A mou of disappointment. "What, no meat?"
I went into a bit of a rant, I'm afraid. Sigh.
In fact I thought the tagine was very nice - I added some green beans and some tomato passata to the sauce, and I think that wasnecessary. Otherwise I think it would have been a tad meh.
Anyway, for Mr FD and those who want more meat (!) here is a very simple, quick pork chop dish. Frugal Queen has another delicious sounding pork dish on her blog too. But here's mine:
