    The remainder of last night's chicken breasts got marinaded in lemon and garlic overnight. Grilled it tonight and served it with the rest of the pasta, pesto and some sun dried tomatoes.

    Pain au Chocolat- chocolate filled croissant and the best Croissant ever- so lightweight and buttery at the same time:

    Apple Tarte Tatin - an upside down fruit pastry, made with caramelized apples and puff pastry:

    Apple Tarte Tatin can be seen in the first picture, unfortunately we didn't snap a picture of the Tarte Tatin.

    Soft boiled egg with french Baguette with Olive Oil:

    Tartelelette Framboise with Meringue topping- delicate, lightweight made of whipped egg whites and sugar, and a rich fruity filling with fresh framboise:

    Sunday dinner is lamb meatballs (mint and paprika) with sweet potato oven chips. Making up some dipping sauces: creamy sun dried tomato & mustard with somehing or other. Some feta and couscous.

    Sorry. I'll try and take pics next time.

    The sweet potato fries came out a bit charred in places but that doesn't affect the flavour, thankfully. You definitely need to toss them in oil as best you can, rather than just dribbling, to avoid that but, for obvious reasons, I'm trying to reduce the use of oil. The lean*ness of lamb made the meatballs a bit more dense and "smooth" , like swedish 'balls, than I would have liked. Going to use porridge oats rather than breadcrumbs the next time. Flavour wise though I was very happy with the mint & paprika. I often find that you can easily overdo mint and not have enough parpika. But I managed to get it just right this time. It was only about three grams of fresh leaves and two tspn of paprika. 1lb of lamb mince and 50g of breadcrumbs (made from some little italian garlic toasts). Got 12 reasonably sized meatballs out of it.

    Made the dips using 2/3 yogurt to 1/3 light mayo for both: semi sun-dried tomatoes, lemon and seasoning blitzed in the food processor. Mustard and a little honey in the other.

    Ooo! Positano is on my bucket list. I have an Italian colleague who says it's one of the most beautiful areas in the world.

    Screen Shot 2019-08-12 at 8.58.59 AM.png

    and piles of sushi at a place i hadn't tried yet. meant to take a picture of the beautiful salads and nigiri, but was too hungry at first and forgot!

    Screen Shot 2019-08-12 at 8.58.44 AM.png

    this gorgeous tree greeted me this morning as i crossed the campus on my way to work.
    it's still definitely summer, but Fall is coming! : D

    Lunch in sorrento
    This was a fantastic place rihht on the sea front in the Marina Grande part of Sorrento it's about a 15 - 20 Min walk from the main part depending on how fit / hot it is & there is a fair bit of climbing to get back up
    20190812_122044.jpg

    My all time favorite Espada ( Swordfish) just simply grilled with Oil & Garlic
    & the view wasn't half bad either

    Looks like someone needs to start a “scenic views” thread, or maybe one about photography because those are gorgeous pics.

    @Rodney-2187 is right, we need a scenic views thread!

    ... @NinjaRen haven't had the luxury of going on a vacation, but the trip to this french boulangerie on Saturday and taking a Cantina/ Social Media detox for a whole weekend really helped to recharge our batteries. We're thinking about doing this more often : D

    @Maximus unfortunately anything chocolates melts in about a minute so it would just be a photo of a chocolate puddle :p
