We tend to do a typical Sunday roast quite a lot, which don't get me wrong we do love, but we wanted a bit more of a healthy menu today. We've been on holiday recently to Portugal (post to follow!) ...and it rained - a lot - so we had a lot of reading time and spotted a Summer Roast Chicken in the May/June issue of Jamie Oliver magazine we wanted to try. It's basically using the usual technique of mashing up some butter, herbs and garlic to rub over the chicken but in this recipe Jamie suggests just using basil in the butter & garlic combination then to scatter lemon slices over the chicken to add to the Summer feel. Works really well, delicious.
I would highly recommend this magazine by the way if you are a foodie. A subscription was bought as a gift for my husband and we got a bit hooked and renewed it. It's a good read and has some great recipe ideas (and we need more recipes in our life!!! ha ha - have you seen our cook book shelf?!).

Finally there was a couscous recipe I had spotted on a recipe card that came through with one of our Abel & Cole deliveries recently. It was really simple, just raisins, spinach and pinenuts with a lemon dressing. You can see the recipe here - Catalan Couscous
