I came home early today. I’ve got ManFlu. I went to bed last night feeling a little under the weather. I’d had a poor sleep the night before and I wasn’t sure if I had an infection or if I was just over tired.
I woke up this morning with a headache and while at work developed a sore throat, rhinorrhoea, and a cough. Now I feel febrile.
Came home and didn’t feel much like cooking so I removed the bones from a chicken thigh and drumstick and put them into a baking tray. To that I added a piece of cauliflower plus some cherry tomatoes. I seasoned everything with iodised salt and black peppercorns which I’d ground in a mortar with a pestle.
Last week I learnt that if I put some baby green peas in a baking tray and put a piece of deboned chicken thigh on top I end up with some peas which remain green and soft and some peas which go brown and crunchy.
I had a busy and longish day. I knew on coming home I’d be working into the evening, and I just didn’t feel like cooking so I went to Jamison Takeaway on the way home.
Normally I have very good experiences with Jamison Takeaway but tonight I was disappointed. I mean, I was happy with the potato scallops and seafood salad. There were as I expected. What I found disappointing was that I asked for a thigh quarter and the person behind the counter ignored my request and gave me a breast. I hate breasts. I really do. I love thighs. Give me thighs over breasts any day.
