Dinner on the Deck

In Recipes on June 16, 2009 at 10:42 am


Last Wednesday, Cameron and I realized that we’d been together for 5 years! We’ve lived together for 4 years and 2 months of that and have so far managed 9 months of marriage (Cameron has just told me it feels like 9 years – charming!) Thinking this quite an achievement (and a good excuse) we decided we’d cook something special for dinner at the weekend.

I love Tapas and vote for it for any special occasion dinner. However, Cameron wanted lobster especially since they are ridiculously cheap at the moment only $4.99 per lb (approx £3 per lobster). We decided to combine the two and settled on a dinner of lobster with melted coriander (or cilantro in Canada) butter, chorizo fried in red wine, tumeric infused rice and peas and fresh crusty bread from the farmer’s market.



All washed down with a bottle of wine or two…. Yummy!

Sorry about the lapse in my rantings but as many of you will know I have spent the last couple of weeks back in my homeland.

I must say it was good to go back but it’s definitely been nice to return to the much more relaxed Canadian lifestyle. Remember you are all welcome to come and try it anytime you fancy.

Anyway, it was a pretty jam packed couple of weeks. I arrived late afternoon on the 25th and wasn’t much good for anything other than a full 12 hours of sleep. The following day I headed Elgin/Inverness way to catch up with a uni friend.

Back home on the 28th to celebrate my little sisters 21st. We were taken by limo (free champagne) to a restaurant where we had a lovely meal and birthday cake.
