Here in Australia we don’t have Martha Stewart so I really don’t know anything about her but I’m pretty sure she’s not a large lady and quite frankly that amazes me because I’ve cooked a couple of recipes from her website over the past month and the portion servings are enormous. I mean those 4 – 6 people are not going to leave the table hungry let me assure you. The first dish I cooked was a pasta ravioli bake and I didn’t have a baking dish large enough to hold the mixture, tonight I’m doing a chicken chilli and same problem, no saucepan big enough to cook it in. Portion distortion is going off, no wonder people are a bit podgy.
Impossible to judge though with recipes I find. Sometimes you cook something that says it’s going to feed six and you all end up with about a matchbox full.
I’m glad summer is here and we can get started on salads because it really is too hot to be eating chilli anyway. Well it’s not technically summer, it’s spring but it’s bloody hot today and I think tomorrow might actually be my first swim of the season in the ocean baths – 31 Celsius and only a month into spring.
