Moh, Ann gave the soup 10/10! Pauline, all good stuff and as my dad used to say, it'll put a skin on your back like velvet!

Not strictly eating but definitely consumption. As many of you know I like my tot of whisky first thing in the morning but don't always have it. I went for the bottle of Lagavulin on the worktop and realised I had finished it a few days ago, A bottle lasts me about 9 months. So I went to the Vatican Cellar and grabbed the first bottle which is 'As We Get It' single cask Islay Malt, 101 proof. I came across it years ago, it is bottled by a wholesale grocer who supplied the fishing fleets and is a superb but very rare whisky. Doc and I got this at Skipton near High Mill if you want to go and have a furtle. Very cheap as well at £37 because you only need a wee sensation!

Did a complete turn round last night and had roast chicken and chips. Decided the steak pudding would do midweek. Roast pork with the crackling on, apple sauce, stuffing, roast and mash potatoes, brussel sprouts and carrots tonight.

I should think so after that car journey in the snow. Best central heating there is! Remember the little lad in the Ready-Brek advert?

I thought I'd seen you report a dodgy car journey. Stocked up on milk yesterday and started a five day beef stew. A woman stopped me in Church Street and tried to sell me wellie socks for my cold feet. I told her they were warm as toast because I was full of good grub. I don't think she understood me at all.

Sorry Bluey, but you've had enough leeway. This is clearly advertising. Have a look at the site rules.  Stanley.

(Any further transparent posts like this will simply be deleted. Please don't make me do that, it's boring and a waste of time.)

Stewart has just delivered. Freezer is full and I've bought the whole sheep I'll get the rest in in about a fortnight. Its a three shear so you can call it mutton and has an interesting history. It and its mates have been grazing the churchyard in Trawden for the last four years. Stewart can't remember the name of the breed but they are an old-fashioned sheep and as long as they start nibbling as lambs, they can stand eating Yew which would poison most animals, including us. So, not sure whether the purists would call it local but a good provenance! Yew fed mutton! Beat that! By the way, the price was right, cheap meat.

Your mutton should be cheap SCG, after all it's cost nothing to rear.  It should be good though as it's feed will have been rich in nutrients from the graveyard.  Properly cooked mutton is a very underrated meat which is beginning to find it's way onto restaurant menus again although I actually prefer hogget to mutton or lamb.

As far as beating that's concerned I don't think you can beat the flavour, value or indeed provenance of food that you reared or grew yourself.  British Saddleback chops for us tonight.
