Chatterbox LXXVIII Olivia

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

The world's gone mad. :scared: Apparently, according to the Times, sales of puy lentils has gone through the roof.

Reason? The school George attends has them on their menu, can't remember what with. Just because they're on the menu! Wanders off … shaking head … muttering ...

Think the focaccia isn't happening

The builders came and turned the power off at just the wrong moment, will have to stroll up to the Turkish bakery

However on the plus side I will have a working bathroom door in an hour or so, handy as Book Club is here tonight :lol:
They have already replaced the damaged power socket and changed the dimmer switch for one that actually works with LEDs, Ed is currently assembling the new shower screen on the living room floor

I'm in that betwixt andf between place where I can't do much because they are here and I feel slightly at a loose end

I think that I might prefer the components of the breakfast muffins individually, jrc but maybe that is just me. BTW do you eat them with your fingers?
The Lakeland order has been unpacked, we got a free gift of Klippets, they will replace our Mk 1 clothes pegs,

I am just about to make some Plum Sauce, I bought some frozen duck breasts, we shall have them tomorrow together with the sauce, noodles and stir fried broccoli.

No workman today, I assume that Kyriacos knows as he is both our landlord and their employer. The water supply is back to normal

A quick :wave: :wave: .

Sounds as though things are turning a corner for you jrc :hug: :hug:

Someone once sent me a supposedly T&T recipe for mini savoury muffins to take to pot luck events etc., which I followed to the letter. They looked delicious but stuck to the cases horribly and were not very exciting to eat. ( I assume we are talking about American-style 'muffins'). I don't get on well with American muffin batters really and prefer good old British cake, scone or yeast recipes ;) . I'd be interested to see your recipe Rats, if you say it works I know it will. jrc - I hope that yours were :chops: :chops: :chops:

Sue - just realised you have the handymen in to fit your shower screen amongst other things! So much nicer than attempting it yourself! It will all look lovely when done.

Suffs - sorry to hear about DD - I know nothing of the condition but thought it could be operated on to improve matters. It sounds as though that is an unwelcome last resort :(.

Last nightshift tonight - yippee! A nice long break starts tomorrow - of course there are umpteen chores to do and a garden to clear up :(.

We had a good trip to Bastia, the old port was full of character. A quick visit to Le Clerc and a picnic on a beach on the way back to our accommodation. The aromas from the kitchen smell amazing, I am wondering if it will be sanglier ?

On the way out to supper last night we saw a HUGE boar cross the road in front of us! Then 2 younger ones on the way home !

Just one other snippet.... there are kiwi's growing here at I Fundali !!!! Never seen them growing fruit before.

:wave: :wave: Yoo hoo ... I bet nobody has noticed that I haven't posted since yesterday morning ;)

That's because yesterday I was on the cookery course that my good friend (who I am doing the informal dinner party for) bought me for my 70th birthday ... The Cooking Academy is only a 10 minute drive away from where I live and the (private) house backs onto Moor Park Golf Course. I chose the Nutritional Class but with hindsight, the tutor didn't tell me anything I didn't already know (although not the same can be said for a couple of the other participants :rolleyes: ) I think I would have benefitted more from Chinese, Thai or Indian cuisine, but I came away with some nice recipes and delicious dishes... I may just treat myself to an Indian course another time (a snip at £120 a day ! ;) :o :lol: )

In fact the main dish of Moroccan Spiced Fricassee of Chicken with Butternut Squash and Chickpeas is going to replace my original plan of Pulled Pork for the dinner party .. I think I may as well let my friend benefit from what I learned/cooked yesterday. Other dishes were Roasted Sea Bass with Red Peppers an Olives and a delicious salad to go with this of Green Lentil, Chicory and Pomegranate Seeds with Feta Cheese.

I was mildly surprised at the ignorance shown by a couple of other participants... Our tutor advised that there is no need to peel veggies, simply scrub them as most of the goodness is just under the skin. One lady queried whether this would be OK for veggies she grew herself on her allotment where she used horse manure and the land frequented by rabbits :rolleyes: I commented that both horses and rabbits are herbivores.... then another girl was worried how she could be sure the chicken in the fricassee was cooked right through (this was boneless thighs cut into chunks, sautéed off before being simmered in a stock with cubed BNS for 30 minutes) .. she also asked where she could buy said thighs. She was also worried about the fish dish (fillets) being cooked after 10 minutes in a hot oven . she admitted to never cooking meat as she lived alone, only eating meat and fish in restaurants. .. ..

