I have been busy in the kitchen all morning, whilst listening to online chemistry lectures.

I made some chicken stock with the chicken carcass, and the following for my vegan friends:
- a dhal with spinach
- a dark root veg soup
- a borlotti beans and celeriac stew
- a potato and kale dry curry

for myself, on top of what didn't fit in the plastic tubs of what I was preparing for them, I made some chicken potato and spinach "thing".

and no, Mr Rhomboid, I did not put chicken stock in the vegan dishes... hihi!

We had friends round. Pate de Foie gras on toast as a starter, then roast duck, red cabbage slow cooked with appl fennel and onion, Apple and cherry pie to follow. With cider, elderfloe=wer wine and cognac.

Combined with the codeine I had earlier, i feel quite mellow.

Spent the morning preparing & cooking 5 meals for the freezer, 2 sausage casseroles, 2 beef casseroles & a pasta & ham thing that we like. If I work it right, I can make some pastry pies later in the week & end up with a weeks worth of meals in the freezer that only need reheating.

Feel very pleased with myself.

Cooking day went well, made

3 pots of chicken pate

1 large loaf tin of haslet

2 Irish stews

Roasted stuffed hearts.

All smelt very nice, just letting the haslet set in the fridge. Will probably put it in the freezer for a while tomorrow before I slice it up & freeze.

Pate will do teas or breakfast, & 1 stew to freeze for next week.

After Pol's feast I feel embarrassed to say that I've just put a Stainsburys value pizza in the oven!! (But I did put extra vegetables and cheese on it!!)

Local sausages from the butchers nearest to us. Mr D chose Tarrington Toms (pork with tomatoes and basil) and I had the pork with bacon and black pudding. Very nice - delicious in fact!

Did you know that Dave's son Matt is opening another branch, in Colwall? Waller's empire expands eastwards!

I like the cider and sage ones best, myself. And the plain 95% meat ones. mmmmm

Do you have a particular sauce/topping recipe Pol ?

We have pizza on Saturdays as a family tradition. The base is Italian focaccia dough from the breadmaker. For the sauce I sweat fennel seed and garlic in olive oil, then add tinned tomatoes and oregano. At this point the smell seems to force me to reach for a bottle of red wine !

I always have plain pureed toms in the freezer. I buy them when they are in the cheapy bin. Spread onto a plain bought base. Personally I don`t usually add add any seasoning, but I do add sliced mushrooms, chopped pepper 2 kinds of meat, usually a garlic sausage & some sort of chorizo, the hotter the better, topped of with a bit of cheese today I also added some pineapple. Would like to add more cheese, but it really agravates my blood sugars.

Sounds good to me. Especially the last bit Very Happy

Edited to add: I meant the hotter the better, not aggravated blood sugars, you understand ... looked a bit odd when I read it back !

The 'Slow Food' movement is all very well and good, but it's jolly hard to put all your love and attention in to your cooking when your son phones up in a panic because he needs me to order him a ticket for Bloodstock before they run out. So it was a very quick pepper and tomato pasta sauce, and the prospect of six months of emails from Megadeth telling me when their next gig is...I thought the colour of the sauce was quite appropriate!

Fajitas tonight (we favour the old Herefordshire pronunciation, i.e. fadjiters). A kind friend brought us a box of Westons organic cider at Easter - it's very chilling on the tongue when you've put too much spice in the meat!!

Pizza again, but this time instead of tomato base I used toast toppers (they are 2 for £1 in the Pound Shop) extra mushrooms, peppers sweetcorn meat a sliced tomato & cheese.

very nice, but I prefer the tomato base.
