Recipe Review

Photo thanks to nigella.com

I tried a new 'Nigella Express' recipe tonight. Mellow Meatballs were all the name promised. A tasty, delicious meal in a relatively express timeframe. Miss Mischief was happy that chickpeas were part of the ingredients list. I was happy that I still had some homemade stock on my fridge...as well as all the other store cupboard ingredients for this recipe, thanks to our delight in Nigella's prawn and mango curry recipe. To add to my enthusiasm for making this meal tonight, the meat was already defrosted and in the fridge. So coming home after 5pm and having to start on dinner straight away was really not much of a problem! No waiting for meat to defrost in the microwave.

You know what? I didn't even fiddle with the recipe. Just did exactly what it said to do! This meal will end up on our menu plan over winter....absolutely. The bonus is that Dh & I have lunch for tomorrow and Dh had seconds tonight. That recipe went a really, really long way.

On your recommendation and thanks to bookdepository.co.uk's very reasonable prices and no postage, I am now the proud owner of Nigella Express! I have even got author Candace Calvert excited about Nigella ;-)

Hugs, dear friend - I feel like we haven't talked in ages :(

I am certain you won't be disappointed Rel!

I know ~ thought that on Sunday when we had two seconds in the car park! We'll talk on Saturday evening, I'm sure!

The recipe sounds wonderful--and don't you love it when you find a new recipe the whole family's gaga over? That happens once in a blue moon over here, but when it does, I hold onto that recipe for dear life!
