What a great idea! Yes, I'd put it in the Social Club. Or the Culture Club?

Seems fine in either, except...

Serve immediately."
Sounds delicious :grin:

I think possibly the Culture Club, provided we get some ethnic recipes but we already have Alan's curry so that is hopeful.

OMG Nick, how can you not like mushrooms? Was this some trauma in the high chair you've never recovered from? My problem with mushrooms is refraining from eating them all raw before it's time to add them to the dish.

That's the trouble. Stay away from the forum for a couple of days, and things get out of hand!, So. Let's see now. Hmmm.

Pretty indifferent to aubergine, but courgettes seem like a good alternative.

Judging by the state of my fridge, definitely the Culture Club! BTW, today's trivia question: what is the alternative meaning of "guernsey"?

After so many years of practice, Noggin, quite easily :grin: But I'll save mine for you. :love:

I'm still waiting to see if anyone knows the meaning of 'guernsey'....

Queasy but unbowed. The kind of feeling one gets when discovering a plastic compartment in a fridge in which thing are growing.

Lewist, I like it too - but how do you manage to be so positive all the time? Is it the vegetarian diet?

My avatar was starting to depress me, so I've changed it. To a nice pic of a Racoon.

Gold star for Alan in the front row! And I like the new avatar.

Another favourite of mine is "pelling"

Any ideas?

Is it a mispelt word? 'There are a lot of pellings in this document'.

No, but that would be a good guess, Moonbeam. Pelling is not a miss-pelling, as it were, it's another very useful addition to the English language. An answer will be given soon if no-one knows.

That may well be true, Alan, but I'm just wondering how this may usefully be slipped into conversation......:puzzled:

However with the influx of tourists, the region is undergoing a metamorphosis, with the roads being repaired and hotels being set
up.

We're going to Pelling for our holidays this year :laughter:

Hey people!

I hope I am doing this correctly. The post above me was unnumbered so I just continued from the post before that; hope I haven't screwed up everything. I'd hate to make us start back from 1,000,000 :puzzled:
