    I have carrot and coriander soup for lunch. Have had hm battenburg, but that was what MIL made for us. The difference between HM and shop bought is amazing!

    Planning a lamb shanks recipe, a swedish one I have that is white wine based rather than red wine/tomatoes etc. I'm starting with a shoulder of lamb hacked into chunks, My last piece of local lamb till goodness knows when as my name hasn't come up on 'the list'. Rice pudding will go in the oven with that I think.

    Dunno what else?
