  1. Not too sure if it's the best meal I've ever cooked, but it was the most challenging and rewarding, and one I would certainly enjoy again

    Some friends do not eat meat, fish, mushrooms or eggs!!

     I searched through the few cookery books I had with me and came up with the following menu;

    *************

    Spinach and ricotta lasagne with homemade tomato jus and salad leaves,

    ******************************

    Potato, leek and cheese gratin (loosely based on tartiflette)

    Spicy bean casserole

    Roasted summer veg

    ******************

    cheese and biscuits

    **************

    pear tart and creme fraiche

    ************

    I think they enjoyed it, as there were clean plates all round.[:D]

     

     

     

  2. There is a saying that you should 'eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper'. presumably this is because not only is it easier to digest, but also  gives you the energy you need.

    I have to admit that as I've gotten older I find it more difficult to digest a heavy meal after about 8pm.[:(]

    Yes, something's definitely got to change.

     

    I bake lovely bread

    Could wheat be a problem?[:-))]

     I used to have bread/toast every day. I tried a GI eating plan, avoiding wheat and although I didn't loose much weight I lost inches around my waist. As soon as I started to eat lots of bread I start to bloat again. [:(]

    Anyone want to buy a breadmaker?

  4. A cardiologist died and was given an elaborate funeral. A huge Heart covered in flowers stood behind the casket during the service. Following the eulogy, the heart opened, and the casket rolled inside. The heart then closed, sealing the doctor in the beautiful heart forever.

    At that point, one of the mourners burst into laughter. When all eyes stared at him, he said, "I'm sorry, I was just thinking of my own funeral....I'm a gynecologist".

    The proctologist fainted. [+o(]

    Edit; sorry double posting.

  6. [quote user="dave21478"]The previous ladyfriend and myself (early 30`s) generally slept together but had a spare bedroom which would be used by either of us at any time due to her snoring like a faulty chainsaw and me snoring like an old tractor starting from cold. Whoever was disturbed by the others noises would retreat to the second bedroom for some peace and quiet.
