It is so nice to have two of my daughters home at present. We had a family dinner last night and 10 of us enjoyed a yummy meal. We had Cold Meat Pie, peas, Mushroom Risotto and crayfish salad with homemade mayo (my mum's recipe which my brother made). For dessert D3 suggested I make the Thermomix recipe for Sticky date pudding. We served it with icecream and everyone enjoyed it.
We all sat around the table and as always had a wonderful noisy time.
D3 asked me to make a pot of chicken soup. It was very easy to make and delicious. Here is the recipe:
Chicken Vegetable Soup
3 large sticks celery
500g diced chicken
2 litres stock
Dice celery and onion. Grate the remainder of the vegetables. Place all in a large pot, bring to boil and simmer until cooked.
Option: 10 mins prior to cooked add some soba noodles.
On Saturday hubby was in a 'repair' mood and fixed a dodgy door handle, then spent quite a while on the coffee machine replacing some seals and giving it a real good service.
It works so much better. Next time I don't think we will leave it as long before a service. It's like new!!
I am currently working on crocheting a baby blanket. I will keep you updated with progress. It should not take long as it moves about with me and is easy to to.
Off to do some more.....Dot (wait for it, I just heard the popcorn machine, we are in for a treat)
