Clare and Mike have oldbloke to thank for dinner today:

Fresh chilli and garlic, chopped and fried in olive oil
Tin of tomatoes added and simmered right down
Add chopped salmon steak and single cream and heat til salmon just cooked
Add generous handful torn basil leaves
Serve with nice fresh tagiatelle in this case.

With melon and assorted cooked meats to start, and coffee and stem ginger and choc biscuits to follow. And a nice red wine. Yum. I really love food which is so easy to prepare (even when one of the guests is 40 mins later than expected) and tastes so nice. And they were impressed. Clare was impressed even though she watched me do it!

And now I'm knitting and reading LJ and irc and listening to Bad Religion (mustn't forget that) while Mike rips CDs for his iPod Photo and continues with the epic LJ write-up. Pleasant way to spend the evening.
