We're a couple of recipes behind on our 52 new recipe challenge- so today we chose a 'light' lunch to use the mackerel waiting in the fridge. I'm not a huge fish eater- and tend to stick to the safe white fish that looks like the inside of a fish finger! I'm trying to increase my exposure- so we've had fish pie this week and today Smoked mackerel and potato salad. Part of the reason that I'm reluctant to eat fish is because of the possibility of tiny bones- so unfortunately although dh prepared all of this for me, I won't try it again!!!!! The dog was extremely keen on the left over mackerel- I think fish is her all time favourite treat!
Also- a VERY tenuous link to 'light'- we went to see my niece in a show called Dazzle last night!
She'd love to be on the stage one day and had one of the bigger roles this time round. They are a lovely bunch of youngsters. My cousins three girls all went to SOS- which is how Kimberley got a place. Sophie (the youngest) still goes.
It was a bit like a musical Star Trek. As you went in you were issued with a space pack to help with the launch later in the performance. The actors were all showing people to their seats- in character.
We went with my sister and mum- and my aunt and my cousin and her family were there- so a nice chance to catch up with everyone.
I'm still suffering with a cold- so I'd gone prepared with cough sweets and a bottle of lemonade. Unfortunately on the way there it leaked- and my new handbag was swimming in about an inch of liquid which leaked all over my trousers. I had to empty everything and try to mop it up!
