Yum, 'arry. As usual. You eat good food and I love the food porn pictures. Keep it up!

I'm taking your idea of seafood for dinner as well. Tonight will be Tilapia and bay scallops in garlic butter with twisted green bean casserole.

I'm defrosting a half chicken I'll roast. Some salad and rice will fill the rest of the plates.

What seasoning will you use, Andy? I'm looking for tasty options.

I have tons of spices, especially after receiving my latest Penzey's order, but my baked chicken is dreary and I'm looking for ideas.

Sorry, Z. Just salt and pepper on the chicken tonight.

I took some frozen Gyros meat and fried it... along with it came rice and Zaziki and some coleslaw..
well, the gyros wasn't even half as good as from the greek Restaurant we mostly go, but in the end I'm not hungry anymore ;o)

I like to make a mixture of a little salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, and rosemary. Brush a little soy sauce under the skin, put the mixture under there and rub it around, and brush soy sauce over the skin, too.

The soy sauce adds a great savory flavor and the salt in it helps dry the skin, making it nice and crispy.

The reason for the "Do not freeze" was probably because they've already been frozen and thawed.

When I worked at M&S over Christmas many moons ago they didn't put things on offer when they reached the used by date they used to sell them to the staff at the end of the day for pennies. A fantastic perk. That was in the days when they cared about the staff and had chiropodists, hairdressers and an all day canteen serving (free IIRC) breakfast, lunch and cakes and coffee and tea at mid-morning and mid-afternoon breaks. They paid better than most shops too.
