After an extravagant meal of pancakes yesterday at a friend’s, Mr M and I were both ready for a simple meal. Today’s dinner did just that.
I chopped onions, celery and carrots and then fried in oil until soft. Parsnips, potatoes and pearl barley then went in. A litre of stock and some bay leaves went in then dinner simmered for an hour. Simples.
Served up with some bread, it was tasty and filling, but very low on wow factor. Mr M gave it 7 out of 10.
