I have not done much cooking recently and so I decided to put that right today.I made gnocchi from Julia Child recipes. Because there were a number of subsidiary recipes I actually moved through four by the time I got to grill the potato and cheese gnocchi under the grill. I served it with chicken breasts which I made in a parcel in the oven. I rubbed the breasts with paprika and cubed a large, peeled conference pear which I had soaked in lemon juice. I would have liked to have used some olive oil or butter, but She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Mentioned wanted the meal to be very low calorie. Anyway, it was delicious.

However, the gnocchi required rather a lot of attention to create and I did not have time to wash up as I cooked. The result was a very messy sink at the end of the meal and, unfortunately, we don’t have a dishwasher. When I wash up, I try to use it as thinking time or time to listen to a little radio. That way I don’t feel annoyed with it.

Cooking detritus

I had a very enjoyable time playing a gig at Helle’s Angels in SL last night. I think the next one will be at Terra Fyrmusica on Tuesday. Speak to you later, my dear blogophiles.
