well,having retrieved my car from my son's house,i'm driving home & pondering my options for this evening's meal.vaguely thinking something "chickeny" i headed up the motorway to horwich.only 6 miles from chez harry & home of the huuuuuUUUUUUGE tesco.bigger,better & with a superior range than my local store.still thinking chicken i walks in.lordy lordy,there is katie price(jordan),launching her new fragrance.
not only is said lady not my particular cup of tea,but she also caused me to rethink my dinner plans.chicken?"you've had enough of birds with plump breasts & moist thighs for one day 'arry m'lad",thunk i
knew i had cream,parmesan,garlic & parsley left from my seafood pasta the other day.smoked bacon in the freezer & some bronze die fusilli lunghi pasta in the cupboard.olive oil of course......need some mushrooms,that's all,mushrooms.found some nice,wild girolles & fresh shitake's on offer.£2/$3 a pack or 2 for £2/$3
....no brainer really..got both.so a dish was borne:fusilli lunghi with smoked bacon,girolles & shitake mushrooms in a garlic,cream & parmesan sauce.tesco have recipe card for a carbonara version but i couldn't be arsed with egg yokes etc & theirs only uses one type of mushroom..all washed down with cotes catalanes fruitier than carmen miranda's hat!i picked the little cakes up in marks & spencer's.baked on the premises...normandy apple tart,peach & creme anglais tart & pear & almond tart....only 99p/65 cents each...why bake your own?why?well for one thing,harry can't bake
!!had the normandy tart after my pasta dish..."gangster"
