A Marvellous Chocolate Experience

I always find salmon rather filling and as it is one of my favourite meals leftovers occur frequently, today I mashed up about 60g of leftover salmon with the remains of a packet of Boursin which was about ½ a tablespoon (isn't Boursin yummy by the way!) and a similar sized dollop of roasted garlic mayonnaise.  It worked very well, I thought it would.

Lindor Balls!

My lunchtime pudding was rather special.  This year Santa brought me a great deal of chocolate and such like (I'd been very good) including a bag of wonderful Lindor thingies.  When I went to eat some I found that being near the fire the middles had melted.  Lush!  They were difficult to unwrap due to being soft but well worth the patience because once in the mouth the chocolate shell broke open to release a gush of lovely liquid chocky goo.

I got this picture off the Lindt site; I hope they don't mind but it just about sums up how lovely an experience my lunch pudding was. I turned it upside down to more accurately portray it pouring down my throat.  I had a cup of black coffee with these for lunch and for dinner pudding ate the same thing but with a brandy.  Sadly they are all gone now.

I doubt anyone noticed but I haven't posted for a few days - this is because (talk about prolific!) I've just published another eBook.  Its only little, mind you, more an eBooklet, giving all sorts of hints and suggestions to make cooking easier or more effective. 

Furthermore this is now utterly free in all sorts formats together with a link for another free book - can't say fairer than that, can I?  

One hint I haven't included is something I read in an article entitled "Think Like a Chef" which started with the following tip  ...

"BEFORE YOU START COOKING, put on some music and pour yourself a glass of wine, fruit juice or iced tea. A relaxed, composed cook is a more efficient one."

In 30 years or more I never knew that was the correct way to start work!

Anyhoo I think I'll do another book now, I enjoy it and as I have no kids it's a great way of passing on what I have learnt and come up with in the aforementioned 30 years.. Umm - any suggestions?!
Pin It!

Ah! I have had exactly the same thing happen to me with Linder! I left mine by a radiator and by the time I'd remembered them they had become little bombs of chocolatey goodness!

Happy new year Suzy!
