    I would do the venison steaks really simply, fried medium with a mushroom and red wine sauce and at this time of the year some simple asparagus on the side. Use the leftover asparagus stalks for a nice simple asparagus soup.

    One thing I don't like to comprimise on is a sunday roast - I justify the 'luxury' of a slab of good meat but making 2 meals from it, serving with seasonal/ home grown veg.

    I have also discovered a free way of making any meal taste better and be appreciated by the family more is to sit at the table to eat it rather than on our knees...though this is still an occassional treat when Dr Who coincides with dinner!

    Thanks Jackie - sounds lovely. I might even manage homegrown asparagus yet.

    I meant to say Thriftlady I totally agree on Rose Prince - now that is a book that makes me hungry. I also like the Clare Macdonald ones for the same reason. Just thinking about it set me off so I am sat here eating a slice of HM Chocolate Nut Meringue Roulade as made in between gardening yesterday. The rest of the double cream has been poured onto some sliced potatoes and garlic, which will be slow cooked and served with roast beef (a small joint from the good butchers, rather than a big bit from the supermarket) with kohl rabi from my veg box. *dribbles*

    steamed and then dressed with butter and pepper I think. I do like my veg 'simples' mostly - let the flavour shine through and all that.

    Thanks. Me too, I was hoping you'd suggest something new, oh well, maybe someone else will come along....

    I've never tried kohl rabi. It has never turned up in my veg box, and I've never seen it in the greengrocer's. What does it taste like?

    addiscomber - kohl rabi to me tastes like radish but milder. Very nice raw too, DS1 has had to be chased away from the prepped bowl. I do grow it myself but this lot came in my veg box two weeks in a row.

    Thanks, hex2. Are they easy to grow? and any idea how much an average one weighs?
