I'm really liking Nigella's current TV series Nigella Kitchen. So far it has already inspired me to make two of its recipes, and there are a few more I'd like to try out. Tonight I did spaghetti alla puttanesca a.k.a. slut's spaghetti. It was very tasty. I'm quite fond of pasta with tomato sauce and it's nice to have several variations to choose from.

This afternoon I went to the library, for the first time in almost a year. Something had gone wrong with the automatic renewal of my membership and had to be sorted out, and five books I want to read urgently were *all* available. A very successful visit.

But first I want to finish Thumbelina. I'm afraid it looks like it will end in a vale of tears.

I couldn't fancy Nigella's black risotto. Her food is rather rich for me. I'm liking the new Nigel Slater series, though.

I rather like her rich food, because it is filling and stops me from becoming hungry again too soon after.

Black is a very unappealing colour for food. I don't know if squid ink adds a certain flavour, but I would prefer to leave it out. It just looks gimmicky to me.

I'll also have to overcome a mental hurdle before making the spaghetti with Marmite. I like the stuff, but the idea of spaghetti with Marmite is slightly off-putting.

The first episode of Nigel Slater's programme coincided with Sherlock here, but that's finished now, so I can watch it next Wednesday. Thanks for the tip!
