A spicy, skinny and flavorful dish, the Ras El Hanout chicken served with a spicy carrot couscous. Arabic cuisine at its best.
What a day, what a day. Today, the chimney sweeper came by to wipe clean the chimney. Of course we do that every year, because a chimney fire, you obviously do not want to experience. He saw that the drainpipe at the top of the roof was stuffed and poked right through it. Great service. However, what he did not know (and we frankly did not know it either) was that the pipe was somehow stuffed at a lower point too, because of fallen leaves. The small roof was completely flooded (about 20 cm deep) and began to hung by dangerous slope. And the water seeped through the lamp and the frame down in my house. I began to make sure our bunnies were in safety and my husband, who is the coolness itself, jumped on the ladder and removed the blockage right away. And within 5 minutes all the water was gone. What a luck that chimney sweeper warned us early so we could intervene right away, who knows what would have happened otherwise.
The leafs had surprised us. One year is worse than the other and this year we had not discovered the problem in time. That will not happen to us again for the time being. Also in this case, prevention is better than …
As for dinner today I made a spicy, delicious and slim recipe called Ras El Hanout chicken with a spicy carrot couscous. And it does not take much time to prepare it. Especially if you marinate the chicken the evening before. In that case you have put this on the table within 20 minutes. This meal is delicious with a nice arugula salad. Tasty.
