This is turning into a food blog. Thanks for all the comments and I have been getting a lot more views every day. I suppose we have all got to eat haven't we? The usual early morning conversation in our house is:
"What do you want for your tea?"
We some times go to the Chinese Restaurant and Take Away in Bantry. We never eat in and I usually order Beef in Black Bean sauce. The missus will order her: Chips and Curry sauce. The lads usually order Chicken Skewers with Rice. Our house is full of cook books and we are always scouring the T'web and T'internet for new recipes to try. So yesterday we had a go at making chicken skewers. They only cost 10 Euros to make and they went down really well. Here's how you make them:
Get 4 chicken breasts (one for each person) and we cut them into one inch chunks and we covered them in honey and pushed them onto skewers. Then they where placed in the cooker (range) and cooked for about half an hour, turning once until the juices run clear. Serve with rice or chips.
We enjoyed them. Let me know if you like them.
On Saturday. The local supermarket and off licence in town had run out of Newcastle Brown on Saturday. I have been able to get this wonderful English beverage since 2012. So I searched through the shelves of stout, lager and bitters... When I set my eyes on my old friend: Super Bock.
If you have ever been to Portugal. You will have seen this beer for sale. I think it was two Euros fifty a pint (big glass) when we last went to the Algarve. I hope to go there next year. This time we will probably explore the Silver Coast and higher up. Places like Lisbon, Porto and the Douro wine region...
I chilled the beers in the fridge. They brought sunny Portugal all back to me. Cheers! Where are you going next year on your holidays?
