May 14th - 15th It's All About The Food

A wonderful quiet weekend here. Chores were completed, the grass was mown, laundry done and put away. Yes, a very quiet weekend. And it is nice to have weekends like this to not only catch our breaths, but also it gives us a chance to give recipes a go that require either more time or are new.

Saturday was a Butter Chicken Day (made from scratch). Actually it could easily be done any day of the week, but I like to marinate my chicken in the turmeric, cumin and nutmeg spices for a few hours first, Which doesn't always lend itself to being completed on a working day. Also to be brutally honest, lying in bed on Friday night, and I don't know why exactly then, but the thought came to me that I haven't done home made butter chicken for a long time. So guess what Saturday's main meal was

Sunday was George's turn. When stocking up on some new BBQ supplies at the BBQ shop, he was gifted a BBQ recipe magazine  We both liked the sound of Aubergine Parmigiana. So  this was our main 'meal' for Sunday. We topped these with home made Parsley Pesto, Tomato, Parmesan and Mozzarella Cheeses, and cooked on the BBQ. These are wonderful, and would make a lovely starter dish. But we like to be different, and munched on these for our dinner

A little (well a big one) Mouse couldn't wait to taste one - hence the gap
