15 Feb, 2010

 

My mum used to make crisps and toffee, being a typically ungrateful child, I preferred shop bought. Not now though, these look delicious:-)

15 Feb, 2010

15 Feb, 2010

Thanks , Janey you will have to remind Ian as to how good they were he might make some more !
Toto I will make some more specially for you . :o) , they were tasty Eileen ...
We will all be round on the 28Th Dawn , to sample the Sloe Gin ., I will bring the crisps ...LOL...
It's year since I had a crisp sandwich Bloomer , I had forgotten how tasty that is , we only ever like plain crisps can't think why they want to spoil them with silly artificial flavours .....

15 Feb, 2010

 

Nice one Amy, that's a good plan :-)

I agree, call me old fashoned but plain Ready Salted have to be the best.

15 Feb, 2010

amy
Amy

15 Feb, 2010

16 Feb, 2010

 

Toto to Dawn: message received and understood. Over.

17 Feb, 2010

 

Dawn to Toto: acknowledgement received ;-). Over.

17 Feb, 2010

 

We just had home made chips....never thought of making crisps, but so much tastier and cheaper too! Thanks for the idea. :-)

17 Feb, 2010

 

Brilliant Potty. Did you see Amy's recipe (a couple of months ago) for Leek and Potato soup? I made some, it was delicious

17 Feb, 2010

 

I did Dawn, and brought the leeks ready then they got used in a casserole. Must have a go, as that is a soup we like.

17 Feb, 2010

 

I've got some leeks in ..... maybe tomorrow I'll make some too :-)

17 Feb, 2010

amy
Amy
 

Well done Pg ... it's not difficult is it and they taste so good , you have to be careful not to put too many in at once .. . i'm lucky in that I have one of those deep fat fryers set into my work surface ...... Ha ha I did that as well Tony dug some leeks up for me to make soup and I used them for dinner instead , we had Liver and Bacon with the leeks , yummy ,, , Dawn Try not to use your leeks for something else , by the way if you are going into Lidols tomorrow they had some lovely big leeks in there for about 59p , make me wonder why we bother to grow our own .......:o)

17 Feb, 2010

 

Ha ha Amy, that's where I got mine from yesterday. I often wonder how they can possibly grow them for that price - sacrilege really.
Amy, can I come and live with you. :-) Your lifestyle is grand.

17 Feb, 2010

 

Good idea Dawn, you can live with Amy and I'll come and live in your house, (with the garden and cats of course)!

17 Feb, 2010

 

Its a deal Skillen. x

17 Feb, 2010

 

Just give me an entry date when your ready...... :~)))))))))))x

17 Feb, 2010

 

OK ;-)

17 Feb, 2010

amy
Amy
 

Oh no .! I want to come to Dawns as well ,with her beautiful lake and Kingfishers ( 'cos i've never seen one ) ..I promise that I will make soup and crisps for you Dawn .....Skillen you can come and help wash-up ...LOL..

17 Feb, 2010

 

Sorted then Amy. You bring the grub and meet Skillen here. Wrap up warm though, we may have to wait a few hours before the kingfisher appears.

17 Feb, 2010

amy
Amy
 

LOL .. it would be worth it Dawn ... .. I made a nice gooey chocolate cake today I'll bring that along for the wait ... :o))

17 Feb, 2010

 

Lol indeed Amy....... I don't think so! I think it was ME that asked first and if you remember, Dawn is coming to stay with YOU. Don't you think it would be a bit rude to disappear when you are supposed to be the host? The offer of soup, crisps and gooey chocolate cake is very tempting, but I'll give it a miss on this occasion........ wash up indeed!!! :~)))))))))).

17 Feb, 2010

amy
Amy
 

Mmm skillen you are a spoil-sport .... I won't let you play with me anymore ...LOL...,

17 Feb, 2010

 

Being a spoil sport is my speciality Amy......lol. Guess what! NP is going to do a picture for me too!! I saw your Elly...... it's brill. :~))))))))))))).

18 Feb, 2010

 

I love crisp sarnies too Dawn and Bloomer !...Did anyone see that they sell squirrel flavoured crisps ? Shudder.......

18 Feb, 2010

 

It,s for my friends birthday Amy, it's a pic of her dog (scottish deerhound) :~)))

18 Feb, 2010

Amy
 

Are you joking Jane ? ..

