MM dont go to work with a bladder infection you fool . . .you’ll just make it worse and you know that you’ll end with a visit from nurse elmo. (BTW – in case it doesnt translate very well – using ‘you fool’ in a sentance in the UK is an affectionate term and not meant to indicate you are stupid or dim witted in any way :-) – Posted by Wolfie on November 08, 2012, 10:29 AM

LOLOLOLOL!!! – I had such a good laugh!! You are so cute. I didn’t go to work yesterday but I did go today. It was not that bad

BTW – Where is Asti?? She has not been here in a few days.

Good evening!

My apologies if you have missed me. I have been hibernating against the pain in my tooth. The antibiotics have kicked in so, so I am feeling semi human, even if I am still existing mainly on painkillers!

I am all alone. Everyone else has gone off to a firework display. Since I worked overtime again today, I declined to spend any further time on my feet being cold. So I’m having a quiet night in.

Ironsos, what a nice way to be inundated!

Oh, AST, I forgot about the tooth! I’m so sorry you are still in pain.

I love fireworks but I don’t blame you for deciding not to attend if you have been on your feet all day and you are still hurting.

Lol, Lady Hawke, that’s ok. There is not much pain, but it is VERY sensitive.

Hi, Josephine! yes, it was Monday. And yes, I love the lovely pills!

First chilly day in new place and I am quite comfortable. In the old place I would already be
camped in front of my heater. Not their fault that the apt. was shaped like a long cave. Much
less area to be covered here.

Just made an applesauce cake. The cake talk got to me too. I also made some instant vanilla pudding to put on top of it.

IRONSOS, I’m glad you are more comfortable in your new place.

MM, glad you are feeling better and can contemplate cooking something.

I first came across Somerset Apple Cake on a four-day holiday in Glastonbury in the early l990’s and thought it was delicious. A short while later a new tearoom opened in my nearest town and they had several cakes available on the menu one of which was apple cake. The lady who provided these cakes was very good and I noticed that she added orange zest to her apple cake and it was a good addition. It could be served cold or hot with whipped cream on the side, I preferred it hot. Several recipes on the net include sultanas or raisins or dried fruit to the recipe but I don’t recall having this addition, and the varying contents and methods are enough to make your head ache, but all the ones I perused used freshly peeled and chopped apple because many people were using home-grown fruit.

A few weeks ago I lost a horse’s head charm from my celtic-inspired bracelet and I was bereft, I regarded it as my online name identity charm. Today it’s replacement arrived so I am very pleased.

Earlier today I caught the final fifteen minutes of the Lord Mayor’s show parade in London on TV. I love to watch this because it is so full of history because of the regalia worn by many taking part and the reminders of all of the craftmen’s guilds which are still in existence.

Must do some ironing, I have a funeral to attend on Wednesday.

Good evening!

A pleasant, quiet day here. Took daughter to her swimming lesson and the Library this morning, and she has been immersed in books most of the day. I decided to cook a big batch of beef stew for the freezer….. Stewing steak with carrots and onions, slow cooked in beef stock, balsamic vinegar, Guinness, and Worcestershire sauce. It is a new recipe, and, if I may say so, very delicious. I am looking forward to eating it!

I also found a recipe for hazelnut chocolate truffles, which daughter and I will be making very very very soon. They look gorgeous! I am thinking they might make good Christmas presents for her teachers.

Graymayne, sorry to hear about the funeral. And the need for ironing!

Ironsos, how are the new cooking arrangements working out?

I did not think to say. Yesterday I think I mentioned my daughter wore her Belatrix costume to school for Black Out Day. It was amended a bit to represent the Celtic Goddes Morrigan, at least in her mind. When she arrived at school one of the teachers confiscated her wand for the day. They said it was a weapon. Hmmm, a representative wood reproduction of a genuine imaginary weapon. I know they won’t allow toy guns or knives but this was a representative reproduction of an imaginary weapon. It makes you think they believe magic is even more real than we do.

ASTI, hazelnut chocolate truffles sound lovely. The stew sounds even more so. I wish I had some. The balsamic vinegar and Guinness sound fabulous. You always see potatoes in stews made over here as well as the carrots and onions, sometimes celery as well.

GRAYMAYNE, you’ll probably find the charm now you have purchased a replacement. Do you like the replacement better than the original? I lost my keys last week so I am functioning with my backups. I looked into having a new car key cut but it has a chip in it and was going to cost me $74 (46.5 pounds) to have a new one cut. The gentleman at the shop advised me to wait. He said if I spent the money to have a new one cut I would find the keys immediately.

Sorry to hear you have a funeral to attend.

IRONSOS, I am curious too about how you are managing the cooking.

Asti and Lady Hawke: So far I have not been bothered by the lack of fried foods. In fact I am not missing them at all.
Nuking already cooked meats are an option I have already done. Veggies are easily cooked and canned soups and
stews are always available. The small fridge means I need to get out and shop more often which is a good thing. The
weather needs watching(6" of snow today) though. So far I am happy happy joy joy with the new place.

Ironsos I lived with only a microwave in the kitchen for a summer once. We had a gas problem in a home we lived in Texas back when we were financially strapped. It took us a whole summer to gather the money to fix the gas problem in the house. Anyhooo – I got very adept at cooking in the microwave. I used to cook barbque chicken, Meatloaf, potatoes and this wonderful stew all in the microwave. This was before all the wonderful ready to heat microwave food available now. I am sure you have discovered all of these.
