Kale and Smoked Mackerel Kedgeree.


I was saying yesterday , I hate cooking. The thing that used to be my relaxation has rapidly become a miserable depressing chore. Done whilst a child wines or cries. Shopping done on sterile online shopping. And worst since I got pregnant with Isobel ( who is now 3 months old and lovely) , I am actually happiest with a sandwich and a packet of crisps. Is it hormonal , I don’t know all I do know is I need to beat this because it isn’t me and I owe them better

So once a week a new lovely blogged dish, first a kedgeree packed full of goodness tastes amazing.

    Glad to see you back. I always enjoy the look of your food and used to cook your spicy pork shoulder with Chinese spicing all the time when my kids were very wee – it made me feel sane. Hang in there, it will pass and you’ll get the bug back. Tiredness is a killer
