I could probably write a full 5,000 word essay on what my Ideal Dinner would be. But as I currently don’t have the time to do so, let me cut straight to the conclusion: It would be something like this dish.
Easy to create after a full day working? Check.
A full complement of vegetables included in the recipe? Check.
Bang it in the oven and forget about it while it cooks? Check.
Easily sourced ingredients? Check.
Of course, the ideal dinner can vary from night to night, depending on any number of variables. But this one definitely hit the sweet spot. It helps that our local butcher Drings has the most amazing sausages. But still.
Calling a dish an ideal dinner is fairly high praise, I think. We will be enjoying this again. And again.
