What's been on the Menu 4

The leeks in the garden have naturally all grown to full size at the same time so we have been having meals with them in mind.

Leek and Potato Soup

Leek and Smoked Fish Tart
Now this was a bit of a disaster because all the egg and milk mixture leaked (groan) out into the oven and we were left with just the leeks, fish and cheese topping (Aust Swiss a good substitute for Gruyere)
No recipe as I just tend to wing it. Chop up leeks, chop up fish add mixture of 1 egg to cup of milk and pour over (it usually sets and doesn't end up on the bottom of the oven) Sprinkle with cheese.

The yellow/smoked fish I mean is that one you can buy at the supermarket fish counter, still so cheap and tasty (although I'm sure some people don't like it eg. my sons) The piece for this dish was under a dollar. My mother used to cook that fish quite alot, with a white parsley sauce if I remember right. Some people call it smoked Cod and perhaps in the past it was but now days I don't think so.

We also had Meatballs. Albondigas in Spanish

By the time this was cooked we didn't feel like a big meal so just had a Tapas with one ball and some of the delicious juice in which they were cooked
