The wind is picking up and blowing at a fair old pace at the moment and it is definitely feeling colder if you are outside getting blown around.
DB and I have begun baking the Indian dishes for next Tuesday. We decided to treat the ladies from our closed school to a home made Indian meal. We like to prepare, cook and freeze as much as possible ahead of time, otherwise we will be too busy in the kitchen to chat to them properly.
The starters will be samosa's (yet to be made). They will be followed by Tandoori chicken legs served with a butter cream sauce. The legs have marinated and are currently in the freezer, sauce can't be made until the afternoon of the day itself otherwise it splits.
A home made spicy Indian chutney plus banana's tossed in coconut and chopped indian, onion and cucumber salad, poppadom's and home made naan bread will also be available.
The main course will be chicken with mint and black eye beans with mushrooms, served with plain boiled rice.
We shall have a non Indian pudding of tart au citroen, vanilla ice cream with a dash of home made chocolate vodka for those who want it.
All in all, I reckon for each person it will be around the £9 including drinks, tea and coffee so not bad at all.
If I get the time to photograph anything, I will do so and post it here after the event.
Today I also found time to make 12 linseed and poppy seed rolls plus a loaf of bread.