Good evening everyone,
I've had a bit of a frustrating day - my loo is still not flushing 100% :sprout: , when my son is up at the weekend I'm going to get him to hoick the pressure washer out of the garage and see if a good blast with that solves the problem!

Then as the weather was dry I decided to do some gardening, popped into the greenhouse so what was needing picking to discover my toms had started with blight :x so my kitchen is now full of toms in varying stages of ripeness and the plants are binned. Consequently I'm shattered so it was lovely to get a call from friends to say they were in Troon and did I fancy a fish supper? It was lovely to see them and the fish & chips were lovely :)

Moira, I have also suffered with flour weevils, and bought the Lakeland ' lock' boxes. They are great...but I did still get a few weevils in; it maybe better to start again completely from scratch with new flours, bicarbonate etc. Touch wood, I haven't had any weevils for about a year or more now. :D

We went to Le Puy in the summer and I was determined to buy local lentils - but the 'tourist' prices put me off.

Still a great place to visit. I'd like to go again when we have more time to just meander....

Patsy: I know what you mean about some people's food ignorance. When I go to Moon's Vietnamese cookery classes I am amazed at what some people do not know, there are also things like using locally grown red and green peppers instead of imported Dutch peppers. As for using Fish sauce :o

Good morning all. I am loving this beautiful and unpredictive autumn weather. They are reporting frost on the weather for this weekend! I love wrap up warm weather and luckily have no outdoor plants to have to worry about. We still have sunshine here alongside the chilliness.
I am picking up my new prescription glasses today. An eye test after three years shows quite a bit of deterioration especially in the right eye where there is apparently a large scar affecting my eyesight probably caused by an eye infection. I can't wait to be able to read, watch TV and drive and actually see what I am doing. Mum should be bringing my food processor and as many cookery books as she can carry from storage. Should be a productive day!
Have fun!
Happy Halloween......whoo

Might go to our local beach today for a swim and sunbathe and read. I am over half way through Red Dwarf and find myself laughing out loud at times. We are now running out of reading material and Mr. Z. has resorted to a fortnight old edition of the W/e Financial times !!

Morning everyone :wave:

Very cloudy here clearly Zosh is using up all the sunshine!

Pat the point about the Bourssin is to provide some soft fat content, I do make a version with harder cheese but I add mustard, about a tbsp. You could also substitute a spoonful of chutney for the mustard and some grated onion for the cheese.
They are really very adaptable and if you do full sized ones make super picnic food.

The new fridge is to be delivered on Thursday which gives us timeto organise olivier to help and me to work out the logistics

We listened to reports of the Parson's Green event on the radio, luckily no one seems to have been seriously injured, a lot of them seem to have been injured in the ensuing confusion at the Tube Station.

I wish that I knew what the men were doing up there on the roof.

Just had my lovely friend from Kent on the phone to thank us for her birthday flowers. She's the lady who used to have her own GP practice but was diagnosed with MS some 25 years ago. They were on their way to a posh fish retaurant in Folkestone so if anyone happens to be there please giev her a wave from me :wave:

Olivier has also rung to say he'll be here on Tuesday to play chess with the fridges, giving us the chance to repaint the alcove ready for the new one.

Have a lovely time Seatallen!!

Slept better this morning than any other day this week - typical when I can go to bed tonight (and will!). I would really like to veg out on the sofa all afternoon and watch catch up TV and eat things but there is only healthy food in the house I need to go and queue at the council offices for a parking permit for my new car and go and post a card. The council offices are dire but it is easier to do that than do it online as you have to fill in numerous forms and scan proof of residency and send the old permit back to get a rebate etc. The walk will do me good.

:hug: :hug: :mug:

Thank you for the muffin recipe Rats - will try it sometime and hope I have more luck with it.

The workmen have gone, they were here until 4 00pm, most unusual as most Cypriot workmen knock off at 1 30 pm on Fridays. I spent sometime giving them glasses of water, I never begrudge anyone water.

Hello everyone ... I'm home :D and very pleased to report that DD's injected hand is much less swollen and painful ... she's doing as she's been told and is resting it ... we went to Sainsbugs and filled the trolley with meals that don't require a cook's intervention, other than to put them in the oven so when she returns to work next week she can rest her hands in the evening. Fingers crossed that the improvement continues.

Wakey Wakey ! Where are you all !!!! I thought I was late? It must be nearly time to go home, it is overcast and cloudy today with a chance of a thunderstorm....... A reading day I think, maybe under the large porch we have here.
