LOL - I do so love all you poeple on this forum! Peace Heart RunAway

Beautiful crayon technique, Joanna. I was going to do something similar but there was a shriek of "I'm hungry" from another quarter so I had to dash and cook supper (my job at weekends, mostly).

I am not a turkey fan Shereen, but that sounds ab fab.

It's strange, but nowadays I can almost taste a recipe or a description like yours. I guess like some people can read sheet music.

Was it as good as I imagine?

Tonight (Friday) we had an Indian takeaway from Waitrose. Friday is our special treat night.

It wasn't.


It's really tasty. We make it a lot - it's different each time depending on the cheese and veg you use, but it's reliably tasty. I like brocolli or leeks in it, and stronger hard cheeses for flavour. G likes it more with loads of onions and a mild soft cheese. I can't believe I used to buy pots of starchy "carbonara sauce" when a couple of tablespoons of ordinary cream work wonders.

If your treat night didn't work out does that mean you're allowed another one in the same week?

Being pancake day- surely they are starters, mains AND sweet? I fear they are in our house. Can't get enough pancakes....

Hope one pack of birthday candles is still adequate Ok Cheers

............ he said. Hmmph. Is that 30-15 now, D ?

Thanks TA for holding him, seems like we need to work together here ....

I have just finished reading the Da Vinci Code - sounds like D hasn't heard of the sacred feminine !!

Birthday dinner - Gorgeous pork casserole with lots of lovely vegetables, followed by a bread and butter pudding a la Emma Chef - with bananas, dates and pecans, topped with demerara sugar. Mmm.

Birthday cake was a lemon drizzle cake with lemon mascarpone filling.

Yum.

I'm cooking roast pork with apple gravy, Fiona style.  It was meant to be yesterday but had left over fish pie.

Mine was chicken with roast veg but I wasn't cooking. Hubby detected a certain frazzledness and offered to peel the potatoes and ended up cooking the lot Cheers

Just made my easy egg curry and a fairly hot pheasant one.  This should do us a couple of nights.

I've been having a google around trying to find something different to do with bulgar wheat (and enjoying a glass of home-made sloe gin Wink). So tomorrow night's tea is a bulgar wheat and bean burger based on this recipe: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/166623/spiced-r.....ar-burgers.

I'm just cooking the beans now, and watching the Hairy Bakers.