My grandchildren have been here today they had great fun making these crisps ...

That will be a wonderful gift for your friend Skillen , she will love that :o))

18 Feb, 2010

 

Squirrel crisps Jane, how horrid, poor Cyril wouldnt be impressed. Stick to the ready salted crisp sarnies.
Amy: My mouth is watering at the thought of your choc cake, yum yum. x

18 Feb, 2010

 

Aye Dawn...heard of hedgehog ones too....yuk ! Who on earth would be wanting to eat those....................

Amy...sadly..no joke : o (

18 Feb, 2010

amy
Amy
 

How horrible , what's wrong with these people Jane ?

Sorry Dawn , the Grandchildren make a big hole in the chocolate cake today , there might be a few crumbs ..LOL...

18 Feb, 2010

 

You are the best Grandma ever Amy - the crumbs will be OK for me.

18 Feb, 2010

amy
Amy
 

LOL... :o))

19 Feb, 2010

 

On the cake baking topic...I decided to make a coffee cake yesterday..what a fiasco,and never done it before.It was supposed to be 6oz of everything,and stupid me only added 3oz each of marg and sugar instead.!Yes,I know they add up to 6,which must have been my thinking too. doh. It was already in the oven when I realised what I had done,as they weren't rising.They wouldn't ,would they? Anyway,ever optimistic,with these 2 flat looking hard things..I have filled and iced them,but drawn the line at decorating them with walnuts..Too expensive to throw away...ha ha.Just be glad,none of you are coming to my house for tea.!
Wonder if the birds will eat it,or will Russell ? not going to mention it,and await his reaction...will let you know the outcome....He loves me,he loves me not :o))

19 Feb, 2010

amy
Amy
 

Oh Bloomer ! how I did laugh just what I needed ... LOL... you made my day ... . I would come to tea it would be worth it for the giggle .. .,
PLease let us know what Russell says , he might not notice ( he is a man )
LOL...

19 Feb, 2010

 

Amy,glad I made you laugh,I laughed at myself today too,having the cheek to try and make a silk purse out of a sow's ear! ha ha.He might notice unless he has to go to Dentist for a filling,or worse still,goes to the shed for his wood saw! :o))
you would be welcome anytime Amy,I make a good crisp sarnie,though...

19 Feb, 2010

amy
Amy
 

Thanks Bloomer .. . if I hear the sound of a chainsaw on my way through Yorkshire I'll zoom in to see whats cooking ..LOL...

19 Feb, 2010

 

Amy,surprise, surprise,...The coffee cake wasn't half as bad as it looked,and not even dry! So no Dentist,and no saw Lol.Russell laughed when I told him,and as he will eat mostly anything,cake wise,he tucked in.I chanced making a chocolate cake yesterday,and it is perfect:o))good job too,as its for my daughters birthday tomorrow and its her favourite.I still decorate it and put only one candle on now (no room for 31)ha ha. ....

22 Feb, 2010

Amy
 

I'm pleased to hear it turned out o.k Bloomer , I did wonder if you could pour hot custard over it and pretend it was a pudding ..LOL... ..
I'm sure your daughter will love the chocolate cake , Wish her a happy birthday from me , .. my daughter is 41 and gosh dosn't that make me feel old , actually I don't feel old but I know I must be ..LOL..
I have a new recipe that I found for choc. cake the grandchildren love it , it has syrup in it and if you put a spot more in than you should it makes it a little gooey , my hubby loves it like that as well ....good luck with the party tomorrow .. :o)

22 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks Amy,I did wish her a Happy birthday from you.Your choc cake sounds nice,ours was too,.and I gave them the other half to take home.Mine is from a very old Bero book,which was my mum's,and I have had it for 30 years at least.It has carnation milk in it,and is so mmmm.! I was very indulgent and naughty,as I also made a trifle for afters,as haven't made one for ages..choc cake came later on with a cuppa.:o)) So,it was "cholesterol in abundance ".Its only once in a while.,and the pleasure far outweighed the guilt.Lol.

23 Feb, 2010

Amy
 

I'm pleased you had a great party time Bloomer , I like the sound of your cake with the carnation milk in , perhaps you will let me have the recipe some time ! Having said that I have to go and have my B.P and Cholestrol checked on Friday , they are not happy with it ... but then I don't have to eat it myself do I ...:o)

23 Feb, 2010

 

They look delicious Amy!!
