Mmmmmmmm food

Well the weather has turned really cold and we have been doing a lot of staying in and cooking. Tonight we are having Sprats, (I mistakenly called them sardines at the fish shop today and the fish monger corrected me saying sardines are MUCH bigger...) the cheapest, most delicious and freshest fish one can find in this neck o' the woods with crispy chunks of potato and steamed asparagus. Just look at these little beauties.

On Tuesday night we had oxtail which Ricardo had made on the weekend and had cooked for about 5 hours, it was absolutely delicious. Beforehand he'd dressed a crab (cute hat & scarf) to have as an entrée....I don't really like crab that much, it looked good though and took ages to do, no wonder dressed crab is so expensive. I made Tart Tatin for dessert on Saturday night, which actually worked a treat. Made for a great breakfast on Sunday morning too with some unpasteurised cream we'd bought at a farmers market nearby at South Lopham.
