Looks, YUM, Steve. Unfortunately I can't eat oysters (or most shellfish) but the picture makes me wish I could! TB would love that!

i'm back at work early tonight after sleeping all day, so i'm still not sure what's for dinner.

i have a strange craving for a reuben , or maybe chinese food, or possibly pizza and a salad.

Wish I felt better, I'd be knocking on your door with pot in hand.

Recipe please.

Have you tried creamed coconut? It comes in a block and you grate it. It can be added straight into a liquidy dish or reconstituted to coconut milk or cream. It's particularly handy if you don't want to increase the liquid or if you don't need a whole can of coconut milk.

We had the Steak au Poivre that we were going to have last night, steamed mixed veg with garlic butter, and brown basmati rice (it was already cooked and in the freezer). Stirling cooked it. It was really good and my steak was cooked to perfection.

I'm looking forward to your recipe Steve. I love oyster stew and haven't had it in ages.

Since I had whole milk and cream from Christmas that needed to be used, I made up another batch of Scalloped Potatoes for just us and froze some for later. Some Brats from the freezer, and Cole Slaw finished the meal.

We started with a green salad with a French-style vinaigrette. Main dish: Large shrimp in a garlic/white wine/butter sauce - brown rice on the side. Dessert: Mexican Chocolate Icebox Cake.
