a review and a recipe...

First, big thanks to cataromance for this interview and a nice review of Expecting Miracle Twins.

Also, I can now bring you the recipe for a wonderful salad that was part of our romance writers gathering at Tarzali a couple of weeks ago. Thanks so much, Mervet!! I can assure you, this is delicious!!!! My (southern) family are arriving tomorrow (school holidays, you know) and this will be on the menu.

Warm Salad of Bacon, goats cheese and grapes:

Serves 8 - cook time 20 minutes.

6 rashers of streaky bacon, sliced thickly
2 witloaf leaves separated
1 (200g fisee, trimmed50g wild rocket leaves (I use mixed leaves instead of these 3)
110g goats cheese, crumbled
2/3 cup (80g) toasted walnuts
150g small seedless red grapes, halved.
1/2 cup (125ml) extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup (60ml) white wine vinegar
2 tbl spoons walnut oil
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon caster sugar, salt and freshly ground pepper.
(I usually put the dressing in a jar and give it a really good shake so it fuses together - delicious!)
