last night was bolognaise..tried cheap tomato soup as an alternative to pasta sauce..chopped onion, garlic, pepper, celery, carrot, and fried untill soft, added mince and browned, added 16p tin of tom. soup, and basil, salt and pepper and hey presto..very good and as the sauces come in at over a pound and tinned toms are about 40p.. a very good saving!

We need all the savings we can find these days Belle. Got a half price bag of Cornish new potatoes yesterday, better than the Jersey Royals I reckon. Half went in the Spanish Omelette last night and the rest were cooked at the same time and will join some boiled bacon (ham end)  and peas for tea tonight.

I get cheap 4 1/2 litre bottles of tomato ketchup from Stewart.  The ingredients are Tomatoes, sugar, vinegar, modified starch, salt, onion powder and spices with a small amount of Potassium Sorbate for a preservative. Not a lot wrong with it and it makes a good addition to casseroles etc. I forget the price but it's dirt cheap.

Plain ham sandwich last night. Main reason was that I wanted to finish a less than perfect loaf. I'd put twice the amount of medium oatmeal in it. Very healthy but a bit sad! Baked another and got it right. (Love my bread machine!)

So was it all that extra fibre that got you up early this morning, Stanley?

Made the usual big pot of Chicken and Veg Soup today. Enough for two nights and possibly some for the freezer too.
And his lordship has requested dumplings, so I shall get them organised closer to the time.

Have you tried putting Rocket in other dishes yet, Belle? I made a Roast Vegetable Lasagne (yum) and threw the rest of the Rocket in as I was layering it. (I did take the time to chop any stems off first...sometimes they do leave an awful lot of stems on and while they add a crunch to the salad, they tend to detract from the Roast Vegetable Lasagne.)

I am cooking all sorts of dishes without Spuds at the moment because they are a dreadful price here and have been since before Christmas. (above 1.50 per kilo and they go rotten by the end of the week). I can get them reasonably priced at a fresh fruit and veg store that is about twenty minutes drive away (about .50 per kilo and very nice indeed) but I keep forgetting to call in there when out. All the big supermarkets are robbing folk blind with the price of potatoes and BREAD at present. Bread is a shocking price here. We only buy one loaf a week, but I feel sorry for young families. Even the cheapest, whitest, most tasteless, horrible bread is over two pound a loaf. Anything half decent is nudging the three pound per loaf price.


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

No Maz, early to bed.....

I had an experiment the other day that was very tasty if you like cheese. I spread Apricot Conserve on a thick crust (not toasted) grated some cheddar on it, made sure it was all covered and grilled it like Welsh Rarebit. Try it, nice change.

I don't know the price of bread here, I never buy it but it will be about the same. 1500g of very strong flour costs £1.65, makes three loaves so I guess the price of a 500g loaf from the breadmaker is below £1 and of course it's proper bread made with yeast.

When I went to Stewarts last week I got my usual black pudding and when I opened the bag it had had pups, three sausages! Good man Stewart! So sausage casserole last night and enough for today as well.

The pie on the right isn't overcooked, just the effect of the egg glaze. I saw some beautiful Bramley apples in Chaudrie's yesterday. Did anyone watch the TV prog on apples on BBC4 last night? Made your mouth water. The presenter went back to look at the original Bramley Apple tree and also went in search of his favourite apple from his youth. He found it was still standing, took an apple back the West Malling research station and had it genetically tested. Turned out to be a 'Kendal Codling', an 18th century variety first grown in Kendal. Fascinating programme, my mouth was watering throughout!

By the way, pastry made using nothing but double cream and SR flour. Still the best pastry ever! No sugar in the pies and apple not cooked before filling so they haven't 'fallen' as my mother used to call it.

That's an interesting tip re the pastry Stanley..no water? Salt? may translate better than normal recipes for my gluten free flour.

Home made curry last night, two chicken breasts, an onion, garlic, beetroot, squash, carrots, all sauted in spices (tamarind, cumin, chille powder, ginger, cinamon, garamsalata, tumeric.. and fresh coriander) then left to simmer whilst I cooked basmati and made bahjis..choped onions, spices (only chille, cumin and tumeric) salt, fresh coriander, mixed in a chickpea flour batter and fried..and shop bought popadoms..which are usally gf. A veritable feast!

Mmmm, sounds good Belle. We had sausages with a turnip & potato bake, (made with garlic & fresh herbs & cream) plus mangetout & baby carrots. I'm having to get creative with whatever is cropping in my wonderful new poly tunnel.
I need to start using beetroot soon....not something I would normally have unless it's pickled. Is it good in a curry??

Oooh yes we all remarked on how good it was. i much prefer beetroot unpickled, cook it in it's skin then de skin it, stick a knob of butter on, serve it as a hot veg with anything...absolutely delicious it's sweeter than carrots..which is why it goes well with spice. We have a whole one each..great in soup too!

Belle, apart from suet pastry it's the only way to go. The recipe was given me by an old lady who lived on a farm during WW2. (Plenty of cream despite rationing!) 500g SR flour and about half a pint of cream. Mix together adding milk if it's a bit stiff. That's it! Try it, wonderful pastry. If you want to you can add sugar or salt of course. Makes lovely cheese straws and so quick.

Had half the well-done pie and some sad cake for tea. I have two slices of pie and about half the sad cake left, they will bite the dust today. Black pudding egg and baked beans for lunch....
