Well done! WellDone 

I started a thread to welcome you under the 'On the Sunlounger' section of the forum; do, please, let us know a little more about you, there.

I'll try that again!

Gammon, served hot with potatoes, onions and carrots in a thick gravy, accompanied by pease pudding, alongside cauliflower and broccoli.

We went traditional tonight and had roast chicken, roast spuds and veg. The only "fancy" thing I did was to crumble a little leftover black pudding through the leeks as an experiment. Everything got the thumbs up from G.

I've made sandwiches for tomorrow's lunch and we're trying to decide between pie, risotto or chicken & spuds the remake for tomorrow's dinner 🙂

We had rabbit casserole from the slow cooker. Really nice, and F took time to reduce the sauce/jus and adjust the slightly acidic flavour using good old dairy fat.

It was very good indeed, served with creamed potatoes and frozen peas. I have to admit that I prefer the version where you add some other pieces of wild game, like venison and pheasant, but no complaints.

All the rabbit came from the CFC and was stored in the freezer until we had enough.

Tried a new recipe today - a ginger cake, then filled it with a ginger-syrup flavoured butter cream.

Will let you know tomorrow when I've tried it ........

I am trying out new recipes that suggest they can be frozen, because I need to cook loads of cakes for the Rotary charity cake stall in July, and if anyone has some ideas for me, I'd be grateful.

Ooooo - black pudding with cabbage!  Lovely.  Pigeon, gorgeous!  Quince paste?  I have some too!  Isn't it smashing?


I cooked today.Eeek    Took ages to prepare but that 's because I can't stand for long.  It was chicken and vegetables cooked slowly with stock.  It was fine. Not great, but then...Whistle
