I have catching up to do. My friend Mary Margaret visited me, coming all the way from Alaska and 14 degrees to sunny Florida and 75 degrees. We had some fun, I took time off work and I made a few of Nigella's treats. I will post on that later.
This morning I was so excited to open Laquet's blog and see I could post a comment! I thought, problem fixed, as I actually posted. But her next blog entry had me blocked from commenting. Rats! Same with Donna at My Tasty Treasures.
Before I start in on that rant, or my friend's visit, here is another one to check off my Nigella Express list.
Nigella's Cornish Hens and Sweet Potato Chunks
Don't they look like pathetic little birds laying about, all white and tiny and looking like they have no promise at all. Well, they may have had promise....but that ship sailed before the birds made it to the table.
The cinnamon and cumin are essential for the potatoes.
The potatoes were saturated in spices and olive oil.
If you have the book please look at the photo of the finished product. It looks world's better than mine. Now, I followed the directions but it did not look as appealing. Whether her recipe tasted better, I do not know.
Doug and I thought the hens came out a bit bland...like they needed salt or something. They needed taste. The sweet potatoes were fabulous and the combo of cumin and cinnamon works well. Maybe I ought to have rubbed that all over the little hens.
Alas, they gave their lives for a bland dinner, not to be remembered after this post.
