Recipe for perfect prawn thingie

Get home from work. Do dance of joy in kitchen as didn't get stuck in traffic.

Chop onion, garlic, chilli. Get down orange pot. Have brief warm fuzzies at thought of friend who bought said pot.

Remember on diet. Spray pot with oil spray. Agree with Glamorous NZ PA that it smells like hidey beast margarine. Look at bottle to show that it is meant to be olive oil. See it claims to be butter flavoured spray oil. Feel slightly pale.

Saute onions, garlic, and chilli. Try to grate carrots for carrot salad in mixer. Accidentally thinly slice carrot. Add thinly sliced carrot to saute and readjust grating attachment. Grate carrot, mix with sesame oil, lime juice, fresh coriander and garlic. Leave on side and try every five minutes through cooking process.

Add about a teaspoon of ground cinnamon to onions etc, continue to saute. Add tin tomatoes, large squirt tomato puree and a splash of orange juice. Set to simmer.

Pop upstairs for a wee (which being a crip takes a min. of 15 mins). Look for MOT certificate. Find MOT certificate. Do dance of joy that MOT certificate valid for whole week! Remember dinner.

Defrost prawns. Mix prawns and enormous bag of spinach with tomato sauce. Decide to make lime and mint cous cous. Get out cous cous and put in pot with dried mint and exciting bouillon. Feel embarassed about how much you like bouillon. Pour on boiling water.

Tidy kitchen for five minutes. Check cous cous. Realise its nice enough to take food outside so take it all outside. Eat and enjoy praise of Glamorous NZ PA and The Doctor on food.

Go inside and decide to blog about evening so far.

Realise forgot to put lime juice on cous cous...
