Good grief Tiger; are you running a 5 star restaurant? The presentation is impeccable


I made James Martin's butternut squash and lime soup - BBC Food website - and it was very good even though I used a blue skinned squash as I'm saving my last butternut for roasting.

My mail order kashmiri and chipotle chillies arrived today so I'll be cooking with those this weekend but not with anything from garden harvests.


Still reworking leftovers from family fest last Sunday. Lamb and veg hash tonight...


just had a large bowl Danial O Donnell Soup ( thick country vegetable ) on this cold and damp day it was just right .




I had fish fingers ,mash peas and tartare sauce

Roast rib of beef for lunch. Yorksire puddings. Roast potatoes. Veg, nice thick gravy. Not sure about pud though. May make chocolate muffins. I will cook. Don't mind. They can clear up etc

Dankesckoen SwissSue. If you want, I can post many recipes- think have more than 300 in my old book. Everybody a nice week!

@Sue H, I like your food, but can you show me your body?, I mean your figure...(it's a joke).

I have just put carrots, onions, parsnip, Swede, lentils, stock, some jelly stuff that came from chicken and set in the fridge, two stock cubes and lots of coriander all in the slow cooker. I will put it in the blender and serve with some nice bread.
I am no domestic goddess !

@Lyn, sorry, but can you tell me please what is Swede, lentils, stock?


Hallo ThaiGer

swede = Steckrübe, lentils = Linsen, stock = Fleisch-/Gemüsebrühe



Thanks, SwissSue. This night I eat only a soup - not hungry - 12pm: 32degree! Coconut soup with chicken. Not so heavy, but tasty: 2 cups coconut milk, 1 cup chicken stock, 2-3 medium pieces fresh galangal, peeled and sliced, 3 chicken breast fillets(cut into well pieces), 2 teaspoons chilies, finely chopped,1tablespoon fish sauce, 1 teaspoon brown sugar, 1/2 cup fresh coriander leaves, 5 coriander leaves for garnish. Add coconut milk, chicken stock and galangal in a pan. Bring to boil and simmer over low heat for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chicken pieces and chilli to pan, simmer for another 6 minutes.Continue stirring until cooked and all ingredients mixed well. Season with fish sauce and sugar. Add coriander leaves Before serving, garnished with remaining coriander leaves.





Tiger, is galangal ginger?


NOOOOO! Never use ginger instead of galgant! Is NOT approximate(?) a galgant/galgal-tast. Look GALANGAL and GINGER.

Ginger you can eat, but not galgal(only for spicy tast) , it's very hot spicy in your mouth. Try to chewing galgal is okay but no eat 


Have just looked on Wikipedia and found that it is a member of the ginger family, but much stronger!

Could do with 30 degrees. Just for a while. Better than -4.
