Things are very quiet around here again, I do apologize. That’s just life sometimes, eh?

We were having a serious dinner dilemma tonight, we hadn’t taken anything out of the freezer to defrost so had were a bit stumped on what to cook. We settled on a mushroom and potato gratin, and yummy it was. I’m not convinced it was entirely ‘diet friendly’ but the dentist told me to only eat soft foods today, so I’m going to blame her.

Peel and thinly slice enough potatoes for how many people you are feeding, Boil until very nearly done. Meanwhile fry off some mushrooms with some crushed garlic, mustard powder and thyme. Also, whip up a quick cheese sauce, flour, milk, cheese, black pepper. When everything is ready, layer it up in an ovenproof dish. Potatoes, mushroom, cheese sauce, and so on. At the very top at some extra grated cheese, for extra cheesy goodness. We like cheese in this household.

Pop it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes on 180 degrees c. Voila. We served with the very humble…er…fish finger.
