Fish Finger Roll With Crushed Peas

The first time I had a fish finger roll was with our friend Alastair in Brackley. Dave chose this as his lunch when we were in Cookham. And when time was running against me, I made this for our lunch.

Head straight on to the Recipe For ♥ Fish Finger Roll ♥

For my December break I decided I would set a timer for one hour. This timer would be used for all the tasks and chores I do in a day. My first one hour slot starts with computer time. First I check my work emails, and once I have replied to all those that need a response I move on to my blog. First replying to comments and then reading other posts. And only after that, if time allows, do I write a blog post. It is quite strange to work this way, but I did not want to be stuck in front of the screen for hours. Another one hour slot has been set aside for cleaning. As much as cleaning is a necessity, I do not want to spend too much time spring cleaning. Between laundry and dishes, bathrooms and kitchens I already have a lot to do.

Time has been set aside for shopping. If I can do that at Woolworths, I include a walk with the chore. If not, I am ensuring that all my shopping is done at once, in one place if possible. My aim was to create two dishes a day over this time, but to date that has just not happened. I am taking it slowly so that I can enjoy my cooking. I am spending time reading, and that has to be limited otherwise I would spend all day sitting with my nose in a book. The last one hour slot has been dedicated to looking at accommodation for Croatia as we are going there next December for a family holiday. If you have been and have a place you can recommend, please let me know.

    1. I am so far behind in blogging it’s not even funny. And I need to get some recipes done as well. But other than that, I feel more relaxed than last year.

  1. My mother used to make fish fingers when I was growing up so to me it classifies as comfort food. Didn’t know it could be so elegant – I have to give your recipe a try. Sending you the very best wishes for the coming year, dear Tandy.

  2. I definitely set my own timer when it comes to cleaning Tandy ha, ha but difficult with cooking. I am behind with blogging though as well. We would call these Crumbed Fish burgers however have never had them with peas. Sounds delicious.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
