Two dinners

DD hates seafood, everything from the sight of it to the smell of it to the whole idea of it. I love seafood, and because I know how much he hates the smell/sight of it I don't have it very often. When Mum came down for Christmas it was great because she loves seafood too, and with two of us wanting to eat it, DD was willing to put up with it.

So, one day, Mum and I stopped at a fish and chip shop that also sells a great selection of fresh seafood and bought some lovely king prawns. We marinated them in some olive oil, garlic, chilli and parsley and had them for dinner with a beautiful salad of snow pea sprouts, baby spinach leaves, vine ripened cherry tomatoes, avocado and danish feta and a roasted garlic vinaigrette. It was the perfect, light summer dinner.

However, this would not do for DD. We bought him a nice fat chicken breast fillet, opened it up, stuffed it with some sliced ham, red onion and feta and then rolled it up and baked it in the oven. He had it with chips and loved every bite. Mum and I thought ours was better though.

The chicken wasn't actually pink. It was a combination of an unfortunate shadow and pink ham!!!
