spinach, steam it in the water you wash it in, then mix in some sauteed onions/garlic/chilli

I think I would just do a green salad.maybe watercress and orange salad if i was feeling fancy.
what about lemon curd mousse for after? In each( 1 per person) small cup, ramekin or dish put 1 tablespoon of lemon curd. Whip up some cream and break up some meringue nests.Mix cream and meringue pieces toether. put on top of lemon curd layer .Bash Gingernut biscuits with rolling pin crumble gingernut biscuits on top.
This is a simple version of a recipe i stole from somewhere. Could use Mascarpone instead of cream or even Greek Yog.hope this doesn't involve to much shopping!

Sorrel - thank you for inspired watercress and orange salad - perfect - it was utterly divine - all of it (even if i say so myself) !

oh i'm so pleased! You actually inspired me to do a morrocan thingy tonight, so I am almost exploding with the amount of couscous we had! But it was you who put it in my head.Watercress is so yummy! i think it was my granny who used to put orange wih it. But then she also had a penchent for orange sandwiches!! Never seen anyone else in the world make such a thing Mad!

Ok - there was me thinking it was some modern, eclectic, cool moroccan vibe thing putting orange with salad...but it was your nan!

Good on her's DIVINE!
