Pork Souvlaki, my own recipe this time

I bought pork chops this time and cut them into bite size pieces for Souvlaki.  


2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice
2 garlic cloves crushed and diced
1 tablespoon of fresh oregano.
1/2 tsp salt

The meat soaked for a few hours which was enough to take up plenty of flavour. 

Saffron Rice

1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil
pinch saffron (6-10 stamens)

My saffron rice has always been disappointing, till now. It's the acid in the lemon juice that brings out the flavour in the saffron. This batch was absolutely delicious. The meat was done on the BBQ and turned out great. Fern said it was better than Mitchell's pork souvlaki but I'm not convinced of that, but it sure was good!

Apple Caesar Salad

1 egg yolk
1/3 cup olive/canola oil
1/2 tsp salt
few drops Worcestershire Sauce
few drops fish sauce
1 clove garlic, crushed and chopped
black pepper
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1 apple, thinly sliced

See previous posts on how to make Caesar dressing. This version is really good with the apple.

It's been a while since every component in a meal tasted great on it's own, but I did it with this meal! It took me a bit over an hour to put this on the table.
