I always feel my posts lack colour, mainly because I'm hopeless at taking photos or rushing so I don't have time to find appropriate captions to add to them.
This was commented on when I mentioned making a lovely meatball dish on Friday - there was no evidence. (Although judging by 4 empty plates I think it was a hit.)
Well there's no real evidence of the lovely meal hubby cooked tonight but here is the recipe pic:
Parmesan crusted pork chops. We had green beans and carrots plus pak choi with ours and they were delicious. We also had a glass of the red stuff to wash it down.
Tomorrow I'm aiming for this:
Chicken shawarma salad.
This was interesting when doing the shopping - it requires sumac and ras el hanout for the marinade plus tahini for the salad dressing. I'd never heard of sumac or ras el hanout before. I also assumed that tahini would be with the dressings in the supermarket.
Ras el hanout is a North African spice mix and sumac is another spice used in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cooking.
I did a lot of wandering around the supermarket looking for these. (Never any staff to ask when you need them.) Thank goodness for Google. Not only did it help identify what I was looking for, when I added in Tesco (the supermarket) it also brought up pictures of the actual items. Made the searching a lot easier!
The chicken is now marinading overnight as recommended. Hopefully I might remember to take a pic of the finished dish tomorrow but don't hold your breath.
