    Was it me... or was Madonna flat? And as for that eye patch - what's that all about?

    I'm actually having Sunday dinner on Sunday this week.... yippee..... (unfortunately this means that Mr C only gets one day off next weekend)

    Breakfast: usual Sunday brunch of bacon, egg, mushrooms, high meat content chipolatas, a couple of tablespoons of baked beans

    Lunch: Nothing

    Dinner: very slow roast beef brisket, cauliflower, sprouts, broccoli, few pieces of carrot and roast parsnip maybe a Yorkshire pudding depending on what my BG is like at the time

    Dessert: Strawberries (no cream - I've decided I don't like cream with fruit)

    Drinks: BDC, SSW, RW, CFDC

    Bed 6.3 FBG 6. Just enjoying a little bit of peace and quiet before heading off to swimming lessons with the boys. Hubby already gone to the last league match of the season so I made the mistake of watching some of the Sunday politics programmes. Why oh why are they allowed to get away with not answering questions? I include all politicians in this. We're lucky we still have a TV. So much for quiet time.
    B. TAG with ADOC. 2 slices of the new brot toasted with sliced tomato and grated cheese and a boiled egg.
    L. Will be at swimming.
    D. I'd decided on fish but purchased a selection with no clear idea at the time what I would do with it - I just knew this was fish that goes together. Finally came to a decision. Will do sole fillets stuffed with prawn, scallops and a salmon/bassa/parmesan puree to bind. Oven baked with a white wine/lemon butter sauce. Will serve with samphire, spinach and rustica mushrooms. Hubby can have Jersey royals with it.
    I've not been put off SF jelly so jelly, raspberries and a little of Morrisons LC ice cream to follow.
    Usual campari and soda and I may have a wee prosecco as the boys are off school tomorrow for an "in service" day.
    @Chook - I thought she was flat at times too and makes too much effort to be controversial for the sake of it.
    @Tipitoo - since Peter Parker is still in residence on my phone app front page, Question - I think it's a huntsman although the huntsman I have seen in Australia have been more hairy and darker. It does seem to have the stripes on it's legs though. Q2- is it alive? It has a kind of desiccated look about it? Still don't fancy it BBQ'd or deep fried though.

    In terms of the second recipe there, if anyone has a source of Thai or Holy basil in UK ( I know of one, but it's eyewateringly costed), please let me know.

    I have a couple of packs of seed, but not too immediate!

    I think I've seen it in Waitrose, but probably expensive. Best bet would probably be an Asian supermarket / ethnic foods store, if you have access to one.

    I'd seen in on there @maglil55 , but with delivery it comes to £5, which seems somewhat disproportionate.

    I'll just have to get organised with the seeds, as it is so different from our standard basil.

    @BibaBee - Last I was in HO, looked a the local Korean place, but no joy. To be fair that was on a Monday and there wasb't much fruit and veg at all.

    I'm in HO some time this week, and want to pick up some more Kimchi, so will look again.

    Completely agree. Mea culpa. I’m just embarrassed that I should be caught derailing over such an ignominious topic!

    Try an ethnic supermarket. The Turkish one I go to in Sheffield sells several different types in huge bunches for £1 each along with various types of coriander and other herbs - including some I've never heard of.

    Hi all. I must be the only one on this thread that wasn’t watching Eurovision last night.

    OMAD day today, combined with a long canal walk and far too much shopping. Wasn’t meant to be buying clothes, but.......at least I did get what I went for - my Dad’s 80th Birthday presents - too.

    My food app is knowingly telling me that ‘eating beef helps keep you on track’. Won’t argue with that. Dinner was oxtail. Was running low on bones so threw in a piece of bone marrow from Waitrose. Delicious combination with a very rich gravy: enough of that left for another couple of meals. Followed by extra thick Jersey cream - @Chook reverse of yours: cream, no fruit (or anything else).

    No IP here either. I use an old fashioned slow cooker - 11 hours on low. Stuck some meat juices from a previous meal, some bones and bone marrow in and put the oxtail on top (having seared it first). Simple and delicious. Hadn’t eaten it myself until a few weeks ago. Now I’m in love!

    Guess it would also work in the oven in a casserole dish with the lid on. Probably wouldn’t need to cook as long, but never tried that way. Sure one of the more experienced cooks on here would know - @DCUKMod @maglil55 @Brunneria @shelley262 (hope I haven’t offended anyone by not including them).

    Give it a whirl.
