Talking about food, here is one to try:
Chop up and boil equal amounts of carrots and parsnips, put them in a bowl, add a pinch of black pepper,a knob of butter and mash well.
I have given this to someone who hated parsnips, but asked for a second helping of this!

Another thing you can do is add about 10% of leeks to your cabbage, boy does it liven the cabbage up!

Cookyr - as my other half is blind, she's not allowed in the kitchen (sharp knives) and I make a Sunday roast every week. I buy Icelands frozen beef joint for a fiver and slow roast it in the oven for 4 hours at 140 degrees. She likes it so much that she arranged with her friend to come and have luch here. Now I have 3 to cook for!!

My menu:
Roast beef & yorkie puds
Roast potatoes and parsnips
home grown vegetables.

Pudding - right now it is Strawberries and Cornish ice cream.

AWW man all this talk of roast lamb is making me pine for a nice shoulder of lamb to get my teeth into, its been sooooo long since I've had any I've forgotten what it tastes like.. But it will be a very, very, long time before I get one. SWMBO doesnt like lamb an if she dont like we, meaning me, dont have it.[:(][:(][:C][V]

One day tho, one day, up early go to the butchers back and roast it before she gets home mwahahah, cough, cough, choke, splutter
