Looking back through the week to bring us up to date.

Wednesday I had a recipe in mind from a new book on meatballs but I got in a little later than expected and so opted for a simpler version.

Spicy Meatballs with Roasted Potato Wedges and Salad



I simply seasoned beef mince with salt & pepper and added 1 tbsp ras-al-hanout, then shaped them into small balls and baked them in the oven for 20 mins until cooked through and browned.

In a saute pan I fried a small, chopped onion with a little garlic in olive oil until soft.  I added 2 tins of tomatoes and cooked down for 20 mins.  I then added half a small tin of coconut cream and 2 small, hot red chillis and simmered for another 10 mins.  I added the meatballs just before serving.

The wedges were pretty good and crispy.  I just cut some big potatoes into wedges, tossed in a little olive, salt, cumin and paprika and baked in the oven until the potatoes were cooked through and crispy.

All in all very good.

On Thursday I was working late night so no dinner for me.  Colin had the majestic meal of fish fingers, chips and beans!

Tonight we have been out for a very good meal at A Cena in Richmond.  Look at the Restaurant page for a review!
