Lush certainly we collecting plastic bottle tops a little while ago.

I've had a bit of a rebellion over the last couple of days and whilst tidying up have to admit sweeping bottle tops, milk bottle foils and various other things into the bin. I just haven't the energy to sort them all out and wash them.

i'll get over it and normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

Gail - it's been ages!!

We take ours to Lush, but we don't have a branch very near, we leave it for when we go to Worcester or Cheltenham which means we have a good six months' worth. The Lush employees are trained to be bright and cheerful, so they always sound enthusiastic when I unload my bagful of tops, but it's far too much for the little cardboard container they provide in the shop so I'm not sure if I'm being a nuisance!

It's nearly six months since Christmas and I still have the left over turkey I froze about 3 days after Christmas. (Was supposed to be sooner, but I was ill for 2 days!)

So I think it is time to cook it up into a tasty dish but feel that all my standbys are going to be greeted unenthusiastically. I usually serve it in a white sauce or curry it at Christmas.

does anyone have any suggestions for appetiosing meals.

Last year I ended up binning the frozen remains in December. I don't want to do that this year.

I've put a recipe for a casserole in the recipe section.
If I freeze roast meat I often cook it by thawing (in the fridge), then putting in gravy and cooking in the oven for half an hour or longer on gas mark 4 (180C)

I'm sure no-one would be bored with the reappearance of the turkey - with the current cold weather, it's quite cheering to have a hot traditional meal.
(Mr D and I once went to visit a relative who prepared a beautiful meal from Elizabeth David's 'Summer Cooking', which was all cold. It started with frozen soup - which would have been fine on a hot day, but it was the kind of weather we're having now, and was a bit miserable to tell the truth!!

At the local dump recycling centre this morning, in the "small appliances" skip:

I suppose it is at least going for recycling, but as this place only accepts domestic waste, one has to wonder why ?
