I must just start by stating that I hate rugby, and I can not pretend otherwise. Stupid sport, don’t get it at all. I grew up in Newcastle/Gateshead and rugby just didn’t happen……. So why my Friday night has to be spoilt with this I do not know.
So I escaped earlier to the kitchen, and to the kitchen I will return. Firstly a drink:
My favourite home made cocktail- cointreau, cranberry juice and prosecco. Needed very much after a very odd week.
Then I set about making a Libyan Salmon Tagine…
Firstly I sautéed some new potatoes with onions, celery, cumin seeds, turmeric, paprika, chilli and a little garlic. When the potatoes were crispy and the veg softened I added some tinned cherry tomatoes, fresh lime leaves and simmered until thick. In the meantime I roasted some salmon in the oven to serve on top of the tagine.
Very lovely if I say so myself!
Now how do I escape from the rugby…….
Know where you’re coming from! You in the kitchen. Me on my Kindle. You seem to have far more to show for your efforts! Really looking forward to seeing you next weekend. Bxx
