I had a terrible handover on Saturday, one of those hangovers that lingers all day. A little too much red wine and Champagne at our work’s Christmas party I think.
So I was moping around all day feeling sorry for myself and generally drinking tea and nibbling dry biscuits.
However there was one good thing to come out of the day and that was that Will (the other half of Food4two) made a tasty meal for himself. I don’t think he will mind me saying he is an appalling cook, and because I cook all the time he has no need to learn. Every now and then I have to leave him to cook himself diner and he literally falls apart. Everything he either burns or undercooks.
But on Saturday he was peering into the fridge wondering what to have for lunch. He said he fancied something healthy and light, so as I sat with my plate of plain Birdseye Potato Waffles (don’t judge me, it was all I could stomach. And there is something comforting about the soft fluffy centre and crispy outside of a waffle) I said what about a salad with the left-over feta cheese?
This salad is what he came up with and I think it looks fantastic. Not only that but it tasted great too.
It was a layer of red little gem lettuce, finely sliced red onions, some roasted red peppers from a jar and sliced red grapes, dressed in olive oil and balsamic vinegar then covered in crumbled feta. The mix of sweet and salty was fantastic and even with my pathetic hangover I managed to stomach it and went back for several mouthfuls.
So now he has no excuse for not cooking, I will just show him this photo and remind him that he can. This might be my new hangover cure.
