In a very Dark Knight Rises approach, I returned to the kitchen with a new ingredient at my fingertips. Chips.
Okay, so chips are something I’ve cooked a few times before but surprisingly enough have never featured on my blog – so here’s their 15 minutes of fame. Also featuring in this article, chicken and baked beans with barbecue sauce.
Considering its simplicity in preparation, cooking and well, eating, it was absolutely delicious and it all started off with the potatoey substance. I threw (possibly too many) chunky chips onto a pizza baking tray and threw it into a pre-heated oven.
Exactly five minutes later I emptied my chicken in breadcrumbs onto a proper baking tray and placed it on the shelf above my pizza-tray cooking chips in the oven.
As you can imagine, having 15-20 minutes or so to kill, I did some cleaning before tomorrows flat inspection. Seriously, I cleaned.
I’m actually a really good cleaner, when I do it. I throw ‘I Want To Break Free’ on my iPod and vacuum away…
And then the bleeper goes off and I have to start my baked beans.
It was while I was serving up that I realised that this may have been the last thing my dad cooked me before I left for university – or at least the last thing he cooked before my mum filled me up on homemade lasagnas and pasta bakes.
But whoever cooked it, this was my dinner tonight and it sure was nice.
