  1. From Lidl, on a hot day in the garden, this did me proud and only 89Pence:
  2. DianaB You have really pushed the boat out.
  3. DianaB, that's The Magpie buggered then, as for Bettys, who needs their fat rascals anyway. thanks for the information.
  4. If ever you are in Whitby you are in luck for several fish and chip places, also local kippers: Whitby is a wonderful place to visit just on its merits, on the sea and locally caught fish. http://www.magpiecafe.co.uk The Magpie Cafe is where I would head for.
  5. It is the Saurkraut season for me: This may amuse you: Sauerkraut, four large hard white cabbage, salt and seasoning. cutting the first quarter piece I neglected to use the protector and sliced into my index finger through the nail and out the other side. it has just stopped throbbing. who’d a thunk you could get 4 cabbage in there, but you have to pound them. the color of the slicer is rather overpowering but it was £4 cheaper than the more sensible colours (from Germany, as was the pot.) i will try it in about a month (do not tell Wendy) note the blood on the pounder. I did have four apples to peel and cut into small pieces (one for each cabbage,) but as i cut a finger tip into small pieces the fun went out of that idea.
  6. Who said M&S Gold tea, it is my choice as well, drunk black with no sugar. Now here is the thing, new advice is to brew the loose tea for 3 minutes stir with a spoon then let it rest for two more minutes, in this way you will not be drinking boiling hot tea and will appreciate it's subtleties.
  7. When I worked (now retired) for years on shifts in a secret spy base I took a pint jar with veggie soup in it maybe some rice , pretty much anything then, put it in the microwave and enjoyed it. Others spent a fortune in the canteen. if I had known about Carrottes Rapees then, I would have taken that:

  10. The game 'Pelota' springs to mind. (google if you like)

    The Egg Sandwich

    The Egg Banjo: This is a British military item, usually cooked in the back of your tank by your driver. two slices of very pale sliced bread margarine a lightly fried egg. the signature mark of this dish are the oily fingermarks left by the cook as he passes it accross the breach of your gun. having lightly squeezed this on passing , as you ate you wold sort of 'strum' so as to stop the yolk going on your sweater (hence Egg Banjo) It's true i tell ya

    An Overload of Eggs

    Deleated as now i know L dont like pickled eggs.
  14. My saurkraut has been blipping away now for 6 week. taking a good part, putting it in a container and then in the refrigerator i will use it as a salad, keeping it's probiotic thing viable. The rest of the Kraut jar is in my garage keeping cool and ready. Also: Having just finished a large jar of pickled red cabbage an idea came to me. Hard boiling four eggs cooling them and shelling them i popped them in to the deep red vinegar mixture, it has herbs in it and i added a very strong dried chilli. Minimum time to completion 2 days but longer if you want more fun:
  15. I give you all a 'Like' i get good ideas from your posts as well. This meal is Lamb's liver good to eat and full of everything, Bavarian noodles and stuff.
