Experimental Cookery 2015 #5: Crostini

Possibly a bit of a stretch this one, but I'm going to count it anyway.

As is my wont, I cooked a three-course meal for Valentine's Day. The main was steak and chips (mmm, chips) and the dessert was meringues with cream and fruit, both of which I've done previously. The starter, however, was new, being crostini. The recipe was taken from "Jamie's Italy", a book I enjoy more in theory than in practice, as I've made virtually no use of it.

The starter was near-trivial. As I said, it's a bit of a stretch. Basically, I had to toast some ciabatta bread (store bought, so I can't even claim credit there!), and then add some garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, mozerella, chilli, and basil. So, essentially, it was little more than cheese on toast.

Still, it was only one part of a three-course meal, so there!

This Week's Mug: This week's mug is black, with a wraparound design showing the London Underground (probably out of date). As a mug, it's actually quite good, but I don't think I've ever actually used it before (though I think my Dad did, once). This mug was purchased for me by LC on one of her trips down there.

I like the sound of that mug. The food doesn't sound bad either!x
