Beer-battered fish and chips

Saturday, 29th March 2014
Deep fried dinner tonight. My beer batter looks good but didn't come out as crispy as I had hoped. I suspect the fat was too old and not hot enough. The fish could also have done with a little more seasoning. Still it was all very good.
Served with tomato salad and home-made remoulade in two varieties!

Chicken legs and tomatoes

Friday, 28th March 2014
Thanks to Jamie Oliver for this one.
I used less garlic and chilli and added a can of cannellini beans, which made for a thicker sauce and suited me very well. They probably would have been better going in half an hour before serving, rather than right at the beginning. The chicken was good, but it didn't come out as tender as I would have liked.
Served with a sort of colcannon of mash, leeks and bacon.
