Change of plan. Not as much of the casserole as I thought.

Now having ham & asparaus pancake rolls. These are as they sound; three asparagus spears blanched in boiling water wrapped in a slice of ham which is then wrapped in a pancake (Shrove Tuesday type, home made). Two pancakes per person, placed in an ovenproof dish, covered with cheese sauce. topped with some grated extra mature Cheddar and baked in the oven until brown and bubbling.

The casserole is being liquidised and made into soup which we'll have for lunch.

I've always enjoyed cooking although these days it's not so easy as I have to sit down most of the time and I tire very quickly. I do try and make most of my own food and, until recently, made my own bread, albeit in a breadmaker.

I like to know what's in my food and therefore eschew almost all pre-made/pre-cooked stuff except traditional things like my breakfast meat (continental salami etc.) but I know that is not full of things I might find objectionable as they are carefully controlled by law in their country of origin.

We're very lucky nowadays in having a number of delivery services available so that, even though I might live in the back of beyond, we get a full delivery of just about anything we want, any day including Sundays.

Well worth it Malcolm. They are crunchy and go with anything really.

We had a chicken curry this evening. We cheated and used a jar of tikka Masala, some peppers, onions and a pack of chicken breasts from Aldi - which is about 500 yards away. We had to do without naan or popadoms - they did not sell them.

This was accompanied by a really nice Douro red wine which cost the enormous sum of 2.79 euros

Afterwards I had a couple of the lovely big juicy navel oranges that have just come into season here followed by a Danone Activa Yoghurt

Oh.......and a helping of indigestion.

Dry griddled tuna with caper berries, olives and tiny bit of fresh chili with a touch of olive oil with pasta (haven't decide which, yet) and a simple salad.
