Having an extensive family has it’s advantages. I can’t really think of many right this moment but I know there are some. No, seriously, the best thing about a big family is you know you’re going to get some useful kitchen implements, toys or utensils for Christmas or birthdays.
This Yuletide period I got, amongst many things, a tagine.
Maybe I don’t know. You see sometimes recipes from the web or a book are a bit of a pain in the rear. All that ‘2 tbsps of this’ and ‘1/2 ounce of that’ leads me to wondering whether the writer really measured all these things out.
I mean have you ever followed a recipe faithfully, tasted the end result, and been left wondering ‘Did they ever actually eat this pile of crap’?
So, with a big pile of left-over roast rib from Boxing Day (don’t worry I didn’t make this creation yesterday or anything) I decided to ‘do a curry’. The result certainly looks enticing, at least I think so….
So its been nearly 4 weeks without a kitchen. Living off take-aways, ready meals and all sorts of rubbish. But before we lost our hob (feels like forever) I trawled the cupboards for spices and herbs to create a curry.
