    Ohh, what do you make the caramel rum sauce with? Sounds yummy
    Melt 60g butter with 85g dark brown sugar, juice of half a lemon and 50ml (or thereabouts!) dark rum in a heavy based all-metal (no wooden handle) frying pan. Stir gently until sugar has dissolved and it turns into caramel. You can add a pinch of ground cloves at this point, but I don't always bother.

    Arrange thickly sliced bananas all over the rum caramel, then cover with a sheet of puff pastry (tucked in all around the edges like a lid). Bake in the oven for oh I dunno, about 30 mins at a medium heat until puffed and golden, leave for 5 mins to start cooling down then carefully flip out onto a serving dish so the pastry is now underneath. Do not splatter yourself with hot caramel, it's a bit volcanic.  It is also v yummy.  Mr CJ uses a long handled sundae spoon for this one :D

    @C_J thanks for that. Annoyingly I have white rum...but I'm thinking pina colada vibes.... 

    Dinner tonight was a portion of lamb casserole from the freezer, end of some sprouts I'd par boiled a while ago with some petit pois and last two Yorkshire puddings that were in the freezer too. 

    I seem to have a lot of ingredients in the freezer atm, must make an effort to make those into something. Also going to need to make more stock as i have a chicken roasting in for mog and several carcasses in the freezer already.

    We had mashed potatoes,  brussel sprouts,  tender stem broccoli,  and pie, husband had steak pie and I made a concoction from mushroom,  vegan quorn and vegan cream cheese. It was ok. I will be happy when January is over and I will revert back to just vegetarian I'm only doing vegan as daughter is doing veganuary.

    OH is being radical and has proposed fish (as in battered) with mash.  But also got scampi so we might do fish & scampi & mash.  I had intended salad with mine either way but I do love mash.....(don't tell the weight loss board)
