What's for tea?

Spicey beefy Minestrone soup with cheese on toast tonight, Victoria Sponge for afters, although substitute sponge for biscuit as the other half's first attempt at one wasn't the greatest success.

Pie and mash with onion gravy tonight, the dark weather is making me want comfort food.

Last night we had cold pulled pork and salad, with lemon drizzle cake for afters.

Cottage pie with carrots, peas and cabbage.

Bjay, this is the recipe for Banana cake that I use, very easy and always comes out well.

Afternoon ladies and gents, loved all the recycling ideas. Which reminded me, last time I was on freecycle someone local had offered to give away vegetarian dog food because their dog didn't like it.

You do get people offering the most odd things, a single pair of Betty Boop socks was listed once, they would have looked very snazzy with your new laces Geoff 

A Vetch Maybe ?

I too think it's a very pretty plant, it is a very good self seeder though so I don't think you will have too much trouble with growing it next year, as new plants should pop back up themselves. It arrived in my mother in laws garden this year having fallen out of the bird feed mix she was buying.

This is supposed to be a light hearted thread for everyone to talk about whatever they like food related. The internet doesn't need to be taken so seriously, we're all friends here after all. 

Yesterday I had a lovely (tesco) chicken breast cooked with thyme from the garden and (tesco) lardons cooked with plenty of black pepper, leeks spinach and peas sweated off together and a kind of potato bake with cheese.

Tonight will be something quick from the freezer, it might be an egg beans and waffles day or a baked spud with beans and cheese. I'll see what I fancy later.

Frank, I cooked your Leek and Potato soup recipe this week, it was lovely and fed four of us as a main meal for two nights and cost about £7 with some nice bread. Although because I did it as a main I was a little naughty and added cream and cheddar just after blending. Thanks for the inspiration.

I'm really tempted to get one of those compost bins from the link suggested, we use a black plastic bin at home but that's normally full by late Spring so could do with some extra space.

Becks well done with the strawbs, I didn't know they were easy from seeds. You'll have plants for years if you take off the runners next year too.

Have been to the allotment today and both me and OH have been bitten by horsefly, has anyone tried that Avon cream I often see recommended?

Has anyone received their November 2012 issue yet?

Thanks Lizzie, I'll follow your advice. 

pets and why they are called what they are called

We have three cats as well, all about 2 years old and from the same litter although one came to us about a year later than the others as it was decided that a cat living in a flat wasn't a good idea. 

The two girls are called Cleo and Dora, Cleo because she wants to be at the centre of everything and is a typical queeny cat, Dora because when we first got her she wanted to explore everywhere. The third cat is a chap and came already with a name, Buster, he's a big brute and is incredibly clumsy but the most gentle of them all.

We have tropical fish too but far too many to name, and they all look too similar.
