What’s for Tea?

It’s simple – you tell us what you’re eating. It’s good if it’s ‘Fife Diet’ – but if it isn’t tell us anyway – ‘fess up! This post is all about the comments – your comments – so tell us what you’ve been cooking and eating, from triumphs to cuilinary disasters…

So … what’s for tea tonight in your house?

    Hi Mark – sounds great – we have some ideas on ‘make it local for kids’ from the workshops Lisa’s been running – we’ll start publishing them on the blog. Anyone else got ideas on how to get reluctant 6 year olds to eat up? I’m sure it’s not just a challenge for local-eaters but families everywhere.

    Dear Fife Diet,

    We have been feeling smug recently after having had some Fully Fife meals in the last few weeks.

    The main source has been our allotment patch at the Broom Hill Gardens which is now providing us with our veg. Potatoes, Onions, Cabbage, Beans, Squashes… have all been harvested.

    Recent meals have been:-

    Mackerel (Fished out of the Forth) boiled Cabbage and Potatoes.
    Bean and Puddledub bacon salad with Baked Potatoes.
    Mackerel (Fished form the Forth again) Potato wedges, Pumpkin sliced with Garlic.

    While we tuck in enthusiastically our 6 year old daughter still refuses to really eat anything but our youngest, 18 months, is delighting in eating peas from the pod and anything else she finds….

    Cheers for the inspiration.

    We’re loving strawberries too! This recipe is great for making with children.

    Strawberry oven-baked risotto

    250g strawberries
    1 litre of milk
    1 lemon – juiced
    100g soft brown sugar
    200g Arborio or Carnaroli rice
    1 cinammon stick, halved
    250ml cream
    Oven dish greased with unsalted butter

    To make –
    Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
    Hull the strawberries
    Mix the milk and lemon juice. Add the sugar and mix well.
    Put the risotto rice and strawberries in the oven dish and add the cinammon stick
    Pour the milk mixture over the rice and strawberries
    Bake for 40 mins or until the rice is soft – I gave mine a stir half-way through
    Serve with double cream.

    Broccoli, onion, pepper and rice stir fry with ‘Canny Cook’ wild rice. Nice.
