It was a bit tricky to post anything last night with a massive electrical storm. I don't think I have seen lightning go on here for so long. Was a spectacular sight & a fitting end to our little dinner party. We told our guest that the show was for her party - a little early birthday party before she leaves for the UK again today.
Anyway, it was Good Friday yesterday & although it was that, we did have a little Easter & Birthday dinner. It was nice. We don't usually bother too much with that whole fish thing but they all did end up eating salmon as our guests provided that & Stu cooked it. Main course was this...
They enjoyed their fish it seemed. I don't eat fish. Don't like it really unless it has absolutely no flavour & doesn't taste fishy at all! lol So why bother you ask? I don't really! Instead I had some beautiful German bratwurst sausages. Oh heaven. I could eat those everyday. BJ had plain old sausages as he likes everything very plain. At least his tastes are moving along a bit & he is eating a few more different things these days. Like his couscous, but it mustn't have anything in it. He did eat brown rice the other night. Hahahaha... I called it couscous though & he polished it off no worries. Last night however, I dressed up his Easter plate a little - made fancy Easter couscous. He loved it & the rabbit disappeared down a hole so fast! (rabbit missed out on a carrot as we didn't have any!) Gotta love food successes like that! I am sure we will have to reinvent a whole range of things now. I have some really cool boys stuff cookie cutters so couscous diggers & trains it may well be.
Now after all that flapping about with main course we got to the good stuff. Dessert!
When I was compiling my shopping & menu lists the other day we had a slight hiccup with the oven. So I planned dessert with no oven in mind. Good thing too cos this was pretty good.
Triple Chocolate Mousse Tart
It does sound as good as the name suggests. I really felt like eating mousse. It was good. I did the one last night with dark chocolate like the recipe suggested. I am currently making another one with milk chocolate & that one is for tomorrow. Of course there is still half a dark chocolate one in the fridge but we will see how long it lasts! The only thing was that the base was too thick & rock hard. I left out a couple of biscuits from today's version & left out some of the butter as there was too much in the first place. It really is an easy recipe though & was a crowd pleaser. Looks much posher than it was to make. Those sorts of desserts are always good. So make a note of this one! You will be the star of your dinner party!
Also this past week we had a meal of
I don't like my mum's old version of curry sausages (sorry mum but I know you aren't surprised!) & was hesitant about this but I shouldn't hesitate when Stu is cooking! It was good. Definitely something we will have again.
OK, I'd better go do some cleaning up. Happy Saturday & have a great Easter won't you!
