So, starting tomorrow, I've set myself the challenge of preparing a meal based around at least one ingredient from my stockpile. I'm beginning with the freezer.
For the uninitiated, this is an Arbroath smokie, a smoked haddock, originating from Auchmithie, a fishing village a few miles north of Arbroath. My smokie was one of two I bought at the Tobacco Factory market some time ago. We ate the first one the day we bought it, dotted with butter, flashed under the grill, with Mark's oaty groaty bread and diced beetroot. Its partner was frozen for a later date, which is now tomorrow.
A quick Google produced the ideal recipe, Cullen Spink, a variation on the traditional Cullen Skink. I have enough potatoes, onions and other ingredients to produce a meal for two. I know that my daughter will not eat so smelly a fish, and will be happy enough with yesterday's leftover sausage casserole.
Now that wasn't too hard, was it?
