The other day, I had a delicious lamb tagine. It was a lovingly made, braised dish that took the chef hours to prepare. Though I generally dislike lamb, the chef used Australian lamb (which is a bit less game) and added enough wonderful Moroccan flavours, that I thoroughly enjoyed the dish. Regardless of how delicious I found it, I knew that it would never appeal to my picky son.
So . . .. I created this month’s recipe which aims to mimic the flavours of a traditional tagine with a quick and easy preparation and with main ingredients I knew would appeal to my son and to most kids, ground meat and pasta. It was a huge hit!
Magda’s Frugal Tip: Keep your mouth shut at the dentist — OK, so I don’t mean that literally, however, you may want to keep the chatter to a minimum. I have a great relationship with my dental hygienist, we have a lot in common and we both love to chat. However, my hygienist and my dentist and many other professionals, charge by the time spent in their office, not the time that they actually spend working. So, while you are relating the latest funny incident in your life, your dental health professionals cannot actually be doing what they need to do in your mouth and you are paying them to listen to you chat. So, perhaps you should keep you mouth open, but keep the chat to a minimum at least at the dentist’s office.
