Perhaps it is Senior Syndrome catching up with me, but I can’t figure out why I can’t remember to try this:
Tapenade (French pronunciation: [tapənad], Occitan: tapenada [tapeˈnadɔ]) is a Provençal dish consisting of puréed or finely chopped olives, capers, anchovies and olive oil. Its name comes from the Provençal word for capers, tapenas (pronounced [taˈpenɔs]). It is a popular food in the south of France, where it is generally eaten as an hors d’œuvre, spread on bread. Sometimes it is also used to stuff fillets for a main course.
I will try to remember to try it tomorrow. It would be a nice lunch/snack. I even cleaned my mortar and pestle earlier today in anticipation.
I’m getting old.

I don’t know which pic is better, so I will let Roberto decide:
It’s free range chicken from Kroger’s, seared over the stove top in a pan that can do both that and go into the oven.
After I took the chicken out, I added fennel picked from the garden this morning, garlic, and a sliced yellow onion.
I added tomatoes and olives and then put the chicken on top and put it all in the oven for 20 minutes. Then I made couscous with low sodium chicken broth.
The above is the result.
I also picked a number of carrots, which will make a nice lunch for tomorrow. I’l freeze what I don’t eat.
BTW, the crappy freezer my mom and sis gave me died again. It can’t even keep ice cubes. If I had all of the food back that I lost because that freezer still had it’s light on like it was working . . . I could have probably bought an American made freezer.
