OK, here are over 60 recipes for those moments when you are desperate, friends having dropped in for a drink etc. & your brain has deserted you.  smile

You mean it's NOT acceptable to pretend you are not in?

Lie on the floor and turn out the lights.

Works every time (they would never believe it!)

Best appetizer? A bottle of Hine or some such cheers

Never knowingly underfed

Hi Jan, I am over it now…..I had to dispatch two cockerels, they were getting far too noisy. I hate doing it although I see it as my duty. If they were keeping me awake they were doing the same for my neighbours.

Thanks for asking!  wave 

At least there will be lots of good chicken soup !!

Well obviously we are chicken less at the mo, but its still something I aim to learn to do when we get more in the spring. Glad you're over it though.
Back on topic before I get spooked...erm smoked salmon on little squares of toast anyone?

Some of the canapés I'll be making on Christmas day

 

smoked duck breast slices

smoked salmon
thinly sliced smoked egg on ritz biscuits with caviar
parmesan crisps
devilled prawns on melba toast

We'll be finishing off with cheese and biscuits with smoked cheddar, so in a way you are already joining me. ok
