mozzarella, peach, basil and parma ham salad

We've got crossed wires tonight, although not in a terrifying "you're not the person I thought I married" way. More in a "I'm making salad because I thought we were going out... oh, that's next week. Well, we've still got salad because I've made it." It's a fairly drama-free marriage round our way.

So, salad tonight because I thought we were going out to look at the prints from a free photoshoot Ana and Milo went to last week. And because the Bank Holiday has mangled Ocado's deliveries, dinner is entirely dependent on what the John Lewis Food Hall on Oxford street has in stock. Mozzarella, peach, basil (from my homegrown plant) and prosciutto crudo salad it is...

You can't go wrong can you? It's weird how some dishes just catch the imagination though. It's been one of our staples since 2005, and I've made it at least eight times this year alone but suddenly there's variations of it popping up everywhere, and most of them feature griddled peaches. I might give that a spin next time...

Food of the Milos
I can't really remember what he had for tea today, suffice to say he spent most of it riding it around Barnes. For dinner *however*, he had a large splodge of last night's pasta with cherry tomato sauce.

  1. You had the same thought as me on this, I keep seeing versions of it all over the place too. Simon whatsisface (the plonker from something for the weekend) is on a magazine somewhere this month with his offering..

    ..btw, I have made several attempts to comment on the blog recently and it keeps coming up with service unavailable so I hope this works..

  2. Yay! oh...I hope this works too.....
