There are always lovely treats inside. Manchester based Louise had a bit of a 'duff hand' this month as we're on a fat burning crusade so our diets are pretty limited which gave her a handicap, but she's surprised me with a few delicious treats.
I know a good person eats their dinner first, and then their dessert, but I couldn't wait.
Chorley cakes, where have you been all my life? Their outside is a short pastry which encases a raisin filling. Om nom - well worth breaking the diet, they were calling my name from the cupboard, I'm not really even kidding!
She also included another regional delicacy, creamy Lancashire cheese, and feeling guilty I gave this to a pregnant workmate of mine to enjoy who was having a cheese craving, and she said it's delicious.
The Harissa I have scheduled in the next few days for a version of Katsu Chicken and the Vermicelli is just awaiting my next stir fry, or maybe I might make an asian style soup. The only problem is deciding just which!
