    Salads etc. Cooked and prepared cold chicken yesterday.
    I dug up , trimmed, washed and boiled some beetroot, then peeled and sliced it. Took ages. Then thought, is it worth it? It’s very nice, but could buy the same for next to nothing. Husband disagrees.

    Our cockerel. Dave. Despatched him a while ago and he’s been having a rest in the freezer.  Hope he’s worth all the bother!  Anyway, he’s got tomatoes, onions and green peppers, all home grown, and quite a lot of wine, some herbs and lots of garlic in there with him, so he should come out all right.  Dave au Vin.

    Fresh Breton creps, not sure if that’s spelt right. The things that look like flat pancakes. Anyway taking a tip from my new invigorated cook book reader, I dropped a lump of butter into a pot of chopped up mushrooms and popped the lid on had a look on ebay at a bashed car while the mushrooms simmered away. Half cooked  a fried egg popped the crep things into a frying pan again covered in healthy butter wrapped them up having a peek to make sure the egg did not over cook. Tasted nice but the presentation was not great  as they broke up a bit, but I have never claimed to be an expert chef, she did not complain so it could not have been that bad, cheap bottle of raspberry flavoured fizzy wine about 1% proof.

    :roll::lol: the question re breaking butter was for a starter which I ended up not making so it will be Saturday before it is tried but basically it looks like you “carefully” warm up the butter whilst whisking it, dip and cover whole radishes completely, chill it in the fridge for the butter to go solid and serve chilled, simple but will it be tasty? Not sure about healthy either :grin: but I presume the butter will only very lightly coat it. OH will of course refuse to try it so might need some unsuspecting dinner guests too.
