To be honest most of my nights are both quiet and in. Yesterday was a bit special though.
I happened upon this idea in Appetite by Nigel Slater.
It seemed just the thing for a Friday night alone. Scallops are way too expensive to buy for a family of five but for one they are a definite possibility.
Followed by this.
It's another Nigel Slater idea from his TV series -Simple Suppers. Hot green beans tossed with ham and cheese, in this case heavenly Gorgonzola dolce.
I ate all this lovely food whilst watching An Affair to Remember with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. I'd never seen it before -wonderful, wonderful.
After that I watched Daniel Craig. It was Alice's fault, but I'm very grateful to her because Daniel Craig and his speedos were very, very nice.
Today I have crochet to block and crème brulée to make. Steak with blue cheese tonight, yum.
Thank you for your kind comments about my recipe journal. Also thanks for the book recommendations.
