5th January 2010

There is nothing like a nice home cooked meal to warm you up when you've been out in a snow blizzard is there?



I have to say that I think my first cooking attempt went down quite well, I made Chicken and Ham Lasagne which I suppose in itself sounds quite easy but I made the chicken stock from scratch and even though I had a bit of a problem getting the sauce to thicken ( in the end I just threw in a bit extra flour ) I really was quite surprised at how long or should I say how short an amount of time it actually took to do. No longer than using the prepared sauces in a jar and a heck of a lot tastier. The boys enjoyed it too which was a good thing but the main test will be what Hub thinks of it tonight when he gets home from work .... I'll be in bed when he gets in so won't find out until the morning - fingers crossed.



Now, what meal shall I cook next ... where's the cookbook :-)

I looks gorgeous Lisa. Did you watch the Hairy Bikers: Mum knows best show tonight on BBC2. It was really good and you can download all the recipes from the BBC website.

Wow that looks like one rather tasty lasagne and your right a home cooked meal always taste better than a packet one.

Gorden Ramsey would be proud of that one well done you. What times tea tomorrow.
