Tonight I managed dinner in under 30 minutes but no, it wasn’t one of Jamie Oliver’s, I am sorry to say. This was super simple for a change. I didn’t feel like I was tying myself in knots trying to beat some kind of record. But I will go back to Jamie Oliver because it is a challenge and his food is truly delicious. The man knows his flavours.
