hot in the kitchen?
I had a day off work yesterday and felt in the mood to cook. It was a hot day so to make it even hotter I fired up the oven and baked some cakes as a nice welcome home present from my five weeks absent neighbour, Jo. She loved them. I also de-stoned some cherries and made a cherry sauce to go with some vanilla ice-cream.
Me and my lovely neighbour.
Later on I went to the shops and got myself some ginger and garlic, spring onions, carrot and a rump steak. From the garden I picked some raddichio salad leaves to go with the grated carrot to form a simple and colourful salad. A few beers helped the day unfold in a summery way.
I cooked a few noodles to go with the stir fry and salad and my lips were hot from the chillis for the entire evening. The food was delicious.
Here are a few pictures from my lovely day off work
