Every day, around mid afternoon, my husband sets the table for dinner, no doubt in anticipation that within a few hours, some food will appear as if by magic...... he'll pour the selected wine..... and we'll sit down together for another meal
Yesterday I got to thinking just how many meals I have prepared over the years
The mind boggles....
Nowadays I'm almost on autopilot as I preplan the simple evening meal, taking into consideration many factors.....fat, sugar, cholesterol, protein, fibre, carbs, gluten, etc.
Then I make my decision ......and trot out to the garden......
My herb garden...bursting with health, vitamins and minerals
spring onion, curly parsley, rocket, basil,
Vietnamese mint, brown mignonette lettuce, Italian parsley, mint
coriander, lemongrass and iceberg lettuce.
My little patch has done well this year.....
Gathering what I need it's back into the kitchen to prepare.... a masterpiece !
and in almost no time at all it's done and ready for the table....
"Thai Lime and Lemongrass Chicken"
Delicious......and oh so easy
My husband says....."I'd pay money for that" ......Truly a compliment
"Thank you darling," I say.... and another meal is done and dusted !
