Buttered sprouts with chestnuts & bacon - quartered the recipe for xmas lunch. Shredded the sprouts (the kids prefer them that way). Nice but I think it could have done with some garlic and a higher proportion of bacon and nuts
Couscous halloumi salad. Super fast to prepare, and easy to modify with any veggies on hand (onion, red pepper, broccoli), or substitute feta for halloumi. Short on time, no need to grill the cheese, just cube it and toss into the warm couscous to get a little melty while you prep the veg. Tasty on it's own - I've never even tried it with the dressing.
