You ask how my weekend was, well I can tell you about one thing. My Saturday evening was filled with a memorable culinary experience. It was unapologetically delicious food, prepared and cooked with love. My brother cooked a storm, he calls himself CHEF CHAOS you see! Why Chaos, I leave that unto you to explore the mind. One thing fore sure is that the bags and bags of flavour and integrity of ingredients are not chaotic at all.
We had a rich and moist chicken casserole with rosemary, garlic and lots of sweet and tangy tomato goodness. He cooked his chicken very early in the morning for the flavour to transfer into the chicken – YUM!

In any case, I am still begging for the recipe so I can share it with you 
Then this lovely chicken was served with peas tossed in a peppery butter and a creamy mash – moreish, I say.

His wife was in heaven, I felt spoilt and the kids were licking fingers – to me that’s what I call a great dinner party. Less fuss, good food and tucking in with great company. This is my first feature of Daddy’s who cook – I am glad this started with my one and only Brother left.

I hope I get hold of that chicken recipe to share with you pronto 
