When Ali posted her resolution to eat more delicious food in 2014 I couldn't agree more. As eating is a necessary part of our daily lives I've always believed that we should make a point of enjoying it as much as possible. I love to cook because I love to eat! I absolutely loath the idea of dieting and depriving myself of delicious food... although my scales this morning suggest that perhaps that is what I ought to be doing this month!
But manana... this evening I've cooked one of our favourite dishes... Cuban prawns (I don't eat meat but do enjoy fish or shellfish occasionally)
... otherwise known in our house as Paris Hilton prawns. It is a recipe cut from the newspaper where the instructions state... "simmer the sauce slowly until it takes on a Paris Hilton like quality - rich and thick since you ask". Yes, naughty I know but it still amuses me every time I cook it. And it does taste so very, very good with its chilli, lime and cumin flavoured sauce.
especially when followed with a thick slice of chocolate cake.
Ah yes.... manana
