But revenge is sweet and last night a bottom-of-the-fridge hunt yielded mushrooms, cooked chicken and onions. I found some broad beans in the freezer and combined the lot with some home-made chicken stock.
The result was incredibly scrummy.
And I feel a little more virtuous because I've wiped the grin off that packet of orzo
