Cooking Wednesdays

In my house, Ian is the chef. He's very good too.  A while back I made the decision to do more of the cooking. One reason was obviously to give Ian a break. The main reason though is that I eventually want to be a stay at home mum, and I wanted to make sure I'd be able to cook while Ian's out at work. 

Since I started cooking (my night is Wednesdays), I've cheated really and cooked the same meals over and over. This wasn't what I wanted to achieve, and Ian kindly pointed that out last week. 

So, from now on, I'll be expanding my repertoire and cooking something new.  My first try was a recipe I found on Mimi's food blog for roasted prawns and tomatoes.  It was pretty simple to make, and was quite nice (I did go a bit easy on the lemon zest as I'm not really a big fan of lemon zest in my dinner - great in cakes though!).  

Ian seemed to like it, although he said he'd have done the tomatoes as they were in this recipe, but then would have fried the prawns in garlic butter to give them more of a kick.

Garlic butter is *always* a good thing. :)
