Tonight we had friends over for dinner and I decided on a Moroccan menu. In southern WV there are very few dining choices aside from chain restaurants, Chinese buffets, and a few Mexican places. If you want something more exotic you have to make it yourself! On tonight's menu were sesame flatbreads, a chicken, chickpea, and apricot tagine, spiced couscous, mint tea, and for dessert a date and walnut cake and a almond filo dessert. Most of the recipes came from my Essential Mediterranean cookbook.
The tagine was fruity and pretty tasty. I don't have an actual tagine and I don't think they sell them at my Wal-Mart so I took the recipe's advice and used my crock pot. Worked great! This had chicken, chickpeas, tomatoes, carrots, various spices, honey, and dried apricots. It was good and smelled wonderful! I served it with a spiced couscous with currents and toasted pecans. I had a picture of it but it seems to have gotten deleted from my camera card! :(
