    Heaven forfend. You know that joke about the guy who didn't report the theft of his wife's credit card to the police because the thief was spending less than his wife had? That's me

    I bought a pestle and mortar a few years back. I have never actually used mine, though.
    I love the look of it on the kitchen windowsill, and I have a bit of a "dry grind" of it now and again because I love the noise and feel of it - makes me feel like a proper chef! Rather like my herb garden just outside the back door... but I only ever use the parsley, mint and chives!
    Then I go and buy a packet mix or a ready-made paste and cook with that. :p:p:p

    I don't recall ever having used one but fear the sound would go right through me like nails on a blackboard

    Nooo - it's an extremely satisfying sort of soft, grindy sound. Mine is unglazed ceramic, so it sounds a bit like stirring sand in a terracotta flowerpot with a wooden spoon. Glorious...

    Now I'm really hungry - GF stuffing.... Did you make it yourself? M&S and Sainsbury's are usually where I find mine.

    Well, I got a pack of chicken out to defrost to put chicken, mushrooms & leek in slow cooker to turn into pie for tea. Never got around to it so same ingredients, along with two stock cubes in half pint of water have gone in the oven....my last Charlotte spud finely sliced and spread about on top...I WAS going to say layer but you can't layer one spud....maybe if I'd sliced it with peeler....
    As I was walking Nina I noticed lots of blackberries but didn't stop to pick. My one apple isn't fully grown yet so will wait....thought s of crumble took me to Mum's fruit juice dumplings....can of blackcurrant pie filling was strained so it made a pie and the juice out in a pan with a cake like mixture of 4 "dumplings" ..drooling at the thoughts of them with thick custard..... "behave yourself Jan".......

    Just happy being me

    I think I am going to have to ignore this thread for a few hours until dinner time - it's just making me too hungry. Florida heat means no roast dinners and they don't do GF pies that I've found. Will be going out for a salad tonight - it did sound nice until the last few posts. :)

    No, it's from Tesco's Free From range, just 1.9g carbs per serving, (as opposed to 11.4g for Paxo) and it's really nice.

    We have one apple growing in our "orchard" (which comprises 3 apples, 2 plums and a pear tree, so far!), but the TTs already have their beady little eyes on it and are making regular growth checks, so I don't think I'm going to get much of a look-in this year. :meh:

    Thank you all for your anniversary wishes.
    Mrs Miggins and I had a great day and in fabulous sunshine. Got to our start point in Rosedale at 0930 so a full mornings walk of about 8 miles. The disused railway line in Rosedale is littered with derelict remains of 19thC iron mines and provides a good and interesting walking path. Excellent lunch at the White Horse Farm Hotel which gives good views over the valley. It's towards the bottom of Chimney Bank, one of the steepest roads in England.
    Happy anniversary to @jay hay-char for tomorrow, hope your day is a good one.
