Bird spotting

Hoopoe bird in the garden, wikipedia has a good description of this species here.

We are trying to plant tomatoes between each downpour of rain, terrible winds too. Chilli plants are ready to plant too. The only problem is that we are underwater most of the time and blown away into interglactia by the wind.

Poulet á l'estragon

Having plenty of young tarragon in the herb garden and some chicken I decided to cook tarragon chicken but I was unable to find the traditional recipe in any of my cookbooks except something really complicated in Larousse Gastronomique. So I improvised this:

- Fry some chicken thighs and drumsticks in a little olive oil
- add two chopped tomatoes, honey, lime juice and a little white wine stock
- cover on a low heat until chicken pieces are cooked through
- add some coconut milk and a large bunch of chopped tarragon
- serve with saffron rice
