Okay, enough about me. Now to JH's mad cooking skills. Brilliant! In just over 30 minutes we were able to plate up two huge plates of deliciousness. On the menu, angel hair pasta with a fabulous tomato garlic olive ragu, steamed mussels and clams. And the best brussels sprouts I've eaten (sauteed in garlic and pancetta). This was the most spectacular thing I have eaten in a looong time... until dessert anyway. :)
For dessert, I made an almond cream tart with peaches and rasperries. I made the almond cream from scratch, just like last time. Wooooweee that was good.
The meal was washed down with a glass of white wine, and opened by my new thrift store purchase (See top right of picture #1)! That's right, and automatic wine opener. $3.99. I think I'm in love!
