300 blog entries and counting...

Last night we held a dinner party attended by Melissa and her new boyfriend George and Glyn and Charlotte (who works with Pete).I cooked Lasagne from scratch - a meat one for 4 of us and a vegetarian one (without garlic) for Melissa. As George is potentially the fussiest eater on the planet, I made him a rather plain chicken breast. I had intended making my paprika chicken, but he wouldn't like that and then thought about onions, peppers and some white wine, but guess what?!

I also made a huge rustic loaf of bread, which turned out great - you know how bread making is not an exact science and the results are always variable.
The guests brought desert and Melissa purchased a box of "jelly willies" to put on the cheesecake for some reason (see picture). Strange people!

Now the cleaning up must begin.

This is another tick on the kitchen list...

- Visit the local comedy club
- Go to the dog track DONE
- Cycle into London
- Watch the local non-league football team DONE
- Visit Pete's Uncle and Aunt in Oakham DONE
- Go to both local theatres
- Have more dinner parties DONE
- Poker night
- Go on a photo treasure hunt in London


  1. Congratulations on the 300th post.

    Gotta say that you are a very gracious host to create two different lasagna's and then the chicken. Also, the bread looks fantastic. Glad to hear that the dinner went well. Party on!

  2. Apparently all of the FUN people live in the U.K.

  3. Some say "gracious host", other say "mug"

  4. Penis cake always has to be a winner, no?

  5. Congratulations on the 300th...
    Jelly cake seems nice. Did everyone got to get one?

  6. Congratulations on 300! That bread looks delicious. Not too sure about the gummy willy, though. I can just imagine the flavors...
