SANGRIA FOR A PARTY

Find a large bowl, about the size of a jam pan. In doubt, a jam pan would do nicely.

1 Litre of Fresh Orange Juice, or 1/2 Litre of concentrated Orange Squash.

Three bottles of fruity red wine.

1/2 Litre of Spanish Brandy.

4 Litres of Lemonade.

1 Bag of Ice Cubes

1. Pour the Orange Juice into the bowl.

2. Slice the fruit, and add to the bowl.

3. Add the Red Wine.

4. Add the Brandy.

5. Stir well.

6. Add Lemonade to taste, but for a mix this size, use at least 3 Litres.

7. Add the Ice Cubes.

Use a Ladle to serve into tall Glasses, including a selection of the fruit.

SPICY POTATO BITES

Start oven at Gas6/ 200degC/ 425degF

Peel some potatoes, then cut into bite size pieces.

Into a mixing bowl, pour some Olive Oil (Virgin or Extra Virgin is best), then add a good teaspoonful of Curry Powder. Mix well, then add the potato pieces, and stir so they are well coated. Tip the potato pieces onto a shallow roasting tin, and pour any remaining oil mix over them. Into the middle of the oven for about 40 minutes, turning every 10 minutes.

These are nice as finger snacks with a mild dip, or as an alternative to chips. Have them with a salad.

I prefer to use a very mild curry mix (Korma), but that is personal preference. Other spice mixes can be used, eg. Mexican or Cayjun.

Enjoy.
