An Easy Meal

Cut some veg into bits.

Tonight I used sweet potatoes, carrots, swedes, onions and sprouts.

Oil them and chuck them in the oven for 30-40 minutes at 180 C (250 F or Gas Mark 4)

Then add the chicken thighs.

Give it another 30-40 minutes.

Whip up some gravy (Julia insists on gravy) and serve, pretending it’s a proper roast dinner.

Make a mental note that next time I’ll put the sprouts in at the same time as the chicken.

The timings are approximate, as I was watching the Strictly Come Dancing results. That’s why it looks a bit burnt. I think burnt food is more tasty. Apart from sprouts. Burnt sprouts aren’t an improvement.

So there you go – roast dinner, negligible thought or work.

My sort of meal.

    My kind of meal, too! I used to pride myself on being an adventurous cook, but now that I am working more or less full time on my writing, those days have passed. Now, I am into relatively quick, tasty, and nutritious.

        We often use rosemary as we have plenty growing in the garden. Keep meaning to use balsamic but I keep forgetting – I’m just not sophisticated enough. πŸ™‚
