    I did an easy meal last night - Frikadellen burgers in a roll.
    Need to use potatoes and eggs/tomatoes for tonight's meal.

    we have fresh mackerel from the fish monger to go with new potatoes.  I might do a small tomato salad as well.  Not sure if the chef is doing the fish on the bbq or not.  Honking huge strawberries for afters.  I mean HONKING HUGE - the duck eggs we get from the market are smaller.  Courtesy of Aldi!

    I made Delia's cake of the week Chocolate Soured Cream Cake | Recipes | Delia Online for a treat this evening as I had all the ingredients already and needed to use up the sour cream which had been hanging about in the fridge for ages.

    would you like me to stop off for some farm fresh milk on my way over to share a slice of cake???

    our mackerel last night was amazingly nice.  OH lathered on some olive oil and sea salt and did them on the bbq using indirect heat so they weren't singed.  he also did a very simply salad of small tomatoes cut in half, chunks of yellow pepper and fresh basil in a light vinaigrette.  just what one needs to cut the oil of the fish.  there was also a drop or two of chardonnay consumed....

    tonight will be rump steaks on the bbq.  portobello mushrooms stuffed with garlic herb goat cheese roulade.  not sure if there will be potatoes (new, baked or fried) or sourdough.  lots of strawberries left.  they needed to be cut into quarters before serving so lots left from yesterday.

    Did chicken souvlaki on the barbecue. But rather than do them as the traditional kebab, I cut two chicken breasts in half and then bashed them with a rolling pin to make escalopes. Then put those in the souvlaki marinade in the fridge for a few hours before cooking on the barbecue.

    We had them with potato wedges as I didn't have any pittas, must remember to put them on the shopping list next time!
