Something I made earlier

Now I’m nearly 30 it’s time to don the pinny and talk to you about recipes. No, really. I had the nicest dinner…
Set some pasta going, and cook (boil, steam, roast, whatever) and mash up some butternut squash with a bit of butter. Add to chopped, fried onions with some chopped garlic and grated parmesan. Add the cooked pasta to the squash and onion mix (add a bit of the pasta water if it’s too dry) and grate some nutmeg over the top. I chucked in some cherry tomatoes. Goddamn that was good food.
All I have to do now is learn how to bake. Have I told you my theory that people can either cook, or bake, but not both? I put it down to baking needing a more precise and methodical manner than cooking, where you just shove anything into a pan and see how it goes. I’m going to try to bake parkin at the weekend; I’ll let you know how much of a disaster it is.
