Experment: Test 1

Tonight is Curry in a Hurry night, nobody else could get excited about Linguine with Lemon, Garlic and Thyme Mushrooms.

I have heard a whisper that come October the book of Nigella Express will be available in New Zealand and will retail about NZ$95.00!

While I am hoping for a similar release date here, not too long to wait. What I am not hoping for is a similar price, I'd like a less price!

I have picke dup work on one of Ms Stashs abandoned projects all the talking at the knitting coven has caused a error that will need to be corrected. Arrggh!

Back with the Verdict! It all got eaten so that's probably a really good sign. Delicious but delicate curry, not too spicy for those who don't like it hot.

And I was reflecting on the supermarket visit I made this afternoon. It now yields up such Nigella needed delights as elderflower cordial, blood orange juice, jam setting (& marmalade setting) sugar and to my great excitement of discovering it this afternoon - '00' flour!!!!

However, I could only find pesto on the shelf in a jar, no tubs in the chiller section. And for some reason, there seemed to be a serious lack of frozen soy beans. I wonder why that could be???

Sunday sees the Saffron Roast lamb with Sticky Garlic Potatoes from Feast for Lunch. I'm looking forward to it, well to the potatoes at least. Roast Lamb is blah! I so would have taken that dinner date with Tom Cruise!!!!

It's Here! (Almost)

Today is the official first day for the British Times Online to start it's Nigella Express special. Already up is an interview with Nigella, a podcast of Nigella talking about why Nigella Express and not one, not two, not even three! But 12 recipies!

I am in food heaven, nearly all of the recpies are stuff I'd like to put on my to make list. I'm only uncertain about the smoked trout however....

And all can say is, I can not wait to get my hands on the book, which is available form the 6th this month in the UK, so I will be paying a visit to my local book store and see if they have a release date yet for here.

And on a side note, poking around the web, I found one of my other heroes. Mel Fyfe! Who I am unsure how many of you are familiar with her, she's the Circus Oz strongwoman. Well I found her most recent tv appearence I've seen and had to share it with you all!

Happy eating!

(And on a completly unrelated note, I just disovered my blogaversy date. August 24th! Well on this date just passed my blog was offically three years old! Same as the knitting coven!)
