Loki was jumpy all through lunch and disappeared quickly, Tony followed.

"JARVIS, locate Loki."

"Two doors on the left, Sir."

Tony was pretty sure that was a closet and when he opened the door he found he was right. He was very familiar with full scale panic attacks and recognised Loki's staccato, ragged breathing all too well.

"Okay, Frosty," he said, placing his hands on Loki's cheeks and making the demi-god look at him, "you did good in there, now just breathe."

He had learned so much about Loki the previous night, they had connected and he wanted to help.

Avengers - Loki sweet and innocent

I managed a culinary success yesterday ...

It really wasn't hard, but it tasted fantastic.

When I was shopping on Monday, Morrisons had a mix and match 3 for £10 deal on some meats and I only needed two lots of the sausages that were on offer, so I bought a chicken as well. Now we rarely eat a roast chicken at home, so here I had a chicken in the fridge with no clue what would be best to do with it.

So I made it up :)

I took a deep roasting dish and placed the chicken in the middle. Then I mixed 100ml (approx - it was what I had left in the bottle in the fridge) white wine, a chicken stock cube and ~300ml warm water. Tipped it over the chicken, then scattered the chicken with dried rosemary and thyme and salt and pepper. Then I covered the top of the tin in foil and put in a low oven, about 125C, and left it for 5.5hrs. Then I whacked the oven up to 200C and cooked the chicken for another 0.5hr until golden brown. (I would have used the slow cooker for the long cooking, but I forgot to ask Rob to get it down from it's high perch and I was not standing on stools to get it down ;)).

Then I left the bird to rest for 20mins on a warm plate under foil and used the juices left in the roasting pan to make the gravy. Added a tablespoon of corn flour, some hot water and half a beef stock cube to up the flavour content.

I also now have lots of lovely, juicy chicken left over for a sandwich today :).
