Behind the story
This story came out of a discussion at a meeting of the writer's group that I am involved in. We were talking about setting scenes, building tension and writing suspense, thriller and horror. So we each agreed to take the challenge.
I wanted to try something different, and come at the challenge from an alternative approach. Let me know what you think.
Today I was sent a link to HEMA's website (they are a dutch department store). They have an imaginitive web-coder, just let the page load and give it 5 secs. Make sure your sound is turned on. http://producten.hema.nl/
Here is the recipe, for those that want it. I did this for the family on New Year's Eve, a great winter warmer and perfect for small gatherings. I did double the amount in order to feed 7.5 (Toby was .5 :)) apart from not doubling the jalapeno peppers in order to reduce the spicy heat a little. This double also provided enough to feed 3 more people on another evening so more like food for 10-11 people. I also cook this in the slow cooker, on High, for four hours. We find this works better and allows the ingredients longer to mix flavours.
This is a recipe passed on to me by Mum. See started the copy with "Wish I could recall where this came from for certain – but I think Nanna (My Nanna, my Mum's Mum) got the recipe when she attended a cookery course at Denman College (the WI college) whilst I was still in primary school!)"
