I discovered Waitrose Kitchen magazine while in London with my family last week. I know, everyone always complains about British food. However, these days the Brits seem able to cook up some pretty delicious meals from what's popped up in the back garden. Or allotment. It must be because of that love of gardening they are also known for.
I'll make a second batch of Stephanie Alexander's tzatziki from this past weekend to plop on top of the purple sprouts I bought on Sunday, just for this recipe.
--- After dinner follow up:
At first the idea of grilling and baking the meat seemed redundant, but I followed the instructions and it worked out really well. The meat even held in the oven and stayed warm without drying out, so that my kids could finish watching their TV show before we ate. This new reward system for finishing their homework quickly and without complaint seems to be working well.
The meatballs and lavash were very popular at the table, and 3 out of 4 of us ate the salad and tzatziki, as expected. Sprouts always leave me feeling live I've got a mouthful of fur, so next time I'll cut the stems off and toss the tops with some baby lettuces. If I'm lucky the Sassy Salad seeds I just bought will have magically sown themselves in the garden and will be ready for harvest by then.
