When it comes to food, us Little's are all on different pages.. Little R and Little B are just interested in eating it, whereas Little B enjoys preparing it more (which is a good thing, considering he's a chef!) and then there's Little Me, who, well, I guess I'm down with the furries. I just enjoy eating it.
We very rarely get to sit down and eat together, which is the main reason for my terrible snacking and crumpet dinners, so when we do get the chance we try to make the most of it. Normally Little B is nominated as cooker (well he does such a good job!) but sometimes when I want a new dress or something, I have to agree to cook...
My most favourite meal to make is a Melanzane, which is a vegetarian dish and tastes bloody wonderful. It's also pretty simple to make, and goes down nicely with a good old cheesecake!
All you need to do is cut the aubergine in half, and lightly oil. Cook this for 15 minutes or so, then scrape out the inside and add to a tin of chopped tomatoes (garlic and herbs if you wish). Then layer a slice of mozzarella, a slice of tomato, followed by a spoonful of mixture. Repeat till aubergine is filled.Finish off with some sprinkled parmasean and place in oven for another 10 minutes. Serve with a tasty side salad.
Little B is a bit partial to a good curry (as is Little R for that matter!) and with our endless supply of Rogan Josh paste, it only seems right to keep using it up! Plus a chocolate fudge brownie always tastes so much better after a curry..!All you need is a mixture of vegetables fried off in some oil (our favourites are courgette, pepper, onion and broccoli) and mixed with some chicken which has already been friend in rogan josh paste and water. Add together, and put in chopped tomatoes and paste (we also add in garlic philly!). Leave to cook, then serve with white rice and/or garlic naan and a huge dollop of mango chutney.
