Okay, if you saw my last post about Jamie's 15-Minute Meals, you will remember that I did my meal in 23 minutes and left the kitchen in a complete state.
My husband today beat my time by a whole minute and managed to fill the dishwasher and put everything away as he went along. Oh dear! I have to admit he is so much more the domestic goddess than I.
Steve chose to make Chorizo Carbonara and Catalan Market Salad. He was impressed with the recipe and really felt that it was a more complex meal than you would expect for the time it took to prepare. He thought the 15 minutes was ambitious but actually he was closer to 15 minutes than 30 and he had managed to clean up after himself as he went along.
The boys and I enjoyed the meal and we feel sure we would make this again.
A few more meals from this book coming up. I am very pleased with it, actually, and think it will be fairly well used. I do need to beat Steve next time, though. Or maybe just tell him that as he is better at it than me, he should carry on and cook all our meals.
