Stress Cooking

As I’ve mentioned before I’m a bit of a stress cook, ie. I cook when I’m stressed and it makes me feel better. However, this is a slightly different method of stress cooking. This is cooking and being stressed out from the cooking. In this particular case I was told about an hour before three and a half guests were due to arrive for a dinner party (the half being the most adorable two-year-old you’ve ever seen who then spent the entire evening alternating between poking, prodding, pawing at, hugging and kissing me and yelling, “JAAAAACKIE!” every time I left the room) that I needed to come up with some kind of appetiser dish and make some potatoes to go with the main course. Oh heck.

To make things worse it was ridiculously hot, muggy and uncomfortable today, I had a very late night last night, and because I’m on antibiotics right now I was feeling very under the weather. Anyway, this is a little recipe I whipped up, prepared and then got Momma Lee to put into the oven so I could go and have a lie-down for a couple of hours. Despite that, these turned out very nicely.
