oh yes i remember this

new years day
...doesn't count. surely no one else does anything more than cooking three packets of tesco value chicken flavour noodles and dribbling them down themselves while they stare mindless at 'the big fat quiz of the year' reruns either. surely...

new years day 2
The problem with our fridge is that it is always full, but, mysteriously, contains nothing to eat. Several jars of condiments and pickled, chutneyed items arrive in the post, in bulk, and stay untouched until these moments, such as post-apocalyptic party cleaning, when you are frankly ravenous, and willing as never before to eat sweetcorn relish and Baobab Tree of life jam.
On this occasion
the fridge is bare apart from beer and some extremely questionable minced beef and I have just been tidying for 2 hours only stopping to realise that the kitchen looks exactly the same. In a bid to be a bit january '10 new leaf etc I decide not to eat half a baguette and instead concoct this salad, vaguely mexican- therefore exciting!, far healthier and uses up some limp bits of fridge growth that used to be lettuces.

1 teaspoon of mexican salsa verde from tub lurking in fridge
3 dessertspoons olive oil
1 dessertspoon white wine vinegar
1 squeeze lime juice (this was nigh on impossible for me, the only lime to hand being about as juicy as a bullet)
chopped parsley (about a pinch full)
1 pinch each salt pepper and white sugar

-whisk this together with fork.
-chop up end bits of tragic lettuces
-slice up very ripe avocado (half of)
-cover with thin strips of smoked salmon
-dress and consume.
