Last night’s dinner


I got a photo of the buns that went with the sliders and then we had a nice surprise of a friend popping over to watch some movies. What to make?

Chocolate Fondue in a rush (in a small fondue pot or on the top of a double boiler) mix together orange zest, chocolate (I like the really dark stuff) and orange brandy. Stir until smooth and dip in fruit and little ammaretti cookies.

By the way, the lamb was just as good as the chicken so here is who I got it from.

Tonight’s dinner
We’re just going to do sausages on the bbq so no big deal there (great sausages though from Dave at Ashton farm) BUT I saw a bizarre show last night called “Bitchin’ Kitchen”. It is sort of like a cooking version of PeeWee’s Playhouse. She did a dinner to break-up with and the dessert was…

Peanut Butter Banana Fritters. I’m not planning on breaking-up with anyone but we’re still having these for dessert!

Ingredients
Fritters
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons confectioner’s sugar
1 pinch sea salt
small pinch of baking soda
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup smooth organic peanut butter
2/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 litre peanut oil (for deep frying)
Chocolate Sauce
1 cup dark chocolate
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 cup water (for double boiler)

Directions
Fritters
1.Combine dry ingredients is a bowl and mix.
2.Add bananas, peanut butter, milk, egg and whisk until consistency is such that it can be balled up in a spoon.
3.In a medium sauce pan, heat peanut oil to 375 degrees F.
4.Using a teaspoon, delicately spoon the peanut-butter-banana batter into the oil, a few balls at a time and deep fry for 5 minutes until they fluff up and become crispy and golden brown. Drain on wire rack.
Chocolate Sauce
1.In a pot, bring a cup of water to a simmer.
2.Add a large metal bowl over top of the pot. In the metal bowl add the chocolate and whipping cream then whisk until it melts together.
3.Drizzle generously over fritters.
