Warming simple supper for two

Warming simple supper for two

Oh my god… the rain. It’s so flipping miserable. Where has the summer gone?? With a great friend coming for supper, my plans for chicken salad Β were scuppered as I dragged my waterlogged self home.

You must give it a whirl. Continue reading
