    We’ve recorded it.
    Son is veggie and husband and I are making the effort to eat less meat.
    Any tasty veggie recipes are most welcome.

    Yes! I'm going to try the cottage pie next week!

    I'm not sure where to get dried porchini mushrooms from? Not sure if I've seen them in the shops?

    Sainsbury’s sell them.

    As I’m sure @littleme me will know.

    :)

    Tesco do too and probably the other main supermarkets.

    Obviously I've not been looking hard enough!

    Whereabouts would they be if they're dried?

    In Sainsbury's they would be on the World Foods/ Speciality Foods Isle, right above Jamie Oliver's beloved preserved lemons! :) (or Sainsbury's stafford, in the Isle that leads to Argos/Fish counter.... In any other supermarket just ask at customer services & they will show you.

    If you do that at Tesco in Stafford they will glare at you for interrupting their conversation and then rudely point to the isle where they are.

    I'm sure that @Lucy wouldn't, although she would only be dealing with the non-food area....

    Results are in!!

    IMG_20190909_193110.jpg

    I followed the recipe to a T (which is unusual for me!!)
    It made 2 batches for the freezer plus one mini one for today!
    I personally think it was a little dry, I would add more water next time, but not sure this it was because I made it in a small dish?
    I would also cut the vege chunks smaller, but perhaps that personal preference!

    Otherwise I would give it a 7/10 (due to dryness) definitely potential for higher rankings next time!

    Is this the Cottage pie? We haven't tried any of the recipes as yet, (only cos we are boring and have already done our meal plan/shop for the month), I think he's (Jamie) on tonight, but we will have to catch up later in the week...

    Our veggie meals this week are Frittata (Wednesday) and veg curry (Saturday), not vegan I know, bug we are making a start... :)

    I really like Piers Morgan.
    Interesting, intelligent, funny and not afraid to speak his mind.
    I don’t agree with everything he says, but I find him very entertaining.

    In today’s world most people are trying to be liked. So quite a lot of people in the public eye tend to moderate what they say so that they gain maximum popularity.
    I find it really refreshing that Piers really doesn’t care, he just says it out loud.
    And I absolutely love that. The courage to speak out.

    Not many people do that.

    Not many people are willing to publish, on the front page of a National daily newspaper, faked photographs of British troops abusing the Nationals of a country where British troops are currently serving, and thus endangering all of their comrades to extreme hostility because of it.

    Not many people do that.
