Slightly more productive
Ok, today turned out slightly more productive than I thought, I managed to sew up one more finished piece of embroidery, this one is a birthday bag for one of Girl Lacer’s friends (who happens to have red hair). The pattern is Floral Fantasy from Sublime Stitching and was very fun to stitch up.
I also, hold your horses, cooked, cooked properly (I haven’t really since the whole tooth thing, you may have noticed the lack of cooking posts round here), chorizo pasta, which was loosely based on a recipe on the side of a jar of paprika and mainly inspired by what we had in the fridge and cupboard.
Fry, in a splash of olive oil approximately 150g chopped chorizo with half a chopped onion for 5 minutes, then add 1 clove of grated garlic, a generous glug of red wine, an even more generous glug of passata and about 2 tbsp of chopped parsley and let simmer for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, obviously, cook your pasta. (Serves 2 adults and 2 surprisingly unfussy children).
