Whole chickens were on sale at the market yesterday so I baked one, and ate it's poor legs off. So today I have a double chicken breast bone-in. What to do, what to do? I have some Mahatma yellow (saffron) rice (mix) I made a few days ago... I bought some chicken stock at the market today, and thinking of making some Velouté or Soubise (= with onions) sauce. Might toss in some cheese and make Mornay, or White Soubise (Soubise with cream added).

One nice thing about French mother sauces, you might have to add specific ingredients to claim it's "such 'n so" sauce, but there are no rules if you don't specifically name it.

FYI Soubise sauce starts with Velouté sauce: Make a roux (butter and flour) then expand it with a stock (in this case chicken stock). I season mine with a dash of nutmeg. For Soubise you add grated onion. For White Soubise you then add some cream. (You can add cream to almost any sauce to make it... you guessed... more creamy!)

I might make a sort of Mornay/Soubise sauce, cheese and onions.

I've waited all summer for the tomatoes to FINALLY ripen.

We had our usual "if it's warm weather it's a salad" plus what we call "Grillburgers". Mom worked at Woolworth's and that's what they called Patty Melts. Good ol' American cheese on mine, provolone for Himself. Too full for the intended cantaloupe with ice cream dessert.
