Diamond Jubilee Dining Week Continues: UN-fish and chips and leftover pie

un-fish and chips- Southbank London


John with his veggie fish and chips in London. We were there on his birthday last year.


For our homemade un-fish and chips, I choose to coat the slow melt cheese with egg, crushed Ritz crackers and a little flour. Yeah, I know it’s not deep-fried, but with melted butter in the pan that helped make up the difference.

I tried to make mushy peas again, but learned a hard lesson– don’t take a walk around the block and leave mushy peas simmering away with too little water in the pan. We had to quickly substitute non-mushy peas (they were fresh English peas though).

I also oven baked my chips– I know how “un” can you get, but it was a week night, what can I say.

The next night we had leftover Will and Kate Beer and Barley Mushroom pie with boiled potatoes and corn. It freezes and reheats so well.

Another Great Britain Jamie Oliver (Stephy tweaked veggie) recipe. Check out the original blog post for the how-tos!


One more meal to go and the celebrations eating ends– parting is such sweet sorrow.

Even Paul thinks so.
