What an unappetising, and uninspiring, menu Fallon and Emma have come up
with! Canapes, all wrapped in pastry, followed by pies, followed by
desserts which have been designed to look exactly like the canapes.

What's the betting that Miranda insists on following either a gluten
free, or low carb diet?

Oh? How is this connected to land? Itwsbt.

Actually, I think Watership Down as an inspiration for land with rabbit
would have been inspired. Not sure what the other courses would be.

Cornucopias, overflowing with the bounty of the land. Hence, savoury
cream horns as canapes (along with mini quiches) and sweet ones (along
with apple tarts) for dessert. The main course to be pies - bunny,
cottage or vegetarian.

Pumpernickel is hardly a local delicacy so my theory has been destroyed!

Broccoli's no good, Her Worship of Felpersham is allergic. Now, I've
never heard of an allergy to broccoli, have you? (all brassicas,
perhaps, but they didn't elaborate) Is just a diplomatic way of saying
she really, really dislikes it, and will thwceam and thwceam till she's
sick if it's on the table?

Brassicas are sometimes blamed for flatulence I believe, maybe Miranda is a
friend of Trump?

Google suggests that, while relatively rare, broccoli allergy is far
from unknown.

I think this is going to be a compare and contrast between the mayor and
Miranda. The mayor, having a genuine allergy, has automatically warn
her hosts about her allergy, giving them the chance to accommodate it.
Miranda will, no doubt, turn her nose up at the proffered pastry-fest,
on the basis that she's either following a strict low-carb diet or that
she's modishly gluten free[1].


[1] I have no doubt that, if she was genuinely gluten intolerant, she
or Justin would have warned Jennifer.

Adam's got a great grandad (from Hazel's ex's side) who is on some
medication and which he's told he must not eat broccoli, there may be more
than one brassica he can't eat but its the one we all tuck into - except
that Tel can't *abide* the stuff : he's not the man to come up with the
wheeze to avoid it so it might just be true.

It seems eating broccoli can speed up liver function. The liver 'breaks
down' some drugs and if this process is speeded up it can make those drugs
less effective.

what Matron can be like if she gets cross... and besides green trees are

I don't *hate* it. In fact, I don't dislike it. I just prefer many
other vegetables over it. But it seems to be omnipresent on menus. I
suspect because it's cheap and more widely available than other veg.

What an unappetising, and uninspiring, menu Fallon and Emma have come up

desserts which have been designed to look exactly like the canapes.
What's the betting that Miranda insists on following either a gluten
free, or low carb diet?
Oh? How is this connected to land? Itwsbt.
Actually, I think Watership Down as an inspiration for land with rabbit
would have been inspired. Not sure what the other courses would be.

desserts which have been designed to look exactly like the canapes.
What's the betting that Miranda insists on following either a gluten
free, or low carb diet?
Oh? How is this connected to land? Itwsbt.
Actually, I think Watership Down as an inspiration for land with rabbit
would have been inspired. Not sure what the other courses would be.
When Jennifer kept mentioning the shepherd's pie I felt sure she had meant
lamb not land.
Beef in cottage pie, lamb in shepherds' pie, pork in ???
Weevil, late of this parish, referred to that as Swineherd's Pie. In my
family, if it had a mashed parsnip top, it was a Parsonage Pie (which
could have either beef or lamb in it)

I have just put a moussaka in the oven
<https://thehappyfoodie.co.uk/recipes/patrick-leigh-fermors-moussaka>

which is smelling rather delicious. Potatoes on the bottom add that
little bit extra, as does frying everything in own (kf) olive oil.

I first made this dish 40 years ago when we were in Texas and it took me
all morning. Now I use a carton of bechamel with added gruyere and it's
much easier and less washing up.

Trouble is I overdid the quantities a bit this morning and it's
overflowing the dish a bit...

Probly too late but bung a bigger dish underneath; in due course scrape off
the droplets & add to your next sauce d'Maison. πŸ€“

Slight swerve, I read 't'other day that layer of bi-carb followed by bleach
and more bi carb with a two hour soak, is excellent cleaner for metal
cooking pans. Don't suppose it would work on an oven though.

This sounds like it might be useful, but I'm not sure I've parsed this
correctly.

!. Coat pan with a layer of bi carb.
2. Pour in bleach.
3. Add even more bi carb.
4. Wait two hours.

Is that right?

I use soda crystals (better than powder but I can't remember what the
chemical difference is) and boiling water on burnt pans. Just sprinkle in
crystals and pour on the water - leave to soak then give it a brush before
rinsing. I always put the plug in the sink before emptying the pan after
this treatment as it brings the stainless steel sink up beautifully too.

