Well, the long weekend is over and Wednesday has turned into Monday, complete with the back to work blues. As I'm still working late shifts, I decided to crack on with some cooking this morning, so that Z wouldn't have too much on her hands at the end of the day. I had grand plans but only so many hours.
Using the remains of the roast beef from the weekend and rummaging around in the fridge, I came up with the wherewithal to make a beef and chorizo stew. This was going to be the filling for a Spanish inspired cottage pie, with a saffron mashed potato top but I ran out of time before going to work.
In the end Z boiled some potatoes and reheated the stew in time for me to get home from work. It wasn't quite the meal that I imagined but it was tasty never the less. With a little more time and working with fresh ingredients, I will come back to the Spanish Cottage Pie one day.
