My housemate Ian got a Jamie Oliver cookbook for Christmas from his girlfriend. This has been part in causing a very cooking intensive new year so far. Home cooked meals so far has included me doing a foil baked gamon with potatoes and onion (not a Jamie recipe), Ian doing homemade meatballs with pasta and a beef roast and yesterday I cooked a chicken ragu with leeks.

While we have been using a lot of butter and cream in some of these dishes they hopefully still reasonably healthy. They at least taste much better than the normal stuff I toss together for dinner :)

Hopefully we can keep it up at Jamie will be proud of us :)

Butter and cream mmmm – as long as you are eating in moderation (e.g. not stuffing yourself with large plates) and don’t have a weight or cholesterol problem those are perfectly fine.

As John said, things like delicious butter and cream are fine as long as you don’t eat too much. Personally I’d prefer to eat less of a tasty meal made with butter and cram than eat more of a less tasty meal. Mmm…

I think it’s time to go do something with the bags of spices my sister game me for Christmas.
