I like it nice and quiet. I am making a beef casserole, with herby dumplings, (thank you, that'll do) and roast potatoes. Followed by Christmas pudding or Tarte citron with cream, the proper double (whipped sort). Would you like red wine or rose with that, or something strongerer to start with?
Don't talk about food....hmmm.....done the tidying up and have lots of food in to make a nice meal later - the kids are being taken to a Panto by my parents......so a bit of Peace and quiet for a few hours...whooooo !!
Its from a very old recipe book. I don't think I am the best person to give advice on cookery. Chuffy must have been peeking into my dining room.
They were OK, but a weensy teensy bit on the solid side . You might prefer to ask Graham56, as he likes his with leeks etc. Or Arch, or Spandex or lots of other peeps. I think I am a bit heavy-handed with things like pastry etc, and it turns out a bit dense, rather than fluffy.
