Simply good food to share from a mum who likes to feed her kids well. A guide and a little bit of inspiration for those who'd like to cook a bit more but haven't got the time or the energy to meal plan. I'll post daily/weekly updates of recipes that work for me. Good food doesn't have to involve hours of hard work and preparation.

Slow roast belly of pork
I felt I was in a Gastropub tonight with this meal. I bought the belly of pork yesterday at Marks and Spencer and just followed the cooking instructions on the packet. I did turn the heat up for the last 20 minutes just to make sure the skin became crispy, and I didn't cook it for the full 2½ hours. More like 2 hours. It is incredibly tasty, probably due to the fat content, which let's face it does provide the taste. I accompanied the pork with creamy mashed potato and savoy cabbage, with an apple sauce. The apples haven't made it into chutney yet.
