……’twas Dr Who season premiere on Saturday night, so naturally I decamped to my sister’s house for an extensive buffet and the benefit of her flat-screen TV. We feasted on red pepper and feta frittata (more on that later), beetroot and walnut hummus, cottage cheese, flat breads, crispy kale with cashew nuts and many other such delicacies. Dr Who wasn’t half-bad either (exploding dinosaurs! evil robots! lizard/human snogs!). Capaldi still has to settle into the role a little, but we can be patient. Despite his dismissal of long scarf-wearing as stupid, I can see him as a Doctor in the mould of Tom Baker *cackles evilly*. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
Damndelicious came up trumps again as well, on these moreish snacks….
- Breadcrumbs, and equal amounts parmesan mixed together
- 2 small courgettes, sliced thinly widthways
- Self-raising flour
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- Vegetable or olive oil
- Salt and black pepper
Heat oil in a frying pan or wok, enough to lightly fry the courgettes.
Add salt to the breadcrumb/parmesan mix, and black pepper to the egg.
Dip the courgettes slices in the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumb/parmesan mix.
Fry on both sides until lightly browned, then drain on kitchen towel to remove excess oil.
