Good afternoon, in a tradition of keeping home making alive, pop in for a chat.
Share a recipe, tell us about your latest craft project, a place of warm fluffiness, friendship and hugs.

Late night gin also available

Oooh what about Poached cod in milk with cinnamon and pepper, baby potatoes and seasonal veg......only takes the length of time to cook as it takes the pots and veg to cook :)))))))))
Another alternative is poached trout stuffed with slices of lime or lemon... Mmmmmmmmmm

Hang on why are you being nice to me ????????

Sorry LMG.....

Place the fish in dish with a lid, add a small amount of milk 100ml (Skimmed of course). sprinkle with cinnamon (short cooking time so not enough time to infuse stick) and ground pepper corns. Place in middle of pre heated oven gas mark 4.
At the same time place potatoes on to boil, veg should be cooked to your preference. steamed if possible well cooked same time as pots or al-dante 10mins max.
Serve with a light soy or white wine, parsley and lemon sauce sauce,and season with salt and pepper.... voila.....

Lovely, homemade double choc chip cookies, mmm and they taste wonderful, thanks

Would love to have a gin later, but unable to have alcohol at the moment, as I have 5 week old twins, could have dire effects there!

Twintubella - advice from my friend and mother of 3 (one set twins included) is that they will sleep very well if mother imbibes booze. She's a doctor too. So it must be ok.

Oh thanks for that littlemissgreedy, perhaps I shall return here after 6 then!

29/07/2004 at 15:28
Hi, I like this idea! Yummy cookies - thanks BB

I like the recipes too

twintubella, think if I had 5 week old twins, I'd be living on gin! I'll have a gin when the clock strikes 6 please!

I'm in the middle of cross-stitching a cushion cover - indian elephant - very colourful with beads etc, then, when the light gets too bad in the evening, I'm knitting an aran jumper. I can't just watch tv, I get too bored.

I'm a Nigella devotee too - have you tried her chocolate fudge cake - I do it for birthdays etc and won't tell the family where the recipe comes from, so they think I'm very talented!!!! ;0)

I didn't cross stitch I fell asleep.

Hello Twintublla, not seen you around before, I have twins who are now 8, but no longer breastfeding:-)))

I drank when I was feeding, though much less than I do now.

Alley cat hav you tried a daylight bulb, I find that helps enormously. Am also knitting a jumper for little H, purple with a bright orange band across the bottom.
Have stacks of other projects on the go to.

Must get on and do some more and not sit and drink in the summer house.
