“Kinda Sausage Cassoulet, Warm Broccoli Salad and Meringues” from “30 Minute Meals”

Time taken: 50’53”

Tom: Well, that didn’t take 30 minutes.

Kirstin: No, it didn’t take as little time as he said it would, but it was still good for a cassoulet. Having made that, I don’t understand why a cassoulet has to take all day.

Nancy: It did have cassoulet texture to the sausages. And the herbs were good.

Kirstin: Yes, there was sage in the breadcrumbs, and we had to put sage on the top. There was a lot of sage.

Tom: There was a lot of faffing around. I associate Jamie with simple recipes, not “deseed then grate the tomatoes, discarding the leftover skins” or whatever it was.

Nancy: What do we think of the broccoli?

Kirstin: It was alright…

Nancy: I liked it more than I expected to, and I liked the dressing, but I don’t think it was worth all that work. It would have worked with steamed broccoli and a bit of lemon. Too faffy.

Kirstin: But it did feel like the generation game! And we had three of us working on it. What was it on the conveyor belt? A cuddly toy?

Tom: I just helped with the tidying up at the end. This recipe involved a lot of bowls. And mess.

Nancy: The way the book is laid out… it’s a bit intense. You can’t read all the way through one dish’s recipe to see it from start to finish. It’s hard to see the continuity.

Kirstin: The dessert was good.

Nancy: It was. Yum!

Kirstin: Would you like another meringue?

Nancy: No, thank you.

Tom: I’ll have another one!

Nancy: And it didn’t take long to make.

Tom: But it didn’t take a negative amount of time. So it still ended up taking longer than 30 minutes overall.

Kirstin: God, I’ve got a whole month of this. I’m going to be knackered by the end of the month.

Nancy: He leaves no time to wash dishes or anything like that.

Kirstin: No, but he has minions to clear up his stuff. At least I had minions today!
