Gone Away

“I am the spectrum of discontent, and each colour takes me far less than a whole winter.”

Pocket of sunshine – Cooking Adventure #10

You know what’s great? Potatoes. You can’t really go wrong. Our path of cooking adventuring veered off into this versatile territory with our attempt at golden chicken, braised greens and potato gratin. Nom nom nom.

This took way longer than 15 minutes, hardly a surprise, but it was well worth it. The gratin is just the right kind of creamy and chicken and bacon is (as always) a killer combination. I’m pretty sure this was the first time I ever cooked a leek so that was interesting! For someone who never used to eat anything green, it’s quite a revelation to realise I actually like crisp, simple veggies.

Overall, don’t really have much to say about this dish because it was straightforward to pull together and everyone enjoyed it. It received 5 Grumpy Dads. Sound the gong of victory!
