Yeah, as soon as I get my herb garden growing (this summer, hopefully) I'll be using fresh basil, oregano, parsley, and other herbs in my gravy. Can't wait! I'll have to invest in one of those crescent-shaped knife things.

Something similar to Thai noodles:

Rice noodles - prepare according to package.

Sauce (all measurements are estimates - I just mix til it tastes right):
* one heaping tablespoon peanut butter
* 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
* 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
* splash sesame oil
* splash fish sauce (optional)
* red pepper flakes to taste
Mix the above ingredients until peanut butter is fully absorbed. Sauce should be somewhere between a liquid and a paste.

Pour sauce over noodles. Add stir fried broccoli and chicken (or whatever else you want). Add crushed peanuts if desired.

Good, quick (10 minutes tops) meal...

Gac

ok I decide to shoot out a recipe that I've put in my cookbook.. even my mate likes it and he's not a big mushroom fan like I am...

Amazingly enough this is very light and filling at the same time and very frugal on the ingredients:

2 portabella mushrooms, stems removed
1 chicken breast (skinless), minced
1 small onion, minced
1 smal clove garlic, minced finely
handful of grated motzerella cheese
4 thin slices of procuitto ham (or black forest ham, thinly sliced)
olive oil
salt
pepper
Italian seasoning blend

a couple slices of Italian bread toasted.

preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a skillet sautee in a little olive oil the onion and garlic with a little salt until slightly carmelized, remove from pan and pour a bit more olive oil in the pan. Salt and pepper the mushroom caps and place in oil gill side down, until lightly browned, (about 2 minutes), turn and sear the other side for about an minute, remove from heat and let set. In a bowl, mix together the chicken, onions, cheese, a pinch of salt, pepper, and the seasonings (I have added hot pepper powder here too, sometimes). In an ovenproof pan, place the portabellas gill side up and place 2 slices of the ham end to end over each of the caps. Place half the chicken mixture over the junction on the caps and fold over the ham. Repeat with the other cap. Bake for 15 minutes, serve warm over the bread. Serves 2 for lunch, or 4 for appitizers.

Herbs fry outside in florida, so I'm experimenting with a newly-purchased basil plant using my oven hood light since I have limited indoor lighting. So far, not dead! And, my landlady pays for any appliance light bulbs that go out!Razz

By the way, does anyone know anything about what a skillet is and how I would know if I have one or if I don't if there is anything I can use instead?

Also does anyone have a good recipe for Welsh Cakes?
