Food and photos


Foodery post!

Cat knows you’re all excited by this.

I made this awesome chicken dish last night, so for posterity and in case anyone wants to try, I shall try and remember the random amounts and what not.

Four chicken breasts, chopped into happy little chunks.

Half a packet of presliced green olives (cause they were on special)

3 tablespoons capers in brine

1/3 of a normal size pack of pitted prunes (maybe 1/2 a cup?), chopped

3 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

A goody hefty amount of this garlic/parmesan/origanum spice mix I have.

Bung it all together in an oven dish, then pour over about a 1/2 cup brown sugar and a 1/3 cup white wine (my half cup was a Floyd half cup, so uh…yeah) .

In to the oven. Mine has only one heat setting (yes, it’s sad, I know) so it was on high for 30 min) .

I served with jasmine rice. Mmmmmm yum yum yum

In other news: kissedbythegods came to South Africa from Canada, and took these wonderful photos that she shared in the South Africa lj comm.

And this post from Clarkesworld, about using sites like dig and stumbleupon to promote fiction.
