It's not too bad thanks, but  when this denture moves ( as in eating) it is really sore as it has not embedded itself properly.  Feel a bit like Dracula.  Big_Laugh  So I will be eating baby food again tonight.  I truly feel some anaesthetic would help don't you?  Sloe_Gin  Purely medicinal of course.    Medicine

Danuta, do not hold back on the anaesthetic (thank goodness for the spell checker!). Take it from me - it works!

Bingo, Joanna. F made a delicious sausage and bean casserole on Thursday, and added some of our own bottled tomatoes from last year. It was absolutely delicious. We had the remainder this evening with baked potatoes and purple sprouting broccoli from our garden. Yum. Ok

Hamburgers tonight with basil and apple flavouring on homemade bread (confess to using a packet as I can't get wholemeal flours here in Latvia apart from rye flour), last years apple and cucumber chutney and a slice of tomato. After we got back from a church meeting we had raspberry sponge for pudding (translation dessert).

I have to laugh at myself because, working in IT as I do, "invalid food" at first reads like "invalid data". Why don't you Brits up the ante on our N. American cousins and officially change the spelling for an unwell person to "invaleed".

That would learn em Frown

I'm not cooking tonight as it's my monthly dvd, bottle of wine and pizza catch up with a friend but this weekend I shall be cooking nettles in some format.   Found this interesting sounding recipe which sounds big on flavours but nicely simple so may give that a whirl.  Chef
