a really delicious chicken dinner

Hello blog-o-sphere, is anyone out there?  I have been so slack, I can’t believe it myself.  I did a mental new years resolution to blog once a week, I knew I shouldn’t have allowed that thought to enter my brain space.  Now March is nearly over and I haven’t blogged all year.  Note to self – never allow any thoughts of NY resolutions ever again.

I have had many many ideas for blogs and half started ones too – here is a little taste of what you’ve missed.
The debarcle called making shortbread at christmas.

   They aren’t really pink, its just a really bad photo.  I was striving for really pale shortbead. C’est impossible.

The best of summer recipes – my friend the incredibly wise for someone so young N sent me some photos of her delicious prawn rice paper rolls. I was also going to add my own summer version of same dish – I use prawns, mango, avocado and mint. So yum!!

I was going to tell you about my oh so mysterious dog Pirate.  I thought that it was abit unfair that I posted a love blog to Nancy but hadn’t mentioned Pirate.  Will definitely do this one day – he is spectacular.

I made a really really complicated cake, actually called Opera Torte.  Layers of almond sponge, coffee syrup, chocolate ganache and a coffee butter cream.  I even took one photo of the almond sponge but then completely forgot to take more photosof the process.  Dang!!  It was a birthday cake for Mama P so managed one photo of the completed cake.

Last week I made up a really delicious and easy ‘one baking tray’ dinner.  But alas, I forgot to take photos.  So I will make it again, take lots of photos and blog about it (another day).

    Those summer rolls look fantastic and Opera cake is so hard to do! I’ve never attempted it but well done for doing yours! 😀
