    There were problems with the original thread in that it disappeared and could not be reinstated.

    So a new thread was created and we all started again, unfortunately that thread also seems to have joined it's predecessor.

    So here's a new one. We need to hear about Suki's lamb casserole and Island Maid is back from Amsterdam and must have delights to tell us about.

    Maybe if the old one can be found then this can be merged?

    Anyway without further ado...

    Ohhhh, is he doing a solo performance? Some of the best songwriting around IMO, I am most envious.

    Dinner tonight for us is h/m meatballs and pasta. It's cold and I need comfort food.

    Oddly I haven't seen the Stereophonics as much as many other bands from the 90's, no idea why really as I always really liked them. Must dig out my old gig tickets and festival programmes and have a look at them.

    Dinner tonight will not be Kelly Jones....best go and check out the freezer

    Making the quiche tonight and while oven is on doing roast veggies. Confessing that when in Asd... I asked for the chips on the rostis.... counter but they had none but then I BOUGHT a bag of the McC.. salt and pepper chips - I mean !!! I have plenty of potatoes at home + frozen chips - Ashamed. But I only had half the bag with faggots last night, then a chip sarnie during evening and still some left for a lunchtime sarnie today. Buying a bag of chips !!! what on earth!!!! but they were nice.

    It's great that you can easily substitute the additional veg for what you have / like

    Mince, carrots, onions, dumplings, gravy, mash – just perfect for a night like this, curled up with the pooch with the heating on.... after being soaked on our walk no doubt !
