Anyway, balcony calamities aside I'm pretty much using parsley as a garnish on anything that sits still long enough in the kitchen to be garnished!
Now that the weather has plunged us into the depths of winter I'm really loving cooking hearty, one-pot meals. I'm going into full lazy cook mood and using tins of beans + canned tomatoes like they're going out of fashion!
I recently re-discovered a hand-written recipe in my recipe folder for a "sausage + white bean casserole" that I probably haven't cook in about 10 years. Just like fashion, it's back in vogue again! There was a bit too much liquid in the casserole (yes, I probably mis-read the instructions yet again) so I just added in some cous cous to soak up some of the moisture and voila, dinner is served!
I love how a sprinkle of parsley can added a much need pop of colour to an other rather beige looking dish...tasty but beige non-the-less!
