After two weeks of feasting on rich hearty fare, I need a break. Not from cooking but from the tyranny of stuffing, spuds and sprouts. I need to shake off the shackles of red meat and gravy. Not for me the three course meal followed with a completely unnecessary* cheeseboard.
What I crave right now are the light, summery dishes, that will hopefully help me get back into my November clothes. Before you ask, no, I'm not on a diet. This isn't a health kick. Think of it more as a thinning of my gravy-stream.
Spaghetti with crab and cherry tomatoes should do just that. Crab has a big flavour so a little goes a long way. Serve with a nice big hunk of bread and a glass of what ever you fancy**
*no cheeseboard is completely unnecessary but after a marathon meal there is no need. Skip the pudding and go for the cheese I say.
**see told you it wasn't a diet.
