Fancied some pasta this evening but didn't seem to have many sauce ingredients. Then I remembered: wait, I have a jar of tahini. I have oranges (always) = sorted. This tasty tahini sauce is featured in the River Cottage Veg Every Day book and was used for the courgette & green bean salad but it goes with anything!
Juice some orange, add some tahini, crushed garlic, salt and pepper - BOOM! Delicious.
This past week, two friends lost their mums and others lost their pets. I quietly cry with them. My mum went to be with The Lord 14 years ago. And this boy..... this boy has been with me for 17 years! Holding him especially close and extra chin rubs; enjoying every moment.
I love the flavours & colours of Mexican foods. It's a challenge to find a good restaurant in London though. This was a place in Camden Town; it was tasty but just ok.
The best Tex Mex I ever had was Rosa Mexicano, Union Square New York. El Tiempo in Houston and for authentic Mexican cuisine, Hugo's in Houston. Miss those places!
In Camden Town today, seeing Conor Oberst at Koko! I love this venue. This used to be Camden Palace, run by Steve Strange in the 80's. The likes of Wham!, Bananarama, Boy George, Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran - basically all of 80's pop royalty used to party here. And yes, we are here early to get that front row spot. Some say that's sad but we like to think of it as "dedicated" 😚
