Recipe was this one. It’s a bit dry (although fine with custard), so I think next time I’d want to look for an alternate recipe.

A sort of chicken cacciatore. Very garlicky and a little bit dry. Recipe

Edit: When I added about 1-2 cups of plain water to it, it was much improved.

Whenever I forget why I don’t like chicken breast, I eat some, then I remember why I don’t like chicken breast. Dry breast and dry bread is not a good combination.

Sloe chocolate

This was what I used the left over sloes from the sloe gin for, using this suggestion. Unfortunately while I was heating the chocolate it seized so it’s not quite as nice as I want it to be. However I put it in the freezer so let’s see how it works out.

Costs 99p each at Waitrose!

At top left, parsley and capers. At bottom left, home made horseradish sauce from the garden. At top right, peas with marrow fat (explanation: I thought that marrowfat peas had actual marrow fat in them, which they don’t. However peas do seem to naturally go well with marrow, so it wasn’t a bad choice.)
