Well, here I am, STILL looking after my 3 young grandchildren & in 2 whole weeks, I've managed to create the sum total of 3 pieces, some filled Easter egg halves & a basket of pink champagne truffles. Unfortunately, I can’t upload pics just yet as my camera & light box (all necessary ingredients to try & get a reasonable photo!) are at home...when I get back I’ll show everyone just how unproductive 3 kids under 7 can be! LOL
Just another week to go & then I’ll be back in my mini sweatshop, trying desperately to catch up on the backlog of orders that has built up while I’ve been away!
While I’m here, with the odd few minutes to spare to actually update my blog, I’d like to welcome all my new followers & to them I say, “please bear with me.....I will surely get more time to update once this final babysitting marathon is over!
Having cooked the kids some salmon tonight, I thought I’d show you some work I did last year, although I have to confess that I’m not a great fan of salmon...ssshh don’t tell anyone!
Salmon steaks cooked in a rich hollandaise sauce in an aged enamelled dish...well, perhaps I might force myself to eat that! :))
By the way, that’s a lemon twist on the top, just in case you were wondering!
This is an Atlantic salmon tail with steaks, vine tomatoes, celery & peppers. Although this photo doesn’t show it, the seeds are visible in the red pepper.
Now, perhaps I might be tempted to eat a salmon provencal dish made with these ingredients...plus some garlic, a few mussels, maybe some fennel.......
8 days & counting!!!
