cupcakes from the Primrose Bakery'
