After a week of not cooking, I was determined to reclaim my place at the hob tonight. I wanted to come back with a bang, but needed inspiration. We set off to the Kirkstall Deli Market hoping to stumble upon the one ingredient that would shape our meal. If you haven't been to the Kirkstall Deli Market can I suggest that you give it a try. Even today, in the pouring rain, there was a good mix of hot and cold food stalls. Even the local allotment society had a stall and at £1 for a huge bag of rhubarb, I'm glad they were there.
The inspiration finally came from Round Green Farm. I didn't try any of their venison burgers or sausages, which were being cooked, but the offer of two packs of haunch steaks for £10 was too good an offer to miss. Meat in the bag, I nibbled my way around the rest of the stalls picking up more ingredients for future meals.
After the market we had a less enjoyable food trip around a supermarket. We had planned this prior to the fun at Kirkstall Abbey and it gave us the opportunity to pick up the rest of the ingredients for tonight's meal. I think it was the heavy rain that made me crave the comfort of braised red cabbage and who doesn't want roast potatoes?
