I love weekends

Married life is fantastic.
This weekend, Matt and I took a little trip to Mill Bay for a change of scenery. We partied at the Wessex Inn until the wee hours and came back home the following day to celebrate Matt’s name day with a huge B.B.Q.

Chicken roulade

Finely chop 1/2 red onion and 1/2 pear and sauté in butter until caramelized.
Mix in 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar reduction(mom makes the best).
Flatten 2 chicken breasts, season with salt and pepper.
Spread 1 teaspoon of goat cheese on chicken and add half the onion mixture.
Roll the chicken breast as you would with sushi.
Tightly wrap the chicken in plastic wrap and submerge in boiling water for 15 mins.
