Dear Doris, we enjoy everything you do! We do have some wonderful gardens, and indeed some great food! If only people knew about it. You are lucky as you do, and I would love to bring it to the attention of everyone else. Hopefully in the spring, I will show a few more people the wonders of our gardens, and food!
I cannot make a; pancake, a Christmas Pudding or a cottage pie now, without thinking, or indeed saying, "this one is for Doris."
We are having sausage, mash and onion gravy tonight, a simple British Classic dish. What is wrong with that?
Regards.
Neil.

Growing up as I did, with an English father who was true to the tradition of English cooking (as much as he was able), I got several basic dishes he did. He was really a "meat and potatoes" man! Very basic foods.
I learned Scottish cooking when I got much older.
We had "Farmer's Carrot Pudding" for Christmas - a suet pudding with carrots and potatoes ground up; stewed fruit for desserts; creamed turnips, potted meats, custard pies, etc.
I'm getting "back to the basics" myself. Today I'll make my homemade soup - veggie & beef. Drooling
