New topic to make it easier to load. I had the last of the Colcanan I made two days ago. It lasted so long because I bought some small Cox's that were never going to tipen so, waste not want not, I pelled them, stewed them down a bit and after draining them popped them in with the colcanan. Bit more seasoning and it was nice....

I was only charged for the X-ray, Stanley.
I managed to get through the weekend without having to resort to Casualty. I looked on the website and two things jumped out at me....one was I needed to be a pensioner or health care card holder to be seen there (neither of which applies to me), the other was it quite clearly stated that treatment would be given by students under supervision. No thanks! Not after what I have endured!
I was promised (faithfully) that I would be contacted by the dental clinic this morning once the original dentist to whom I had been assigned (before being offloaded) had arrived and could find a slot for me.
Well....I waited until 2pm and then rang them.
I don't think they were happy to hear from me. I got the distinct impression they had hoped I had been dealt with at Casualty over the weekend and they were off the hook. (there was a lot of humming and hahing at the other end of the phone! I felt terribly unloved and neglected....how can they just hope that a woman with a tooth hanging out of her head might conveniently disappear?!)
Reluctantly, they have made an appointment for me tomorrow afternoon.

So....just have to work on the nerves now....and all will be fine.


get your people to phone my people and we will do lunch...MAZ Go to Top of Page

If ir was me, once I had got the problem solved I would go for their throats. They have not treated you well. It's shameful (and painful!). If they had any shame they would treat you free.

Black pudding and beans last night.

Treat tonight. I've sliced a Dexter sirloin to make two thin steaks. Marinade in Lea and Perrins, in the grill now and two butties for tea.

Did i tell you that I went away a fortnight ago , leaving hubby and youngest (17) to fend for themselves for 5 days? When I got back the washing machine, kettle, and phone were broken, the pc had a virus on it, and the house keys had been lost!
Phone and pc have yet to be sorted, but house keys found, kettle glued and new washing machine installed! This morning the fridge freezer is broken..not sure how we will replace that as funds have just  gone on the washer, but what I am leading to is I hate waste. So in the fridge was 3 peppers, a lettuce, toms, celery, a few mushrooms, half a swede, leeks, open packet of salami and a large pack of cheese. In the freezer was  half a bag of frozen chips, a portion of oven chips and 5 packs of bacon ( I regret this purchase! it was on offer last week at asda, they charged me full price instead of offer price and now it needs using up!)
So tonights tea will be Pea and ham soup, followed by vegetable cheese bake,  and salad with a pizza thrown in the oven on the side for tommorrows packed lunches, that should use up most of what is going warm in the kitchen...then it's bacon sarnies at every opportunity! PS I am eating the oven chips for lunch! (with bacon!)

I take it you put them on jankers? It must be winter, broth bits back at Chaudrey's greengrocers in the square. Guess what I'm having for tea...

Self praise is no recommendation but the stew I made yesterday with beef trimmings is beautiful. Best I have ever done. Pity I just throw things in .....

Rest of chicken pie tonight.  I have an oxtail simmering in the slow cooker with veg, garlic, herbs and red wine for tomorrow.  I will let it go cold and then skim any excess fat off before re-heating.

Snap Moh, I got some oxtail this morning to put in me next Dexter stew. Stuart included all the trimmings in my last consignment. I just cook them in the pressure cooker with salt and pepper, pour off the liquor into a bowl, pop it in the fridge and take the fat off for the deep fat fryer. I use fat out of the fryer for my bread, so none of it is wasted and the stew isn't too fatty.

Oxtail certainly improves a stew doesn't it Moh. Did you see the waste programme where oxtail was going to waste because people won't buy cheap cuts in the area where they were being produced?

No I did not, but with the slow cooker cheaper cuts are best.  They need longer cooking but have much more flavour.  Roast beef, yorkshires, roast parsnips,  carrots, roast potatoes, mash and gravy or I may do cauliflower cheese in place of the carrots.

"people won't buy cheap cuts "
Problem is that Ox tail isn't a cheap cut - not here anyway.  When you consider how long it takes to cook, and what the meat to bone ratio is, it's quite expensive.
