The food is almost ready to go.
1.Mulled Wine - it is so cold outside. This is made with a bottle of very cheap Merlot, 1/2 cup brown sugar, two star anise, 1 cinnamon stick and the juice and rind of a lime. It is warm and yummy
2. Greek chicken skewers - strips of chicken breast, zest of a lime, 3 cloves garlic crushed, 1/2 cup thick natural yogurt and some chopped mint. Mix all together and let marinate for 1/2 hour. Put onto skewers and fry quickly in the pan.
Serve with dipping sauces - we have Labneh (made by straining natural yougurt), tomatoe sauce and Sweet chilli sauce
3. Potatoe wedges - slice up potatoes, add 2 Tablespoons oil, sprinkle on paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Roast in oven 200oC fan bake.
4. Crostini - made from the leftover bread from lunch, slice thinly and bake in same oven for 15 minutes. Heat some black olives for an accompaniment.
