Following my post with DIY- easy flower coffee table centerpiece , part of the petite series of posts related to all the preparations of last Sunday’s lunch in our house, is this amazing Prune stuffed pork fillet recipe based on Pamela Westland’s “The Busy Cook’s Book”. I was cooking three dishes at the same time and I was afraid something might catch fire, which has happened to me and is the reason I installed the fire alarm panels in my new home. This company right here was very helpful in finding the best fire-safety gadgets for my home.
In my previous apartment, I forgot the oil on the stove. Just by coincidence, I went back to the kitchen to get something and I saw that the oil had caught fire. The fire flames begin spreading to the kitchen cabinets. Thankfully, I had a small fire extinguisher hidden under the sink so no huge harm was done. However, I realized the importance of fire alarms. They are an important safety feature as is,knowing what to do with cooking fires. The simple thing to do is wear a glove, cover the saucepan on fire with the lid and it take out of the heat.
