Re: This year's gluts and failures

I think the problem with peel is mostly with the bought stuff, if it's not organic... Lots of pesticides on there. I use very little citrus fruit, but would probably eat/drink more if I could grow it myself! I've had a grapefruit sitting in my fruit bowl for almost a month... Only buy them when they...

Re: What Is For Tea?

Hopefully tonight I'll get home not too late and have enough energy to cook what I bought on Sunday - beef stew, mash and sprouts (the latter from the garden, and I think I still have some of my own tatties, too). And then it'll be the same the next two nights!

Re: Guilty pleasures

Cheese and chocolate, definitely.

I only overeat when I'm feeling rotten, though. Unfortunately, that's been most of the time recently. Lost a lot of weight without trying when the contract that's just coming to an end first started. I just need a job to feel human.

Hehe... Know your feeling. Here it comes from the South. :(

Hope it's going better now?!

Re: Someone say something

I planted daffodil bulbs along the driveway last fall. I really want the snow to melt so they can start growing. Most of our daffs are out already - and since they are grown commercially here, too, the country is starting to turn yellow... Where it's not daffodils, it's gorse and even some rape. As...

Re: What Is For Tea?

Yeah, I know... I use celeriac quite a lot - much more common in Germany than here! A popular vegetarian main dish is "celeriac Schnitzel": slice (about 1 cm thick), par boil, then turn first in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs, and fry. I've made them for a diabetic with Parmesan cheese ...

Re: Paper Making Tips

The home made paper I've seen tended to look very attractive, but be too rough for proper writing on... Let alone printing! I think it's probably viable for certain uses.

Re: What Is For Tea?

OK - so you cut them like chips? The baking in oven would definitely be out for me - costs far too much energy for a single portion. But I had been thinking of grating them and frying them in the pan (do that with tatties as well, very occasionally).

But the one thing that was hoped to be achieved and that I can't see happening - it'll be neither cheaper nor greener than using "ready made" paper...

Celeriac fries? How do you make them?

Re: Someone say something

Between being massively depressed because I'll be unemployed again as of end of next week and being very busy at work because I'm trying to get a few things finished before then (and yes, I shouldn't worry about that, not my problem...) I just don't feel like doing anything much... :( Should have do...

Re: bread

If I do make bread at all these days, it's a kind of sour dough - and that doesn't need kneading, either... Dough too sloppy for that, anyway.

Re: Monday washing day

My pots tend to float about in a corner of the garden, and get re-arranged every time a storm brews up... :)

(Yes, I do have a shed - but that's too full with other stuff!)
