    Longk all of that is getting my taste buds going!

    One of my old time favourites - yum yum!

    Liking the sound of those tatties Jenny - I'll give them a try!

    What did I have, not much - made a soup of yesterdays leftover pork casserole (minus pork).
    But I am going to a friends in about 20 mins time for supper - she is an ex cookery teacher so I always look forward to her meals.

      Roast chicken, fondant potatoes (first time making them, and definitely won't be the last), with baby carrots and green beans.

        Take four reasonable size Maris Pipers, give them a flat top and bottom, peel into a barrel shape and then cut them in half; heat 5oz butter in a pan until it froths, place the potatoes flat side down and fry for 5-6 mins (don't be tempted to move them at all) until they are golden brown, then flip them over and do the other side for 5-6 mins; add 75-100ml chicken stock (or vegetable stock if you prefer) and be careful as the fat in the pan will splutter a bit when the stock is poured in; pop a couple of cloves of garlic into the pan, and add a couple of sprigs of thyme, then cover with a lid and simmer gently until the potatoes are tender.

        They end up with this sort of nice, soft but slightly sticky texture and they taste incredible.

            OH wanted fish and chips today- busy at boot sale - so picked some up as we came home at lunchtime (our chippie makes a lovely crispy batter) do not have sale and vinegar until we get home, they get soggy otherwise. Washed down with a crisp white Lambrusco. Pudding was a chocolate whoopie pie cake- lush !! :huh:

                oooh, fish and chips, I sooo miss fish and chips :cry3:

                We had turkey, roast spuds and sprouts - strangely we never have that as Christmas dinner but do have it often throughout the year.