Presumably (like using vinegar [or any other acid] to clean coins), it
works by removing some of the metal from the sink (or coins). OK,
probably a minuscule amount.

Would Sodium Carbonate really do that? It's pretty good for cleaning a
gunky drain too.

Yes. I don't think the bi carb has to be overly deep as a layer. I did it
on the metal lining of a slow cooker. It created a creamy foam and came up
very shiny after a soak. However, it wasn't that dirty so not proof of
concept.

Would this not also work with vinegar and bicarb, in the way that
USian grade school science project volcanos work? I use this method
for unblocking plugholes. I'd rather pour vinegar into my pans than
bleach!

Dunno. Formula states hydro-something peroxide and added "found in most
bleaching agents". Initially I bought a bottle of the exact chemical but
found it ineffective. Household bleach worked better.

What's the betting that Miranda insists on following either a gluten

Oh? How is this connected to land? Itwsbt.
Actually, I think Watership Down as an inspiration for land with rabbit
would have been inspired. Not sure what the other courses would be.

Inspired line that was. Guess who was working out how many rabbits were
harmed in the making of this plot line?

Fallon and Emma have got it right, local produce as in wild rabbit (if
there were game about it would have been better, root crops from Bridge
Farm), eggs presumably from Josh not Posh Hens (time we had something now
that free range is no longer free range), apples - no idea where cooking
apples gather in Ambridge. Goats cheese?? Where did that come from I
wonder? They're all products from the land - but would have been a better
menu later in the year.

What's the betting that Miranda insists on following either a gluten
free, or low carb diet?
Oh? How is this connected to land? Itwsbt.
Actually, I think Watership Down as an inspiration for land with rabbit
would have been inspired. Not sure what the other courses would be.
Inspired line that was. Guess who was working out how many rabbits were
harmed in the making of this plot line?
Fallon and Emma have got it right, local produce as in wild rabbit (if
there were game about it would have been better, root crops from Bridge
Farm), eggs presumably from Josh not Posh Hens (time we had something now
that free range is no longer free range), apples - no idea

Lynda once had Nubian goats. They may have decendendents.
Ah, but that was a very long time ago (I might not have bern

need?
Sincerely Chris
They just seemed to fade from any mention.

As we journey through life, discarding baggage along the way, we should keep
an iron grip, to the very end, on the capacity for silliness. It preserves the
soul from desiccation. - Humphrey Lyttelton quoted by Barry Cryer in Radio

being allowed out now - as long as they're a couple of miles from water.

Sort of. If you're in a high risk area according to the Defra map, your
hens are still restricted and can no longer be marketed as free range. If
you are outside those areas then you can let them range provided you take
special biosecurity measures.

Close to large areas of water will probably mean you're in a high risk
area.

Tesco Huddersfield, anti-clockwise, hasn't changed the labeling or the

In Sainsbury's today (Market St, clockwise, not Aspley, clockwise, in

Tse it is irrelevant. My eggs come direct from free range farm. But they
tell me the hens rarely wander outside.

I don't know why it seems such a clever idea - almost all food is from
the land. All they have to do is exclude fish and seafood; everything
else (meat, game, vegetables, fruit) comes from the land. That's how
agriculture works, although it took Emma a long time to work this out.

The whole event is a bit of a mystery. They are now having pastry,
followed by pies (with root veg) followed by more pastry. Quite apart
from the stodginess of the whole thing, this can't possibly be served as
a buffet you eat with your spare hand while you hold on to your drink
with the other - how could you eat stuff out of ramekins, and root veg?
It's to be served as three courses, so it must be a sit-down meal, but
there seem to be dozens of people invited, so where and how are they all
going to be seated?

My Gorgeous Goddaughter [1] had her wedding reception in a cow barn
last year. The farmer agreed they could use it as long as they
cleaned it out and made it suitable. So they spent 3 days scrubbing
it and building a bar area out of timbers and used bales of hay for
sofas. Weatherproofing (much needed on the day) was heavy duty
plastic sheeting.

[1] who will be 29 next week. I demand a recount!

In a posh barn?
My Gorgeous Goddaughter [1] had her wedding reception in a cow barn
last year. The farmer agreed they could use it as long as they
cleaned it out and made it suitable. So they spent 3 days scrubbing
it and building a bar area out of timbers and used bales of hay for
sofas. Weatherproofing (much needed on the day) was heavy duty
plastic sheeting.
[1] who will be 29 next week. I demand a recount!
One of my beautiful Australian nieces got married in a barn. The family
decorated it most imaginatively.

Do, as a concession to my poor wits, Lord Darlington, just explain
to me what you really mean.

Dunno but handy things in heavy rain.
