Anyone made any this past week or so? OH did last week and is so chuffed with himself. Have to say they were good. He did not cheat with a tin of pumpkin but bought the real thing.

I've made both in the past, and bonfire toffee, but not at home last week to make any of them.

You been on your hols again Julia?? :-(

Yes, I'm afraid so, Ann.

Monday evening to Saturday dinner.

They are now on the Autumn/Winter menu, and I have to say, it does not get any better. You would have thought the amount of times I have been there, I would have taught that chef to cook properly. LOLOL

I have made both recently.

They are not very hard to do, not if I can make them.

I make sweet potato soup, haven't made pumpkin soup since I found the sp one!

A real "stick to your ribs" one

Next time you go in Julia - after meal time, ask for the Head Chef/and or Catering Manager.

It may not do much good but you will feel better for it!
