Lamb Shanks in Red Wine with Carrots, Peas & Mash Potato.

Tuesday 31st May 2011

It’s not easy cooking for 5. Catering for everyone’s likes and dislikes can be quite a challenge. Some of the meals my family eat (My wife, Zephy & I) Mum & Dad wouldn’t eat and vice versa.

Here is an example of the tastes I try to provide for.

Dad doesn’t like spinach on it’s own, only in a dish but he loves carrots. Mum doesn’t like carrots but she’s quite partial to a pork chop. My wife was subjected too many pork chop as a child and as a result can’t stand them now but given half a chance would have most things covered in double cream. I rarely add cream to fruit or dessert and instead only use it for cooking. I, on the other hand, could eat scrambled eggs with every meal whereas my son, Zephyrus wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole but give him a plate of spinach with pine nuts, raisins & cream and he’ll lick the plate clean.

Different strokes for different folks I guess.

But one thing we all like is lamb, carrots, peas & mash.

Well, kind of…

…Dad doesn’t like peas. 😉

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.
