Dinner tonight

Posted by Lyn Buffett on October 28, 2014 at 20:11 1 Comment

Made a yummy poached chicken dish tonight,  It was chicken breast cut into big chunks poached in water and white wine.  I also had in the sauce sliced white choko, with kafir lime leaves, spring onions, parsley and salt and pepper.  I thickened the sauce with cornflower and water.  DELISH!

Sorry vegetarians :(

They have a great selection of seeds, books, etc (see online catalogue). They are based at Beechmont. I have never tried this plant for control of white butterfly - SandraSee More
