This miserable weather

It seems that it is bringing the baker out in all of us.  There is nothing quite like a day in the kitchen when the weather is miserable and instead the whole house is filled with delicious smells from the kitchen.

The finely sliced veal heart which had been marinating all morning was grilled really fast and served with a courgette salad with a sharp lemony dressing.  The flavour was wonderful and the texture more like that of sirloin steak.  For desert we tucked into a slice of the above pie/cake - it is the one featured on the hairy bikers program and is essentially a chocolate brownie inside a pie crust - most unusual but also very nice with a splash of cream or custard or just as it is with a cup of tea.  It is sort of dual purpose either a desert or a tea time treat.  There is a flaw in the recipe on the net in that they have forgotten to add the raising agent so I added 1.5 tsp of baking powder and it seems to have done the trick.
