Someone analysed the powdered, pre-made mix used to spice and batter Kentucky Fried Chicken (back in the '80s using gas spectrometry IIRC) to determine the secret recipe of "11 herbs and spices".

The test results indicated the presence of flour, salt, pepper, and MSG. That's it. (The real secret to KFC is their patented pressure cooking system.) No doubt, Harlan Sanders original recipe did contain 11 common herbs and spices that he would famously use to make stove top fried chicken in other folks' kitchens impromptu. He was not a fan of what became of his restaurant chain after selling it once comparing their instant mash potatoes to "wallpaper paste".

That sounds about right for KFC chicken! smiley - yuk - I used to make a spice blend for my own spicey KFC style chicken, and found that, basically, almost any combination of spices, as long as there was paprika, made something better than the KFC up the road from mesmiley - laughsmiley - ill

Been doing a lot of marinating chicken strips in lemon juice, oil, and various spices recently... cooking up a big batch means theres always something in for a quick lunch, that isn't a calory rich nutrition low sandwich smiley - wah - though we've just finished a batch of beef meatballs I made, so time to do another batch of something, probably more chicken this time, maybe with the lebonese 7 spice, as last time I did sumac chicken smiley - zen

Tonight is lentil soup, with bacon bits smiley - flyingpig

and, asides cooking, I've been to the gym... so far this year smiley - laugh

Rosa Baggins, (see LOTR appendix Hobbits Family trees for more information)

I am not a big chicken fan but I have been told chicken soup is very good if you have a cold but it is quite complicated to make from scratch as chicken livers are also in the recipe.

Thought about getting chicken sausages but changed my mind. Everything I have now, needs to be very spicy and full of garlic.

It's quite easy to buy smiley - chick liver here. Usually frozen, though. But you may just as well cook a very decent smiley - chick soup without liver. Just leave it out. I would, as I should avoid eating organs such as liver and kidney anyway as I am prone to gout smiley - groan

I'm going to test a new cut of meat I have never encountered before. It's called Beef Bavette and is described as beef diaphragm.

I think the description makes it sound less delicate but a good friend has tried it and praises it in high notes.

The Beef Bavette turned out to be excellent for stewing. I tried a recipe which included half a bottle of red wine, chopped onions, garlic and fresh Thyme and it was very good with mashed potatoes smiley - drool

We have been locked down for a week or so now and as of Saturday noon the whole country has been sealed off. Luckily my favourite watering hole is still open and the usual handful of regulars turn up late in the morning every day for a chat and a few beers before going home to lunch.

They're specifically shuttering bars and dine-in restaurants here in several locations including Harris County (Houston), Texas. I'm just outside Harris County in Galveston County, but I wouldn't be surprised if they do likewise here. I was also planning on going to a Renaissance faire in two weeks, but that's looking doubtful now as well. That will be during what will likely be the peak or nearing it of this pandemic here in the States.

It's interesting to follow the different approaches countries have chosen. One of our experts says he won't be surprised if South Korea turns out to have chosen a better way than Denmark's but it is way too early to compare. And it's too late to change horses now. We'll just have to wait and see.

With your heart issue, I'm confident that you are.
That said, considering how you've defied all medical logic over the last several years, who knows.
