As our last attempt wasn’t exactly a roaring success, I knew it was important that we got straight back on the bandwagon before we lost faith in the process. So the next day we returned to the land of pasta, something I knew dad couldn’t object to.
The challenge? Chorizo carbonara and catalan market salad. This was the best possible decision we could have made. For one thing, at around twenty minutes, it was our quickest attempt yet. For another, it was delicious and wonderfully refreshing on a hot day. We yet again had trouble finding the necessary vegetables – this time, chicory. We were already at our local Woolies and I couldn’t even be bothered looking up substitutes, so we just grabbed some kale and went with that. I know, I know. But it was fine! So, whatever.
It was wonderfully creamy, with a lot of flavour, and the Catalan salad was fab. Dad insists it was even better when he later had the leftovers at work. 5 Grumpy Dads.
