My Saturday morning.

Anyone who reads this blog will know by now that I am a waste not cook, so today I was looking at some smoked mackerel pâté ,which lurked in the fridge. Too much to throw out, so what can I do with it?
Answer. To make a tapenade, but with slightly different ingredients.
 Black & green olives obviously, then some grainy mustard, a couple of Cornishons, some capers,garlic and parsley.a slug of oil,and the smoked mackerel pâté, but the extra ingredient has been some of my chilli in vinegar ,in fact the tail end of a pot! The colour is paler than the usual tapenade, but it tastes reasonable enough. 
I have also made 3 jars of Apricot jam ( the fruit is such good value in Lidl) ,
plus some ,Peperonata  and then a big pan of Caponata, some of which I had with a little broccoli for my lunch .
Very Sicilian!
