|Perfect winter fodder|
Tonight, one thing lead to another and I had to come up with an impromptu meal for me. Whilst it's been great to have the liberation of being able to just eat cereal or cheese and crackers for tea, I'd planned on something warming tonight (my mum's cauliflower soup) and when that got cancelled, I had to scour the fridge for something else equally 'hug-in-a-bowlish'.
Step forward Mr Bridestock's Chorizo and Butter Bean stew. It was one of my early makes on this blog and I came about the recipe because my lovely cousin who was partly the inspiration for this blog posted about it on her own blog. The recipe has particular nostalgia for Laura as it's the first meal that David ever cooked for her.

I'd forgotten just how amazingly tasty this dish is and it's so simple. It's definitely going to become a staple store cupboard tea for me throughout this winter. You can find the recipe here on Laura's blog and my original post on it, complete with rubbish picture here. The picture above is from when I made it again tonight. Not much better, but Instagram definitely helped a bit!
Having cooked the recipe again, I decided that I could celebrate 'The Best of the 366 Recipe Challenge' by revisiting some recipes that I really enjoyed and cooking them all over again now the pressure to do different things is off.
So keep your eyes peeled. The posts will be sporadic but just like with everything else in life - I'm a bit rubbish at letting go of something good!
