Cooking on sunday

4h30 pm Cooking now.

Sunday is Gormandize&Feast day with big meal. Eat what you can! Why not? Only JamesBond lives twice.

Grilled salmon with herb butter and dill. Creamed vegetables and rice. And tsatsiki. A bottle of white wine from Hungary, Muscat Ottonel from the Danube region.

Maybe finishing up with a cigar. Iwish every day would be sunday.
