I was feeling a bit inadequate, as we are not eating as healthily as we could and I am sure bear would prefer healthier meals. He prefers jacket spuds to chips and loves broccoli and celery sticks and I just feel that I need to raise my game. I clicked randomly on a Sainsbury link that I hoped would give me some ideas for inexpensive and easy meals as I am not as with it as I should and I am fretting about father and to be honest I have no idea how to shake up my cooking.
The link took me to a recipe for sumac sardines with smashed chickpea salsa. It needed a YouTube video to work it and used 10 fresh sardines - where the jeff am I going to get fresh sardines? More importantly, there is no way on this planet that I am trusting myself with a sharp knife and a slippery fish. If they need gutting and boning I am stuffed. It was also not as inexpensive as I had hoped.
I now feel the complete fail.
There is always a bright side. After this I thought it would be worth having a look at Tesco's website and they have recipes as well. I probably won't serve the beef salad recipe in jars, as suggested, but I may well serve it up on a plate - it looks very possible, may be reasonably healthy and not as outrageously expensive as I feared. Obviously there would be some tweaks and substitutions, but it's definitely doable.
