No Rest

Four o'clock in the morning and still we cannot sleep
Turning over turning round, twisting in our sweat
They say there is no rest for the wicked ones
Dear God what have we done?
There is no rest for the wicked ones
Dear God what is this evil that we've done?
Is it that we wanted more than you gave?
Why did you put us then in this smalltown grave?
Humility - is that what you want?
Why did you make us then the way you did?
Yes we have pride - is this our sin?
Is it the times that we've been out fighting?
Well I'll tell you all those times - we never really hurt anybody
Or is it that we were eating
While other people were starving?
Is this our crime?
Is it the times we laughed about it all
Through all those whisky nights so far away?
Yes, we betrayed you - is this our crime?

Fast Food, Gordon Ramsay


Gordon Ramsay Fast Food, Pasta two dishes tried. Great results as you would expect. Very quick very simple. Superb for anyone who has a pasta mountain.  The second dish had garlic anchovies parsley pasta, that’s it  That’s pretty simple, very nice though.  The dish pictured ‘Linguine with tomatoes,Olives and Capers’, had more to it, but still very easy and quick. Extremely tasty! I recommend good pasta, there are some reasonably priced quality dried pastas now in the supermarket. Germany has some amazing offers, for good pasta. Also done from the same book was Sticky Lemon Chicken with Champ and peas, seriously good! Again free range chicken, it doesn’t need to be expensive French, but it does need to be free range. Good potatoes are a must! All these dishes are pretty cheap to make. Ingredients/technique posted when I have time.

More Salad?


Definitely on the menu, we have more salad. We also have more fish.

Pictured is an Asian noodle salad with a roasted duck leg. Check out the wilted pak choi which goes nice on salad. Crisp noodles add texture/crunch to this salad. Five spice cherry sauce with the duck leg. Salad dressings are endless, coconut/lime? Honey Lime Ginger? Tamarind is a great dressing ingredient. Apple and Coriander like each other in a salad. Keep leaves dry if you want the dressing to stick to them.
