This year’s Mother’s Day is likely to be a mild and sunny one….so it’s the perfect time to have some lighter dishes on the menu. A roast on Sunday is a must for many and I am looking forward to sitting back and letting my children cook a roast for me.
My daughter, a good cook, will roast a chicken I’m sure…it’s something of a signature dish of hers and very different from my own. She opts for lemon, herbs and seasonings and cooks at speed, whilst I, in the past, would go for a heartier stuffing and a longer, slow roast. Now we meet in the middle….with a tender slower-roast chicken flavoured with herbs, garlic and lemon cooked so that my post wls requirements are met.
This is the recipe I worked incredibly hard on for my latest ‘Return 2 Slender…Second Helpings’ book. It’s in there on page 41 and is simply served with a vegetable gratin. If you want the recipe then do email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward on to you. I think it may well be the one served on Sunday!
Pudding couldn’t be simpler…I’m suggesting an apple and nectarine crumble…you’ll find the recipe in the green section and on the home page (under latest recipes).
In the meantime I do hope that you have a wonderful day with your family and if you’re a mother that maybe you will enjoy a festive bouquet or two!
HAPPY MOTHERING SUNDAY!
