Clementines.  Tried these for the first time on Saturday.  Yum.
Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

That surprises me Reg, i was selling those by the bucket load back in the early 80s when i worked at a fruit and veg shop. If you like your citrus fruits, keep your eyes open for one called a minneola, which is very nice.

Made my first ever home-made soup tonight, in my stock-pot.

Main ingredients - 1 potato, 2 parsnips, a small swede, 3 carrots, 1 onion.

Plus, 2 red chillis, a sprinkling of curry powder, 3 cloves of garlic, a handful of fresh chives, some olive oil and of course salt and black pepper.

First sweated everything bar the stock for 15 minutes to get everything coated in the oil, then about a pint and a half of chicken stock, simmered for 20 minutes, then liquidise to make smooth.  Put it back on the hob to heat up again, and had some with some soft bread.  Scrummy.

Housemate had a bowl too, and pronounced it a success, and the rest has gone in the fridge - will heat it up on Weds probably.  Cheap as chips, filling, bloody tasty, and pretty easy to make.

This is the recipe I started with:

Any top soup recipes peeps?

Can heartily recommend  the chicken and ham pie @£1.49 a slice from Sainsbury's Deli - top stuff

We are getting an organic veg box delivered every fortnight and it's encouraging us cook our way through the lot. Great stuff.
Why isn't there a sarcasm font?

A cup of coffee with a bag of Walkers cheese and onion crisps, and a KitKat, while the beef joint roasts in the background.

There was a few of us there Rob and from memory , i can certainly remember the following
Appetizers(all put in the middle)
Song Pi Nong
Koo Senaha
Gung Yang Teriyaki
Ped Chom Yung


From the maincourses there were a good few

Pad King with Duck
Pad Kraproa(King Prawns, King Scallops and monkfish....heavenly)
Nuer Yang Teriyaki(sirlion steak based)
Dusit Curry( a special of the house with sea bass in chilli and mushrooms...the winner)

The staff went tremendous, and the rice and noodles just kept coming.
We also had some red wine and i remember the Chilean Merlot and a Peppertree Shiraz from Oz

Best grub i've had in a long time

Well worth a visit if in Edinburgh
