|Fish cakes, chips, mushy peas and coleslaw.
Not thinking that it might be a little hectic making fish cakes, chips and mushy peas while at the same time entertaining and feeding a nine-month-old, I went full-steam ahead. As a result, I only partially followed Jenny's instructions. For instance, her recipe is titled Baked Fishcake and Mushy Pea Supper. The key word being "baked." I neglected to bake both the fries and the fish cakes and ended up frying them in a pan - a much less healthy option. Whoops!
Anyway, since I was a bit all over the place, I didn't do a bang-up job documenting this adventure. I'll probably try it again. I can tell you that for the fish, I poached some Scottish Haddock, used a couple eggs and used additional flour since I couldn't find the breadcrumbs. The chips were pan fried (very yummy, by the way), and the peas turned out very well as I let them sit for a bit in the pot after adding a bit of mint and sugar and having a go at them with a potato masher.
I also made a major discovery: Jeremy is very much like his mother. He'll eat just about anything, but he's definitely not a fan of peas. I mean, I know he's not a fan of strained peas - he was never as eager to eat them as other vegetables. However, I gave him a big spoonful of them and he made a face like I've never seen! I wish I had my camera on me for it.
Anyway, please take a look at the real thing, visit Hungry Jenny's Baked Fishcake and Mushy Pea Supper.
