Sunday, 27th FebruaryCourgette Quiche, Olive and Lemon Meatballs with Tomato Sauce with tagliatelli - Ultimate Slow Cooker p68, Nut Cake. A three course meal for one is a bit extravagant, but I only actually cooked one of the courses.
Sunday shopping day in Lindenthal turned up a new Italian deli where I got some delicious cheese and salami, this very nice slice of quiche and some grilled mushrooms.
Before going out I put the meatballs in tomato sauce in the slow cooker. This is not something that I would have thought needed slow cooking and, to be honest, I didn't find there was any benefit in the taste. I had to boil the sauce to reduce it anyway. A nice recipe, but next time I won't bother with the slow cooker. I like meatballs but mine always taste a bit bland. Not sure what I am doing wrong.
For dessert, a slice of excellent Torta di Fregoloti nut cake baked by my lovely girlfriend Monika, with a glass of Sauternes. Delicious.
