Home for Lunch

I only work half day, well perhaps I should say I only get paid to work for half the day - the rest of the day's duties, are all done free. I am not complaining, both my paid and unpaid "jobs" involve things I love.

One of the really great things about coming home early is I sometimes get to spoil myself with a wonderful lunch, like this Moroccan Roasted Chicken with Deep Fried Camembert.

The chicken was prepared at the Cooksplayground on Monday with Jenny. This chicken was smothered with a combination of Moroccan spices, preserved lemon and fresh coriander and then roasted, but you can use any left over cold chicken.

Deep frying camerbert is really easy. Slice a round of Camembert into eight, dip the pieces into beaten egg and then roll in breadcrumbs, fry in hot oil, turning until golden on all sides.

To assemble the salad, place the sliced chicken and fried Camembert cheese on a bed of rocket and dress with your favourite dressing, which for me is Verlaque Fruit infused White Balsamic Reduction.

This looks wonderful! Much nicer than the cereal I had for lunch. Also, I'm getting realy jealous about all this Verlaque doing the rounds. How about all of us who don't have access to Woolies? Not fair.

Wow - that looks really delish!!! Your 'new' kitchen must be such a pleasure to be in.
Nice to see you again - I've been flying under the radar in all the blogging spots :)
Enjoy the rest of the week,

Very envious of your being able to visit the Cook's Playground... harrumph! This looks fab - there is definitely a melty cheese theme going on in the SA blogosphere this month!!

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
