Hurtyback,

I really like Edinburgh Rock and also Ginger creams but it is too moreish.

Everyone,

I just wondered is any of you had a Roast dinner today. It is one thing I miss from when I was young, because even on my best day I cant make Yorkshire Puddings or proper gravy. We did have bacon snadwiches earlier and they certainly filled a gap.

:-)

I've been tempted by the salsa, but not got around to it.

I really like stuffed olives at the moment both the black and green olives. Those smaller Spanish olives are also really quite yummy. >love<

I'm no good at yorkshires either so I do as Suessad too. However, I prefer Tesco finest roast potatoes in dripping.

I can do roast spuds but I find it difficult to buy suitable spuds in small quantities. The frozen ones are much more convenient and not much more expensive if one takes account of the waste if buying a pack (the only way to get a suitable variety).

Don't have a local greengrocer to try.

suessad and oldtone,

I had the frozen kind and they are better than they used to be, especially the Tescos Finest one, but they dont work the same with jam on the next day as home bake ones do. :-)

DD,

I think olive oil is okay but I have never tried olives. What are they like?

I can't really tell you what they are like as the taste of them is rather unique and I don't know what other thing that they could taste like.
They are nice but some people will try them and think that they taste horrible, when I first tried then I didn't like them and a few years later my tastes have changes and now I like olives. I would say that for some people they could say that olives have a deep, earth, veggy flavour.

Onto another non-olive topic, hot drinks.

Mint Aero chocolate drink is very nice if a little expensive. But hey if you don't spend money on going out, socialising alot or going to town regularly you tend to have a little extra money for a few nice and rather delicious edible treats. It's a shame though when you live with someone who also likes olives.... :-(

I was on another site the other day and some one who was in Tel Aviv Israel  said they where having Shakshuka so I tried it my self and really liked it you poach eggs in a spicy tomato sauce and eat it with bread. Here is a link to a recipe but you can modify to your own liking one good thing is you can eat it straight from the pan.

Mmmmm, I lurve olives and spicey food. I rarely use fresh veg as I can't stand around to prepare them. For just the 2 of us, frozen stuff works out economically because, as has been said, there is no waste.

Sunshine Meadows...........
re. yorkshire and gravy, is it a physical problem or that you don't know how?

Yorkshire
the same amount by volume
plain flour
eggs
milk

eg. 1 cup

mix either by hand or a liquidizer

leave for 40 min at room temp
heat a pan with fat (beef dripping is best) until smoking

pour in the mix and cook at 220c for 30 min


When buying a joint ask the butcher for some bones (same sort as the joint) and use them as a trivet to put the meat on, this will keep the meat away from the pan and add more taste to the juices for the gravy.

Allow the meat to come to room temp and then seal it in a pan before placing in the oven and don't forget to leave it to rest (cover with tin foil) for at twice as long as you would think!  med joint 20/30 mins( longer if you can.)

Stalwart,

Having CP means I cant get the Yorkshire Pudding mixture into the tin and into the oven quickly enough so as to keep the tin, the fat in the tin and the oven good and hot. I have a Kenwood Chef that I can make the mixture in.

I have asked Mr Sunshine to help but he moves slowly because of his knee. If I make the mixture he does make good pancakes though :-)

DD,

I like Galaxy chocolate drink which always tastes better when Mr Sunshine makes it and brings it to me :-)

Pink,

If you didn't have a roast dinner what did you have?

This but not very often for obvious reasons:-



Or very rarely because they are not caught all that often and they cost a mortgage one of these, (The crayfish, not the young lady.)
