    I had a friend round yesterday so made chorizo and celeriac tortilla with salad (home-grown lettuce).

    Today I am making chicken in a creamy garlic and lemon sauce with artichoke hearts. Serving it with home grown green beans, cauliflower and celeriac dauphinoise.

    Are the artichoke hearts fresh or canned??  I've never figured out how to deal with fresh artichokes.  And I've never cooked celeriac!!!

    @Brie - I found these directions easy to follow and they worked as promised Globe Artichokes with Shallot Vinaigrette | Recipes | Delia Online

    Had soft boiled eggs with butter and marmite in brown pitta bread accompanied by hot vegetable salad this evening as it was quite chilly when I got back from my walk. Am just about to make coffee and then investigate the cooled aquafaba meringues in the oven so wish me luck.

    I’ve stripped the remaining roast chicken from yesterday’s roast, and there is loads of it! Some is earmarked for chicken and leek pot pies later in the week (diced cooked chicken and sautéed leeks in a cream sauce, with a cheesy mashed potato topping), but there will still be plenty of meat left over so have decided to make fried chimichangas with spicy refried beans, sliced chicken, peppers and cheese. I don’t have any wraps but I have plain flour, salt and vegetable oil so will have a bash at making my own.

    The chicken carcass has been in the slow cooker all morning and the stock smells gorgeous. Will make soup of some kind for tomorrow’s lunch.

    @Brie They were just canned atichokes. When the we had the big covid famine in the shops and the shelves were bare it was the only tinned beg they had in store and so I bought a few cans. I jus threw them in the tortilla mixture and they were lovely.

    Tonight I had chicken with roast veg and salad.
