Bacon grill fritters for tea-yay

What is on the menu elsewhere?-Jo- keep it simple

Well the caravan was getting in the way of a good design, so you might as well make the caravan the focal point.

I bought my mum the GH triple DVD's (recommended here) she says that I can borrow them when she finishes them.

I will be having cauliflower cheese and chicken soup and something with custard, yes I am finishing leftovers from the fridge.

We are having fish with sauce from freezer made with 2012s tomatoes, chips or rice - whatever OH prefers then pears in red wine, made by OH as it's one of his specialities. But I do most of the cooking.

03/01/2013 at 17:31

We just had burgers and chips, but the burgers in a tin with gravy!! Love them.

03/01/2013 at 17:33

That must be a local delicacy

-has anyone ever had jellied eells??

Liz-sounds very tasty


03/01/2013 at 17:36

No geoff.

03/01/2013 at 17:37

Or snails ?

03/01/2013 at 17:40

No, them neither. And don't think I want to!

03/01/2013 at 17:50

Desperate times call for desperate measure-all those slugs and snails went uneaten in the Summer

Now if we all ate a slug a day-think how lovely the gardens would be

03/01/2013 at 17:51

Yeah, you can test that theory out and tell us how it goes!

03/01/2013 at 17:55

Oh has had snails, got loads in garden

Just watched 3 prog from DVD. Made me quite sleepy not from boredom just soooo relaxing watching the beautiful gardens.

caravan not really getting in way - not there very often but do need somewhere to put it when it's here. Would love the knot garden idea.

Chicken stir fry today yum!

03/01/2013 at 17:56

So you would like me to have a slug a day -to keep the pest away

This could catch on


03/01/2013 at 17:57

Tried snails, rather like black rubber, it was the garlic and parsley butter that made them edible. I would rather leave the slugs to the birds and I'd rather leave the jellied eels to someone else.

03/01/2013 at 18:02

Where did you try them Lizzie?

03/01/2013 at 18:08

Not tried, nor ever will, snails- ugh. Prefer stamping on them!

Did kep it simple- Tomato filled pasta from feeezer with homemade, also from freezer, red pepper sauce, with chunks of feta. Started with budget tacco 'chips' with OOD salsa sauce whilst cooking. Daughter's idea not mine........

Apparently, I dismantled the tree wrong last yr- TBH I'm not sure that it was me, but someone insists it was. Anyway this made it very difficult for daughter to put up again this- oops last- yr., or so she says......

She's also parked her car in front of garage- hmm, wonder if OH coming back early? Not my problem....

Decided not to do any more cleaning until after the w/end. Nobody will notice, 'cept me, so if any chance of going into garden I'm out there. J.

Calamari -is apparently like chewing rubber -but some people love it

The kitchen is on strike

03/01/2013 at 18:14
I like Calamari, when it is battered and fresh, especially with a squeeze of lemon. It does go rubbery as it cools though. I have had octopus too, braised in red wine. It is quite meaty really.
03/01/2013 at 18:18

Jo if you ever come down the M5 would you mind calling at my house to give it a good clean?

no Geoff not party, just not sleeping very well.

03/01/2013 at 18:30

I had snails in France as I live here. The French cook some strange things such as andouillette which is an offal filled sausage yuk! but mostly the food is very good. I like calamari in batter.
