This week .. CW reminds me to eat two portions of fresh unprocessed fish per week as this gives me more Omega3 :drink:


Then the mag reminds me of a certain delicacy only to be found in France :cloud9: A "Paris-Brest". This chox bun .. topped with toasted almonds and filled with chocc0-praline. It was made in honour of the first Paris-Brest bike race in 1891... which was a ride from Paris to Brest and back again. The original riders wanted to win and not stop long for meals on this 750 miler.. so one patissier created the choux bun and made it shaped like a tyre and the choccy filling was supposed to represent the inner tube :lol: The topping with almond and the icing sugar was supposed to represent the tyre tread and dust from riding :lol:

The race is still held and the Paris Brest bun is still on sale at all patisseries of traditional repute .. per CW and my own perusal of such establishments whenevr I visit the country for quick and longr breaks. :lol:

Jazz hust phoned me asking what to do with gherkins///


Umm I have a marrow patch in the garden.. I have other members of this family there. I tend to pickle gherkins . basically they are "babt cumcumber" I pickle them in a mix of water/vinergar/shopped dill and peppercorns... clove ginger.. horseradish.. blackcurrant and balckberry leaves.,, ginger.. cinnamon sticks and so on.

If I have let them mature . then I treat like a stuffed marrow. and slice . scoop out the flesh.. mash it . stir fry with whatever . and then stuff into the hollow . serve on a bed of lettuce and various other salad goodies and . :bighand: :bighand: Enjoy"

Marrow? I stuff with mince/sage.. onions and .,.. served with onion or carrot gravy.. it becomes .. OOOOOOOOOFHHHHHHHHH! if you . err. know what I mean :lol:

In the same mag.. OK .. it makes my wee pink :lol: but what the heck. Now I know what fired the Swiss. Hmmm .. I thought.. oh never mind .. I just noted .. a "rose colour" in the gents. I was naive. I thought .. "lighint or light headedness" .. but enough of this somewhat chidlish crudity on my part :lol:

It seems that beettoot . especially that juice which I used to discard when boiling these beetroots.. would make me ride faster :banghead: To think I chucked that juice :banghead:

OK . I will now put a raw beetroot in my liquidiser. Strain and add the juices from my boiled beets .. anhd let you know if I pedal better and faster here. :lol:

To peel the chillies .. skewer them and roast in frying pan till skins blacken. Place in polythene bag and seal to steam off

Chop the onion put in bowl with the lime juice and rind.

Remove the chillies from the bag. Peel off the skins.. cut the stalks .. scopp out the flesh and chop .. put in another bowl.

Cut a cross in the tomatoes. Put in a bowl .. cover with boiling water Then plunge the tomatoes in cold water and remove the skins.

Dice the tomatoes Add to the chopped onions (which should have softened inthe lime juice. (if not add a little boiling water) Chope tha corainder and add.. with the chillies and the sugar. Mix well until the sugar has dissolved and all is coated in the lime juice. (Will keep in jar sealed with cling film in fridge for 4 days :wink:




Alternatively .. roast the tomatoes.. for a roast tomato salsa dip..

Or since avocados are also a wonder food.. how about Guacamole?


You need 4 toms.. 4 avocados.. juice of one lime.. 1 small onion.. 2 garlic cloves.. fresh coriander


Peel the tomaotoes as per above recipe. and chop them.

My other easy peasy recipe to give you K here :lol:

Side dish to serve with any roast fish/meat or roast veggie dish :lol:

You need 1.5 lb potatoes/ (Vrenchen uses King Edwards or Maris Piper for this one :wink: My own wife? whatever she bought reduced price :lol: )

tablespon Lurpak etc butter

cup dry white wine :cloud9: HIC!

cup veg stock .. OXO veg cubes . ooh CHEATY CHEATSTER me :lol:

lemon juice (we get Tesco value at 50p for big bottle :lol:

any chopped mixed herbs (seek out the reduced counter for any reduced :lol: ) We do /. Alice is never disappointed here. :lol:

chpo one or two leeks

OK .. cut the spuds into chunks and boil for 5 mins or so.7


Saute the chopped eeks in butter till soft

Place the par biled spuds and leeks in an oven proof dish.



Mix the wine and stock together .. pour over spuds and leeks.


Cook in 180 c oven till tender. enjoy :bighand:


CLAIRE .. Alice experimented . you can achieve in crock pot on/saucepan on slow hob burner.. :)

We think you can make this dish in your situation :wink:

This dish works well with any cooked or roasted meats and provides an essential K into diet. :lol:
