I am.... Master Chef.

Tonight, I cooked dinner while Fabio dealt with a large pile of paperwork. I made Middle Eastern style lamb. (recipe below)

"Mum!" said the Princess. "This is so good. You should defintly open a restaurant. On the days when Dr Who is not on. You should open the restaurant tomorrow, Mum."

Handsome Son chipped in. "Poor old Dad will have to get some cement and some bricks. And some tiles. And build it tomorrow. He's gonna be worn out."

"Well," said The Princess. "The restaurant is going to be a big hit."

So here is the recipe:

750 g lean lamb strips
2 tspns olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 onion, sliced
1 x 425g can crushed or chopped tomatoes
2 tspns honey
2 tspns cinnamon

gently fry the onion and garlic together till soft.
fry the lamb in batches till browned all over
add tomatoes, honey and cinnamon, and a little water
simmer for about 15 mns

serve with rice

1 1/2 cups quick brown rice
250g frozen spinach
2 tspns lemon juice
small handful chopped coriander
1 tablespn sesame seeds

cook rice, drain and return to pot
add spinach, juice and coriander, cook for 5 mins

serve with lamb and sprinkle sesame seeds over top

If you make it, and like it -- let me know (:

  4. Yum! My keyboard just shorted from the drool puddle! I'm so going to cook this. Its the perfect recipe to keep the bf happy... though I will have to add extra vegies. Yep you heard right, the bf likes 'extra vegies' in every thing. Makes me sick! Stupid healthy man with his fit body and tall muscular frame, great hair, sexy eyes..... Oh, sorry drooling again :)

  5. Don't forget to let me know if you like it.
    If you hate it, I'll try to remember where I got the original recipe from, and blame them.

  6. Would it work with chicken? I don't like lamb. Guess the only way to really find out is to make it. With chicken.

  7. Can u please post more often so I have something to read??? I told you I check everyday! xoxox

  8. oh, no pressure though......

    my life isn't interesting enough to post every day!
