No 3 Celeriac, celery and shropshire blue soup.....and sage/stilton stuffed bread ( would that be no 4 I wonder? not made it before? so I guess yes?)
Guess who is using up the last of the festive cheese board ends?

No 1 was the very slow roast shoulder of lamb with sliced potatoes, garlic and onions in stock as a base for the lamb underneath. 6 hours plus....mmmm

No 2 was a pear and almond tart with chilli chocolate flakes...mmmmm

Well I made a Cajun Chicken thingy today. Admit I cheated & used a packet mix, something I often do when I do not want to spend a long time cooking, but if we like it I then keep the packet & next time I make it I do it from scratch with a list of ingrediants in front of me.

Result, I loved it, OH did not. It was very peppery but quite delicous. I now have a portion frozen in the freezer.

I can never bring myself to make paté - the foie gras are just so delicious on their own on toast or over other dishes, I can't bring myself to sacrifice them.

#5 rolled meatloaf stuffed with spinach, carrots, prosciutto and Tallegio cooked over red wine and rosemary - am a little concerned that the roll may not retain its structural integrity during the oven phase.

no 5 Pork with dried plums, dried toms, pine nuts slow simmered in an onion and honey sauce...

home grown and dried plums, toms, onions, stock and all the herbs were mine as well...Baked spuds and veg all from garden...wonder if I could get pine nuts from any of the trees in the wood...if the blardy tree rats leave any...

just need to keep bees and pigs now..CM and CG are v resistant to piggies as they are "so cute"...yes they are. You enjoy their cuteness . And then you enjoy their flavour.

Thanks for the link, interesting stuff!

But sadly....I don't have any suitable pines in the wood, ..and if I tried to get the nuts out of the pine trees I DO have, I would be there all day, just for a teaspoonful.....!

( and Billy obviously I was refering to potential pine trees.)

oh well.......will keep eyes peeled for Stone Pine trees around...!

I used to have two huge Stone Pines in my garden in Perpignan. Every autumn it was a race to harvest the cones before teh Catalan Gypsies turned up and nicked them all.
One day I came home to find one of my trees shaking violently. So i shook it a bit more and two wizened old men fell out, apologising profusely, and exhorting me not to shoot them.
I found it quite humourous in fact and we had a glass of wine or two together and they told me tall tales of cone-rustling.

Mostly I use walnuts in place of pine nuts in recipes - pesto and so on. Works just as well and we have kilos and kilos of walnuts whereas as pine nuts are a couple of quid for 50g or something ridiculous.

You could try using pine nuts instead.

Oh dear, well I don't know what else to suggest in that case, CW.

However for anyone else who may be reading who does not have your aversion to walnuts, they might find the substitution useful.

I wasn't unhappy at your suggestion about the walnuts Billy...but why suggest pine nuts again? THAT was what I was refering to....

In fact the walnuts sound like a very good substitute...wonder if I could do the same with hazel nuts? ( which I both have in the wood... and like?)

I don't want to continue pushing walnuts when they are obviously not your flavor of choice... but Black Walnuts have a v similar flavor to pine nuts. Are they available there?... :::running and ducking in case CW sees fit to lob a few Black walnuts IN the shell in my direction:::
