"The Law of Value"

"Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment"
Again from the same book I quoted yesterday.
Anywho, back to food.
Check this out;

In the small print it says; infused with chili and bell pepper.
I found this little treasure at a market in town.
You can use it as a marinade or just as a drizzle on grilled veggies or salad dressing etc etc.
I used it to marinate some chicken thighs. Simple marinade was; lemon juice,onion, garlic and the oil. Grilled, it came out very very good. Spinach salad with 2 teaspoons of the oil and 1 teaspoons of balsamic. This was my meal for "break-fast" around 1:00 pm. Half a square of chocolate for dessert. Do any of you ever infuse your own olive oil? It's easy to do. I use small glass bottles (I find good ones at good will or antique markets) with corks. Wash them well, put in your olive oil and put in your herbs. I really like a chive olive oil and of course garlic oil.

Here's a picture of a very handsome Mr. Jones I thought I'd share with you.

The salad looks lovely, if I ever see avocado oil I'll have to give it a try. Mr. Jones is quite handsome, thanks for taking a pic for us. =)

Thanks Marc, I appreciate the compliment. I don't know if I'd go so far as "unbelievable", especially when it comes to my blog pics. Those are probably the worst pics I take, haha. If you click the flickr link on my link list you can see some better stuff.

Really though, you're the inspiration for it. I already took loads of pictures, but it was this blog that made me want to take pictures of my food. =)

Btw, I added you to my link list, too. Hope that's ok!
