Claire suggested the idea of doing food in 5 on Monday in an email, which I have to confess I only skimmed before agreeing it was a great idea. Now under pressure to come up with something that either has five ingredients or takes just five minutes to cook, I admit I am struggling. Does a vodka and tonic count (vodka, tonic, ice, slice and, uh, a glass)? After all, as I limp towards the summer holidays, a liquid diet sounds appealing. But no, Claire chastised, it wouldn’t suffice.
So tee-totallers rejoice – here instead is a ham and potato salad. One without mayonnaise but mustard and butter instead.
For the purposes of this blog it has five ingredients, but it could just as easily have three.
Sorry for the lack of picture, but my camera is out of battery and I will upload when I find the charger.
