Chicken and rice, chicken and rice.. always gotta say it twice. Not getting as bored of it as one would think one would, as cooking chicken.. let me count the ways. :wink:

Thinking of a paleo dish to have for supper :-k a carrot.. steamed courgette... I'm all out of viable options for Mag's disposition. :(

A wheat bread sandwich of chicken salad with walnuts and grapes followed by crushed pineapple drizzled over angel food cake. It was all so scrumptious. :P

Mags, it's time for you to take a vacation from chicken. Aren't you getting tired of it? What are the other meats you can consume? An acquaintance of mine slow cooked an African lamb dish that was exceptional that had pine nuts, apricots, all spice. He makes use of library cookbooks always experimenting and he incorporated many spices which he didn't elaborate on, but the gravy the lamb was bathed in was complex, but elegant simultaneously.

I have trouble finding spices out here in the middle of nowhere, but London should have an exceptional variety.

Do you have the time and energy to experiment at home? Can you grill in your courtyard?

..oh I have sushi, lamb, seafood, and other such stuff on some days.. I'm just trying to optimise the self by consuming clean and efficient fuel most days.. it's what builds great physiques and focused minds. I'd been relying on bags of Rowntrees sweets as a quick-fix energy rush, which is not a great long-term solution. 8-[

I'm going to give a falafel recipe a try, and make bread and quiches and pasta etc. with cassava flour, so watch this space Wendy. :D

Having some Organic Sauvignon Blanc, whilst waiting for some free-range Toulouse sausages (to go into a couple of gluten/dairy free petit pain) to cook.. gonna make up some mustard to go with, from powder not seeds.

Cassava flour is ground up bush? Holy cows! And it tastes okay? I don't believe that wood pulp can become a delicious pizza crust, but I'm looking forward to you proving me wrong.

..it's a shrub, but it's mainly the tubers that are utilised for consumption.. it's been a staple food for those in the Tropics for 1000s of years.

It tastes fantastic.. I grew up on the stuff.. my family posting it over to here, so that we could eat the food of our ancestors.. well, that ancestral line at least.
