Borough Market

On Saturday morning, Chris and I headed to Borough Market. This is one of the largest and oldest markets in London and is near Chris's office. Not the easiest to get to but it was well worth it once we were there and shopping. It is gigantic and very crowded. Next time we will make sure to get there extra early to beat the tourists!
I bought fresh veggies and herbs. I also went to a butcher and bought pork chops, a whole chicken and chicken cutlets. When we were all finished shopping we headed home to... you guessed it, COOK!!!

Look at me in our tiny kitchen in my Tampa Girl apron! I really missed cooking and was happy to be back at it but I would be a liar if I didn't admit that I really missed my kitchen back in Atlanta. Oh well, I made the best of it and in the end we sat down for some delicious pork chops in a white wine mushroom sauce and sour cream and chive mashed potatoes! Yummy...

Doesn't Chris look happy? Through his clenched teeth he is saying, "Put the camera down and let me eat, woman!"
On Sunday, I roasted a chicken and made sour cream and chive potato pancakes. We had a fresh spinach and rocket salad and yummy Belgium beer!!! I put tarragon, rosemary, sage, thyme, and lemon halves in the bird before I rubbed it down with butter and stuck it in the oven. It turned out to be delicious and the left overs made a great chicken salad to go with my cheddar and chive scones for dinner last night!
On Thursday, I will be making chicken Marsala with sauteed spinach and pine nuts.
Wow... I am a regular Julia Childes! Although, tonight we are have a frozen pizza : )

Come back soon for more kitchen adventures!!!
Hugs and Kisses

Dinner looks delicious! What time should we be there? Are those flip flops on your feet in the kitchen photo? And you say it's cold there.
