How Tagine Saved Christmas

Or at least a snow day.

Nick usually works from home on Tuesdays, so I did some prep work on the first crockpot tagine and asked him to start it for us so it'd be ready for dinner last night.  Unfortunately, he really does WORK from home, so it didn't end up in the crock pot until nearly 7 last night, making 10 PM the earliest we could have eaten it.  Suffice it to say, I made us a workaround meal (pasta) while drooling over this teasingly undercooked tagine he'd put together.

Around 11, we called it done and put it in the fridge to save for today, which happens to be the first day we've been completely snowed in together.

Enter lunch:

It's marvelous.  The apricots (which I don't usually like) picked up the spices and flavors in a wonderful way, and the whole thing smells divine.  I had some toast with it, and it was the perfect cold day meal.  Yum.
