Twittering away


I have been caught up with a new toy - tweeting. 

I don't really know what I am doing but enjoy being a mad person talking to myself. And worse to others that don't reply to me!

But learning so much and reading beyond my usual Guardian brainwash.

So not gone or forgotten just playing. Join me @deemaspice

Happy Mother's Day!

This is Deema aged 16 - I think. 

Doubt she ever thought at this age that she would become the bestest ma to two people.

somewhere written by my award-winning journalist aunt. 
Deema's elder sister.

Stories of what it was like growing up in a small village in Sri Lanka during the 1930s. Recounting traditions, describing familiar places but revealing new depths and perhaps most importantly providing me with ever lasting memories of my mum's family.

Mr Robin

Nothing to do with food! But meet my newest friend. Mr Robin who kept me company yesterday whilst I was gardening.
He found his grub and I think was quite chuffed.

Rugger Bugger Food - Spicy Chicken Drumsticks

My eldest attended the first, of what I assume, will be many end of season rugby celebrations. Hyped, hormonal, fit boys getting together to celebrate a pretty good club rugby season. What they did, was best not imagined.

I was told I had to make his contribution of food for the party. And no, Asda's frozen saussage rolls would not do. Could I please make devilled eggs and roasted spicy drumsticks?

So I sent him with drumsticks made with Deema's Spice and 6 devilled eggs as I am a good ma.

I was told the eggs were eaten on the way. He did cycle to the club but again best not to ask. But I was told the drumsticks were a hit with the 'dudes'.

I forgot to measure everything but this is the recipe for 16 spicy drumsticks:
Breadcrumbs, 25g butter, 2 tablespoons of Deema's Spice, a dash of seasame oil, pepper, salt, 2 tablespoons of soya sauce and left over champagne usually white wine but it was our anniversary!

Mix it all together. Pierce the chicken and spread the crumbly mixture and bake. Pour more wine (or champagne!) once you turn over the chicken.

Voila Rugger Bugger food.
