Since, we are both on Vacation, we have decided to have some calamari and Shrimp or a fab Pizza out with Prosecco and then, tomorrow early in the morning, we shall do our Weekly Shopping.

Thanks, for the compliments.
Have a lovely Monday.
Margi.
Margi, what a lovely pizza, I am sure it tastes fabulous

We did steak and taters on the BBQ. I had a nap about 4pm so I was too groggy to do much but hand the stuff to Ken and point at the BBQ. I did manage to make a tasty sesame sauce for the steak and a nice green salad to go with. Couldn't QUITE figure out what cooked veggie to do so we went without.

I made a pesto with basil and mint from the garden. We had it with Felicetti whole grain, organic fusilli. Dessert was the 2nd half of the berry mousse I made yesterday.

Basil and MINT? How did that come out? And what proportions did you use. I've got enough mint to make mojitos for the entire province so any recipes would be welcome.

Foraging today, too hot to shop. Found cabbage, mayo, cider vinegar, made coleslaw. Mmmm, caraway seed and celery salt, Dijon mustard. Four boneless loin pork chops...bbq. Just right with iced tea. Sadie got one of the chops, no sauce. One chop left over for pork fried rice.

I often add mint to pesto--proportions are "to taste" but about 1/4-1/3 mint to basil is what I do. What about parsley? You could make tabbouleh since you have tomatoes, etc. and add the mint to that.

I think it was about 1/4 mint. It was very good. The mint is subtle. It adds a cool note.

You could give Margi's Roasted Beetroot, Feta Mint Mousse or Cottage Cheese or Ricotta a try. I really liked it. That mousse was really good, and I don't like mint!

Don't forget mint juleps and mint jelly - make some apple jelly, bruise a few mint leaves, swish them through the jelly while it is still hot. Throw away the leaves.

I had a baked rice dish. I bought a bunch of cans of Campbell's cream soups on sale this winter, and put it in the oven, then sliced some chicken breasts I'd cooked over coals last weekend and made a mix. Turned out OK. Husband is still doing some of the cooking, while I limp around telling him what to do.

i'm in the middle of fixing the lawn mower (the damn pull start cord broke), and then i need to get some chemicals down, and then i have a late doctor's appt., so my dinner will be very late tonight. probably sushi since there's a good sushi joint across the street from my doc.

pics later.
thanks chaps,i was a bit disappointed with the spuds tho'.run out of home grown from bolas's so bought some.seems all the rain we've had has resulted in a very "wet" potato crop this year.they boiled & riced fine but cooked down into the sauce in the oven.changed the texture of the sauce but,yes k,it was delicious.
not surprised you need the doc after getting some chemicals down tom,i'd stick to beer in future.....and no,i for one don't want to see the pics...just stick to your food photo's please!!
