Frankenstein Dinners! (aka Batchelorette Meals for the faint hearted!)

Before I begin, I will explain the meaning of Frankenstein Dinners/Batchelor-ette Meals.  They are the sort of meal you concoct when you either;

a-live on your own

b-live with someone, but they happen to be out for the night.

They’re the sort of meal where you rebel against society, against everything your parents taught you about your main meal of the day, against everything anyone has EVER told you about what you should and should not eat for your dinner.  This rebellion can liberate your food cupboards into a veritable wonderland! Yes, you CAN have mushy peas with salmon! And more importantly, if you want to eat peanut butter out of the jar while the salmon is in the pan and the peas are in the microwave, guess what…you can!! 

The freedom from frying an egg to go with your chicken and mushroom pie and crunchie ice lolly is unlike any other! As is making HUGE sarnies with egg, cheese, marmite, peanut butter and cucumber! Lushness in your mouth!!

But. 

I have very recently come to the conclusion that not all of my Batchelorette meals are as tasty as I would like to think they could be.  For instance, tuna mayo+egg mayo+spinach+noodles=YUM (not all mixed in, though…obviously!) as is chicken dippers+scampi+cheesy beans=YUM as well!

What does NOT work, in any way shape or form (please take heed-I lie not) is

MACKEREL, BEETROOT AND FIG SALAD (WITH MATURE CHEDDAR.)

Trust me, it is not worth the curiosity of even trying! There was not very much pleasure involved in this particular meal, unless you separate said ingredients into small piles and eat individually…starting with the beetroot.  The only rebellion I experienced with this particular meal was that I didn’t want to admit defeat, and it was all hideously good for me! Yes, I ate every last purple fishy mouthful. I am NOT a quitter.

On a more positive note, tonight’s meal of tuna pasta with courgette and leftover lasagne and peanut butter was a raging success!
