Sunday Afternoon

A few weeks go by and I haven't been blogging much due to this illness that has laid me low.  I haven't been eating much either, making me feel as though I am missing an old friend.  Cooking and enjoying good food are my solace, my link to happiness and when I am unable to get into the kitchen due to illness then I am miserable.  

Today I decided that I needed to find something that appeals to me to eat so I put a tray of Lemon Sponge Custards in the oven as citrus sounds like a good thing right now.  I made a big batch of Chicken Coconut Curry with Basmati Rice and although I have not eaten any of it the house smells fantastic.  Tonight I will bread some Chicken Breasts with a mixture of panko, parmesan, lemon zest, garlic and fresh rosemary, saute them in olive oil, finished off with a squirt of fresh lemon juice which I will serve along a garlic parmesan risotto.  

All this will buy me more time to heal from my infection, will feed my husband and will bring me back to a state of calm contentment.
