Isn’t it a bit tragic that the time of year when you’re supposed to be healthy and abstemious is also the time when you most need comfort food? I’m coping through a mixture of ‘healthy comfort food recipes’ and ‘denial’.
The first M&S Dine in for Two of the New Year is on this weekend, and it can help with either of those approaches. The menu has a whole cooked chicken which you could use in salads; it also a haddock gratin which you could pair with garlic mushrooms for a creamy, cheesey, garlicky, ‘feck off January’ meal.
As ever, it costs €13.50 It apparently now costs €14, runs for six days and the menu is available on the M&S website.
