Self Catering Cottage - Any Ideas for simple, but classy meals.
We're heading away to a wee cottage in the English countryside for a week. Apart from visiting the tea rooms, we decided that we can have 2 nights in and prepare a meal at the cottage.
Does anyone have ideas for simple meals, where I don't have to travel with or buy alot of ingredients. A few fresh ingredients would be ideal. (Note, I am dairy allergic)
I was thinking of some nice salads with some grilled chicken, but I want to surprise my husband with something special. I already bought the champagne! :O)
There have been several recent threads about leg of lamb on the grill. That would be too much for you two, but how about lamb chops? Lamb is a always special in our house. Baby peas or asparagus would be my first choice, but they're out of season. Maybe tomatoes stuffed with an orzo-pesto salad for a side. Something with peaches for dessert (they go great with champagne). Maybe just sugared and allowed to get juicy, then served with a good vanilla ice cream and a florentine cookie/biscuit on the side. You could make the cookies at home and take with you. Or tuille cups.
