I love bulgar wheat and although I had seen that episode of the Hairy Bakers, I really enjoyed it again - Midge Curry - bring it on!          Laugh     Love all the bread though.      I'm watching Gordon Ramsay in America now.

I haven't been watching the latest Gordon Ramsay series but we did see him at the Good Food Show a few years ago. This was in one of the 'theatre shows' and he was demonstrating how to make some sort of soup recipe. He poured everything into a liquidizer but when he picked it up, the bottom fell off the jug. All the soup went everywhere. Needless to say, he swore a little when it happened Chef

Your chicken soup sounds good Joanna, though I'll pass on Danuta's Tuna.  I used to be able to eat it but now I can't get past the smell of it.  Is it an age thing do you think?  I've no idea what OH will be cooking.Whistle Heart

I'll try that again!

Tuna steak any day but can't stand tinned tuna.  Like you Toffeeapple it's the smell and I've been the same way about it all my life so not an age thing I wouldn't think. 

Although I guess everyone's different. 

In fact - I can't take the smell of bananas either - makes me feel phyically nauseous, and that only kicked in when I hit puberty.  How strange!

Back on topic - undecided re tonight so far but leaning towards gently spiced home made wedges with some sort of soya mince concoction at present.  Comfort food for the cold (weather) and cold (mine)!

Inspired by a pie I had on holiday in New Zealand, I made a meat pie with cheese in it.

I had some leftover roast beef and less than one portion of slow cooker chicken in gravy. So I mixed them together, put them in a pie tin lined with pastry, grated cheese over the top, and put the pastry topping on. It was tasty, and a change from just re-heating it all as casserole.

Today I have made the mixture for a Cornish Pasty - family size.

Lovely flaky pastry encasing comfort food - that's tonight!!

Yesterday I cooked a gammon, and I will be making London Particular today, in readiness for tomorrow:

as I love the old recipes (just like the Hairy Bikers/Bakers are revisiting!)

What an excellent recipe, Brightspark! I usually just make lentil and gammon smoother soup with my leftovers. Now, if there's some way to disguise the carrots, or persuade G to eat them that would be a perfect tea. *ponders*

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


No!

But it's usually a safe option, like a sirloin steak or one of those Indian takeaway meals from Waitrose (Tesco's are pretty crummy) or some lamb chops.

BS - you do understand that I was referring to the Family Pack of birthday candles Peace PeacePeace
