Morning All

My goodness Dove sounds like she did you proud with her meals when you ate there then.
Your Son did well having two good cooks in his life

Hmmm yes, she was great to start with ....................

Morning Clari   Hope you're feeling better

Ex DIL was Russian - she cooked a good Borscht, (beetroot soup with beef and veg in it - hot not cold), Plov (like a baked lamb pilaff with crispy bits), Pirog, a fantastic meat pie with pastry top and bottom  (you had to have two helpings, one with the top crust and one with the bottom, otherwise it was bad luck), salted dried herring, Russian salad (much much nicer than the tinned one we used to have in the UK) and lots of lovely pelmeni http://pelmeni.co.uk/.  She used to make lots and keep them in the freezer and then take them out and cook them in stock as needed. Piroshki - like little cornish pasties but deep fried. Delicious

Oh, and of course blini (little buckwheat pancakes) with salmon 'caviar' with Smetana (soured cream)

Hi Pat

I've been meaning to say, we've not been able to access that tv programme you sent us - son says it's because it was from Australian tv and ours is a different system.  My techie son in law is visiting at the weekend ... I'll ask him

I know Ufford  - I went to school at Framlingham, brother and all his family live around Woodbridge and my son lives near Aldeburgh   I used to live in one of those iced houses.  It's the driest part of the country too

Quite bright here at the moment, but some big dark clouds hovering around up there too.  Down to 4.8C overnight. Currently 5.5C.

Lyn, that's what you've all been paying your Council Tax, Income Tax and National Insurance contributions for all these years - to pay for the help when you need it. 

Nothing to do with the claiming culture.  It's just as much your entitlement as your State Pension - you claim that surely? 

If you listen to the Archers ....
