Come and dine with me…our own version! So many things to look forward to this weekend…I can’t wait!

27 Apr

Come Dine With Me is a popular Channel 4 television programme shown in the United Kingdom, produced by Granada Television (now known as ITV Studios) and first broadcast in January 2005. The show has either four or five amateur chefs competing against each other hosting a dinner party for the other contestants. Each competitor then rates the host’s performance with the winner winning a £1,000 cash prize. An element of comedy is added to the show through comedian Dave Lamb, who provides a dry and “bitingly sarcastic” narration.

The format has been taken up by many other broadcasters throughout the world…and by us as well. My husband and I, and a couple of good friends now instead than go out for dinner in swanky restaurants or local gastro pubs, we discovered the pleasure (and the effort) of inviting people around, experimenting new recipes and of course, enjoy the time spent together while enjoying an homemade dinner and a good bottle of wine. Last night was “the other couple come dine with me” and we really enjoyed dinner!

I prepared myself for lunch with just a healthy and big salad after have been to the gym (I am trying so hard in these days at the gym to be in shape for our holiday), been running errands all day and finally it was dinner time!

Salmon with asparagus and potatoes and cream pie…gorgeous!!!

Pudding was so good, I must admit I was a bit worried when I saw bananas going around the kitchen (I eat bananas only when they are green or I do not digest them), but my worries went away as soon as I taste the banana, cream and chocolate cake…so good…well done Joe and Becky, our turn again very soon!

I was a bit sad yesterday, after three years spent together my beloved car had to leave me…how can you get close to a car? I don’t know but I did!!! Goodbye Tinkerbell….

I have been working out again today and I probably I will do it again tomorrow and even on Sunday, I can’t feel my arms right now I’m struggling to write!!! Miami…here we come soon!!!I wish an amazing weekend to everyone!

    Come dine with me is such a fun show. I watch it when I´m home at mom´s in Norway. Always nice to try out new concepts dinnerwise

    Cooking, such a chore, but I love all the cooking programs. Can’t believe those young Australian kids on Masterchef Australia!
