It pays to have low expectations. This bottle of wine, bearing that adage in mind, was rather good. Blackberry 2016 has been a catalogue of disappointment, but this bottle was somehow better. It had a full blackberry flavour and was more full bodied than anticipated. We drank it to the Egg and Pepper Thing - Claire asked me to cook and rather doing a Something New And Possibly Exciting, I returned to an old favourite. It is delicious though, and far more than the sum of its parts.
Of course we spent the evening watching Line of Duty
|This is not the Egg and Pepper Thing|
Recipe for the Egg and Pepper Thing
Slice an onion, a red pepper and another colour pepper thinly and fry them in a large frying pan in olive oil, until soft
During this process put in a clove of crushed garlic and a sliced chilli (remove some or all seeds to taste)
Also during this process, but sometime later, add in chopped tomatoes
Keep frying until it is all soft and looks like a ratatouille
Make four spaces in the pan - as if creating a cross with the vegetable mixture.
Into each of the spaces, crack open an egg and drop it in (trying not to break the yolk)
Keep cooking until done
Cover in coriander
Serve with cous cous or whatever.
