Dove those are probably the same people that think good berries in autumn predict a hard winter.

Cooking potatoes

Posted: 29/10/2016 at 12:06

This sometimes happens if you put potatoes into hot water - put them in cold salted water and bring to the boil.

If that doesn't improve things, cut your potatoes into smaller chunks and steam them in a steamer or covered colander over the saucepan of boiling water.  

Hope that helps.

Enjoy the weekend DD - take advantage of the quiet to do little things just for you ((hugs)) and try not to worry 

I've got the venison cooking gently in the oven and some rough puff pastry resting in the fridge.  Later on I will combine the two 

Interestingly the venison cost about the same as the shin of beef I used for a casserole last week.

Reminds me of the conversation overheard in the hairdressers - customer was reminded to put her clock back tonight and there'd be 'shorter days' responded by saying, 'Oh, I thought there were 24 hours in every day ......... how many are there going to be now?'

And then there's the comment by our Admin Support lAssistant where I used to work 

"it'll be difficult for the police and emergency services, what with Hallowe'en and Nov 5th being so close to each other this year." ...............
