    I don't know what they put in cat treats as they usually smell disgusting, but seem to be irresistible to cats! :grin:

    They have! Thank you... Only a little blurring left now.. If I stopped peering at my iphone and laptop to see what you're all up to I'd probably have clear vision... :)

    Set off from Riyadh at 4:30 this morning, home by nine, abandoned suitcases and bags and cooked bacon and eggs :) followed by almond bread spread with peanut butter and half a teaspoon of Turkish black cherry jam. I don't know why, or if, Turkish cherries are any different to any other cherries but the jam went down very well. Naughty.

    I've eaten raisin bread, porridge with sugar and a piece of donut because I was having low carb fatigue :) not to be recommended to others though! I'll be back to regular programming Tom :)

    I found the recipe for the Taramasalata! :) Here it is, just the way the Greek chef In Restaurant 21 in Athens wrote it for me...

    5 slices of toast bread (only the pith) :)
    200ml soda (I assume Bicarb)
    sunflower oil as much as it needs (approximately 600ml) we pour it step by step
    1 soup spoon 'taramas' (preserved fish roe) * I don't know why he put the star, he may have mentioned smoked cod roe at the time?
    1 lemon (the juice only)

    We put in the mixer/blender:
    bread
    soda
    lemon
    taramas
    We mix it until they homogenize (not too tough) - (and if you can spell that in Greek you're doing better than me!)
    then we start pouring the oil slowly slowly as the mixer keeps on working
    (as we make the mayo)

    That's it! It is the best taramasalata you will ever taste - I promise... It's not pink, either.. .:)

    Thank you!

    Now I just have to use trial and error to sub chia seeds for bread pith, and I am home and dry
    :D
    Will keep you informed of progress!

    bought myself a hudl2 (Tesco tablet) so when I go to bed I've got something bigger to see the forum/thread on than my tiny phone screen - plus I think my shoulder and right thumb will benefit greatly too. Its fast too as it has picked up my hub's 5G broadband which my lappy and phone can't see - they use the 2G. Soooo, ordered myself a 5G wireless dongle for my lappy - the internal wireless failed just post guarantee period and I've been using an old dongle (wouldn't have wanted to send it away with all the info I've got on it anyway)
    PS - apologies for totally Off-thread post

    naughty but nice and according to my GI/GL counter a tsp of "jam" is low for both....interesting but I do get away with it on my breakfast toast. I guess the the portion size is soooo tiny....

    Cool... don't think I can get roe here but will try it as soon as I get home... I wish my Greek was as good as the chef's English... :)

I'll have a dowager's hump before I know it... :oops:

    How do you cook your cauli? Do you steam it? I tried it in the microwave and didn't really like it.... there are so many tips and things I get a bit bogged down I think.... :(

    I do tend to steam cauli as it can get bit watery, but I have used frozen and just boiled it. I do make sure I leave it to drain well and then return to pan and pop on ring just to ensure it's dry before mashing.

    It surprised me rather too. Best way is to test it, see what happens....I'm surprised how little jam and marmalade can still be tasty - used to dollop it on...
