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.


That's pretty much the diet I'm on, except I'm not having salt, nor the stock cube.....just hot water !! *le sigh*..

Hope ewe're feeling better !! TMM

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.


Hmmmmm duck !!...I hear ewe love dick !!..DUCK !! lol !!

Did ewe crisp the skin ?..did ya ?..did ya ?...

Fennel, I can tolerate..I might have gone for tarragon..so there !! *sticks out tongue and blows raspberry in her general direction*


Of course that's what the isle of wight is famous for...big old beefteak tomatoes and multi coloured sand !

Butler was lax this evening FIRE HIM 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 YUK to start with followed by a half dozen escargot throws up !...huuuuuurrrl. Only a thin soup tonight - dark onion with a hint of garlic. Ewe must mean a consommé !..sheesh !! No class at all !..bereft of any distinction !! I never miss the fish so I enjoyed a serving of lightly curried scallops. That's better...completely destroy some beautiful scallops by currying them...I give up !! A bit of Italian pomegranate sorbet cleansed the pallet Adequate for the nicely turned quail with shallots and artichoke hearts that followed. Improvement, I'm almost impressed !! I must say the tenderloin medallions in the wild mushroom sauce were excellence. Now ya talkin !! A spring mix of greens with a sweet yellow pepper cartwheel made a delightful intermezzo.  Bon, tres nice !!Then, a nicely ripe Gorgonzola preceded the trusty old spotted dog, Acceptable, ...Roquefort is the real deal though !! 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. BURP !! 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. Oy, FBI, he grows his own !!

I topped it all off with a large can of Foster's  An Australian dessert lager ? 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. FIRE HER !!

What? Have you been roasting the children, i.e, the mullets again? I should have said "... the children remaining in the house again."

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!

They make the finest smoked black forest ham !!...well..DOH !!..of course !!..but it is fantastic !!  ;D

Hey !!..how dy'a manage to sneek through some parmigiano ?..is it allowed ?

It could have been locally (black forest) smoked Norwegian Blue parrot - I was implying that the meat also comes from the BF :)

The cheese - there is no problem moving (most) stuff around as Germany and Italy (and soon Switzerland) are part of the Schengen Agreement. It's similar to buying say, lamb in Wales and then driving it to England....

Switzerland can't be part of the Schengen agreement  because it's not one of the EU countries although it's one of the older European countries (historically).

Cheeses, chocs and clocks plus other controversial stuff

Hi Rosalind - there is no link between the Schengen agreement and the EU member countries - please have a look at this site http://www.schengenvisa.cc/ where it states:

"All Schengen countries are in Europe. However, it should not be confused with the EU (European Union). Schengen and European Union are two different agreements between European countries. A total of 30 countries, including all European Union countries (except Ireland and United Kingdom) and three non-EU members (Iceland, Norway, and Switzerland) have signed the Schengen agreement. However, only 15 countries have implemented the common border control and visa provisions."

Also, this site : http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/news_digest/Switzerland_links_up_to_European_police_files.html?siteSect=104&sid=9482144 that stated on August 11, 2008 "Switzerland links up to European police files -
Police is (sic) set to link up to the Europe-wide database system this week as part of Switzerland's membership in the Schengen security cooperation agreement."

Heres a recipe for one of last weeks main course dinners .. Yummmmmmmy! One of me favorites.. try it it is delicious!

Chicken Rolls Kiev


3 Whole Chicken breasts, skinned, boned, halved
Juice from ˝ lemon
Salt
2 Tablespoons butter
˝ Cup flour
1 egg, beaten with 1 Tablespoon of Water
1 Cup dry fine Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Oil, for Deep Frying
Sour Cream, for garnish
Paprika for garnish
Finely chopped Green Onions also for garnish, (optional)

Pound each half chicken breast very thin between 2 sheets of wax paper. Sprinkle with Lemon juice and salt. Place a teaspoon of butter on each, and roll each up tightly closing ends on beginning part to enclose butter in side. Make sure sides are tucked in well to encase the butter completely. Roll in flour, then in egg beaten with water, then in Bread Crumbs. Press crumbs into meat so that each roll is completely coated. Refrigerate until chilled. Pour oil into wok to a 3inch depth. Heat oil to 375 degrees F. or (191 Degrees C) or until a one inch cube of bread dropped into oil browns in about 60 seconds. With tongs, lower 2 or 3 chicken rolls into hot oil and fry about 4 minutes until deep golden brown. Drain on paper towel. Arrange on warm plates and spoon a little sour cream over each serving. Sprinkle with paprika and finely chopped onions if you like. Serve at once. Makes six chicken rolls. If you use a deep fryer, set it to 375 and then do 4 at a time. If they are pretty big breasts, leave them for 5 minutes instead of 4 minutes.
