Today was one of those forgetful, slightly shabby, disorganised kind of days. In and amongst forgetting my phone charger and not having enough cereal in for the kids’ breakfasts, I grabbed a (non-labelled) tub of food out of the freezer to take to work for my lunch.
Having no clue as to what was inside I was in for a surprise when I discovered I’d dug out some leftover vegetable samosa filling! When I made my discovery the veg was partially defrosted so I was committed. Undeterred, I grabbed some wholemeal flatbreads that were lurking in the freezer too, some mango chutney and a pot of cannellini bean pate (the kids’ new ‘hummus’) and hoped for the best.
And do you know what? It was the best (surprise) lunch I’ve had in a long time! I even made The Man of the House jealous when I described to him my rescued catastrophe of a lunch.
I spread some of the bean pâté onto one half of the flatbread, topped with heated samosa mixture and drizzled some mango chutney over.
I may even repeat it another day.
