I spent 20 minutes last night julienning a/ NINJIN b/ potatoes c/ green peppers in order to make a delicious "tricolore" salad for lunch today. I cannot find my knife sharpener (not that I am at all convinced it does anything anymore), and my slicey-knife is totally blunt. Slow. Progress.

Still, it was all worth it after I fried up all those lovely sliced vegetables (howto: soak potatoes, add oil to pan, carrots first, then potato, then green pepper, then add salt and pepper originally from this book which is a good no nonsense lunchbox affair), and then I remembered today is a rare office outing for lunch*, and I needn't bring anything...

Still, I am sure it will be fine for up to a week in the fridge. What could possibly go wrong?

Anyway. Pffft. Mandolines are for wimps with no knife technique anyway...

*Balfour! A place I have been walking past for years. It's been extended and refurbed, but they still do a set lunch which actually looks quite good!

Mandolines are for people who like to slice their fingers as well as their food - scary things. It sounds like a lovely lunch, and should definitely be fine tomorrow.
