Kw recently came back from a business trip to St Petersburg and he brought back a small (and ridiculously expensive) can of sturgeon caviar. My MIL loves angel hair pasta so I made a creamy angel hair pasta with caviar and shrimp. Got to admit, I don't really care much for burn-a-hole-in-your-wallet caviar.
An apricot almond Caesar salad balanced out the meal. I found fresh apricots from Turkey in the supermarket and this is the first time I have having apricots that didn't come out of a bag.
On Saturday night, we attended a friend's birthday party and we lapped up some seriously good homemade lamb biryani and fried chicken. Might not look pretty or Instagram-worthy but I felt super lucky to be able to partake in such a meal.
The birthday carrot cake was super moist, and stuffed with shredded carrots and walnuts. A worthy contender for best carrot cake in town. Ain't the cake pretty too?
I don't normally rave about brownies but these were amazeballs. I had two, then I stopped counting.
Come Sunday, we had friends over for lunch. It's been ghastly hot these days so we kept things simple. Lemon panko thyme salmon - ah so good! I am really glad I love something that is good for me.
Soba salad, inspired by Wheat Bamkuchen. A keeper. Definitely a great dish for the hot summer days.
Hope your weekend was just as good too!
