Gosh, it's nice to be back in my own house. I'm taking advantage of having my own kitchen again and the fact that I'm wokring from home to try and get back into the hang of this cooking malarkey again. I I've only cooked about 4 times in the last 3 months which sucks - lots of fish and salad in San Fran, the abortive roast beef there too, some lovely veal chops http://flickr.com/photos/hitherto/391540520/ and bangers and mash once. Oh, and chalet style carbs with carbs over new years when snowboarding. So, for lunch today I scavenge together a leek, an unopened packet of peanuts and some ham and made a beschamel sauce with parmesan, cooked some big tubey pasta, tossed it with the leeks that had been sauteed with the peanuts, shredded the ham and mixed that in then topped the whole thing off with more parmesan and some breadcrumbs and slung it under the grill to brown. It's just come out now and I'm waiting for it to cool a little but it smells fantastic. I missed cooking - especially little off-the-cuff dishes - so much.
