I didn't feel up for much cooking so I made another attempt at Alfredo sauce. I've been trying to make it with just the butter and freshly grated cheese (I used Pecorino Romano). I was really careful with the temperature of the butter, but the cheese just didn't "dissolve" very much. There were lots of little strings of the cheese, the way it was grated. There were two lumps. Maybe the butter wasn't hot enough this time. Oh well, the attempts sure taste good.

This looks lovely! Warm and comforting yet completely delicious!

Perhaps, since the soup didn't happen again! When we were done running around it was late, so we thought about stopping somewhere on the way home. We couldn't agree on where to stop though, so we came home and cleaned out all the rest of the little bits and bites of leftovers. I'm guessing the soup WILL happen tomorrow since I'm officially out of leftovers!

thanks sb,much appreciated,we eat with our eye's first i guess!!that's "tagine magic"for you sb!!,it bubbles away under it's hat for hour's,veg etc don't over cook,the meat just falls off the bone & the depth of flavour is amazing.'cos of the long/slow cooking you can use the cheapest cuts of meat which usually have the most flavour!!

Harry, here it is. Hope you like it. I double the recipe and generally add more garlic than called for!
