Fried rice with pancetta, leeks and sweetcorn

I cooked my own dinner this evening (!) and without recourse to a recipe*. In a nod to Rob at Welsh Onion I thought I'd blog about it.

So, back late and not much food in the house; what to do? Maybe slice up an organic leek with an even ten slices of finest Italian pancetta, brown it all in a pan, add a tin of sweetcorn and fry a little further. Then perhaps mix in a portion of rice and liven things up with a dash of chilli oil before serving with parmesan shavings and a garnish of freshly picked flat leaf parsley. Ooh yeh.

* In the interests of full disclosure I guess I should add that I find this recipe most successful when I'm blindly taking orders from Kristin.

Coming up later this week, the best of the photos from our weekend at Iz's birthday retreat in wildest Essex.
