I am desperate to get some work done. I am in tomorrow evening so I might be able to get a wriggle on then.
Tonight the OH has dined on Steak from Lidl and he reckons its some of the best steak he has ever eaten. Was a rib eye.
Me I have had a crab pate sandwich and trifle.
We have a herb roasted stuffed chicken for tea tomorrow evening together with lots of veggies. I am hoping that there will be some meat left on the bone so that I can get either a chicken curry or a cream of chicken soup on the go as a bonus meal or two utilising the carcass to make chicken stock. I also bought some spinach today which I intend to use for home made pizza on Friday evening together with some fried onions, goats cheese, ordinary strong cheddar some tomato slices and spinach oh and a little garlic.
And in the meantime I have ordered a couple of items that should make my life easier when it comes to food canning/bottling. I have ordered one of these which in effect is a giant hot water bath for preserving fruits. I am still after the proper canner which I intend to purchase in due course but thought in the interim this would help me a lot and save all the struggling on the top of the cooker. This together with my baby steriliser for bottling juices etc should make my life a lot easier and enable me to process more than I have been doing. I purchased it from Amazon for those interested here is a link to the details. It has a thermostat and a timer.
I have also ordered the fruit extraction unit to go on top. Hopefully they should be with me tomorrow.
