Finger lickin chicken

 

Mmmm, cooking and me had fallen out, only saving it  for special occasions or when I invited guests.  So this year I set my intention to make more of an effort and cook something nice, good looking!! and  tasty for myself each day.  Tonights dinner was oh so tasty and oh so easy as I cooked it last night while cooking a stir fry and making butternut squash soup.chicken-for-dinner

First pour a glass of wine, and put on some music like  Chop up onions, celery and Red Pepper and sweat  in the olive oil and put aside, in the leftover oil, add a small knob of butter and brown off the chicken pieces.  Add back the onions, celery and red pepper back to the chicken, add the cherry tomatoes whole, add chicken stock, chopped thyme and chopped parsley and salt and pepper to taste.  Put on a lid and put in a medium hot oven for a 2 – 3 hours, leave for 24 hours and reheat, yummy.  Served with green bean, spinach and couscous with sauteed mushrooms and chopped fresh parsley.

red-table1wow, a first.  An image from my flickr was chosen to appear in a tourist guide for  Amsterdam.  Went there for a cool weekend with my dear friend Pete.  Spent the day viewing Andy warhol exhibition.  He has to be one of my all time inspirations in more ways than one, film footage, photography, imagery of all kinds, it just kept coming……one cool dude.  This exhibition is now on at the southbank, click image to go to website.  Lady with bushy hairdo is me!
