Warm Potato Salad & My Birthday!!!

Warm Potato Salad & My Birthday!!!

I LOVE my birthday and I don’t know why, maybe its the excuse to eat cake for every meal?! Or the fact that my babies shower me with handmade cards and paper bracelets?!! Either way this year I had a birthday cake made for me by my Peachicks… They even let Daddy help!!

And here it is…

Yep its a Jellyfish!!! My favourite animals!!

And here is my belated birthday lunch….

We had a fishy buffet, mussels, mackerel & lemon sole served with warm potato and leek salad, French stick and Olives.  Oh and don’t forget the glass of Rattler Cornish Cyder fresh from Healy’s (via Sainsburys our holiday stash has long gone… Is it April yet??!!).


For the four of us (E ate nothing but Olives) this worked out really cheap at £2.75 each. ( based on my supermarket app) To make it a dinner or for more people or a bit more of a party you could also add a cheeseboard, baby tomatoes, green salad, pate, chutneys, grapes, flavoured oils, fancy deli salads with sun dried tomatoes and the like as well as swapping basics bacon for more expensive stuff or French stick for an artisan loaf from that farmers market/ farm shop that you always want to go in but don’t have the time or excuse.. The list goes on ultimate pick and mix party lunch!!  Its fairly quick to make too the longest bit is debearding the mussels!

Warm potato salad
400g new potatoes sliced about inch thick par boiled
2 garlic cloves
Half Romano pepper
Half leek
100g cooking bacon into small chunks
1tbsp cider vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
1tbsp olive oil

Gently fry leek, pepper, garlic until soft with bacon.  Add potato s?lices and mix on gentle heat.
Add vinegar plus splash of water and continue to cook on low until potatoes soft, add more water if it starts to stick.
You can also add a dollop of vitalite or other df marg to make a dressing!
