Meatball Pasta

今日夫が作ってくれた夕食は、ミートボールパスタ。夫のお料理バイブル Delia Smith のレシピ。もう少しミートボールを小さくしてほしかったけれど、これでも大分小さくしてくれたようです。元のレシピはこの倍くらいの大きさ。木曜日に買ったモッツァレラチーズが諸事情により使えなかったので、今日前菜に出してもらいました。

The dinner my husband made today was Pasta with Meatballs – he uses his cookery bible, Delia Smith’s large cookery book for the recipe.  I would have liked the meatballs smaller but these are much smaller than the original recipe.

I bought Mozzarella on Thursday but didn’t use it for a reason, so I asked him to serve it with tomato and basil for a starter.







On Saturdays, we usually have cheese after dinner.  We had a few cheeses from last week and the week before but bought a new one today – Blue Shropshire.  We love this one when it is good, but like Stilton the ones we buy here have often passed their peak and so it was with this one.

We forgot that we had bought a nice bottle of port for Christmas.  With dry January, we’d forgotten it completely until now so we opened it today.  We are trying to reduce alcohol intake so we don’t often have port these days but it’s nice to have it now and again.

クリスマス用にと買ったちょっと特別なポートワイン、dry January (禁酒の1月)ですっかり忘れていて、今日封を切りました。イギリス人は、よくチーズ(特にブルーチーズ)をポートワインと一緒にいただきます。この数年意識してお酒の量を減らしているのであまりポートワインを飲まなくなりましたが、久しぶりにいただきました。
