Cooking by Numbers

Those of you who've been concerned about the contents of my fridge - and you are legion - will be relieved to hear I've finally found a solution. No longer do I have to worry about my rather haphazard style of food shopping - faced with the usual almost giddily eclectic selection of inredients, I now simply turn to the wonderful (my italics) Cooking by Numbers. Et voilà!! OK, it doesn't specify if those apricots are hunza or not, or if the chocolate should be Valrhona, and indeed there's no mention of champagne, but when you're lacking inspiration on a Wednesday night, it fits the bill perfectly. Try it and see... I particularly liked the description of Lemon Chicken - "Chicken partners up with its old friend lemon with crazy results" though it did come with the caveat "You are missing an essential ingredient: chicken". What a bummer! In other news, I'm off to London AGAIN this weekend, though for work this time, and will be having dinner here on Friday evening. I, of course, reveal that information in the hope that I'll be "papped" either entering or leaving the restaurant. Over to you!!

(Ca alors, on dit aussi "you are legion" en anglais... je le savais pas, dis donc. C'est pour ça que je commente entre parenthèses, vu que ça n'a rien à voir avec le post, et que j'écris en gaulois, grosse feignasse que je suis !)

It's a bit biblical (c'est tout moi, ça) but yes you can say it. And your challenge, Matoo, if you accept, is to use that expression this week in one of your conference calls ;D (I loved that post, I've SO been there).

Is this some fashion of yours to go to London and finally go to a french restaurant ? where did I go wrong ? :)

lol, Mr. Brightside, it was good too. But don't worry, I do go to French restaurants in Paris too ;-) (I have to, you've seen what's in my fridge!)
