Changed it up a bit. No shrimp, broccoli and cauliflower for veg, garlic mashed spuds with the dreaded truffle oil, mushrooms au gratin, and a hunk of St Agur for good measure...chased it down with a good healthy amount of Cab Sav....early night tonight.

Yeah. Thanks. I am trying to adhere to the 1/3 veg to starch to meat ratio. Getting it right on the plate is easy. It's getting it into my stomach that isn't. The meat always seems to disappear but there is always some of that darned green stuff loitering around long after dinner is done.

St Agur is blue cheese
Lovely isn't it?

I ended up making chicken schnitzel with a lovely pan sauce, some parsley potatoes tossed in brown butter and steamed asparagus. Quick and easy.

Well, turns out we were in the mood for something a little more than a sandwich, so we went out tonight and treated ourselves to a few oysters and some bubbly. One of our favorites.

Can't cook, eh? I'm starting to wonder if you didn't hurt your ankle on purpose. Looks great!
