Last night was nursery food, boiled eggs with soldiers!  Tonight will be roast lamb, roast potatoes, roast carrots & parsnips & red onions & garlic, brussels sprouts and gravy, followed by rhubarb crumble and custard.

Re: Whats For Supper?

We have hangovers, so I'm about to order Dominos...  wink Everyone else is going to the pub for Sunday lunch, but if I see any lager, I'll  puke

Am currently planning a quietly impressive dinner for some friends, I want to show off a little but nothing too over the top.  Any suggestions?

Re: Whats For Supper?

emmylu that cranberry citrus jelly sounds great... do you think i could get the recipe?  my wife, her parents and I go to a cranberry festival in the fall in northern ontario. We always come back with bags of fresh cranberrys and cranberry wine preserves etc. It would be nice to have another way to use them.

ham and eggs, fried mushrooms and toast tonight.

Re: Whats For Supper?

tonight we had Hot Legs and rice..  Chicken Drumsticks coated in a spicy paste and baked..   they are great grilled on the bbq as well..
My wife almost got lit up making it though, she mixed up one of my hot chili powders for regular chili powder. .. She  pulled out the Arbol chili powder to make it with.. After she made the paste she thought twice before putting it on the chicken and asked me. I laughed my butt off and gave her the chili powder mix and then used the paste with the arbol for myself..
Wow that had some good zing and great flavour  big_smile  big_smile  i opened the jar of garlic and onion chutney i bought a few months ago and it was the perfect thing to go with it  mrgreen
