    Where did you get to? I honked a few times but you never came so I had to go to catch the start of my shift

    Dunno why but we are ridiculously busy at the mo, T have some new Salad Promotions but larger than forecast orders from W, S, & M&S too. Is everyone on diets?
    Will probably see a lot of Salad & Stir Fry Woopsies soon

    Morning everyone

    Good morning all!
    Does anyone actually like that Serano ham?
    I really liked the look of it, so was delighted when they had tasters on offer last year, I was so disappointed, it tasted like salt, and had the texture of old boots!
    My unsophisticated pallete maybe, but just thought i would share. x

    The biscuits are picking up the sale price in W but predicted to end soon.

    Morning peeps.

    The tree is fine and DH is really upset over what he has done. Off to garage this morning to see what they say - main concern at the moment is if the car is OK to drive. We are flying from Heathrow in a couple of weeks and if the car is off the road we are completely stuffed. This is not a good start to 2018.

    Evening peeps.

    I bought one of the serrano hams tonight at A's that were reduced to 10. God knows why!! I don't even know what to do with it!!!

    Any suggestions, apart from wrapping chicken breasts?
    Originally posted by scamps1966
    There are hundreds of recipes with serrano ham, it is very versatile

    served cold as a snack/tapas
    Wrap round breadsticks and dip in your favourite dips
    wrap round any fruit or cheese in bite size pieces, goes well with figs, melon, grapes, pears, mozzarella, cheddar, brie

    Put in any salad you want hot or cold

    served hot
    Ham and poached egg on toast
    Make a toastie with ham and tomato or cheese
    Put in any stews and casseroles
    Goes well with any white fish, scallops, beef and chicken/turkey

    Dry fry and crumble up and sprinkle it over pasta or mash potatoes or salad

    One of my favourites is wrapping a banana, dry fry and then drizzle with a bit of honey/maple syrup nom nom

    For a cheap and easy, one pot meal
    A play on Egg Flamenco
    A tin of tomatoes, chopped up serrano ham, an onion and garlic if you want and what ever herbs you normally use mix all together
    put in an oven proof dish, put in oven and heat for 15 min at 200
    take out oven make two holes in the mixture and crack an egg into each hole put back in oven and cook until the eggs are just set , dig in with what ever bread you have
    If you want to bulk it out add a tin beans and sausage or tin lentils or tin chick peas or tin kidney beans or any left over meats

    If your in a rush you can do this in the microwave, just remember to break the membrane on the egg yoke so that it does not blow up and make a mess in your microwave

    It can be a bit salty, it depends on who makes it, if I get one that is salty I use it in cooking to season
    The air reacts with the meat so if left out uncovered then it does go a little leather like , if it goes like this just dry fry and crumble it up and sprinkle over different foods
