Once again not much to say about the Monday itself, except that despite Kim’s rather accurate program for the evening we managed to keep the argument to a minimum, AND Sean stayed awake for all of Dr Who! How’s that for a splendid effort, mmh? Never mind, pretty private joke I suppose. The menu that [...]

One week and bits late, I know, but hey, it’s not like anyone’s reading. So, last week’s dinner – not much to report, just the usual fun. Layered glasses (verrines) For this one I managed to not find, forget to buy, or decide to pass on practically every ingredient in the actual recipe, apart from [...]

Well, that was another weird one and no mistake… Before I write down the dream itself, let me take a minute to discuss the series Torchwood. It’s crap. It really is. Acting is pretty much lousy from everyone except Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones), special mention to John Barrowman for some of the most dire emotional sequences [...]

Not necessarily their fault – if [...]

Third Monday

Monday has come and gone, and once again there was much merriment and enjoyment of the foodage. This time I didn’t forget my camera – although whatever skill I may have once had at taking pictures was obviously left behind in the kitchen with the dirty pots and pans! One thing I have to say about [...]

First Monday dinner

And as promised this is the menu from our first Monday night dinner, 19th of May. Starting off with some “Pirogues de concombres au saumon fumé“. These I was particularly happy with – they were delicious, fun to make, and a minimum of work even made them kinda pretty to look at. Hey, it was [...]
