    I'm having my spicy chickpea recipe (posted last week), with chicken thighs which have been browned first, and then put back on the top to cook with the lid on, last five mins with the lid off to make the skin nice and crispy. I've cooked enough for the weekend since there's only me!

    DH had steak and I had duck breast both with chips, cauli, runner beans, carrots and mushrooms. Also did a Stilton sauce for the steak. Washed down with a bottle of cava. Peach cooked in honey and amaretto for pudding.

    It's really easy too. Cut peach into halves, drizzle with honey and a splash of amaretto, a tablespoon of water and put in the oven for about 15 minutes - or you can cheat and give it a minute in the microwave :p You can add other fruit (I sometimes put raspberries in with it), blanched almonds or crunched up amaretti biscuits.
    Served with ice cream or cream
