Dish of the Month Round Up - May 2013

Dish of the Month, Cooking the recipes of Nigel Slater had fewer entries in May,  however the quality of the cooking was not diminished. There are some real treats to enjoy so many thanks to you all.

Sue at Heaven on a Plate hosted the challenge this month and presented this delicious looking dish of Spiced Lentils with Mint Labne from the Kitchen Diaries II. 

Braised neck of lamb with apricots and cinnamon is the warming dish shared with us by Rachel at Marmaduke Scarlet. It's well worth reading this post from Rachel where she compares Nigel to an enormous fluffly alpine dog with a barrel of brandy round his neck!

Jane from Onions and Paper found an unseasonal recipe from Nigel Slater, on the Guardian website, to match the unseasonal weather!  This Pork Belly and Beans looks like a great comfort feast.

 My own entry is a simple one, Rhubarb with Butterscotch Sauce from The Kitchen Diaries II.  I can recommend it!

I love the look of this Lamb Flatbread dish brought to us by The New Mrs P who seized on the first recipe in the May chapter of the Kitchen Diaries II and I'm so glad she did!

Claire at Foodie Quine, caused a bit of a stir on Twitter and 'himself' seems rather pleased with her delightful Chicken Skin Popcorn

Let's finish with a nice cup of tea and slice of the entry from Choclette of Chocolate Log Blog,  Chocolate Muscovado Banana Bread,  check out the post to find out why "it was a victim of it's own success and had it coming".

Thanks to to Sue at Heaven on a Plate for hosting the May Dish of the Month, I'll be posting the June event at the weekend, I have my dish planned already.

A great round up! You know I'd have been in there had it not been for my sojourn in the local sanitarium. I love this challenge xx

Lovely dishes and I really must make that butterscotch sauce, it looks divine.

Yum...these all look fab, I wouldn't know where to start on this little lot! :-)

Aww, thank you for the lovely comment (but could you post the link too? Or is it me, 'cos I can't see it!)

Planning on the next entry as I type!

Lovely collection of dishes! I may have to skip this month as I'll be away most of the month, so I'll see you in July!

Thanks Janice. Those lentils and labna have got my name written all over them. Mind you the butterscotch sauce sounds rather appealing too - could have that for pudding I guess.
