It's not supper time here yet, but last night I had a steamed tuna steak with roasted broccoli and spring salad.  Tonight I'm thinking it may be grilled chicken breast, salad and sauteed squash and zucchini.

*le yum*

A good tip is to place the chicken/meat joint on top of two onions halved !..it raises it off the pan, gives it a lovely flavour and oh my !..the onions caramelise into a fantastic gooey mess that then serves to make the most amazing gravy !

Carbonara, made with local smoked black forest ham, and parmigiano reggiano that I brought back from Italy. A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips....but worth it!

2 oxo cubes in hot water!

Not eaten much for a few days as I have a heavy cold so I'm keeping up the fluids and salt.

A new day a new meal. Tonight I had duck leg in tomato and fennel sauce with a baked potato. I love fennel and tomato with garlic and onion, white wine and a bay leaf. I bought beefsteak tomatoes from the farmers market. They are grown on the Isle of Wight.

Karen, OXO cubes are stock cubes made for beef, chicken, lamb or vegetable foods. Not bouillon/fish ones though.

I checked to see if you might be able to purchase them in the States but they are not made there but only in the UK & South Africa. No I don't know why.

Butler was lax this evening and didn't have cook do it correctly so I ended up having a rather shorter than normal dinner. I had a bit of caviar to start with followed by a half dozen escargot. Only a thin soup tonight - dark onion with a hint of garlic. I never miss the fish so I enjoyed a serving of lightly curried scallops. A bit of Italian pomegranate sorbet cleansed the pallet for the nicely turned quail with shallots and artichoke hearts that followed. I must say the tenderloin medallions in the wild mushroom sauce were excellence. A spring mix of greens with a sweet yellow pepper cartwheel made a delightful intermezzo. Then, a nicely ripe Gorgonzola preceded the trusty old spotted dog, which in turn was followed immediately by a double cream hand-made ice cream for which one of the servants had crushed the vanilla beans by hand and extracted the flavor with a unflavored doubly distilled liqueur. I then elected to have the cantaloupe with the almond and mint petite four. Retreating to the drawing room, I opted for a cup of the blend of coffee I grow myself in the solarium.

I topped it all off with a large can of Foster's and a some skinny dipping in the cement pond with the maid. Sometime life can be so boring. SO - I turned on the TV and watched on demand professional wrestling. The maid "had a headache from too much Foster's." Likely, I'm sure.

Karen that's fine but I am sure that there are an American equivalent
of OXO stock cubes or why not just make your own stock with the
 water/juices from the vegetables that you use.

Also the juices from fish and/or meat too.
Either use it now or freeze in ice cubes for the future,
(I do) Only the freezer is
full. Not for long

Or was it beans on toast???

I was late home after setting up the Biometrics exhibition & conference at the QE2 conference centre in Westminster so I had a take-away kebab cut from the turd on a roundabout.
