Why can’t I Remember This?

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]Occitantapenada [tapeˈnadɔ]) is a Provençal[1] dish consisting of puréed or finely chopped olivescapersanchovies and olive oil[2]. 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.


A Little Harvest and Eats

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.
