    Hi all, absolutely freezing today, didn’t help being out trapsing through the pumpkin patch but it was a lovely day.
    Coffee with cream first thing, no breakfast, not feeling hungry plus didn’t have anything suitable
    Lunch at the farm, I went for the homemade soup, it was lovely, sweet potato and parsnip, Cappuccino
    Almond milk cappuccino when I got home, drove through a sleet shower and a temp showing 3❄️
    D beef burger, celeriac chips and a fried egg

    Thanks @jayney27 I think I bore it all with great fortitude - the day and the 34 years:angelic: Hope the motorway madness and washing didn't take the gloss off your amazing holiday . Sorry the pumpkin adventure was a little cold.

    Evening all
    @ianpspurs your anniversary dinner sounds fabulous, must have cheered you up after your cold wet dog walk.

    I managed to avoid being out in the wet, but did get pretty cold.

    B: Mushroom and cheese omelette. Coffee and cream

    L: wasn’t going to have any but felt a snack attack coming on so had 2 chicken drumsticks with a spoonful of homemade mayo. More coffee then about 20g Montezumas black then a handful of walnuts so I didn’t quite stave off the snacking.

    D: DD chicken provencal ( basically a traybake with garlic, thyme, tomatoes, olives) and green salad with mayo.

    I find the solution is to make sweet things I don't like and give them away! Yesterday was the Rocky Roads today stuffed rice krispie , marshmallow and peanut butter slices. I loath peanut butter but son, DIL and the grandsons love it (it's stuffed with Reeses peanut butter cups).

    Only 1 week? - Julie manages 53 a year:angelic: Thanks for the good wishes - hoping to see if Lidl have a cheap (frozen) goose for Martinmas as I love the old traditions and idea of starting advent that early. Anyone know if Aldi have their wine advent calendar yet?

    The motorway madness is already a distant memory, the washing mountain is diminishing as I type, my holiday will live in my memory for ever, I hope, it was wonderful, our next one is booked and nothing would keep me from spending time with my beautiful grandchildren, we were all frozen but I think I felt it the most having spent 10 days in glorious sunshine and temps in the low 30’s :)

    Happy Anniversary Mrs & Mrs @ianpspurs .

    @maglil55 - I picked up the Lidl Christmas drinks programme booklet the other day. It "inspired" me to make a Gingerbread Gin infusion last night, then as that got going (in the SV bath) I decided to do the same with vodka.

    I have filtered and bottled both now, although I haven't tasted the drinks, I did eat one lot of the infused ginger. Fabulous! Not quite gingerbread flavour, as I sort of made that up, a on the spur of the moment, so a work in progress.

    Thankee kindly ma'am. I am sure you must have given the info before but is there a source to give temps and times for infusions or just guess?

    Bullet resistant coffee for breakfast.
    Lidl roll with rare beef (reduced from M&S) and a bowl of homemade soup for a late lunch.
    The rest of the beef in artisan sourdough for tea, with home grown cherry tomatoes.
    You didn't ask about drinking, did you? {cough}

    The geese were in the freezers today. Didn't check the price though - sorry. Most of their Christmas range is in.

    Thanks. We have a proper fresh one ordered for Christmas but I am making an effort to go back to old traditions and goose at Martinmas appeals to me - idea of a feast to end the agricultural year and start Advent early.

    Bed 6.1 FBG 6.4. Starting to stabilise again thankfully. Physio did a good job on my left leg and ankle yesterday. Still fairly loose but I need a couple of painkillers a day. Boys swimming starts again tomorrow but they're off on a spooky bug hunt first at a National Trust property. Time to start catching up on ironing again too. Ate too much today though.

    B. 3 M&S 97% pork chipolatos, fried egg and 2 rashers crispy streaky bacon. Tassimo Americano grande with a dash of cream.
    L. After taking son shopping and doing my own more leftovers! Remains of the M&S honduran prawns, mozzarella pearls and the tuna, beans and red onion.
    D. Usual cold cuts - slice each roast pork, ox tongue and Turkey with 1/2 slice ham. Sweet potato chips and coleslaw.
    Also gave into a grenade bar and 5 strawberries.

    Also thankfully had a good night's sleep as Inspector Rebus seems to have gone!

    When I did my first, I had a look around. There are quite a few sites "talking" about it.

    https://recipes.anovaculinary.com/recipes/cocktails-beverages
    https://www.sousvidetools.com/toolshed/the-sous-vide-christmas-drinks-guide/

    The times and temperatures vary enormously, so I just sort of do my thing. To be clear, mind have all been clear spirit, and I haven't done anything involving cream, life pretendy Baileys, which would influence things.

    Now, to be honest, I tend to go for 70c for between 2 and 3 hours, depending how intense I want to make the flavour. For example, my Ginammon I give 3 hours, and that is intensely flavoured, but then fr that, like most things, I'll dilute with a mixer or additional base spirit. I haven't made any large batches, but I'll likely do a couple of things for Crimbo gifts, for friends who have enjoyed their tasters. I just need to source some nice little bottles. :)

    It's been a load of fun, and there's plenty alcoholic fruit in the freezer for deserts with icecream or cream.
