Our Friday evening…

… looked like this:

Paradise prawns with a twist. I used a tbsp of dry sherry instead of the wine, and added som pressed garlic and a tbsp chilli sauce. This version was really nice too! It feels right to cook this dish in a copper pan, because that’s what mummy used to do. 🙂

The simplest salad with spinach, little gem, thinly sliced red onions, balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt. Some nice seeds would have worked well, but I can’t eat them. We finished off dinner with some cheese. My current favourite is Ossau-Iraty (to the left), a ewe’s milk cheese from the Basque region in France. In the middle you see truffle honey, which is divine together with cheese. Love it! On the right is a creamy Brie that I like to eat with pears. And Carr’s water biscuits is a must with cheese.

I received some cookbooks today that I’d ordered from Amazon. The Moomin cookbook is really cute with drawings and anecdotes but the recipes were a bit boring. The Hummingbird Bakery book is lovely and I really want to get into cupcakes a bit more. But the best was Plenty. OMG, I want to cook all the fabulous recipes in that book. Amazing!

On our way to the country now… Take care!
