Better the day better the deed

Not a lot happening on the home front ,today !Maurice is working but will be home tomorrow and  Tuesday .He was off yesterday ,we went into Huntingdon and did some Christmas shopping .So before I start preparing this evenings dinner I will do a quicky entry .

Im going to cook a nice little two people ,gammon joint I bought in Aldis last week ! I have just been over to Rainbow (Coop)and bought some fresh brussels, well weve had a frost now ;the theory is they dont taste good till after theyve had a frost on them !!some carrots and  parsnips potatoes ,to roast and if I do enough boiled ones ,I can make a shepperds pie (if they are not all busy watching flocks or washing socks or whatever )ready for tomorrow after the computer class ,Oh DA.....SH  ;I meant to buy a small pot of whipping cream,and do some thing with some fruit and meringue nests,oh well tangerine jelly with tin of same ,and some icecream or evaporated milk maybe ?Yup !!for afters . 

Watching Strictly come dancing , last night I see Bianca /Patsy has gone in favour of James ,hence the sunday lunch menu I see James is already spoken for in journal land lol. So Ill cook my own dinner shall I ?Darren Gough was fiddleing with the collar off his dress shirt ,reminded me of my Dad telling me of a memory of his ......."when we were little they used to dress us up in these high stiff collars ,that you had to jump up to spit over "!!bless you Dad you were a character ,and we loved you so much .

      Have a happy blessed Sunday folks ...........Jan xx

The Sunday Lunch you are preparing sounds great, and you are right Sprouts never taste right until we have frost - I think that go'es for parsnips as well...As we can't all have James I'll have to prepare lunch as well..Have a lovely rest of Sunday....Ally

Ok, Jan..I looked  "gammon" up in my dictionary and it say's "ham"..is that correct?  I'm learning a whole new language here.  Brussel sprouts are ok but I prefer broccoli. So if you don't mind I too will join you and Maurice for dinner.  Be there in a blink of a cat's eye !  (I wish)  Linda in Washington state

Hello Jan,
Dinner sounds delicious! Hope you made enough...because it sounds like you will be having guests. LOL! I like brussel sprouts, parsnips and carrots. We are having frozen pizza for lunch. lol. Hope you enjoy your computer class tomorrow. And if there is any thing leftovers...and you do make your shepards pie...let me know. Sounds really good. Care to share the recipe?    ~Deborah

I hope you have enjoyed your Sunday dinner. Nice that Maurice is off tomorrow and Tuesday after working such odd hours.I love parsnips, Gill and Reg bought us some to freeze from their garden. We certainly did love "our Dad".......Love Jeanxx

mmmm.....dinner sounds yummy Jan!  I watched `Strictly` and taped the result, or so I thought...but when I went to watch it I`d taped the wrong side...was most annoyed so I went and had a look at the website.  I rather liked Patsy and Anton because he makes me laugh but i`m not really surprised she was voted off.  I hope Zoe and Ian win but I`ll bet it will be Colin and Erin. :o)

Hope you enjoyed the Dinner!
I also love Shepherds Pie - When Allan and I visited my American Penfriend, we cooked  it for them one Day while they were out - they loved it, and insisted I gave them the Recipe!

Glad to hear you enjoyed the dancing programme.

By for now,

John.

PS

The meal has set my mouth watering.

I was going to ask you what 'gammon' was and then I read one of your commenters that said it was ham.  I agree with the one that said they were learning a whole new language.  I love the vegetables, but ham isn't one of my favorite things.  Still the meal sound lovely.  Pennie
