  1. Today I made an experimental soup. Potato, spring onion, green garlic and wild garlic. It was surprisingly good.
  2. My daughter has applied to have some Ukrainan refugees. She found that our neighbour is hosting a family. They put Mary in touch with the sister of the lady they are having. My daaughter has invited the Lady who is at present in a hotel in Italy, but has fo be out in about a week. It will be a woman and her 17 year old son, Thy are JWs which should be a challenge We had a visit ffrom the local authority earlier in the week, to see if the accommodation is sitable. They have to have a criminal Records check, but they probably won't need that as they have to have them for church as they work with children. She didn't mention us as we live in an annexe, but we have them from our previous church as we worked with old people and sometimes children.
  3. Chipolatas with McCain Home Fries and watercress.
  4. Yesterday I had Hot and Sour soup followed by lambs liver and, bacon and onions in gravy with mashed potato. Not sure what I am ha ing this evening. My wife has been on a strict diet for the last 2 days as she has an endoscopy tomorrow. As she is a vegetarian the only things she has been able to eat are eggs, cheese, white bread and peeled potatoes. From midday today she has not been allowed to eat anything.j
  5. Lamb is expensive here as well. I usually buy leg steaks. They are about the same price as chops but without the bone so you get more meat for your money. They also do lamb rump steaks but they have a lot of fat on them. My daughter usually gets her meat from the local butcher shop and it is more expensive there. I get my groceries online now as I am no longer allowed to drive. The meat I got was diced lamb but is is very fatty. I don't use the same store each week. I use 3 or 4 different stores depending which ones have the best offer each week. We get our milk delivered from a local dairy farm and our eggs from the egg machine on a local poultry farm. My daughter is going there at the moment and I hope she is getting me some eggs. They only do 2 sizes, mixed weight in boxes of a dozen or trays of 30 or 6x30. They also do meat and apple pies all made locally and various other goodies.
  6. I will be having a small steak, home fries and onion rings, tomorrow it will be slow cooked lamb bourguignon.
  7. I don't like pork. Today we had a family Chinese take away to celebrate my birthday which was actually last Monday. My daughter and her husband have applied to house a Ukrainian refugee family. They are hoping to be able to have Christians preferably Baptist, but it may not be possible to choose. On another non related point. Is there anybody on the board who is near Tampa, FL and if so could they visit somebody in hospital. He is disabled and visited the US over two years ago and he and his wife contracted c Covid while he was there and became seriously I'll. He owns a local disability store locally here. Here is a YouTube video for you. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3ajY-xEw6ZU
  8. I have not met any Evangelical churches that call themselves Protestant. I have been in Baptist churches that call themselves Protestant. Most of all of them would be called reformed.
  9. Our pastor preached on the Ten Commandments about a month ago. I did read recently that many churches in the past had the ten commandments on the wall behind the pulpit, five on each side.
  10. There was a report recently that Russian POWs have been told that when they get home, they will be shot. They said that their families have been told to arrange funerals for them. Our church is arranging collections of food and warm clothing and blankets for Ukraine into be sent to Poland by the Barnabas fund and money to be sent to Ukraine churches by a Unkrainian church in London..
  11. Yesterday I did two French style dishes. Duck pot au feu for me and vegetable potée for my wife.
  12. Our former foster son came to visit us as he was over from USA for his grandfather's funeral. I did chicken and Dijon style potato gratin. He said he always loved my Dijon potatoes. It is over 20 years since I saw him and i don't think i have done it since. I did it again the day before yesterday and had the leftover today, with chicken, leek and lentils in gravy.

  13. My wife and I have been invited out to lunch after church tomorrow, so I don't know what we will have.
  14. Our milk is delivered directly from the farm. They deliver it in the evening, so we get that morning's milking. The egg machine is really good as it has local meat pies as well as apple pies hone made quiche and Kentish cream teas, etc. When I go shopping I go on my mobility scooter and I can go round on that. Some stores have scooters that customers can use. If it is a store with narrow aisles such as Aldi I take a trolley and lean on that, as that support's me. i mostly get to Aldi as it is my nearest grocery store.
