Sorry girls I know I promised to post this recipe
a couple of days ago but...
I've had the dreaded flu
in the middle of Summer - how does that happen?
...and I'm feeling suitably
sorry for myself..sniff. cough!!!
I've been dosing myself up with
all manner of weird and wonderful potions!
My advice to family and friends for sore throats
is to swallow a peeled clove of garlic
wrapped in a spoon of the best honey...
(last thing at night)
then magically come morning
your sore throat has gone!
Did I take my own advice?
I was feeling so miserable I couldn't think
of anything, so I've let it ride it's course
in between popping panadol and
sipping "Gee's Linctus".
An old remedy for coughs
that the pharmacist will make up!
Enough of my ailments....!!!
CHICKEN AND OLIVES - THE RECIPE
click on the picture to enlarge so you can print it off!
When you do this you'll see the page is splattered
with bits of this and that,
which tells you it's a very well used recipe!
It's a one dish recipe which is what I
love about it.
I often add a lemon cut into ⅛ ths
(leave skin on).
I serve it with a simple green salad.
The recipe is from this book.
Julie is a well known New Zealand cook
with many stimulating books published.
You may be able to order it from your
local library if you're interested!
On my kitchen bench today is a new pot
of herbs, basil chives and coriander.
Behind it is a plate I bought at a market years ago
it's a copy of an Italian design I think.
Sitting in front of my recipe book holder
are two large cups
we have our first coffee of the morning
They are from Provence and the
mark on the back is "Terre Provence"!
I haven't used one recipe from this book
but I love the beautiful images
of French life
my daily reminder of where
my family live!
