[Saturday 3rd December 2011]
My enthusiasm for cooking last night continued into the weekend. I got up this morning with a sudden urge to bake some bread, and decided to use some of the leftover olives and capers from last night's pasta sauce to make it a bit more interesting.
For lunch I made a lentil and tomato soup to go with the bread, and for a change I pureed it to see what it would be like. I think it's probably better left chunky, but it was an interesting experiment nonetheless.
In the evening I made bruschetta using my bread as a starter for dinner - I pan fried the bread with a little olive oil and garlic, and topped it with just tomatoes, sea salt and pepper. For the main course I made a red wine and porcini risotto, using some dried porcini I'd bought in Italy, and finished off with a drizzle of truffle oil. Although I say so myself, it was all very good!
Didn't actually leave the flat all day!
