    Thursday's best = G'daughter made me pancakes (large English type) for tea, with Maple syrup (Thanks Canada) and a cuppa tea.
    At 10years old I don't think that is bad. I showed her how to make them last week and either I or Mum and Dad have had them made every day since!!
    Need to think of another dish for next week.. any ideas pls?

    I do have a carob cake that is done in the blender and then 8mins micro wave. A dream to do but I am showing her the 'old-fashioned' methods, ie without mixers and blenders etc - she does prefer it too.
    Hope it will stand her in good stead sometime.

    Ah, now you have touched on something...
    I have been intending to make our own pasta. Just rolled out with a rolling pin and cut into ribbons before a little air drying and into the pan.

    I have the flour ready.
    Just need to get ME into the right frame of mind... as you know I suffer (and that is the word) from thyroid deficiency. Means I have "Mind willing - body weak" syndrome. Got tablets but (???efficient).
    Have to really find that bit of get-up-and-go thingy.

    Hubby used to buy pizza bases and put own ingreds on. It was the only foriegn dish he would eat = a very traditional Britian.

    Ollie: Are they the HUGE pancakes (more like a cake really)?
    Also, we used to make our own pasta (when I was a kid) - big pile of flour then drop some eggs in the middle and fun fun fun kneading it all together, then using the hand-cranked pasta/spaghetti/fettucini,etc maker. Great fun when we were kids (I have two older sisters).

    Ah those were the days.. when we had relatives staying over in the midst of an England/Canada transition. I think we had 6 extra people staying over then...fond memories.

    I miss my childhood. :sad:

    Put it this way: I was an only child too and understand the effects of that. My Granny was around when I was that age and lived very near too. We spent a lot of time together until she decided to move down the country to be near her son and his children.
    We baked in her oven that was part of the coal fireplace. A cast iron unit that we call a 'range' I think these were the same in Merka.

    The best thing that happened to me yesterday was that Hubby found a skunk up here in the Dales. Yep a real live skunk. The funny thing was that it sprayed him. Well, I say funny, it was gaggingly awful. Ugh the stink was terrible. He was banished from the Fishery Lodge and sent home to strip on the doorstep and go have a shower whilst I put his clothes in the bonfire! ha ha, how we laughed.

    The best thing that happened to me today was that I talked to Opal and Lizzie and they are loving their new school and are making friends. Also, my son is doing good with his new job. He is in training to be a manager for Waffle House, ( a great place to eat in 26 states and open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year... and 366 in leap year.) He gets a 1 week paid vacation every 3 months and hopefully will bring the girls to see us one of those weeks during school break.

    Best thing yesterday - we went to Sheffield because my sons ice hockey team were in the finals for the league cup. 4 teams go - 1st in league plays 3rd and 2nd plays 4th. Then the losers play for 3/4 places and the winners for 1st & 2nd. Eldest got man of the match for his first game (he's the netminder). Yougest had to work so came up later for the final and scored 2 goals and assisted one. They were the winners - 6-5. Champions!!!!!!

    I should have said - they beat Kingston in the final, and beat Bradford in the earlier semi-final. Bradford then went on to beat Manchester for third place.

    There are big road closures around there today - they demolished two huge cooling towers overnight. We saw it on the news today. Glad I haven't got to go to Sheffield today though - roads will be chaos!

    aw CC. My mum in law plays the organ in her church on Sundays. She makes folks laugh cos she tends to drift off in her own little world sometines and either plays verses not wanted or stops early. You can sometines cut the atmosphere with a knife as folk hold their breath wondering what shes gonna do. Hee hee. worth a seat in the pew just for that. Also, Diane, skunks are definitely not native to this country. RSPCA says this was his second skunk in his 20 yrs and that he has seen one racoon that was loose in an old folks home of all places. It was rifling through the pantry! Racoons are not native either.

    *Jello* is sugar flavored gelatin, added to boiled water and then hardened in the frig in a mold. What's your name for that? Is a brand name. But its also the only thing we call it. I think. What say, other Merkins?

    Jelly and jam are boiled and sugared fruit that we use on what Ace said - PBJ sandwiches!

    Jam is fruit preserve spread on bread or slapped in a Victoria sponge or in a doughnut...mmmm...whereas jelly is dissolved in water, poured into a dish or mould (sp., Diane!) and set in the fridge (sp., Diane!). As Caitlyn would definitely be aware...because of her monstrously high IQ inherited from her Grandmother...:) :whorship:

    LOL - it seems that we may have settled the jam/jelly/jello thing:

    UK - Jam = US - Jam
    UK - Jelly = US - Jello
    US - Jelly = UK Jam (although there is a technical diff between Jam and Jelly that someone else needs from the US needs to tell us about...)

    But now for mold/mould.

    US *Mold = a small furry growth or to cause to have shape or a hollow container..."
    Remember, we don't tend to add unnecessary *U's* to everything. ;)

    LOL CC!! Jelly is gelatine, water, flavouring and colouring (with their 'u's!) that sets in the fridge, jam is as CC described - with or without seeds and 'junk'!

    Wow I haven't read this post in a loooong time. But anyways back to 200 posts ago I just wanted to say congrats to Red for Uni!!:D And Ace I understand the whole getting marked down 2. I think my biology course will be marked down a grade lower because the teachers were going too easy on the "browny" (suck up kids) and becuase of that the international marker believes that the teacher is being too easy on everyone and so they are downgrading everyone's marks!!!! It makes me so mad:angry: But oh well, life goes on and theres always hencam:D

    HA HA CC Re; the racoon face thing. you crack me up girlfriend! Ace, I was gonna go down the road to the festival at Colne but got to work. woopee! Hope it was good. We like the Hamsters and are going to see them there later in the year. Hey Diane. Berb (hubby) getting hit is sounding more like his own fault, He apparently picked it up by its tail. FOOL! Dang that man is stuuupid some times! what did he expect. Hee Hee. We are in the Craven Herald thought this week (local paper here) and my eldest Flip is in the picture with the skunk.

    Cake - I think that might be a first. I'd love to know his thought process. Or lack thereof... If his policy is the direct approach with the most lethal area of an animal - better keep him away from scorpions, vipers, lions, etc.

    I'm afraid to ask how Flip and the skunk could appear in the same photo together...?

    Diane..She was quite a way off the back end of it when the pic was taken. We tried to distract the skunk. Also, Hubby doesnt believe in diplomacy in anything! Bull in a china shop is one way to describe.

    What's happened to the skunk now Cake? I assume its gone to someone who can take care of it in a responsible and caring fashion - and who doesn't mind stinking occasionally!!!

    That actually sounds cool Ollie. You are always doing something fun it seems.

    Yah - what DID happen to the skunk? Their glands can be removed. That'd be an interesting pet to have. Imagine, at Cake's cafe, all the customers are digging into their fish burgers and in walks this skunk...

    Well tommorrow marks the beginning of school and the end of my social life. I am half excited to have a task to do everyday instead of lolling around at home but I am also depressed with the prospect of limited free time:( Hopefully my love of learning gene will turn on soon:|:_piggy:

    The nice thing about higher education, is that you're (hopefully) studying something which really interests you, as opposed to HAVING to do a subject. I was made to do English A level, even though I hated pulling books to bits - I just liked reading.
