So Friday night this week was a chicken and chorizo pizza with chips and home made remoulade, followed by mince pies with blue cheese and a viewing of Up!
Starting with the food, who wouldn't want to have chicken and chorizo pizza, with peppers mushrooms and jalapenos?! We also received a celeriac in our veg box last week. It went pretty well in soup, but whenever we go to France I have to have remoulade, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try a homemade version. Made with mayo, Dijon mustard, lemon and capers, it was pretty good but a little heavy on the moutarde! However, Joe usually doesn't like remoulade and I have won him over so it was a win!
Joe was also on mince pie duty, having been disappointed in his effort last week. This time he used the homage 2 fromage night so inspire some blue cheese mince pies, which were really good - that salty cheese brings out the flavour of the mince meat really well!
Post dinner entertainment was a viewing of Up, which I had never seen before. It was highly recommended by Wolf and Gelt last week, and I must admit I absolutely loved it (even if it made me a little teary - don't tell anyone!). If you have not seen this film, I can only suggest you find a copy and settle down to watch it, it's brilliant.
