Tasty ideas and significant decisions It was really hard getting back on track after my last round of chemo – but I think I am finally there. We’re lost souls if we accept defeat, I cannot let that happen , our own misfortunes can be turned into positive energy and shared with others. It’s up to us… Today I have three food suggestions for you as a result of my renewed positive outlook. The first dish was absolutely amazing - Loch Trout , marinated in lemon zest, dill, wild fennel, sea salt and pepper. What a hit! The boiled samphire on the side was also a first and also a success. Just out of the oven is a Raspberry and Strawberry, clafoutis that you can also see above - which I can’t wait to try. For something a little more simple and quick – but equally nutritious, try savoury pancakes. I have made a fantastic discovery for sufferers. The mix in the pan below is basically a packet of Waitrose prawns with Thai herbs, diced finely. I added 1 spring onion, a little finely chopped Thai basil, a piece of romano pepper (finely chopped with skin removed) and seasoning. Add to a pancake mix and cook in butter - that’s it! The boundaries are endless regarding this dish, so many ways of doing it and very easy to eat. Lastly, for this week I want to share two important decisions with you. Firstly I’m aiming to grow vegetables. Secondly (and most significantly) I intend to be around to enjoy them. I’ve got to keep moving forward...I hope you will join me.
