Recipe for a Rump and Potato Bake How to Make a Real Super Supper

The Origin Of This Meal

It was one of those days when you started out with a planned meal, when out of the blue, or should I actually say ominous grey clouds, along comes this totally unexpected obstacle which causes the entire meal plan to change.

What was planned was a Braai (BBQ), so the nice well matured rump was defroste, could not put that back into the fridge, for another day. Besides the heavens had only just opened up, not that I am complaning, we need the relief of a good presipiation, our annual rainfall figures are still down!

Be that as it may I would have to put on my thinking cap. So I raided the the fridge and came up with leanish pickings, no car with me today, so unable to nip out and get a few odds and ends. Besides I had the potatoes for the salad nearly boiled.

So here is what I came up with.

Ingredients

These are very basic and something that happened quite quickly.

Baby marrows six

six button mushrooms

an onion cut into small cubes

a medium sized carrot julienned

a teaspoon of powdered ginger

salt and pepper to taste

cayenne pepper to taste

4 potatoes

some chopped garlic to taste

paprika to taste

For a Light Salad

Tomato

Onion

Cucumber

Lemon Juice

Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper to taste

The Verdict

The meal was a success, the taste sensation terrific and the salad was only a light type of salad, sliced onion cucumber and tomato with a squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil.

This made a pleasant change from the usual, or some would say the traditional, fries (or chips), baked potato, mashed potato.

Ajcor, yes the one or two pot meals are great, less dishes to clean up faterwards, also find the tastes and flavours seem to combine better, adding a bit extra to the meal.

Sixty, suppose you could call it a fresh bubble and squeck, bu twith a bit more lattitude in what you want to put together with it. Would rather use bacon or cold sausages, if it were B&S.

Thanks for the comments Aj, and Sixty

Now you have made me hungry, wonder if I could bump together a quick bubble and squeack with a kasse griller and chilli, less cabbage more potato I think.

Or I Know what about a nice rye bread Welsh Rarebit, an extra dash of hot mustard.

OK, I give in easily today, as I only feel like a light salad, with a bit of feta cheese no olives lots of lettuce and flakes of cold roast chicken, a olive oil, lemon juice - freshly squeezed with finely chopped balsam leaf as a dressing.
