Today's experiments.

Is Jamie Oliver's Olive oil biscuits, made with a bread dough quite a lot of Olive oiland fennel seeds
I don't think they are quite right, as they are still a bit bready,and not very crisp,perhaps I didn't roll them out thinly  enough? The picture will show what I mean,but they taste interesting.  
I subsequently  put them back into the oven for a few minutes longer,and they do seem to be crisper now they are cold. More like biscuits than bread anyway.
Regret to say I have eaten three already!

As well as these biscuits,I have made a CEASAR Salad Dressing.  
Here's the recipe.
1egg boiled for 2minutes only, peeled..try doing that one hsnded,!
1traspoon of Capers rinsed
4 Anchovy fillets    Or more if you want a stronger taste.
1 teaspoon  of Dijon Mustard
1teaspoon of Worcester Sauce
The juice of 1/2 a lemon
1teaspoon of red wine vinegar
1/2teadpoon of black pepper
sunflower oil.
A little grated Parmesan 

Put all the ingerdients except for the egg and oil into a food processor and pulse. Add the egg, pulse again,and the add the oil a very little at a time until it thickens.  If it tastes too acidic,add a tiny bit of sugar and that will neutralise it.
It has made a whole medium sized pot, which hopefully will last in the fridge for a bit. 
It looks so ordinary that I haven't taken a picture.
