Chorizo and Bean Stew

For the second day running we have called upon the freezer to provide our evening meal.  We originally bought a second freezer so that we could cook and freeze gluts of vegetables from the allotment.  These days it is mainly used for cake and leftovers.  I just don't seem to be able to cook the right amount of food for two people, especially if it's a stew.

Back in February, after a great day out at Cornucopia, I cooked a chorizo and bean stew served with gurnard.  It was really nice, the fish was steamed over the stew, which added a richness to the dish and in turn the fish was perfectly cooked.

There was no fish left over from that meal, only the stew and it was still delicious.  Z had visited Dock Street Market during the day, to get a loaf of sour dough bread to have with the meal, and we still have a lawn of rocket in the garden so a side salad was easy to knock up.  I know it's reheated leftovers, but for a mid week meal that was fantastic.
