Blogging has been very thin on the ground lately as alas, my laptop that was literally held together with sellotape finally gave up the goat. I've therefore had to nab a quick moment on my sisters computer in order to write up this Lads Night In special.
Now I should start by sayin that Gav is very unadventurous when it comes to food, leading to me never bothering cooking for him before. However one slow Sunday I decided that this must change and came up trumps with these 'Lad' friendly recipes, with the ability to win over the most hesitant of diner.
We started off with a homemade pizza. Having never made my own before I was really excited by this simple recipe and can't wait to try other toppings that aren't often available in the supermarket (I'm not a big fan of takeaway pizza - I find them too greasy and lacking in fresh, vibrant tastes). Here's the recipe, taken from the GoodFood website:
175g ciabatta bread mix, plus a little extra for dusting
large handful basil leaf
1 avocado , halved and thinly sliced
splash lemon juice
125g ball reduced-fat mozzarella
225g cherry tomatoes, sliced
