Hello my lovely readers! How are you all doing today?
It is Wednesday aka my FINAL day of lectures in 2012. This is either good (for obvious reasons) or bad because that means I have to spend the rest of the year revising or writing my assignment...but ...3 days until I go home for Christmas so I guess it all balances out really!
I really enjoyed this meal at the weekend - it is a really warming, comforting meal full of my favourite flavour combination - leek, ham and cheese!
If you omitted the ham it would make a great accompaniment for a roast dinner as well!
