I Cannot believe it is butter!

I’d struggle to find better people to have Sunday lunch out with than my wife’s mum, dad, brother & partner, and of course my wife and son.

If you are ever bang in the middle of the UK, Nuthurst Grange in Warwickshire provided the best Sunday lunch out I have ever had (a 9.5). What sealed it were the perfect flavours that went into the small details, namely the canapés, mint sauce (home made by a part time waiter), bread that was baked on premises and it’s accompanying spread below.

After deliberation around the table, we ascertained that it could be done by whisking butter that is at room temperature and seasoning, then maybe creating with the help of an icing bag, finishing with delicate peppercorns. It tasted fantastic!

At the end of the day it’s butter, but taking care on the small details completed the experience to make a truly unforgettable meal.

Easy Chicken Satay Curry


I am not sure the origins of this recipe, which is a printed sheet in our folder, but in the capable hands of my wife who does it spectacularly it consistently scores between a 9 & 10 in my book.(I’ll define the rating system another day). The beauty is that there are hardly any ingredients. (See Below)

ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS

2 Chicken breasts, chopped into chunks

2 Teaspoons of Thai red Curry Paste

2 Tablespoons of crunchy Peanut Butter

1 Can of Coconut Milk

Juice of 2 Limes

Salt and Pepper

METHOD

Fry the chicken in a little (Olive) oil until it is coloured, about 2-3 mins. Then add the curry paste, peanut butter and coconut milk, simmering for about 15 minutes. Squeeze in the lime juice, stir in and season with the salt and pepper. It goes well with rice or rice noodles. (Rice noodles preferred in our house as they take less than 5 Minutes)

THIS IS QUICK TO MAKE AND TASTES AMAZING.

Looking ahead for the blog :)

imageObviously, being a Friday night, I’ve endeavoured to and succeeded in having an amazing meal. ( End of the week, it is a criminal offence to not set out to do this :)) It is our chicken satay, simple and possibly my favourite home recipe. More to follow in time including this mouthwatering treat written down at some point. I have to say I’m buzzing with ideas about this blog. I like that I can write about something I am really passionate about. This has potential to be an exciting journey and I look forward to where it takes me. For any readers, stick around. There will be some v. Tasty recipes and some fun musings on my favourite topic – Yummy Food.
