    I've heard of people 'flouncing' over a lot less than I've been subjected to here...but easier to lay this slander to rest!

    We had the other half of my home made pie tonight... steak and kidney... pig kidneys and beef fresh from the local market having never been near a freezer!

    It's not easy cooking in our kitchen at times... we had a big storm go through tonight and Dan hates thunder. The commandant was out, so Dan sneaked in the house for comfort. What can ya do...



    Yogi is more circumspect... he stays by the door, ready to bolt in case of any unexpected arrivals!



    And then we had a power cut... I was far enough in to finish the meal... takes more than this to stop a real cook.

    No offence intended Mendip, the oven tin appears to resemble a Fray Bentos tin base.
    Take it as a complement on your puff pastry
    Short crust pastry mate! When my mum taught me how to make pastry, she said there was nothing more gay than using puff pastry for a pie. That's down south anyway, don't know about up north...

    But lots of gravy for ya!



    So... pie by candlelight. Exciting for the littlun... reminded me of growing up in he UK in the 70s...



    And then the lights came back on... caught red handed!



    Aah... what does it matter. You shouldn't feed dogs from the table, but Dan's nearly 14... not like she's gonna pick up any bad habits now. A special bowl of pie was made up for Dan!

    Everyone sworn to secrecy!

    With a Thai Partner, it's been more then a decade since I've had a Lamb roast but ...

    I've never associated the term 'medium rare' in relation to Lamb/Mutton.

    Is it a new thing?

    ^Medium rare with roasts equates to being pink in the center or near the bone. Anything past that point with Lamb, you've fucked it

    Nah i dont want it rare. Lamb is better than beef for eating well done

    I dont have a meat thermometer, no. I toyed with the idea of cooking for 3 hours at 160 then another half at 180.

    Gone for 220c for 1 hour and 35 mins.

    You just reminded me i forgot to wrap it in foil

    David with Lamb I too like medium well, but its now common to see it served as medium or even medium rate. You my friend seem to have your cooking stuck in the 50's.

    Buy one, best =< $10.00 anyone with an oven can spend.

    I'm assuming by you saying you actually like your Lamb well done that you've fucking cremated it

    ^^ The good old days of overcooked meat and soggy veggies

    ^Nah it has another hour and a bit to go yet. Tge only thing I like medium rare are steaks which are easily done without that gauge.

    Why do you call that "fern tips"? Looks like Kangkong to me?
