  • Te he....my first Valentines card from OH was only given to me after I’d been sent a dozen red roses from someone else!

    OH’s ‘card’ was actually 2 pieces of loo paper folded like a card with a red heart drawn on in biro


    sounds a lovely idea gf ..go for it! ( the alternative might be cut out a large paper heart, place it on top of the cake,then sieve icing sugar over the top and remove the paper?)

    • A card made of loo paper after a dozen roses from someone else? He must have been feeling really confident.
      Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

          • Well I did make the Victoria sponge yesterday and filled it with blackberry jelly. I decided to use a template and icing sugar for the heart theme. Of course I over complicated it! I used greaseproof paper, cut a heart shape out and then also cut little hearts out of the heart. I sieved icing sugar over (maybe a little too much). As I carefully lifted the template off my hand slipped and it all smudged. Another artistic failure......but it tastes good!
            Today will be yesterday's leftovers. More of the roast chicken and fried up veg with gravy. More cake.

            • All this talk of cake here and on the chatback thread. Now I'm really hungry and it's a long time to lunch...

              Lunch: rest of the chicken dopiaza with some spicy veg of some variety; orange for afters.
              Supper: veg soup; yogurt and blueberries.

              Pork goulash for the freezer.

              • Pancakes for dinner I guess. I'm thinking banana pancakes or alternatively with the last of the canned apple sauce.

                Though confusingly we'd be having doughnuts today in Germany (which are called pancakes/Pfannkuchen in some parts)

                • Interesting Melanie!

                  In France pancakes are eaten in 2nd Feb for the Fête de la Chandeleur .
                  I was busy dieting then, so I’ll make up for that tonight!!!!!

                  • Finally decided what to make

                    Main course buckwheat pancakes wrapped around a spicy salmon, white bean and sweet corn mix and lightly baked in the oven with a cheesy tomato sauce.

                    Pud is bog standard pancakes with lemon juice and sugar.

                        • Odd kind of lunch, but I enjoyed it: pork goulash with stir-fried Brussels sprouts with cinnamon and cloves; Greek yogurt and honey for afters.

                          Supper: veg soup; apple for afters.

                          • Today smoked cod baked in milk for my husband, lamb steak with mint sauce and gravy for me, potatoes dauphinoise, carrots and french beans.
                            Last time we had the identical meal I just managed to stop my husband pouring lamb gravy unthinkingly over his smoked cod.
