hearty vegetable pie

Having wolfed my chick pea and tomato soup in three seconds in a freezing Cavendish Square at lunchtime, I begin fantasising about dinner from about 1400. It's not a good place to be in for a growing lad, but luckily for some reason we've got a stack of biscuits in the office which keep me going until home time.

So, the question of the day is: Chilli, chorizo & butter bean casserole or hearty vegetable pie? A quick browse of the fridge reveals a few lip carrots, a leek and a courgette in the salad tray. Waste not want not, I take the executive decision to do the pie with Delia's cheesy leek topping:

We have it with peas, although for the first time in a long time I don't quite get the moistness right and some of the lentils burn to the bottom of the pan, which is vexing. It's okay but it does mean tomorrow's left-overs will need an extra dose of worcestershire sauce or something to loosen it up.

Food of the Milos
The usual breakfast at Julia's - chocolate cheerios - followed by a mighty Pepperami and cheese pizza for lunch. Get him! Sadly he doesn't have any chick pea, tomato and chorizo soup for dinner, so Ana knocks him up a dippy egg, with steamed carrots and yoghurt. Get him, again!
