I was the chief cook and bottle washer this weekend; lamb was on the menu for Saturday night along with roasted parsnips and mushy peas with onions.
But Sunday night I went all out and tried a new recipe from an old issue of Gourmet. Chipotle Meatballs with Mango Pomegranate Guacamole with sticky rice. This was so good! And both times I used my Deruta platter for serving reminding us of our wonderful trip to Italy.
De-clutter and save money; that is my New Year mantra but I could not resist this huge tin. The lid is a little tricky to get off so I suggested to my favourite Sparkie that this would make an excellent lamp base. I'm sure that once he's had time to think about it, he will see that I am right.
Cherry crisp.Yes,I used canned cherries but with lots of oats and pecans, it was quite tasty.
You can never have enough candles. I favour beeswax candles to any other and when I run out of candle-holders, I use what ever is around the house.
