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.

why am I having trouble picturing this? "home grown chili beans", it must be really early here in the morning cause I can't figure this out

I am impressed, that's great!
Dinner ended up being 4 of my moms huge ruby red grapefruits, sqeezed dry into a cup and then the pulp scraped. Adore the stuff . too pooped to cook or do much of anything, major drive, hubby still not home, gonna grab a Micky D's fillet of fish.

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.

Have a chuck roast going in the slow cooker, will have mashed potatoes and lots of gravy from the meat with added sliced mushrooms. Made some biscuits and will just warm them a little, a nice green salad with avocado,sweet onion rings,tomatoes I just picked,cucumber, and some chopped parsley and mint and steamed broccoli with anchovy garlic butter on top. A big bowl of sliced peaches and nectarines from our trees icy cold with some ginger snap cookies.

I'm having Sinutab and a few NeoCitron. ( Can you tell I have a horrible cold?) He'll probably have cheese, crackers, and pickles. he can handle cooking that.
