Thanks to everyone who commented on my detox post! Managed to get through a Monday without coffee, so that sets me up well for the rest of the week. Just a quick post today - I wanted to share with you my Saturday-night post-detox reward dinner, made up of food I'd been craving all week.
1. Pepper Steak
2. Baked Potato
3. Creamed Spinach
I splashed out on an organic piece of porterhouse, and cooked it using the recipe from Nigella's How to Eat, (previously made here). The sauce was made by deglazing the pan with some marsala and a tiny knob of butter. I topped the baked potato with a small amount of butter, some grated cheddar cheese, light sour cream (as if it made a difference - hah!) and chives. For the creamed spinach I just cooked some chopped onion, added defrosted frozen spinach, some flour and a dash of cream.
No wine because I rarely crave it, and it usually doesn't bother me whether I drink or not. But that meal, just by itself, was the perfect weekend indulgence.
