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 casseroled a couple of sirloins with beans, chopped tomatoe and seasoning. My neighbour threw some wilting sprouts at me so I added them as well and had half with some chips. Enjoyed the sprouts so much I got a few this morning to chuck in with the half left over from last night.

''Bruff...you sound like a man who knows his way around the kitchen.''

 
Marilyn - Cooking and food (ingredients and the like) is my hobby, or more correctly an obsession.  My wife and most of my friends joke that you can't get an ounce of sense out of me unless I'm banging on about food, and they're probably right.  I do most of the cooking in my house, as well as the food shopping, and I'm afraid the trip to the butchers/greengrocers/farm shop etc on a Saturday morning is the highlight of my week.  I love it.  I can't wait to get out tomorrow and have a sneck at what they have in that looks good (though the butcher will have a rabbit for me, as I rang up and asked for one).

 
Chicken with peppers tonight.

How will you cook the rabbit Richard? I've never cooked rabbit before, but a neighbour has given me one (already skinned) and I'm looking for ideas.

Maz, I think Bruff has illustrated nicely why i prefer the Beers and speedo man, men are by nature competitive, if I wanted to cook competitively I would join one of those endless programmes on TV, no for me a man needs to be good at men things, driving, digging, climbing, fixing, running, carrying, cuddling and appreciating what I cook!

Well done Belle. Glad you are fixed up. Re men with Speedos, does cooking and making steam engines in the shed raise my status at all? I hardly ever drink beer, only if I'm thirsty and have to be in a pub.

Richard, I share your passion for good food. Next freezer load of Dexter beef will arrive next week. (remainder of the side I bought a few weeks ago). I cook very plainly because that's what I enjoy. I suspect your body is a temple as well.... we are what we eat!

Rolled Dexter brisket in P Cooker. I shall cook it down, bake a loaf, cut one third off the brisket for slicing for butties and the rest + the gravy (with fat removed and put in fryer)  will get cut up fat removed, broth bits, diced spuds and veg added and will be a good thick beef stew.

The macaroni cheese was very tasty but a bit dry - will have to add more of the liquid next time.  Rib eye steaks tonight with a pepper sauce.

Belle...I guess that is one of the great things about being human...we all want and look for different things....which is just as well...or we would be in trouble.
But your husband CAN cook, and I'm sure you have been very appreciative of that ability at times. Mine can only do Baked Beans or Packet Pasta! I've been appreciative of that too, on a couple of desperate occasions. Febby has many great qualities. Cooking ain't one of 'em!

I'm not sure what to do for dinner, though I have taken a parcel of Minced Veal out of the freezer. I will have come to some decision by the time it is thawed.


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

We had rabbit last night, slowly cooked with a bit of bacon and homegrown leeks in a white wine sauce, served with mashed tatties. it was very tasty.
On Saturday we had lunch out at the Copper Dragon Brewery Bistro in Skipton. Great food at very reasonable prices.

Belle, it will be the first line of my first novel, which I will no doubt write after I have painted my first masterpiece!

It was a wild and stormy night. Ever had a craving for black pudding butty at 22:00? Funny how things strike you. I resisted, I had half of a pudding on one slice of toast!

Having a freezer clearing week so I can re-stock for Winter.  Hubby had left over oxtail and I had left over curry last night.  Tonight it is chicken & leek pie (home made).

Moh, One of the things I like about my new fridge/freezer is how fast the freezer de-frosts. 30 minutes. Last piece of Dexter brisket cooking, must ring Stewart today. I need a top-up! He's got some more in the freezer for me off the last heifer.
