I don't know where the day has gone! We went to church this morning, but apart from that, none of us seem to have done anything at all today. The baby has taken well to his food, and is now having two small tastes each day, one at lunchtime (puréed pear today) and one at dinner (courgette and potato, puréed and then mixed together). This is what I made for our dinner tonight, after realising that it really was nearly supper time. It's one of my favourites and, thankfully, quite popular with the rest of the family too.
Potato & Bacon Layer
900g potatoes, washed and thinly sliced (no need to peel them)
1 large onion, halved and sliced
170g streaky bacon, chopped
300ml double cream
75g cheddar cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to 200°c. Cook the potatoes and onion in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain, and then tip half into a large ovenproof dish. Scatter over the bacon bits, and then add the rest of the potatoes and onion to the dish. Mix the cream and milk together and season with pepper. Pour over the potatoes and onion in the dish, then sprinkle the top with cheese. Bake for 40 minutes, then serve with a green salad.
