I would love to smoke things but I don’t have a smoker and each time I suggest to Dave that I turn my electric frying pan into one, he kind of ignores me. I do not use my electric frying pan at all. It was one of the first kitchen utensils I purchased and it was used originally to make paella in – now I have a proper paella dish. If it was not being used for paella, it was used for prawns. We would sit at the breakfast nook and cook and eat and eat and cook so that we always had a pile of freshly cooked, hot prawns to devour. Now I have a gas burner on my butcher’s block which can be moved to the table for that job. So, for about 4 years the electric frying pan has been languishing under the bunk beds in what is my hidden storage place – the one for things I might need one day! I took the electric frying pan out of the box and put it under the bed as my friend Sonja wanted it. But she has never fetched it, and the last time I looked, she had bought a new one for herself. So, as I don’t have a smoker and Dave does not seem to want to help me turn my electric frying pan into one, I used smoked salt and smoked paprika to ‘smoke’ my marrow bones. Marrow bones are a cheap off cut of meat and this meal cost us R20 (€2) and was an absolute bargain! A perfect warming meal for the cold winter nights we are still experiencing here in the Western Cape.
