    Any sausage fans out there if you see sausages from Wenlock Edge Farm grab 'em. You wont be disappointed, Had the pork, bacon & leek variety the other night with caramelised red onion and wine gravy and mash, brilliant.

    Got to give this place a plug again http://www.thevine.co.uk/ called in last night on the way home from work. As usual a great atmosphere, really friendly service and very reasonable prices. Two starters, two mains, two naans and a side of chips, two pints £22.65.
    Very basic decor, well it is still a pub, but just really like the place.

    This evening I have mostly been eating cream cheese stuffed inside peppers stuffed inside chicken thighs wrapped in, of course, smokey bacon. This was served with a mixture of ham/cheese and spinach/ricotta tortelina in a tomato, chilli, garlic and mascapone sauce. On the side were portablla mushrooms stuffed with haggis and a small amount of black pepper boisan.

    Nom bloody nom!

    I actually enjoy cooking more than eating, so it'd be an idea! I usually cook something nice once a week, in the past its just been curries/chillies etc. and the odd chilli lasagne (now that is damn tasty). I am however currently enjoying inserting things into things, it started with chickens but where will it end? :strange:

    The baked mushrooms are definitely my current fad, loving them. I started out with cream cheese etc. but the haggis works really well, just need to half cook the shroom first. The black pepper boursin on top worked great too, wasn't sure it would but there was just enough to bake a slight crust on without it properly melting through the haggis.

    Best part of all, is its all cooked on the cheap. The chicken thighs are about £2.50 a kilo from lidl, the peppers stuffed with cheese were 50p a pot from the guy in the market who sells short dated stuff (and the oil they were in was used to baste the thighs to help them crisp). The bacon was in my freezer already but was only one rasher per thigh anyway. The shrooms cost a quid for a pack of mini portabellos in Sainsburys (were 10 in my pack), the haggis was stuff I got at burns night then froze (used about 50p worth on 10 shrooms). Pasta I cheated on, 65p a pack from lidl and the sauce was a mix of 3 jars I had that needed using. Cost about 9 quid in total to serve 5 people, and was bloodly lovely :D

    And my weight is suffering, I've finally exceeded 11 stone :(

    Large spuds cut into wedges topped with black and cayenne pepper then dry-roasted in very hot oven, when they're just about done put some salt on them then fry a couple of eggs (over-easy) wash this down with a nice red......
