Last night I made Apple sauce chicken with courgette rice.

(Fry an onion and a couple of courgettes in butter, add two cups of short grain rice, when rice is translucent add a pint of chicken stock. Vegetable or my usual standby tamarind would work as well, but as we were eating it with chicken I used chicken stock.)

The chicken was really nice, and I bet it would be good in a bento with a green salad... or as a baked potato topping maybe.

I was muttering to myself "Chicken, right we need some, um, what's that word?"
J: Kiev
Me: Yes! Well done! Chicken Kievs are named after Kiev, which is the capital of the Ukraine. Did you know that?
J: Yes.

I guess I must have told her that before...

Tonight's dinner was well received and I was duly asked to write it down before I forgot.

1 onion
1 aubergine
some diced chicken (about as much by volume as the aubergine)
a handful of green beans
1 pomegranate
1 shrimp stock cube
1 avocado

Melt the ghee and fry the onion (chopped) and aubergines (cubed). Add the chicken and brown. Add the pomegranate seeds and juice and the roughly chopped beans. Add about a pint of water and the stock cube, keep stirring. Just before serving add the avocado, and make sure it's all mushed up and absorbed into the sauce.

I made noodle salad, and as I was making it, Judith came and asked me for an egg, so I poached eggs and had them on top. I wanted to remember as it was so well received (and tasty).

Fry mushroom, courgette and onion in ghee, prepare noodles (thin rice noodles in this case). Add the veg and frying ghee to the noodles, and stir. Add chopped salad ('oriental leaf' bag mix in this case), stir. A splash of date vinegar and mirin, stirred again, served with poached eggs on top (for J & me, Colin had grated cheese)

I think I did it that way round, rather than dressing first then leaves.

The other thing I made recently which everyone loved was honey&mustard chicken (as I tweeted the recipe):

Brown chunks of chicken, make roux flour/butter/mustard, add milk slowly, add thyme, spinach, honey, splash wine. Cook until thickened. #yum

(Spinach was an lump of frozen spinach. That's quite handy, frozen spinach comes in lumps about the size of two icecubes, and you can just throw one or two in to whatever for extra flavour/colour/vitamins. Great in curries/pasta sauces)

At the moment I'm craving poultry (still) and toast.
And Chinese food, a little.

"What I want" I thought to myself "is sesame prawn toast but with chicken instead of prawn".#
