Too many pies in my case. I promised myself (and everyone else) I'd make Greek courgette pie (Kolokythopitta) tonight. And I've just looked at some plums I bought a couple of days ago. They look like they're more likely to get eaten in a pie than in their raw state now! And seeing as I don't want to put the oven on too often in these baking hot Spanish summer days... I'll be making plum pie tonight as well. Hey ho. Bet we enjoy them anyway, especially if I can persuade someone to go out and get some vanilla ice-cream to go with the plum pie. Just as well I've hardly eaten anything today...

Tonight, I'm making thai-style cod and mango-cardamom bread pudding.

Can't think of anything better, Urmaniac! Home-made vanilla bean ice-cream... Now what girl could resist an offer like that? Not this one, that's for sure.

Indeed, it is to die for!! Once you taste ours, you would never think of a term like "plain old" for a vanilla ice cream!

btw, when you edit "quotes", make sure to leave those "code" thingy at the beginning and at the end of the quote... that will do the trick!!

That sounds really good!! We should do that some time, the water of Ostia is not very good for dipping yourselves in, but the beach is surely good for a picnic

I pounded 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves thin, then floured & sauteed them in some extra-virgin olive oil & butter. Removed them to a warm oven & added the juice of one lemon to the pan, stirred & poured over the cutlets as a quick pan sauce.

Served them with chopped spinach tossed with some crumbled feta cheese, & some lovely tiny Fingerling potatoes that I first boiled, then sliced into "coins" & sauteed in extra-virgin olive oil until golden-crisp outside, & tender inside. Dusted them with some hot Hungarian Paprika & sea salt.

Not a really swimming trip...just a "hey I like you...and let's do something spontaneous to get to know you" kind of date!!!
