A pleasure Moh to respond to a polite request. Good job the lads educated me in the matter of inserting short links! Just in time.

Had sirloin butties last nigh but then cracked and had the last of the Coleslaw in a butty made from the last of the loaf. Big mistake, too much and too late at night! Never mind, we start afresh today with a pice of Dexter brisket to boil and a new loaf started.  I shall be more abstemious!

Boiled the brisket, veggies into the gravy with diced spuds and some of the brisket chopped up. Good warming stew. Had a butty of brisket in fresh home made bread as well. After a bit of experimenting I have perfected adding mediu, oatmeal to my bread. No more than two tablespoons and some extra water.

I've also cracked the best way of thickening soup with oatmeal and avoiding it sticking to the bottom of the pan. Wait 'til the soup is finished. Ladle out gravy into a bowl, add two tablespoons of oatmeal and whizz with the magic mixer until it goes creamy. Microwave for as long as it takes to boill, stir it up, add to the soup and stir in and it thickens without any heat. Sounds long winded but doesn't take long at all and a perfect result.

Beef stew tonight with veg from the greengrocers on the square and beef from a home-reared highland steer.  Perfect tackle when you've been outside in the wind and rain all day.  Go to Top of Page

I've popped a loaf in. Not made up my mind about tea yet. Fish or meat? Decisions, decisions!

I dont want to eat for another month. Just got back from our houseboat holiday and need to drop a few kilos!
(son emailed a very unflattering photo that he took of me...though to be honest...I was wearing black clothes and sat in a massive black chair...and it's hard to say where the chair stops and I start! One of those photos that should never see the light of day none the less.)


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

Your body will soon make the adjustments Maz. All you have to do is help it.

Boring I know but I chucked a lump of brisket in the pressure cooker for two hours. Lifted it out and drained it. Took the trivet out of the pan, two bags of broth mix, three small onions, garlic and seasoning and another hour on the stove. Took some liquid off, whizzed in three heaped tablespoons of medium oatmeal until it was like cream, poured that back in the pan, brought it to the boil stirring all the time and when it cooled a bit adjusted the seasoning. So tea was a brisket butty and a bowl of veggie soup. Cheap, all good stuff and very tasty. What more could a bloke want?

You do live well Moh....  Great to hear someone is still cooking! As I write the dried peas are in the pressure cooker and I have a sheet of smoked ribs ready to cook down. Some good pea soup coming up. Still on brisket butties and fruit for afters. Pea soup will fill the cracks!
