    I used to grow Jerusalem artichokes but for some reason lost my crop. I used to pickle them. How do you use them.

    You never know if you did have it or not but glad you are feeling better though.

    i normally steam or roast them or occasionally make soup. I've never heard of pickling them. Do you have a recipe for it?

    Mr Bean does cooking day 7 or 8 - lost count really. Breakfast: Sweetened TWAM - 3 x 700 mls ; Dockey: CWC: L: h/b egg and avocado salad and grated cheddar; Chocologic Belgian choc; Aft: Tea; Meal: Duck (cook in bag; press temp, minute minder, ok and chillax , take out of bag, up the temp to crisp , reset then leave to stand) - what has the duck done to need to relax?; broccoli, cabbage and gravy - veggies = complicated as you need to wash, chop,steam and watch somewhat; then make gravy using fat/juices from the duck - blow that for a game of soldiers; Vit C powder drink. @maglil55 by the time that fridge needs replacing newer models will make that one look prehistoric.

    Hi All
    Today’s food was thin cut slice from brown FS bloomer toasted. Lunch was meant to be soup but by the time I got the Click & Collect fortnightly shop back SAFELY and unpacked item by item antibac wiping each and into the hall, handwashing as I went through it all (Mr PM opened up the route from front door to hand washing) I was utterly spent so lunch was two tiny Helmsley seeded rolls buttered and two mugs of tea.
    Supper tonight is breaded mini fillets for Mr PM with chips and fishfingers and brocolli for me.

    @Chook and @Annb glad to hear you are better, @maglil good to hear you are a little better. Hope you can all take things slow and easy.

    Ann, I wonder if the form you, or Neil, needs is online to download and print? Many, many are.

    Evening all.

    Another day of stress consumption!

    Morning saw rather too much 95% chocolate mixed with cream. Lunch was 2 fried eggs, some streaky bacon and grated cheese. Dinner was slow cooked lamb breast followed by a lc hot chocolate. Perhaps one of those high tech fridges could come with the ability to programme how often it can be opened!

    Editing to add the forgotten about 3 (small) packs of cheesies :D

    Most of day written off trying to make decisions about how best to help 89 year old mum who had a fall last night. She isn’t badly injured she damaged her foot - sounds like a soft tissue injury/small bone when she fell over on her foot. She didn’t ring her falls service as she didn’t want to be carted off in an ambulance - I told her that would have been unlikely in current situation! We’ve decided to wait and see how it goes and are hoping she rests and improves. If not, a 120 mile emergency trip up north will be needed to take care of her - we’d have to pick her up and shelter her at ours. If she needs care our view is that we would be a safer option but who knows? She’s managing drinks etc today so feel wait and see is most sensible just now. In normal times we would be in Yorkshire already! Difficult times make fairly minor injuries like this much more complex. Will review tomorrow. Rang Age UK who were very helpful and are also going to talk to her.
    Snacky food today whilst stressing including
    2 Lc hm granola bars
    1 Lc cheese scone
    Halloumi fries and pork
    2 boiled eggs
    1 Hc chocolate- from an Easter treat pack, raided a bit early! Felt needed treats today....... we can only do our best

    Sorry to hear about your mum and the added stress. Definitely a day for treats but very restrained. Well done on that.

    Apparently not. I couldn't find it, if there is, nor could Neil and he is much better at finding things than I am. His brother will go in to the town PO for us.

    @Chook - I recall you having some discussion about garden plants this summer?

    I'e just had an email from Nextdoor, in which someone linked to one of our local garden centres, who are doing free home delivery for orders over £30. The range is limited and is mainly bedding, plugs and hanging baskets, but not unreasonably priced.

    I guess they're trying to salvage what they can from their hard work in recent months.

    That particular garden centre is owned by Dobbies these days, so maybe other Dobbies location could be doing something similar?

    Thanks for thinking of me but I'm surrounded by a sea of miniature plug plants (I didn't know something so small could be called a plant). I rather over did it on eBay. :meh:. My beloved Brigg Garden Centre is closed for the duration - i don't know where I'm going to get my usual black Russian cherry tomato plants.

    Just to say i know there are much much worse things to worry about nowadays and my heart goes out to all those suffering with this horrible disease and their loved ones. And especially to @ianpspurs and Julie and to @shelley262 and her lovely Mum.

    Breakfast 6.45am CWC.
    Made nut granola, without sunflower seeds. Somehow misjudged the amount of oil needed, so added three heaped tablespoons of oats to absorb some of it. Must remember it's now low carb, not no carb
    7.30ish portion nut granola, splash of milk.
    8.30ish 2 eggs scrambled with butter. CWC
    Mid morning CWC
    Lunch. Leftover dinner (bacon, peppers, mushrooms in carbonara sauce from lidl. 4.5g carbs per 100g) with cauli rice. Added chopped mushroom stalks to the cauli rice.
    Tea and water to drink.
    Dinner. Chicken breast, cabbage, carrots, roasted celariac for me, oven chips for him, did snaffle a few. Chunk of petit
    Brie, surprisingly different to the larger version. Several glasses of wine for stress relief. Followed by several chunks of chocolate for the same purpose. Will soon be out of chocolate altogether. One of MrSlims biscuits with my bedtime tea.
    Building etc. has picked up pace now. MrSlim has spent three days finishing the new dormer window, refurbishing the original as well. Putting up the neccessary scaffold is slow and hair raising. We discovered one supporting pole had bent when the scaffold collapsed in the gales, so it wasn't quite as stable as usual. We had to move the whole edifice three times,
    but now both windows are waterproof and looking good. The ridge repair is more complicated and he cannot get the materials needed to do it properly - so temporary measure - hook the roof ladder over the loose bit to hold it in place and stop it flapping/falling next time there is a gale.
    My new veg bed is completed. Last metre was very stony and really hard work digging. Good thing I started the other end. Have already planted some parsley there. Plan is to have wigwams of beans as well.
    Repotted some baby tomato plants and mange tout. Did an hour on the chop saw so firewood supply looking healthier now. Cut the long parts of the grass. Raked up the cuttings. So many it looked like a hayfield.
    Tomorrow more training for me. Need to learn to operate the log splitter and how to fuel the mower. Apparently its not a simple operation. If weather is kind will be bbq.
    MrSlim has not been out for three weeks. I went shopping three days ago. Got gas and compost. Am planning to ride my bike to the village shop sometime soon. Fresh bread for mrslim. Also building up goodwill. We used to eat at their restaraunt, but ofc that is closed now.
