Dinner - Thurs 2nd August

Making up dinner as I type here....

Roast chicken breast with herbs.

I'll be putting Feta cheese under the skin of my portion (wife don't like cheese!).

I can see this taking on a Greek theme so I think I'll serve with some aubergines (eggplant) and courgettes (zucchinis). I tend to dust these in flour and shallow fry in EVOO.

Guess rice to finish it off.

Perhaps a bottle of Retsina to go with it

I have the ingredients, but not the technique/method. Dinner will consist of bacon, cabbage, onions, garlic, celery, potatoes, carrots, s&p. Am about to head to the garden for "bug control" and will mull over how to put this together.

Sharp cheddar, grapes, and whole grain crakers as an appetizer, then mongolian beef over rice, and finally, a lava cake for dessert.

I have no idea but looking in here for an inspiration! It is very hot here today so hopefully something of the no-cook variety.
