Welcome to Culinary delights and I hope that you find new recipes for you to try and submit some more of your own. Now, Banana Jam, I have never heard of that before and I love bananas so I will have to give it a try.

Ann in glos

I have sent a PM to you



AnninGlos Report 31 Aug 2009 14:55

Have replied Bridget, sorry, I was out all morning until 1.30pm


Valerie Report 31 Aug 2009 16:48

Hello Bridget,

Sorry I didn't realisethat Tennis Biscuits are a South African thing.

They are a square light crispy biscuit made with coconut, butter and syrup. We have a different brand here called Tea Biscuit which also has the coconut in.

Hope this helps.

Val in SA.

Val, The biscuits sound Yummy!!!

I am going out tonight for a delicious Lobster dinner with good dry white Wine. OH treating me as a surprise so no cooking for me tonight.

Have a good evening

Still VERY hot here and still NO RAIN, never thought that I would ask for rain!



AnninGlos Report 31 Aug 2009 17:41

Oh Bridget, I will think of you, I love lobster.


Valerie Report 31 Aug 2009 18:16

Lucky you Bridget, no cooking.
Enjoy the lobster.

The lobster was delicious, and I had a tropical salad as a starter, but did not need a desert. Lovely setting, outside the restaurant and very close to the sea, could watch people promenading before they settled down for their evening meal. The aromas were wonderful. We had our dinner somewhat early for Spain around 20.30 but as we left at 22.30 the restaurant was packed.

Will be back latter to add some recipes

Have noted that still no favourite 2 or 3 course meals....come on and let us know what you would choose as a very special meal.#

I am investigating the possibilty of having our recipes printed and sold to fund money for our folk in Afganistan. Please see my thread "Our folk in Afghanistan". Your comments will all be comsidered.

SpanishEyes Report 2 Sep 2009 12:26

Hello Everyone

I will not be able to be on here for a couple of days. eldest son who lives in Barcelona had surgery yesterday so have to sort a few things out for him. He is likely to be in hospital for a while.
I am sure you will all understand and will keep this going for all of us

Hi has anybody got any good receipe sugestions what to do with soft cherry Tomatoes

Ive just come in from picking the rest of my tomatoes (in the rain) but of course I have left them to long and alot of them are soft.

A very silly

Deb :(


AnninGlos Report 2 Sep 2009 17:53

Top of stove, stir fries are good, omelettes, bolognese, I am assuming you have recipes for these. best thing we ever did was buy a slow cooker, didn't cost much and so easy to produce a nice meal.

Use them in bolognese sauce, or casseroles, or simmer gently until soft to make into a sauce, cool quickly and freeze to add to stews.

Debbie K

Debbie K Report 2 Sep 2009 18:01

Thanks Ann

Stir fry tomorrow and I will make that sauce for the Freezer.

I bought a slow cooker last year but still in box. I must get it out and start using it ( I cant belive myself sometimes )



AnninGlos Report 2 Sep 2009 20:21

I put in the slow cooker, at about 9am.
4 chicken thighs, chopped mushrooms, cover with a jar of cooking sauce (whichever you like), cook on medium for about 45 minutes, turn down to low and we eat it with rice or potatoes and whatever veg (usually sweet corn heated in the microwave) at 7pm.

Also do the same with two pork chops. (sometimes make my own sauce with tinned tomatoes, wine and a little bisto to thicken)

Also cook mince with a tin of tomatoes, tomato puree and chopped mushrooms. same length of time but all on low. turn into bolognese with spaghetti or chile with rice, or cook the mince in curry sauce and serve with rice.

sending to the top so we don't get lost.

Debbie K Report 3 Sep 2009 09:09

Hi Ann

I bet that does taste nice cooking all that time, with all those flavours.

Im going to get mine out the box and start using it :)

Merlin Report 3 Sep 2009 13:31

Couple of other things which are useful. A Steamer and a Rice cooker.both a good investment.**M**.
